The MIM of ESCP Europe stands out for the international character of the study experience, quick employment, gender equality and goals reached in terms of employment and average salary, equal to 69.865 euros (81.282 dollars), ranking higher than the Bocconi University (2nd in Italy, 6th in the world), the LUISS Guido Carli (3rd in Italy, 89th in the world) and the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano (4th in Italy, 95th in the world). 98% of students who attended the master find employment within only three months from graduation.

“This ranking shows how one of the fundamental values of ESCP Europe is “diversity”, both cultural and in gender – said Francesco Profumo, president of ESCP Europe Torino Campus- . in the current society too little women fulfill leadership roles and one of our goals is to educate manager women, who will close the gender gap. In the Master in Management we even saw an overtaking. In fact, of the 892 students, a good 52% are women. This is an important signal of change, which will bring positive effect in the business world in a near future.”

“We are happy of this position: it reflects our commitment in educating the next international managers – adds Frank Bournois, Dean of ESCP Europe-. Timing couldn’t be better to celebrate our 200° anniversary.

Companies appreciate dynamism and adaptability of the ESCP Europe students and their constant will to face challenges and excel.”

Simone Santagiuliana

Equity analyst – Tikehau Investment Management, Paris

“I think there aren’t many people in Italy who finish university having done at least 3 apprenticeships and who know 3 different languages. Of course this is a great business card for a student who is seeking employment for the first time. I have chosen to live in Paris, according to the kind of job I have and the lifestyle here, which I think is well-balanced between the Mediterranean culture and the international atmosphere. I’m interested in investments and markets and here there are many small and medium companies, where competent and successful people work. It is a great environment where to learn the job and grow.”

ESCP Europe

ESCP Europe together with Tsinghua University 
for an international Bachelor’s degree between Europe and China

Starting from the 2018-2019 academic year
students of Bachelor in Management (BSc) will be able to study in Cina

 

During the three-year course students are required to change campuses once a year, in order to know the reality and the culture of three different countries. Each student will choose a different campus each year, during three years:

  • First year: London, Paris or Beijing (at Tsinghua University)
  • Second year: Madrid, Paris or Turin
  • Third year: Berlin or Paris

Three years after its launch on an international university level, the Bachelor in Management (BSc) – Bachelor’s degree programme of the ESCP Europe business school – widens its horizon thanks to the partnership with Tsinghua University of Beijing, one of the best universities in the world.

The three-year course will be held in three different countries: other than in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris and Turin, young aspiring managers will have the opportunity to study at the new academic partner, in China. Students may choose to begin in September 2018 at Tsinghua University and study for the following years in the other European branches of the business school. Courses will be the same as for first-year students in ESCP EurOpe campuses, but contextualised to the Asian market.

The Bachelor in Management is an exciting, original and engaging programme which combines different subjects: the classics of management, such as marketing and finances, with humanities, among which psychology and sociology, language and self-development courses. Moreover, it includes internships and social projects, allowing students to acquire complete multidisciplinary knowledge. The goal is to create a bridge between university and the job market, preparing students for an international career in the current extremely diverse economic sector, encouraging them to trace a new world map.

First-year lessons, including in China, are held in English, as are the lessons of the second year in Turin. While it is possible to choose between English and the local language in the following years in the campuses of London, Madrid, Paris and Berlin. The partnership will also allow students from Asia to obtain an European Bachelor in Management (BSc).

 

“As an European business school, we have chosen to develop a programme between China and Europe which is perfectly aligned with our international strategy and with our goal of training future leaders – explains Léon Laulusa, Executive Vice-President e Dean for academic affairs and international relations of ESCP Europe“Even though it is the world’s second economic power, China isn’t well-known in the Western world. Not everyone knows, for example, that in 2017 among the 500 biggest companies in the world in terms of turnover, there were 109 Chinese companies. Or that the 40 biggest Chinese companies yield over 17 trillion euros, exceeding the GDP of the whole European Union”.

 

“Chinese economy is still unexplored and offers thousands of opportunities, so it must be analysed closely – explains Prof. Francesco Rattalino, Director of ESCP Europe Turin Campus -. This Bachelor’s degree course meets the needs of young people who want to obtain a qualification as fast as possible, in order to have the best tools to face the job market in the most efficient and competitive way. ESCP Europe wanted to accelerate the development of the programme, answering the growing demand of studying in China made by students with a strong international inclination. Tsinghua University e ESCP Europe aim to the same level of excellence, welcoming students from the best high schools”.

 

“One of the greatest advantages of this study programme in China is the possibility of interaction for students from all over the world – maintains Margot Drancourt De Lasteyrie, Director of China Projects in the International Affairs Department di ESCP Europe -. Twenty years ago, I had the privilege of studying in Shanghai, but at that time international and Chinese students didn’t have the chance to attend lessons together. What better way to know a country that having local friends? The possibility of studying in China for a year further improves the internationalization of students and the international opportunities for their career”.

Since its launch, the Bachelor in Management has attracted considerable interest internationally: 286 students are currently enrolled, coming from 54 countries, 5% of them from China.

Applications for next year are still open. The deadline id July 10, 2018.
