Never say that ESCP Europe is a French school. Is its name not self-explanatory? With its campuses in 5 European capitals, ESCP affirms its international dimension, but also its urbanism. This 2-year Master in management programme has been designed to fit with holders of a bachelor degree in any field. Twenty specialisations are available (for instance Finance, International Business, and Entrepreneurship) and completed with case studies and seminars. A pre-master year permits students holding a two-year degree to integrate the programme.

Ranking: Master in Management #7 worldwide (FT)
Duration: 2/3 years
Location: Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, Torino

    Expert question

    22:22

    Expert question : your DNA is based on the international and multicultural experience you get when coming to your school. The problem is that today, ALL schools have this international experience, with a third of students being international. What is your strength now? How do you stand out?

    How hard for an architect is to get into the MIM program, as it's a totally different background from business.
