Go Global with Asia's #1 Master In Finance and Master In Management


The bi-campus nature of ESSEC Business School’s flagship programmes means more opportunities for its students

When aspiring banker Megan Noelle Chew (below left) wanted to hone her technical skills and deepen her knowledge in finance, she chose ESSEC Business School’s Advanced Masters in Financial Engineering (now known as Master in Finance, or MiF, programme.


“It is highly reputable and technically challenging. ESSEC’s flagship programmes are top-ranked and provide superior qualification, and are highly respected and recognised in France and Europe,” she says.

The MiF was ranked third worldwide by the Financial Times last year, while its Master in Management (MiM) programme came in fifth.

Ms Chew, 26, enjoyed the interactive classes and appreciated her lecturers’ willingness to address queries, even outside lessons. She also liked how her internships prepared her for the workplace.

A four-month internship with Barclays led to her current job with the bank as an investment banking analyst.

ESSEC’s unique bi-campus programmes are conducted on both the France and Asia-Pacific (Singapore) campuses. For MiF, students can choose to start at either campus in the first term and opt to do the remaining terms in the other campus.

This allowed Ms Chew to enjoy industry exposure and opportunities in both the European and Asian markets, while being inspired by the diverse student body.

Fellow student Leela Ganesh (above left), 23, currently pursuing the MiM programme, also chose ESSEC for its reputation as a leading business school in Europe.

She says: “I wanted to build my international business skills and grow alongside a diverse student body and strong alumni network.”

She adds: “The programme offers unparalleled flexibility, with each student undergoing a unique curriculum. It is an advantage for individuals who are extremely keen to explore and delve into new areas of interest.”

The bi-campus programme was also a valuable experience, and gave her the chance to learn alongside students from different backgrounds, which cultivated her cross-cultural intelligence.
