Placed 2nd worldwide in the 2013 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.

This two-year, full-time general management Master programme provides the opportunity to study in up to three countries, with options ranging from ESCP Europe's own five European campuses* to our 70 partners worldwide.

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 20 specialisations in Finance, International Business, Marketing, Sustainable Development and many more.

The integrated programme curriculum, taught across all five ESCP Europe campuses, offers the possibility to obtain up to three national degrees in each of the five ESCP Europe campus countries (France, UK, Germany, Spain 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 39 weeks of professional experience. This ensures that you leave the programme with not only a world-class academic qualification, but also the invaluable 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 and a part-time MIM (Berlin only), 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.

*Students who wish to study in Torino must start the programme with the Pre-Master option.

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

The first year is focused on advanced learning within the different fields of management through core modules and a selection of electives (15-hour or 30-hour formats). Through these electives the students can explore one or two specific areas of interest in more detail.

The second year can be used to concentrate on one or two specialisations, 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 learningexperience and plan their professional career paths. Language courses are also a part of the Master in Management programme.

Beside the academic courses, 39 weeks 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 specialisations, all students will participate in four international seminars (one per semester). 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 social sciences, 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 or Torino. It is for students who have not yet earned their Bachelor degree (or equivalent) but who will have two years of university education at the time of application.



The admissions procedure which applies to you is the one corresponding to the country where you received your first degree (e.g., Bachelor). Your country of citizenship and your country of residence are not taken into account in our Admissions Procedure.

In order to be eligible for the Master in Management programme, candidates must hold a Bachelor degree (equivalent or higher) after having completed at least three years of university studies (180 ECTS). Applicants may submit an application in the same year they obtain their Bachelor degree. We recommend candidates not to be older than 30 during the application year.

Students without a Bachelor degree but having previously completed at least two years of university education (120 ECTS) can apply for the Pre-Master year which will prepare students for the Master in Management programme.

Pre-Master students automatically join the Master in Management programme without having to go through any further admission procedures. We recommend candidates not to be older than 26 during the application year.
