How French is your programme? Would it prepare me to learn the French culture of business so that I can enter into the multinational companies based in Paris to a managerial position? 09:54 Is this an MBA with a specific specialization or a general one? 13:23 Hello! how come I don't see you in the global ranking of the MBA in Financial Times? Where are you? 15:46 I would like to address the question to the student Purnima who is currently a student of this program. How has your journey to Essec been? What have been your unique experiences as a student of this program? 20:08 Expert question 20:19 Expert question: We can maybe say that an MBA is one of the most expensive pieces of paper; not only the diploma itself but also the opportunity cost of the 12 months pausing the professional life! Tell us: is this a cost-effective investment for those who are already earning a satisfactory salary? 26:24 Hi! Actually, I am from Singapore. One term in Singapore is not that attractive for me. Do you offer any other options for cases like me? 29:23 Do I need economics or business background to follow the courses? What are the preferred bachelor's degree or current professional sector by the admission's office? 34:14 What is the kind of placement support you offer to your students? Placement is an Indian concept where companies visit the campus and recruit them right at the campus. Does that happen at Essec? 37:06 Could you tell us more about the Capstone project during the summer and is it compulsory? What if I am not interested in consulting firms? 41:31 Tricky question 41:38 Tricky question: There are two choices on the table: (A) a bag of recently roasted coffee beans, and (B) a wine bottle just out of a winery. They are both of a supreme quality. Which one resembles your global MBA? 45:35 Hello, I have worked in a big corporation in Seoul for the last 16 years. I really want something new and want to expand my career outside Korea. Do you think your MBA will be useful for me? 47:34 Hello Purnima! Is it difficult to find a job post MBA in Europe? As most of the European countries have strict visa policies for international students. 49:31 What is the ambience like during the courses? Is it interactive? How many students in class? 55:01 I find that the Essec global MBA course does not have a comprehensive list of courses in Marketing for example. If I am looking at a deep knowledge in a particular functional area, would an Essec MBA be suitable for me? 57:59 Hi! I am from Malaysia and I am confused if this programme is for students from developed countries trying to enter into the emerging markets like in my home country. 60:18 Conclusion
