Global MBA
Being business savvy on your home turf is no longer enough. To succeed in today’s fast changing business world, global perspectives and intercultural competencies are essential. The ESSEC Global MBA aims to help you develop your creativity and problem-solving skills in a multicultural context, in very different business environments, and in a number of specialized areas of expertise.

The ESSEC Global MBA is a full-time MBA, offering six Majors with an overall emphasis on international markets. The digital impact currently experienced by all companies will be strongly present in the program giving it a unique structure.

You will focus on fundamental business concepts through strong academic and innovative learning approaches. You will also benefit from immersion in real-world projects and business situations through field trips and company visits, which will provide you with the skills needed to succeed in landing your future dream job.
The Global MBA is designed for high-­potential professionals looking to make a career leap.­
  • Are you motivated to fast-­track your career on an international scale by gaining relevant skills and networks?
  • Are you looking to advance to the next level of management, to start your own business or enhance your existing business skills?
  • Do you have quality post­-graduate work experience?
  • Do you have a competitive GMAT score and an advanced level of English?

You are not required to speak French. However, for students attending the ESSEC France Campus, we do encourage international participants to learn French in order to have a truly rich experience while in France or if they wish to find a job in France afterwards. ESSEC's Language Department offers a number of languages to choose from as elective course, which are included in the tuition fee.

You are not required to have a professional background in any specific specialization. Our students come from a variety of professional backgrounds and are able to realize their professional ambitions in the industry of their choice. However, before applying for the MBA you must decide which campus you want to join and in which of the six majors you want to graduate. This is because the two campuses have different offerings.
