Studying at ESSCA School of Management in Paris

If you choose to study at ESSCA, you will be choosing a Business School with a history of more than a century. Created in 1909 in the beautiful Loire Valley city of Angers where ESSCA still has its largest campus, ESSCA has been present in Paris since 1993. Its present location is along the banks of the Seine in Boulogne Billancourt, to the west of the city and within easy commuting distance from the center of Paris by metro.

Internationally accredited (AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA), ESSCA is one of the prestigious French Grandes Ecoles and offers a range of Business and Master programs at Bachelor and Master level to French and international students. It has a highly qualified faculty of 370 professors, who, alongside professionals from industry and visiting faculty from ESSCA’s large partner university network, prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century business world. Entrepreneurship, Business Models and Innovation is one of the specialist research areas of the school and it is in this team of professors who have developed and will be teaching on the Entrepreneurship specialization which is part of the IBSA Dual Degree Master’s Program.

ESSCA has a long experience of welcoming international students on to its programs and the Paris International Office is careful to help students deal with all the practical questions of living abroad and adapting to a new study environment. Some places are offered in student residences close to the school and information is also given to students who want to find accommodation elsewhere.

Finally, should you want to extend your Paris experience after graduation, you have the possibility to look for some work experience for up to 18 months, perhaps in a Paris start-up or elsewhere.

Be enterprising and study Entrepreneurship in Paris!

Paris needs little introduction! One of the world’s most beautiful cities, it is renowned for its museums and monuments, restaurants and cafés and a cultural heritage which includes philosophers such as Sartre or Descartes, painters such as Monet or Degas, writers such as Balzac, Flaubert and Camus. But did you know that for the last 5 years, Paris has also figured as one of the best places in the world to study, ranking Number 1 or Number 2 student city in the famous QS rankings?

Situated in the west of the city in Boulogne Billancourt and overlooking the river Seine, ESSCA School of Management is just twenty minutes by metro from the great Paris landmarks such as the Champs Elysées or the Eiffel Tower. So as a student at ESSCA, you will have the chance both to study in an internationally triple-accredited institution (AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA) and to profit from the amazing sights and events that the city has to offer. And what better than to discover such legendary places as the “quartier latin” with its museums, art galleries, gallo-roman remains or to walk in the footsteps of Picasso or Van Gogh around the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre. The choice the city has to offer is huge.

But although Paris is most famous for its rich cultural past, it is now also recognized as one of the most attractive cities in the world for economic development, ranking 3rd in 2017 just after San Francisco and New York in a study by AT Kearney, a top American consultancy company. So alongside its museums and galleries, Paris now abounds with incubators, as a culture of start-ups takes root and begins to flourish. And it is in this culture in particular, that ESSCA has built its own incubator and its Entrepreneurship programs. So join us at ESSCA for your IBSA dual degree Master's and experience Paris old and new.
