Receive World Class Career Preparation

The ESSEC Global MBA Career Services continuously work to build partnerships with major companies and institutions in the corporate world.  Thanks to the engagement of alumni, HR and executive search firms, our team is able to kickstart your career and help you achieve your goals.

The ESSEC Global MBA Career Services have two focal points for support.

Through career-related events

  • Company presentations
  • Conferences and round tables
  • Recruitment events
  • Networking opportunities with consultants, industry managers and CEO’s

Through personal guidance

  • One-to-one career counselling
  • Professional workshops
  • Mock interviews & seminars
  • ESSEC Mentoring program
  • Individual personal development coaching

The Career services at ESSEC are one of the key pillars of the program. The strong links that the program enjoys within the luxury industry become crystal clear when one gets exposed not only to distinguished people within the top luxury brands / conglomerates but also, to ever helpful alumni who are steadily making a mark in the respective luxury companies that they work in. I have been able to nurture many a relationship across the industry and the genesis of everything, I must say, lies with the opportunities that the Career service cell initially provided within the MBA program.

Diverse Career Paths Around the World

Our MBA alumni now work in leadership positions in over 45 countries around the world. The following chart gives some examples of career paths before and after the MBA.


Join a Worldwide Network of Excellence

Become one of the 47,000 Alumni around the world

The ESSEC Alumni association currently consists of over 55 local chapters around the globe. This active network engages regularly with students, organizing events throughout the year, maintaining an exclusive directory of contacts, and promoting partnerships between current and former ESSEC students and the global business community. This is true in all sectors covered by our majors. For example, the International Luxury Brand Management major offers a great network of alumni in various luxury companies at different levels of management thanks to the 600 International Luxury Brand Management alumni worldwide educated at ESSEC over the last 22 years.  Luxury alumni regularly host cocktail evenings and get-togethers where current students are also invited.

In the same vein the AAIMHI is the Alumni Association of Hospitality Management specialists, which operates independently from the school and serves over 1,500 alumni spanning 45 nationalities and 55 countries. With more than 30 years of experience, IMHI offers a great network of alumni in the various subfields of hospitality at various seniority levels.

A word from our Career Services team

At ESSEC we believe that each one of our students is unique and we trust their capacity to design and achieve their specific target. My role as a career coach is to develop and empower the ESSEC Global MBA students by helping them assess their strengths and define their career goals.

I also connect them with recruiters, experts and alumni so as to enable them to gain exposure to the job market and to connect with professionals in the industry that they desire to work. I organize all types of career activities ranging from individual coaching sessions to workshops to company visits, inviting guest speakers and networking events. ESSEC continues to work closely and build valuable relationships with partner companies worldwide to ensure the students have a strong network to take advantage of to build a great career path.

My favorite motto is “You have the answer”.
