Programme Objectives
Challenge yourself intellectually and acquire skills for a top international career

Learning about Business Management in a Cross-cultural context

During the course of this three-year, three-country programme, you will truly get to know and understand diverse cultures and approaches to management – both through your multi-campus travel and the experience of working with your international peers.
By the conclusion of the Bachelor, you will have acquired the necessary background and knowledge in management, economics, and law, complemented by the fundamentals of maths, accounting and statistics. All modules have been chosen to provide you with a solid foundation for a career in business across a range of different industry sectors and management domains.

Working as a team with people all over the world

You develop presentation, communication and research skills, as well as gaining fluency in several languages.
Group work and collective projects are an integral part of the programme, allowing you to gain insights into working as a team with people all over the world, both face-to-face and digital technology.

Learning about Liberal Arts and Humanities

The inclusion of liberal arts and humanities modules (e.g. Psychology and Sociology) will give you an important understanding of business in a wider context, to think outside the box and develop different ways of thinking.

Bringing concepts to life

We believe that theory is nothing without practice, so internships and social impact projects provide the opportunity for you to bring your learned concepts and techniques to life.
The Bachelor thesis brings the programme to a close, consolidating the past three years of learning and working in a multicultural environment and preparing you for the next steps in their career, be it in postgraduate study or graduate work opportunities.

"I like the fact that all the students come from different countries and thus everyone has various backgrounds and experiences; ESCP Europe is a very international school, which gives the opportunity to hear and learn regarding other cultures, which is also done thanks to the chance to students to study in three different countries. Moreover, I do enjoy the course, especially business thanks to the fact that students can listen in the same semester to various professors, each of them focused and specialised in the topic of their lecture."

"I love ESCP Europe because of its diversity. You can't get this international exposure at any other school. Not only do I get to learn about different people's cultures, I also get to practice my language skills with everyone. Another great thing about the program is that we get to study in three different countries, which will help us stand out in the future. I’m looking forward to living in Madrid and Berlin, and I’m hoping to get prestigious internships during summer breaks."

Languages

Languages form an important part of ESCP Europe's Bachelor programme, with the aim being that all our students speak three languages (including their mother tongue) upon graduation.

To make this possible, we provide in-class and digital language courses that are adapted to each student's level during the three years.

During the first year all courses are taught in English. During the second semester of the second year, some courses in Madrid and Paris will be taught in Spanish and French respectively; all courses offered in Turin are in English. In the third year some of the elective courses will be offered in German, with the option of selecting electives taught in English.

This offers our students the flexibility to study according to their preferences, whilst developing proficiency in other languages.

"The Bachelor at ESCP Europe gives you opportunities to compare different fields of business and see what you like the most. Moreover, due to the small number of students, you can actually learn much more and perform better, also it improves the interaction with professors."

  • First Year:
    Internship – 8 weeks (optional)
  • Second Year:
    Internship or Social Impact Project – 12 weeks
  • Third Year:
    Internship – 12 weeks

Brigitta VILMOS (Hungary) – Bachelor in Management (BSc) - ESCP Europe

Testimonial

Brigitta VILMOS (Hungary)
Track: London – Turin – Berlin

 

"I very much enjoy the multicultural exposure I experience while studying every year at a different campus in a different country together with students from many different nations. Besides studying a broad spectrum of management related courses with many group projects, this international background, together with courses in interpersonal and intercultural skills give us an advantage in today’s competitive job market where employers value the ability of co-operation and teamwork. These skills have proven to be of great value during my consulting internship in the summer as I indeed could profit from what we learned in psychology, communication and interpersonal skills, making collaboration so much easier."

 

Social Impact Project

At the end of the 2nd year, students can opt to apply their theoretical knowledge to a real-life social impact project instead of completing a professional internship.

The option is designed to encourage students to reflect upon pressing social problems, such as poverty and access to basic needs, and focuses on the growing realisation that sustainable social impact can best be achieved by applying creative management solutions.
Students may even take part in social and humanitarian missions abroad, e.g. helping to build schools in under-developed countries or to develop social businesses.

"One of the great aspects of this programme is that we aren’t only facing theoretical courses but many practical ones. According to me, this is key to preparing ourselves for our future business lives."

 

Thesis

The Bachelor thesis is a further opportunity for students to enhance the learning and skills gained from the programme and deepen both knowledge and understanding of their chosen field in management.

Students select a research topic of particular interest for analysis. Recommendations are prepared using clear, logical argumentation and drawing upon original desk research, interviews or a case study carried out during their assignment. Each thesis project is supervised and guided by a member of Faculty or expert in the relevant field. Students are encouraged to pick a topic of personal interest or one highly relevant to their future career plan. The thesis can be written in English, German, French, Italian or Spanish, and is guided by faculty in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris and Turin - again reflecting the international dimension of the programme.

 


Beijing (partner campus)

Logo Tsinghua University, partner of ESCP Europe Bachelor

Students will have the option to start their first year at Tsinghua University and then complete their second and third years on ESCP Europe campuses. Courses taught at Tsinghua will be similar to those taught at ESCP Europe, but slightly adapted to an Asian environment. The classes are taught in English; however a Chinese proficiency equivalent to HSK1 level is required for non-Chinese students.

China is an important player in the global economy, being the world's second largest economic power. Tsinghua University is one of the best universities in the world (ranked 1st in China and 3rd in Asia by QS). As a European school, ESCP Europe has chosen to develop a Chinese/European programme that fits perfectly with its internationalisation strategy and its mission to produce future global leaders
