As an ESSEC student, you can take out a preferential rate bank loan with the Cergy branch of LCL (Le crédit lyonnais), 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.
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. The apprenticeship is open under the French law to all nationalities, provided you hold a carte de séjour. It is not open to Non-European students that start their program in Singapore.
If you would like to read up on apprenticeships and student experiences, please visit the MSc in Management blog.
The flexibility of the ESSEC MSc 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.
