To immerse our students in the School’s European dimension, all first-year Master in Management students experience a three-day seminar at the European Parliament. During this seminar, students attend conferences given by experts on the issues surrounding the economic, institutional and cultural aspects of European policymaking. The students also take part in a negotiation role-play to increase their insight.

Digital Transformation

Digital transformation is having a profound impact on society, the economy, the workplace, as well as on the daily lives of individuals. This seminar improves your knowledge of information technologies and infrastructures, and raises your awareness of the impacts of digital transformation (positive as well as negative).

Soft Skills for Leaders

Analyse the personality traits and behaviours that will help you to get hired and succeed in your work.

Business Strategy Simulation

This hands-on, 3-day seminar allows students to experience a computer-based business simulation that allows them to develop, implement and manage international business strategies of a simulated company.

Internships

Work placements in the form of internships or short employment contracts are an integral part of the Master in Management. They enable students to apply the theory learned in-class to real-life professional situations, helping in turn to clarify your career goals

Paid Internships

At the end of the first year of the Master in Management (from May onwards), students will have the possibility of beginning paid internships.

To graduate, students must have completed a minimum of 36 weeks of internships. However, many students choose to carry out longer internships than this required minimum, often taking sandwich years to get a longer professional experience and help finance tuition fees. While the salary offered is quite variable, most students get paid €400 to €1,900 per month during their internships.

Apprenticeships

It is possible to acquire a one or two-year apprenticeship during the Master in Management programme if you are studying at the Paris campus. Apprenticeships are available to students from the European Union aged under 30 when they start to work and who are fluent in French. Students participating in this programme variation pay no fees during this period and additionally receive a salary from the respective company they work for.

Many banks offer student loans at attractive rates, with deferred pay back. Recent ESCP students have received interest rates as low as 1%.
