Description

The Publishing Industry and Cultural Media sectors are developing rapidly with the arrival of digital technology: new reading materials and new practices, new key players, new funding and new sales channels. However, the social and cultural economic weight of print remains the largest factor for cultural expenditure in France.

The Specialised Master (MS) in Management for the Publishing Industry at ESCP Europe, in partnership with ASFORED (France’s leader in training for the publishing industry), responds to the needs of those excelling in this field.

It is geared towards participants from various backgrounds, from sciences to literacy, who are passionate about the written word and the broadcasting of knowledge. The graduates will gain knowledge at a managerial level in the sector of Management for the Publishing Industry.
The course content focuses on a cross-disciplinary and multi-skill approach, covering all aspects of the profession including: cultural, political, economical, graphical, technological, promotional, commercial and international dimensions.

The objective of the Master is to understand, to follow and to anticipate the main developments within the market; to provide high level professionals (BAC +5, or certain applicants with professional experience) with the skills to be able to:

  • - Develop a strategic vision of the sectors in which they are interested.
  • - Offer a global and innovative approach to management and content management
  • - Understand a global view of operations
  • - Contribute to the development, the future and the renovation of markets.

In partnership with ASFORED, this course benefits from a teaching approach that alternates between the teaching of essential managerial skills and practical sessions in harmony with the realities of working in the field, in France as well as internationally.

2. Internships

Students have to do an internship for a minimum of 4 months in order to graduate (however the average length of internships is 6 months). Although the salary offered can vary, most students get paid between €400 and €1,800 per month during their internships.

A work permit is not required since the internship is a compulsory part of the curriculum. International students are therefore allowed to work with their student residence permit.

The internship is a substantial source of funding for the Specialized Master’s Programs.

3. Campus jobs

Many on-campus jobs are available (clerical work, research or other) and paid by the hour (€8 per hour).

4. Bank loans

You may apply for a bank loan to finance your studies. Many banks offer student loans at attractive rates, with deferred pay back. French banks request that you provide a guarantor in France. If you have no relative in France, we therefore recommend that you apply for a loan from a bank in your own country. Four Paris banks are known to grant loans to ESCP Europe students: BNP Paribas, BRED, LCL and Société Générale.

5. Crédit Agricole / MAEE Scholarship

Crédit Agricole/MAEE scholarship programmes may be granted to foreign students from Hong Kong (China), Italy and Poland.
Dual-citizenship candidates holding French nationality are not eligible. Important: Proficiency in French is mandatory. Application form.
