So, you’ve decided to get an MBA, congrats! Don’t pop the champagne just yet though. Deciding to pursue an MBA is just the beginning; the next step is deciding which business school and MBA program to apply for.
Which MBA you choose to pursue will depend on why you want to do an MBA in the first place. Maybe you’re looking to advance in your chosen field, or perhaps you’re planning to switch careers altogether. You might be interested in studying abroad, or you may prefer to stay in your home country. Whatever your particular reasons, the best MBA programs today include a strong international component designed to give candidates the skills they need to succeed in the global business arena.
Why get your MBA at ESSEC? Here are a few reasons why the ESSEC Global MBA is a top choice for ambitious professionals today.
1) A focus on international business skills.
Succeeding in the business world today—no matter your industry or specialisation—requires international know-how. Why get your MBA at all if you aren’t going to use it to expand your global network and sharpen your cross-cultural business skills? The ESSEC Global MBA has a truly international foundation, with a curriculum aimed at teaching candidates to think outside the box in a stimulating, multi-cultural context. Two campuses in France and Singapore, international field trips, and a diverse student body bolster the program’s international focus.

The ESSEC Global MBA student body is made up of 90% international students. This means that candidates are given the opportunity to forge a truly global network of connections through the program. What’s more, working alongside fellow candidates from different walks of life offers ESSEC students invaluable insights into overcoming the unique challenges of doing business across geographical and cultural barriers.
