Testimonial 

I signed up to the MBA in International Management to do something that was fulfilling and worthwhile. I achieved this directly through its courses, competitions, knowledge sessions, and the plethora of projects that we were assigned. However, ultimately what I treasured most were the things I learned indirectly through the interactions that I had with the people I have met throughout this whole journey. I treasure the friends I have made, the experiences they have shared with me, those that we have shared together, and lastly those we are sharing right now as we graduate. That's it in a nutshell, my MBA in International Management at ESCP Europe.”

Programme Objectives

2345Testimonial 

Several key points attracted me when I discovered the MBA in International Management at ESCP Europe. First, it is a full time MBA in two different countries, with a strong multicultural approach. Secondly, becoming a member of the ESCP Europe network is a great asset when you want to work internationally. Lastly, having the opportunity to merge both in class courses and professional experience with Company Consultancy Projects provide us a well tailored balance that I believe will be well recognised in the job market.”

You will accomplish two Company Consultancy Projects during the MBA in International Management, which allow you to put into practice the concepts acquired in the classroom. The projects provide students with collaborative and intercultural work experience on a case provided by a company. In groups of 5-6, students are expected to perform an in-depth analysis and make recommendations for actions that can realistically be implemented by the company.

You will learn how to approach an issue with a critical mindset and how to react swiftly in unexpected situations with a creative and open-minded attitude. Throughout the project, tutoring is provided by an ESCP Europe professor and/or an experienced consultant. Within the framework of the Company Consultancy Projects, dedicated workshops are carried out in:

  • Consulting skills
  • Survey and interview techniques
  • Presentation skills

We use Company Consultancy Projects at ESCP Europe in two ways: as input for our projects and, at the same time, as a recruitment tool.

During the last few years we have carried out Company Consultancy Projects regularly in the areas of marketing or communication strategies and human resources. The quality of the results and the commitment of the students have been excellent - so much so that we hired some of the students involved.

Thomas RIEGEL, HR Director, L´Oréal Luxury

Thanks to the heterogeneous composition of the team and its know-how, they did excellent, high quality work.

We experienced the team members as competent and constructive consultants who, within a very short time, familiarised themselves with a complex issue. With regard to both form and contents, the goals we established were accomplished to our utmost satisfaction.
