    Do we apply directly to the campus where we would like to study?


    I understand you market yourself as a “European” school, but in its foundation, is ESCP a French school? German?


    What’s the international recognition of this degree outside of Europe? What accreditations that guarantee its quality?

    Who Am I?

    Hi Valentina. What city track are you doing in this program? How did you decide?


    Can you give example of real-case project? Does the program focuses mainly on theory?


    Do you require a specific kind of professional experience? I have been a journalist for five years and would like to pursue business studies.


    Your site says students get professional experience through direct employment. How many students actually get jobs right out of school?
