My name is Alexandre. I am a French student who is currently in his second year in the Global BBA program in Singapore. Having studied in Singapore for the last 14 years at the “Lycée Français de Singapour”, I really want to find a school that is known for its Excellency and gave me the opportunity to meet new people and culture. For this reason, I chose ESSEC Business School. I was largely inspired by the “pioneering spirit” of ESSEC.
I chose to be part of the Global BBA program due to the fact that it provides not only an exclusive education about the fundamentals of business but also the connections with a large and diverse alumni network. Also, the Global BBA program consists of inter-campus exchanges located in France, Singapore and Morocco. In addition, students also have the choice to study either in French or in English as well as learning new languages like Japanese and Spanish. There is a certain liberty that ESSEC has that other schools do not when it comes to education thanks to the diversity of the Global BBA program.
I decided to start my ESSEC journey in Asia. Singapore is the center of geopolitical interest where its position in politics and its rapid economic growth has created a circle of influence not only in South East Asia but also at an international scale. Therefore, at ESSEC Asia-Pacific campus, we can see Singapore’s melting pot where people from different cultures meet up, interact and live in harmony.
For this reason, as someone who already has gone through the application process and that is now studying at ESSEC, feel free to ask any questions whether or not it is about the program, the campus or about the student life in general.
