Founded

1907

Description

The Ecole Superieure des Sciences at Commerciales (ESSEC) which was founded in 1907 as the Economic Institute. With with HEC and ESCP it is one of the three Paris-based Grandes Ecoles – France’s highly selective and prestigious sector of technical institutions - specialising in business education which are known as the "Trois Parisiennes".

Students are admitted via the concours entrance exam, which has an acceptance rate of 6-7 per cent.

Founded as a Catholic response to HEC’s secularism, it was run by a priest, Father Camille Donjon, from 1939 to 1960. In recent times it has lived up to its motto of "L’Esprit Pioneer", taking the initial step towards Triple Crown accreditation when it became the first school outside North America accredited by the AACSB in 1997, two years before it rebranded its Grand Ecole programme as MBAs.

Its Paris operations today are divided between an executive campus in the city at La Defense and the business school in the suburbs at Cergy-Pontoise.

Its continuing importance within the French system was signalled in 2017 when Jean-Michel Blanquier, director-general since 2013, was appointed national Minister of Education following the election of President Macron. Blanquier’s period in office had seen an emphasis on internationalisation, with the creation of new campuses in Singapore – where it has offered courses since 2006 - in 2015 and the Rabat-Sale-Kenitra region of Morocco in 2017.

Other developments include an MBA offered in partnership with Mannheim Business School, an English-language Executive MBA and a Global MBA in luxury brand management and hospitality.

I am an ESSEC student since 3 years and I think that the BBA program is very good for people who want to work in management domains just after high-school. The courses are great and very interesting. I like the fact that you can choose what you study. ESSEC business school has one campus in Rabat and one in Singapore which makes it a very international university.

I disliked the experience of this school, it's located in Cergy which is 30-40 mins away from Paris by the RER. Cergy has absolutely nothing to do, there is a big mall and a lake but that's about it. It also gets really dangerous at night. The accommodation is pretty expensive for what it is. The first year, I stayed at the university dorm nearest to my school, and the building itself was really old. Some of the professors are good teachers but it's like some professors assume that all the students know the topic. Technically I had to teach myself a lot during the year and most of the year as well. It's extremely expensive because it is also a private school, but there aren't many international students as well. The students are mostly french, and if you don't know french then you'll have to figure everything out by yourself. I really regret coming here, I expected the education to be better and more organized, expected way more international students and the services provided by the university was not worth it.

I think the best thing about Essec is that it's not focusing on academics rather it emphasizes on future job mindset and professional experiences.. The classes are interesting and we have plenty of workshops attributing to different sectors.. The campus is very nice with a good cafe and wonderful library. The only problem is the location of the campus. It's quite far from Paris.

ESSEC is a very international university which welcomes from all over the world, with its 3 campuses it is present globally. The things which I would highlight is the quality of the lessons and professors. Courses are taught by professionals or teachers experts in their fields. What I have enjoyed the most are the opportunities offered by the school: there are plenty of conferences, workshops, classes where students can meet professionals and apply for internships/ jobs.

The program I did gave me the opportunity to start in Singapore. I got the chance to know all the students that started there and we bonded and made some friends for life. The career opportunities that ESSEC also gave me were unbelievable.
