ESSEC Business School: launch of the GLIMPSE dual degree program

ESSEC Business School has signed a new partnership with KU Leuven Faculty of Social Sciences, Seoul National University Graduate School of International Studies, and KDI School of Public Policy and Management for the GLIMPSE dual degree program.
The 24 European students and 24 Korean students participating in the GLIMPSE will focus on policy-oriented and business-oriented studies, and they will be granted a scholarship covering the four-year program.

The GLIMPSE dual degree program is built on the collaboration of four renowned education institutions – ESSEC Business School, KU Leuven Faculty of Social Sciences, Seoul National University Graduate School of International Studies, and KDI School of Public Policy and Management. The program will allow students to gain two degrees, one from a European institution and one from a Korean institution, with the ultimate objective of nurturing globally responsible leaders immersed in the cultures of two regions as different as Western Europe and South Korea.

The GLIMPSE dual degree program is supported by the European Commission and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of the Republic of Korea. 48 students will participate in the program over a four-year period, with 24 EU students visiting Korea and 24 Korean students visiting the EU. Students have the opportunity to study at all four institutions so as to best take advantage of the cross-disciplinary nature of the GLIMPSE dual degree program. Ultimately students will gain two degrees, covering all the core aspects of the curriculum each institution has to offer. All participants will be granted a scholarship covering their travel and living expenses for the duration of their stay in the host country.

In addition to the student mobility, the GLIMPSE dual degree program will facilitate the exchange of faculty and staff members over four years to participate in special lectures, seminars, workshops and meetings.
By combining policy-oriented and business-oriented programs, the GLIMPSE dual degree program will allow students and faculty to develop a global and comprehensive understanding of both management and public policy theories and practices in both Western Europe and South Korea.
