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 (minimum score 100, validity 2 years). 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.
Step 2: Start your online application
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.
Step 3: Upload supporting documents
- A professional résumé (1 to 2 pages maximum)
- Official transcripts of grades from all prior academic establishments, plus a copy of all relevant degrees

Step 4: Submit & send your application
Once you have completed your online application and have attached all the supporting documents, the final step is to submit your online application.
Working with a rolling admissions process, applications are accepted at any time until the 1st of April.
The application fee is 170€ 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.
The interview will last 60 minutes in front of a panel comprising of the Academic Director, a professor, an alumni or another member of staff. The aim of the interview is for you to be able to:
- Demonstrate your motivation for completing the MSc in Hospitality Management IMHI
- Show why you wish to study at ESSEC specifically
- Explain what you hope to achieve afterwards
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
