After completing my Bachelor's degree in Multilingual Communication, it quickly became clear to me that I wanted to complete my Master's degree in an international and business field. In addition to the excellent reputation of the two business schools and the partnerships with first-class companies, I was convinced by the practice-integrated study structure with the goal of integrating the German-French context into the professional profile building. Two countries, three languages, one double degree. As a non-economist, the perfect decision to start your professional life internationally.
I chose the EMS program because I was specifically looking for a business master's program for non-Business graduates that is taught in multiple languages. I can recommend this program to anyone who wants to gain a foothold in international business, because not only are you taught much more than just basic business management skills, but the content is also taught in a very practical way and adapted to current business standards. In addition, ESB has an extensive network of large companies that regularly hold guest lectures and give ESB students access to exclusive internships.
The fact that you have a small group allows you to be "mentored" by the teachers and doesn't make you feel like you are just part of a mass of students, which is very nice and makes learning easier. The diversification of subjects really allows you to get a pretty deep insight into different areas of international trade to find your way. This master's program has the advantage of being offered by two prestigious universities, which makes it much easier to find internships and get into the job market.
