What do you think of ESCP Europe?

Hi,
I wanted to ask what you think of ESCP Europe and the Bachelor in Management?
This takes place in 3 different countries. (New country every 2 semesters)
Do you think this is a solid opportunity to find a place at TOP IB / UB?
I don't want to commit to IB or UB in my Bachelor's degree yet.

Certainly a good program, but also not inconsiderable costs (tuition fees + cost of living Paris / London etc.)

Have a lot of friends who did their Masters there. The communication between the individual locations is said to be the catastrophe. Excellent placement in France. In Germany not a bit better than Cologne, Mannheim, WHU and the usual consorts.

Headquarter in Paris with good facilities and soso secondary campuses in Europe. Was on the open day and saw the performance, met some students and applicants. ESCP uses a relatively large number of young inexperienced lecturers. Changing campuses is a logistical challenge and it is difficult to find lasting friendships. Organizational coordination is weak. Unfortunately I wasn't that impressed, more style than substance and the cost is very high. ESCP is a conundrum. Given the high costs, I can try the LSE, HEC, Bocc, WHU right away with good grades. Most of the ESCP applicants I spoke to applied there as well. Or at SSE, Mannheim, HSG if costs are a factor. Both alternatives are better than the ESCP in my opinion.

In terms of reputation, I also think the ESCP is very good. In any case, I only have the impression of the Berlin campus, everything seems a bit chaotic, I didn't find any really well-known professors / lecturers. Especially when it comes to organization, so many universities could score points, at least for me as a student ...

The EBS of Europe.

A contact point for rich kids who want to live in a different fancy city every year in addition to their weekend trips. And all of this without lifting a finger for good grades.

Placement primarily through contacts with parents.

So: do you have rich parents and little desire to work? But Ö-Wi is too village for you and not fancy enough for your Insta feed? Then is it a perfect point of contact?

reply

What do you think of ESCP Europe?

Do young people really say "fancy" all the time?

In any case, the theory of the ESCP is in France and therefore well respected there, in D it probably has a similar good standing as the first-class state universities in the field of business administration, not above.

You have to differentiate here. The ESCP's Grande Ecole program is # 3 in France and thus opens all doors. But you can only get in "classically" via prepaid (i.e. only if you are at a native speaker level in French and torment yourself through hell for 2 years), or after a bachelor's degree as a lateral entrant to the "master's in management".

The Bachelor is something completely different and is a cash cow. Bachelor’s degrees are also relatively new in France and therefore much less viewed than the Prestige-Grande Ecole courses.

Of course, it still remains an interesting program if you have the necessary change. The people here in the forum always try to look down on the wealthy students - envious. If you can afford the program with 3 metropolises in 3 years, I imagine the whole thing to be really very, very cool. So why not? Treat yourself.
In terms of placement, however, the bachelor's degree is likely to be weaker than Mannheim / Goethe / Cologne and everything that is "target" in Germany.

ESCP in France is still really solid. But for a career start in France at least B2, better C1 language skills are compulsory!
In Germany, the ESCP is no better than Münster, Cologne, LMU, WHU, etc.

Can I confirm, especially the Master is pay to win - there are the WHUers who have managed to achieve a bad 2-point average and not reach 600 in the gmat

Wrong sign, it should be <600

You don't need a GMAT for the ESCP. The "in-house" test is sufficient. Very few I know actually applied with a GMAT at the ESCP.

I am currently a student at ESCP Europe which is now listed under "ESCP Business School"!

Was previously at a very good university in Germany. I was aware that if you are looking for an academic challenge, you have no business at the ESCP. But now I am very disappointed with the general level of motivation among the students and with the facilities at the university. The fact that the library only opens on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. and is completely closed on Sundays is very disappointing for a university that charges such high tuition fees!

The ESCP is a university with a relatively good name. It is definitely worth doing your degree here, especially if you plan to work in France. Of course, you have to master the French language for this.

If you are looking for fellow students from whom you can learn and with whom you can exchange ideas intensively, then you have come to the wrong address.

It is always said that "private universities offer you a" network "that alone is worth paying so much money for". So far I have the impression that this network does not exist! Maybe there is for the French (those who have made the "prepa" here in France and therefore see themselves above everyone else), but as an international I have the impression that there is no network.

There is also no real solidarity among the students here. This may also be due to the constant change of campus during your studies.

The ESCP sees itself as an international business school of the first division, in my opinion it is not (yet) that!

What was level of test? Was it too difficult?

reply

What do you think of ESCP Europe?

It's just something for rich kids with bad bachelor's degrees & no GMAT who don't care about tuition fees & living costs because they are surpassed by restaurant and club bills in Paris & London anyway.

The wrong thing for academic standards, but whoever wants to do something for the Insta Feed and doesn't want to be looked at crookedly for the Moncler jacket will definitely judge

ESCP is the NOVA for wealthy students.

reply

What do you think of ESCP Europe?

In the master’s degree, really difficult audience. Many of those who did their Bachelor in Oestrich / at the FS were not down-to-earth (simply not enough expensive clocks in the lecture) and who wanted to show off again shamelessly. There's not much to learn - but it doesn't bother anyone either

I was once at an ESCP house party in Madrid, God it was a decadent shame ... had the impression that the bottom bucket from FS, WHU & EBS gathers here, who wants to do a master's at a "top business school", but has neither a GMAT nor good grades

A tough but fair assessment. A lot of Eurotrash romp around at the ESCP and there is often boasting.

reply

The placement is very good in Europe. Significantly better than Nova, CBS and Maastricht.

reply

What do you think of ESCP Europe?

In this case, the placement is difficult to evaluate. It is clear that the children from a good home who study there do not have to do one or the other internship (with or without contacts).

Hi guys,

Can someone say empirical values ​​about the "Master in strategy and digital business" with regard to placement / reputation in UB and industry?

The references (Bain and Henkel as cooperation partners, consulting case study and rankings) look very convincing.

But 25k € + maintenance in Berlin and Paris are of course also an announcement ...

I have MiM offers from HEC and ESCP, tend more towards ESCP. Are there any insights into academic aspirations? Chances for MBB and IB should be the same so far ...

Hello everybody,
did my bachelor's degree at the ESCP (class of 2020). Of course, it always depends on what you do with your studies and how much you try, but after my bachelor's degree I am now full-time at MBB and have a few fellow students who have found jobs in the IB at GS or JPM. In general, however, I would say that the ESCP is stronger in the industrial area with regard to placement (at least in Germany) - in France but also in London all doors are open with the name, if the grades are correct.

reply

What do you think of ESCP Europe?

I can only agree with the previous speaker.
I am currently studying at the ESCP in a bachelor's degree in management. My economics professor is also an INSEAD faculty member, so I wouldn't generalize that with the young and inexperienced lecturers. In any case, the ESCP has many shortcomings, but it also offers a good brand (only for "Grand Ecole") - but the recruiters do not pay too much attention to this.

The full-time MBA at the Business School ESCP Europe will be switched to more internationality from September 2017. In addition to relevant business soft skills, the focus is on practical intercultural exchange. Stays abroad in England, Italy, France, China, Spain, Poland and India round off the MBA in International Management.

As part of the three-year program “International Business Administration”, ESCP Europe Berlin is now also offering Turin as a study location, thus enabling a triple degree in Italy, France and Germany.

Private universities are known for their innovative spirit in the German university system. As non-governmental universities, private universities rely on a strong practical focus and an international orientation. In close cooperation with partnerships from business and industry, it is easier for students to start their careers while they are still studying. This increases the attractiveness index of private universities for prospective students, especially for business administration, economics and other management subjects. More than 60 percent of private universities currently offer courses in economics.

The HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management successfully re-accredited the AACSB in 2019. The accreditation by the American "Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business" is one of the most prestigious seals of approval for business schools worldwide.

The Association of MBAs has accredited the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. Together with the AACSB and EQUIS accreditations, the Frankfurt School receives the third accreditation with AMBA. The Frankfurt School is thus included in the group of so-called “Triple Crown” accredited business schools. In Germany, the Frankfurt School is only the fourth "Triple Crown" accredited business university, alongside the ESMT in Berlin, the TUM School of Management in Munich and the Mannheim Business School.

Private universities are booming, and more and more students are choosing them. How is this success explained? Are the private universities a role model and future model for the German university landscape? The German Student Union (DSW) gets to the bottom of these questions in the new edition of its DSW journal.

The European Business School (EBS) University of Economics and Law changes hands: The new owner is SRH Holding (SdbR). It was agreed not to disclose the price at which EBS was taken over. Rumors are circulating that the SRH Group has invested 18 million euros.

Studying at a private university is more in demand than ever: the number of students has doubled in ten years. In Germany, this is almost every twelfth first-year student who decides to study at a private university. From a financial point of view, it is primarily the public universities that are winning, as they benefit from the increasing number of students at private universities through the University Pact. These are the results of a current study by the Cologne Institute for Economic Research (IW).

The publication “Secrets of the success of private universities” provides an overview of the development, types and concepts of private universities and the composition of their student body. A CHE study shows that the five success factors of leading private universities are market orientation, practical orientation, goal orientation, student orientation and needs orientation.

The HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management is again the most popular among business students. In the "Business Edition" of the trendence Graduate Barometer, the 14,850 students surveyed at business and economics faculties voted HHL first in eight out of ten categories.

The Science Council in Cologne has approved the accreditation of the International School of Management (ISM) for a further five years. This means that the private university with locations in Dortmund, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt / Main and Cologne is officially recognized until 2020. In its report, the Science Council emphasizes the high quality teaching, the practical training and the international network of the ISM.

The Association of Private Universities (VPH) represents the interests of private universities in Germany. It was founded in 2004 and advocates a pluralistic university system for the benefit of students and society. It represents the only interest group for private universities in Germany.

Prof. Dr. Timo Meynhardt will be the owner of the new Dr. Arend Oetker Chair of Business Psychology and Leadership at the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management. The qualified psychologist studied in Jena, Oxford and Beijing. He did his doctorate and habilitation at the University of St. Gallen in business administration and spent eight years at the management consultancy McKinsey.

In the 2012/2013 winter semester, 137,800 students were enrolled at private universities. The number has increased by 10 percent compared to the previous year.With 86,400 students, law, social sciences and economics reached 63 percent of the students at private universities.

The number of educational institutions in Germany fell from around 99,600 in 1998 to around 95,400 in 2010. In contrast, the number of independent educational institutions has increased by a quarter from 32,000 to 40,000.
