The MBA in International Management keeps the MEB’s unique DNA, as a full time intensive general management programme with a strong cross-cultural approach. It provides an excellent connection to the world of business and a solid foundation for an international career along with a tremendously enriching personal development experience. ESCP Europe definitely helps students to grow as entrepreneurs and as individuals. Present on each of the 6 campuses, The Careers Service provides the advice, data and tools to identify  professional objectives and connect with companies. 

"We cultivate a strong cross-cultural approach embedded in multicultural teamwork. Combining cultural, social, and emotional intelligence with business acumen are essential features of successful leaders." says Frank Bournois, Dean of ESCP Europe.

The MBA in International Management is designed for young professionals of nationality, diverse academic and professional backgrounds (Engineering, Law, Literature, Science, Political Science) who wish to boost or reorient their international career.

Andreas Kaplan, Dean for Academic Affairs adds "We keep the unique character of this programme: one year, two countries, two corporate projects and a strong multicultural diversity amongst our students’ profiles. We want to attract very qualified and diversified profiles, from various cultures and origins."
