Brief description

Founded in 1909 in Angers, France, ESSCA is a grande école specializing in business offering a post-graduate diploma in management accessible immediately after the baccalauréat or secondary school.
A member of the prestigious Conférence des Grandes Ecoles, its five-year diploma has been accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education as a master’s degree. Four areas of specialization are offered in the fourth year: marketing, management, finance both in classic and work-study structures.
Located at six different sites in France (Angers, Aix-en-Provence, Bordeaux, Cholet Lyon and Paris) as well as in Budapest and Shanghai, ESSCA’s international curriculum can boast of an international partner network of over 280 institutions in more than 55 countries. ESSCA is proud to hold triple-accreditation by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS and to be the first post-secondary French school to have received the European EPAS accreditation for the excellence of its programs, its international scope and its strong links to the corporate world.
Besides the 1st year competitive entrance examination, ESSCA offers candidates the possibility of joining the master’s program directly for those students already having an undergraduate degree.
The 5-year accredited master’s diploma is also attainable via adult continuing education. What’s more, the School has developed a number of programs and training sessions engineered by directors, managers and operational teams.
ESSCA nurtures humanistic values which place the student at the heart of his/her pedagogical project thus fostering his/her personal and holistic fulfillment and striving.
