How ESSCA MSc Global Business Management prepares hybrid students

Gwenaelle Lairet and Vincent Vigouroux explain that hybrid graduates are the most popular among employers because they possess both technical and management skills. Even if you have not studied business or management, ESSCA’s MSc in Global Business Management is open to students with different backgrounds, including STEM, Liberal Arts, and Law Graduates.

Focusing on three aspects – academic, professional and international, the program allows students to access diverse classes, teaching excellence, real projects, and internships. With classes consisting of 15-20 students, the communication between professors and students is flawless, rapid and personalized.


Admission requirements

To apply for this novel 12-month Master’s program, you’ll need a 4-year Bachelor’s degree (or 240 ECTS), minimum B2 English proficiency, and to present transcriptions, resume, and motivation letter – with the end of June being the deadline to submit your documents for the September intake. Here we should note that the program costs EUR 16,225, but many scholarships are available.

Successful applicants may have to check any relevant visa requirements and present proof of acceptance, accommodation and sufficient funds. That said, the program is ideal for people from all over the globe as one doesn’t need to know French to complete it and start networking or to enjoy and even work in Paris.
