Placed 4th worldwide in the 2016 Financial Times Master in Management rankings, the ESCP Europe MIM is a life-changing option for any career-focused student searching for both a European Identity and a Global Perspective.

Designed for students with Bachelor degrees (or equivalent) in any field of study (Master programme) or those without who have previously completed at least two years of university education (Pre-Master programme in preparation for the two-year MIM), it features more than 25 specialisations in Finance, International Business, Marketing, Sustainable Development and many more.

The integrated programme curriculum, taught across six ESCP Europe campuses, offers the possibility to obtain up to four national degrees in ESCP Europe campus countries (Germany, UK, Spain, France, and Italy ) - plus the option of dual degrees with our academic partners across the globe.

Because we value practical experience as an essential asset, Master in Management graduates leave with a minimum of 40 weeks of professional experience. This ensures that you leave the programme with not only a world-class academic qualification, but also the invaluable intercultural practical experience top recruiters are looking for.

In addition to the study-internship structure, we also offer the possibility of following an apprenticeship study track, allowing for systematic structured periods at the School whilst also working in a firm for an extended learning experience.

If you are looking for international exposure, professional experience and a curriculum recognised as one of the best in the world, look no further than ESCP Europe's Master in Management.

Triple accredited: EQUIS, AMBA, AACSB

Programme Structure

The Master in Management programme consists of four semesters with a total of 120 ECTS credits. These semesters can be completed at our European campuses (Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin and Warsaw) or at one of our 100 partner universities worldwide.

The first year is focused on advanced learning within the different fields of intercultural management through core modules.

The second year is used to concentrate on one or two options, and is also used for the writing of a Master thesis on a topic of the student’s choice. Further to this, students can choose from the rich catalogue of electives to further customise their learning experience and plan their professional career paths. Language courses are also a part of the Master in Management programme.

Beside the academic courses, 10 months of internships are integrated into the programme. Students can do these internships either in their countries of study or in a third country.

Alongside the core courses, electives and options, all students will participate in five thematic seminars. These are key elements in the Master in Management programme, with all current students coming together to benefit from the internationality of both the courses and their fellow participants.

The Pre-Master Year is devoted to gaining insight into the fundamentals of management, including introductory and advanced concepts to foster an understanding of the world of business. There are also courses in programming, law, economics and foreign languages. The Pre-Master Year combines core modules, interdisciplinary projects and an internship. Students can spend the Pre-Master Year in Paris (in French) or Turin (in English). It is for students who have a minimum of two years of university education.

During the first master year, students complete a series of core modules, covering the fundamentals and advanced instruction of general management topics.

Students with a non-business bachelor degree must study prerequisites during master year one. Students entering the MIM with a recognised bachelor degree in business/management or entering through the Pre-Master year study the core modules, and then choose some courses from the elective portfolio to customise their own timetable.

  • ESCP Europe strives to attract the best students, regardless of their financial background. As such, the School offers a selection of financial need and merit-based scholarships. Some 400 are awarded each year, representing a total of €2,200,000.
  • ESCP Europe scholarships available to European Union citizens are need-based and finance 25%, 50% or 100% of the first Master year tuition fees.
  • ESCP Europe Foundation scholarships, available to non-European students, are merit-based. The amount of the award is variable.
  • French students can apply for Higher Education Grants awarded by CROUS. Students benefiting from a CROUS scholarship (levels 1 to 7) are 100% financed by ESCP Europe, and thus do not have any tuition fee to pay during their first year of studies at ESCP Europe.
  • Sources of information on scholarships include Education UK, Campus France, DAAD (Germany), Squeaker (Germany), AECID (Spain).
  • Local Scholarships: You may also be able to obtain financial aid from your home country. Please contact the relevant local government bodies and/or foundations.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
