No introductions needed, the MBA is the holy grail of business education. 

So maybe you want to change industry, take on new managerial responsibilities. Or maybe you want to boost your salary. Maybe it’s all of these things combined! Either way, the MBA is the launch pad for a fulfilling and financially rewarding career.  

But as in all things, timing is key. How do you know when it’s the right time to get the MBA under your belt?

Should I join the MBA now or later?

If you have been working for three to eight years, this might just be the right time for you. You have met the short deadlines and put in the long hours. You have honed your skills in a specific role or industry. So what is the next step? Now you want to take some time for yourself. You want to decide on the next major steps in your career and develop the skills you need to get there.

Whether looking to change sector, company or role, students have one thing in common: they are committed to bringing their career to an international level. And the MBA is there to help them achieve just that!

Why an MBA in international management with ESCP? 

From the technological revolution to the climate crisis, we are living through challenging times. The global challenges we face demand a coordinated response from business. And international managers can lead this fight. Skilled and responsible managers who excel in multicultural teams will be at the forefront of a new business for a new world. The MBA in international management at ESCP is designed to equip students with the very skills and experience needed to become those leading international managers.

Our curriculum provides comprehensive core courses, seminars, international elective courses, company consultancy projects and a variety of career development workshops. It all takes place across two of European campuses, immersing students in European multiculturalism in all its aspects.

The MBA is the moment to take stock of your professional objectives. From the very start, our induction seminar will give you the tools you need to make the right decisions for you and your future. Throughout, you will discover new business disciplines and topics supported by case studies. You will boost your multicultural leadership skills by working with your international colleagues on two separate company consultancy projects and case studies. 

And the cherry on top? Our alumni network of over 60,000 spread across over 150 countries and our career centre will be at hand to guide you towards your next professional challenge.
