    Russian Roulette

    33:19

    Your site says 66% of grads have a job before finishing school. What do they do differently to get a job more quickly?

  • 36:26

    What's the alumni network like? Any special events?

    39:37

    You said 97% of your alumni recommend the program. What about the other 3%? Why do they not?

    40:20

    You said an alumnus got a 200.000 € salary! But I imagine the person was already a director of some sort when he joined the MBA, no?

    41:33

    Is it feasible to stay in the countries we study for work after graduating if we are international and not EU citizens?

  • 44:20

    Hi. I am particularly interested in Fahmi Ben Abdelkader's research in MENA and am wondering if courses in this program remain general or if we get to look at particular regions like the Middle East and North Africa in depth.

    46:16

    A Step Sideways

    46:30

    A Step Sideways: The name of your school is ESCP Europe but you have campuses in India and China. Are you secretly trying to achieve world domination?

  • 50:46

    Hello. If I have a startup idea, is there any guidance from the school for launching or an incubator?

    52:32

    What should we expect in the interview, and do you have any advice?

    54:10

    Are there any modules or workshops to develop soft skills?

    56:23

    Your network is indeed large, but I doubt I'd have much help from an alumnus of another campus and another program! Don't you think?
