Dear Folks

I am a shortlist to the Advanced Master SMIB program at ESSEC, France starting 2013 and would be taking the final interview shortly. Please advice on the reputaion of this study and the career oppurtunities available for a international student outside Europe and preferably in Asia.

Thanks Much

I know a couple of people who went there, including close friend who dropped off after a couple of weeks.
It seems that it's worth it only if what you want is the right to write ESSEC on your resume / want to switch to business career.
Otherwise it seems that classes are weak, students don't care (only French people) and there is a bad atmosphere (Grande Ecole ESSEC students look down on MS students, don't expect to leverage the network). That was 2 yrs ago, maybe things have changed...
As for working in Asia, you'll just get the benefit of being in Singapore, the school won't support you more than that.
It's not that bad, it all depends on what other options you have.

I have got admitted to the Asia track SMIB 2013. I would like to know about the Class Profile of this course as you make it look like its all french people. I would like to know abt the career prospects and the career network in detail. Could you ask your ex-Essec friend for his advise as I am a 24year old wanting to make an entry to a Food and beverage manufacturing firm or work as a strategy consultant at a consultancy. Thanks
