Hello, Salut!


I am glad to see you are interested in joining the ESSEC community and your curiosity has brought you this far. I would be glad to share my personal experience through this journey.
I spent a short exchange semester at ESSEC Business School that convinced me to eventually apply to the program. Through this exchange experience, the Master in Management seemed like a complementary fit to my projects. The specific courses offered, and hands-on project opportunities were an asset to my chosen career path in New Ventures Consulting. Combined with the international frame the courses spread from, today I am confident this degree brings me a step closer to my goals.
What I value most about this program is how it is conclusive yet leaves enough leverage for each profile to dig deeper in their interested paths. The program structure provides enough flexibility to merge, plan and execute your academic and profession goals all along the journey. This feature personally gave me the opportunity to me to discover Chairs that allow us to directly learn from major industry actors such as Accenture representatives, and have the chance to work on applied projects with them.
Additionally, at ESSEC the learning is not only experienced traditionally. Attending class surrounded by engineers, pharmacists, and digital marketers from worldwide top schools has allowed me to build a second stream of learning experience through theirs. Working on projects with such rich backgrounds allows me to connect on different scales and build friendships.
Choosing ESSEC will leave an imprint in your life-course, but only you will leave a bigger one. The school is about people who choose to follow their own course. I have made my choice.


Now I look forward to yours! Bonne chance.
