Bank Loans

As an ESSEC student, you can take out a preferential rate bank loan, which covers full tuition and is repaid starting at the end of your first year of work.

Loan applicants are required to have a guarantor living in France. According to the banks, the guarantor must earn enough to cover the monthly loan payments but also either be a French citizen, a close family member and/or both. Additional fees and expenses will be the responsibility of the student.

Prodigy Finance

International Students from 150 different nationalities admitted to the Master of Science in Management - Grande Ecole may now apply to Prodigy Finance loans. Contrary to the banks in France, Prodigy does not require a collateral or co-signer. These loans are granted on the student's future earning potential and does not take into account credit history.  Students may apply online on the Prodigy website. There is no hidden fee or early repayment fee. Interest rates may vary depending on individual profiles. Funds are directly disbursed to the school in euro (€) so no exchange rates are borne by the student. Disbursement starts from September and loan application processing time may go up to a month and a half. The sooner you apply, the better. We advise you to read carefully the Prodigy website to check your eligibility before applying. 

Student Jobs

ESSEC employs its’ students in a wide variety of functions which can help towards everyday living costs. These are part time short-term contracts in for example assisting teachers, carrying out market research, helping out at conferences and events, contributing to social media, etc.


An apprenticeship is a special track within the program for students, where you alternate study at ESSEC and work at a company at the same time. Different 'rhythms' of alternating are possible. Some students do it on a weekly basis: they work for 3 days and study at ESSEC for 2 days per week. Others have a quarterly basis where they work for 3 months, followed by 3 months of studying, etc.

A big advantage of the apprenticeship over the internship is that you really are considered as a member of the company, in a real job with real responsibilities. And if financing your studies is somewhat difficult for you, then it is good to know that the company you work for pays your tuition fee. The company also pays you a salary each month, irrespective of if you are at ESSEC or at the company. Under the French law, non-EU citizens require permit (carte de séjour) which is given after you have spent one year in France before signing the Apprenticeship contract.

The flexibility of the ESSEC Master in Management makes the job search a lot easier as we can search for jobs throughout the year. The option to do an apprenticeship is the best way to not just finance the studies but also to complement the studies with valuable work experience.
