Student's & Alumni's testimonials
“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.”
“Several key points attracted me when I discovered the MBA in International Management at ESCP. First, it is a full time MBA in two different countries, with a strong multicultural approach. Secondly, becoming a member of the ESCP 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.”
“ESCP understands how to shape a well rounded business individual and how to prepare us to the real working world with the chance of doing consulting projects with real companies.”
“The MBA in International Management offers a well-structured programme with world-class faculties, practical learning through real-life case studies, a wide range of electives, and an opportunity to study in two countries.”
