Step 1: Prepare the tests
As part of the application file, you will need to provide: a management aptitude test: GMAT or GRE (minimum GMAT score 550, validity 5 years), an English proficiency test: TOEFL (around 100, validity 2 years), TOEIC (around 800), or IELTS (around 7). These can take several months to prepare. Keep this in mind when registering for the exams as your application will be incomplete without these scores. ESSEC also advises that you take sufficient time to prepare to ensure that you attain the highest score possible.
To send your scores to us, please use the following institution codes:
- GRE: 0839
- GMAT: X6R-FV-41
- TOEFL: 0520
* The English test is not required if you are a native English speaker or have completed an English degree.

The application form is to be filled in online. Create your account and then you will receive an email with your login and pin number. These are required each time you sign in so don’t lose them! You can fill in the application form at your ease and come back to it at any point.

Working with a rolling admissions process, applications are accepted at any time until the 1st of April.
The application fee is 75€ which is non-refundable.
Step 5: Find out if you have been shortlisted
Your application will be fully studied by the admission committee. Each part of your application is taken into account. After receiving your application and supporting documents, you will be contacted by ESSEC within 2 weeks.
Step 6: Sit your interview
Shortlisted applicants will be contacted to organize an interview either in person on the Cergy campus or via video-conference.

Step 7: Get your results
The jury will then deliberate on your overall application and decisions will be submitted. You will be notified within two weeks if you have been offered a place in the MSc in Hospitality Management IMHI program along with support documentation for students who have to obtain visas.
French Language Requirements
Students are not required to speak French.
