ESCP Europe - 50 % scholarship - worth it ?

Post Wed Dec 21, 2011 10:45 am
Hi ,
I hope you can help me with a crucial decision regarding MIM.

I have recently recieved a 50 % merit award from escp europe for their masters in management program.
Since the beginning i was highly inclined towards the french schools which feature in the top slots in the rankings, however recently i have had doubts about taking up a min. 3 year option for a masters.
I know about escp's brand name. the only hitch is -

1) How much do you think the language will play a role in career search ( French ) ?

2) In the long run, do you think it is really worth spending 3 years ( 2 yeards academic + 1 year compulsory internship ) on a Masters degree and NOT an MBA ?

3) Does anyone have any concrete information about the school's career services, placements- sector wise. avg salary quoted in the web site is decent, but anyone with anything more ?

3) any other top 1 year programs u suggest , apart from LBS/LSE ?

I mean I will be 25- 26 when I start to earn full time.

thanks for your help

1. a LOT. This is France. You can get a job with imperfect French, but you won't get one without good French.

2. You probably know as much as us.

3. In Europe - Oxford, INSEAD, HEC, IESE, IE, Cambridge In US - Kellogg and Johnson
