Master in Management

Admission Process (Master Programme): Global Admission Test and SAI

Student at ESCP Europe

Each year 120 places on the master course are offered to candidates joining the school through the Global Admission Test and the SAI admissions.

The two admissions paths are similar in nature.  There are two main differences: the location of the interview and the number of schools receiving your application.  Global Admission Test interviews are carried out by Skype, whereas the SAI Admission interview is done in person in one of many testing centers around the world.  The Global Admission Test are only valid for ESCP Europe whereas the SAI is received by 5 international business schools with campuses in France.

Applicants must hold a Bachelor degree awarded in a non-European country after at least three years of university study, with a maximum of 1 year in Europe. 

Special note for Chinese nationals:  due to a specific visa procedure (related to CampusFrance), candidates from China may only apply through the SAI path.

Candidates may only submit one application per year.  It is also forbidden to apply through more than one admission route (i.e. you cannot apply through both the Global Admission Test and the SAI admission). Candidates found to have done so will have their applications invalidated.

Applicants must hold a Bachelor degree awarded outside France after at least three years of university study, with a maximum of 1 year in France.

Candidates can only submit one application to SAI per year. It is also forbidden to apply through more than one admission route (i.e. you cannot apply through both the Global Admissions Test and SAI admissions). Candidates found to have done so will have their applications invalidated.
