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 program takes place at ESSEC’s Asia Pacific campus in Singapore, which was established in 2005 and has since welcomed over 5,000 students and managers. ESSEC’s operations in the Asia-Pacific region present the perfect foothold for ESSEC to be part of the vibrant growth of Asia and to bring its expertise to the expanding region. ESSEC Asia-Pacific offers innovative academic and executive programs with Asian insights and Western perspectives. Backed by a multicultural faculty, ESSEC Asia-Pacific aims to achieve influential world-class research in Asia. The school also leverages on its Asian experience and regional network of premium academic and corporate partners to offer customized corporate and open-enrolment programs designed to suit the specific needs of organizations and individuals.
The school’s development strategy emphasizes on offering quality business education programs taught partially or fully in Singapore and other major cities, developing influential research, and augmenting ties with academic and corporate partners in the region through research, executive education and customized talent development programs.

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.
Block 1 (5 weeks): July 2 - August 3, 2018
Block 2 (5 weeks): August 13 - September 14, 2018
