    Tricky question: Imagination game: Let’s take a time machine for the next 2 minutes: we now fast-forward the time-location to 8 years later. You go to the alumni social event of your MBA programme: What do you see? Who do you meet? What happens in this alumni event?

    The speech


    Face to face


    Good evening. How French is your programme? Would it prepare me to learn the French culture of business so that I can enter into the multinational companies based in Paris to a managerial position? 


    Is this an MBA with a specific specialization or a general one?

    I would like to address the question to the student Purnima who is currently a student of this program. How has your journey to Essec been? What have been your unique experiences as a student of this program? 


    Expert question


    Expert question: We can maybe say that an MBA is one of the most expensive pieces of paper; not only the diploma itself but also the opportunity cost of the 12 months pausing the professional life! Tell us: is this a cost-effective investment for those who are already earning a satisfactory salary?

    Hi! Actually, I am from Singapore. One term in Singapore is not that attractive for me. Do you offer any other options for cases like me?   


    Do I need economics or business background to follow the courses? What are the preferred bachelor's degree or current professional sector by the admission's office? 


    What is the kind of placement support you offer to your students? Placement is an Indian concept where companies visit the campus and recruit them right at the campus. Does that happen at Essec? 


    Could you tell us more about the Capstone project during the summer and is it compulsory? What if I am not interested in consulting firms?

    Hello Purnima! Is it difficult to find a job post MBA in Europe? As most of the European countries have strict visa policies for international students.

    What is the ambience like during the courses? Is it interactive? How many students in class? 


    I find that the Essec global MBA course does not have a comprehensive list of courses in Marketing for example. If I am looking at a deep knowledge in a particular functional area, would an Essec MBA be suitable for me?


    Hi! I am from Malaysia and I am confused if this programme is for students from developed countries trying to enter into the emerging markets like in my home country.
