Student Loans

France

As an ESSEC student, you can take out a preferential-rate bank loan, which covers full tuition and is repaid starting at the end of your first year of work.

ESSEC has developed a partnership with major French bank branches located in Cergy (LCL, BNP Paribas and Société Générale) to give you special terms and conditions. 

Loan applicants are required to have a guarantor living in France. According to the banks, the guarantor must earn enough to cover the monthly loan payments but also be a French citizen, a close family member and/or both. Additional fees and expenses will be the responsibility of the student.

Prodigy Finance

International Students from 150 different nationalities admitted to the Master in Strategy and Management of International Business (SMIB) may apply to Prodigy Finance loans. Contrary to the banks in France and Singapore, Prodigy does not require a collateral or co-signer.
These loans are granted based on the student's future earning potential and do not take into account credit history.
Students may apply online on the Prodigy website. There is no hidden fee or early repayment fee. Interest rates may vary depending on individual profiles. Funds are directly disbursed to the school in euro (€) so no exchange rates are borne by the student. Disbursement starts from September and loan application processing time may go up to a month and a half. The sooner you apply, the better.
We advise you to read carefully the Prodigy website to check your eligibility before applying.

US Federal & Private Loans

Many US citizens or permanent residents opt to take out the US Federal Stafford and private Sallie Mae loans. These loans can cover up to the full cost of attendance and all applicants having a co-signer in the US are eligible for these loan programs. ESSEC is listed as “ESSEC Business School", and has a code number of G30959.
