*If you plan on entering the program in September 2017, you will have the possibility to apply for inter-campus mobility for 1 semester during your second year.
This is applicable to all 1st year students from all campuses.
You will be able to choose any of the 3 campuses for this mobility, either in the Fall or in the Spring.
The allocation will be based on grades and language fluency (as applicable, eg you will need to speak French to study in Rabat), subject to available slots and visa approval.

Courses

Courses are taught entirely in English on the Asia-Pacific campus, in French on the Atlantic-Africa campus, and in English or in French on the France campus. They cover the same subject matter with a strong focus on the geographical environment.

  • Acquire knowledge in all the fundamentals of management such as marketing, finance, economics, law, productive behaviour etc.;
  • Open up your international horizons with courses on geopolitics, international trade, etc.;
  • Become truly multilingual by learning 3 languages: French and English are compulsory foreign languages for non-native speakers. 

Professional experience

Carry out summer internships anywhere in the world and gain varied and valuable experience for both your personal and career development.

  • a 3-month internship gives you a real first taste of company life and an operational experience in a junior-level position
  • a 1-month humanitarian or social work project gives you hands-on field experience and opens you up to new challenges and way of thinking

IBEA Track

The International Business Education Alliance "IBEA" is an academic program in joint cooperation between ESSEC and 3 prestigious partner universities:

  • University of Mannheim, Germany
  • Fundacao Getulio Vargas - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • University of South Carolina, USA

At the end of the 1st year, students from each school can apply to be part of the program and only ten students from each are selected. Students admitted in the IBEA-track that started in Singapore or Morocco can choose to do their first semester of the second year in both France and Singapore. The second semester of the second year will be back at the campus where they started. At the end of the 2nd year, admitted students will spend one semester at each of our partner schools. 

This is the perfect opportunity to spend time at some of the most prestigious business schools around the world, meet and interact with people from all different backgrounds and nationalities, study in several environments and by the time you obtain your degree, you will have the truly international profile sought after by employers.

Years 3 and 4

Whichever campus you choose to begin your studies, all students now, except students in the IBEA track, come together to choose to continue the program in one of three tracks, all of which focus on providing you with opportunities for more international exposure and professional experience.

Courses

You have hundreds of electives to choose from so whether you wish to stay an all-rounder and test and try many different fields or whether you may prefer to specialise in one chosen area, you will be able to do so.

Examples of courses and seminars include:
Management, Marketing Accounting, Economics, Human Resources, Information Systems, Financial Mathematics, Business Law, Operations, Entrepreneurship, Statistics, etc.

Exchanges

Whatever track you choose to follow, you will do a university exchange abroad. This will not only open you up culturally to a new country, way of life, way of thinking etc. but will improve your linguistic skills as the choice is often linked to the foreign languages you learnt in the  first two years.

This unforgettable experience will contribute to making you a more open and flexible manager, able to work in multicultural and multilingual teams and companies.

The good news is that you are not limited to 1 or 2 possibilities for your exchange but potentially have to choose from the 145+ Global BBA partners. Whatever your personal interests and links, whatever your future career goals, you are sure to find the right exchange for you!

Professional Experience

Complete your first longer internship or apprenticeship to really have an advantage in the workplace as a young graduate.

  • the final 6-month decision-making internship will see you take on a position with greater responsibilities where you can dedicate yourself to concrete projects
  • a 2-year apprenticeship contract means that you will be employed by a company and alternate between study and work

In addition to acting as a powerful career booster, it is an attractive financing solution as interns and apprentices are paid a salary and with apprenticeships, the company also covers the 2 years’ tuition.

iMagination Week

A transition from the first to the second half of your studies.

Formerly known as iXperience week, the iMagination week welcomes students from Singapore, Morocco and Mauritius to the Cergy campus at the beginning of the third year. In this introduction week, our international students learn about our campus in France and are encouraged to blend in, to develop, and to think outside the box.
