    The Pitch


    Everyone says they are the leader in hospitality, including your school. What makes ESSEC the top choice for a program like this?


    What is the international recognition of this degree? I'm also considering some of the well-known programs in Switzerland.


    Is this program more focused on the business and finance aspect of hospitality, or do we learn actual customer service skills needed to work in a hotel?

  • 08:58

    I would like to integrate into the master after finishing my specialized bachelor in hotel management. Until now you have asked candidates to have 2 or 3 years of professional experience outside of internships. Is this still the case? Thanks.


    What is the e-commerce specialization about in this hospitality program? Wouldn't it be better to do a e-commerce marketing master's somewhere if I want to do e-commerce?


    How does the consultancy project roll out? I understand there are no classes during the project and it's all we do for two months.

    What is admissions competition like? How many students do you accept each year?


    Where do graduates work when they finish? Are there specific companies where there are a lot of ESSEC alumni?


    What happens during the CRASE business simulation experience?


    What kinds of apprenticeships schemes are available in conjunction with this program?

    Russian Roulette


    When do we choose our specialization? Do we have to apply for a specific one when we send our application?


    How effective is the CV book you distribute to potential employers if there are more than 500 included? Do HR managers really look at them?


    Hi Victoria! Why did you choose this program?

  • 40:35

    What's the international mix of the student cohort?


    Do you offer scholarships to international students? I don't want to take out a lot of loans.


    A Step Sideways


    A Step Sideways: If you had your own golden keys concierge and could have them do or arrange anything for you, what would it be and why?

  • 48:03

    My question is for the student: Be honest. What do you like least about this master's?


    Are we required to write a thesis to graduate?


    Do you teach us about the new trends like Mama Shelter (Philip Starck's latest concept)?


    Is there time to have a part-time job? Do students work while doing this program?

  • 57:03

    Does the school organize any events particularly for this program for us to network?
