ESSEC and the University of California, Berkeley launch a double degree

ESSEC Business School has formed a partnership with the Fung Institute of Engineering Leadership at UC Berkeley College of Engineering and now offers ESSEC students a double degree with the internationally-renowned Californian university. This course leads to both an ESSEC degree and a Master of Engineering from UC Berkeley. 

Open to students in the Grande école program (Master in Management), the Master in Finance, and the Master in Data Science & Business Analytics (ESSEC & CentraleSupélec), this partnership will permit students with a scientific background to complete the Master of Engineering from UC Berkeley curriculum during the last year of their studies, with the credits transferred for their ESSEC degree. 

Interested students who wish to apply to the program will receive personalized coaching to complete their application file, and once admitted by UC Berkeley, may qualify for reduced tuition fees. A scholarship is awarded as part of the program, with students still remaining eligible for other scholarships offered by the Master of Engineering program.

This training will permit ESSEC students to benefit from a new interdisciplinary management-engineering approach, with the Berkeley program including leadership bootcamps, a technical specialization, and project experience. 

“In an international context where we can see that versatile profiles are particularly valued and more and more sought-after, this offer is a real opportunity to train leaders who will rethink the world of today and tomorrow,” adds Felix Papier, the dean of pre-experience programs at ESSEC.

This double degree offers increased career opportunities, in particular in the United States and in Silicon Valley. After receiving the degree, a residence permit for a two-year stay in the United States may be granted.
