Is this program for me?ESSEC Business School is one of the top three Business Schools in France and ESSEC's Master's in Management program was ranked 3rd in the world by the Financial Times in 2016. ESSEC is guided by the values of dialogue, creativity, innovation, responsibility, excellence and openness to the world as the basis for training tomorrow’s business leaders.
This intensive program is designed for MBA students or young professionals interested in business in Europe, intercultural relations and management practices in Europe.

Short-term exchange programs follow a two-step application process. Students first apply through Global & Experiential Education (G&EE) and then apply through the partner university hosting the program. After a student is admitted by G&EE to a short-term exchange program and we receive their confirmation of participation through the deposit, G&EE will forward the student’s name with our endorsement to the partner university. The student will be contacted by the partner university with instructions on next steps and how to complete their application (if applicable).
From this point forward, the decision to accept you as a participant in the program rests with the exchange partner institution and they will contact you directly regarding your application. Admitted candidates should expect to receive a final confirmation from ESSEC bu Mid-March.
