  7. 7. MEB-ESCPEurope 13 MEB-ESCPEurope 12 The MEB provides an excellent connection to the world of business, and a solid foundation for an international management career across a wide range of sectors, organisations and positions. At the heart of the programme are both live company consultancy projects and professionnal mission (internship or direct employment) requirements. In their company consultancy projects, multinational teams of students are hired by a client company to provide solutions to some of the real issues they face. During their company internship, students work in a management training role within a client company. ■ Two company consultancy projects: These often involve widespread data collection, fieldwork, research and analysis, and strategic recommendations. They offer groups of students the experience of working together as a mullticulturalteam,underthesupervisionofacompanymanagerandanESCP Europe tutor, to meet the needs of their client. Recent projects have included an analysis of the future of global media brands, research on leveraged financial markets, and an investigation of Internet usage within European companies. Examples of company consultancy projects: (Technicolor) brand. Operators (EY). in Spain and improving P&G brands’ value equation and FMOT (Procter & Gamble). of a tool to predict the impact of change of facilities on service provision (Papworth NHS Hospital). Optimising contract management (Thales). ■ Professionnal mission (internship or direct employment): During the first semester, students are encouraged to begin their search for a minimum three-month internship. These important job-seeking skills are developed withtheprofessionalsupportofSchoolspecialistsintheCareersOfficeand the Alumni Association. Exposure to real-life business culture challenges and strengthens the skills and knowledge acquired in the MEB curriculum, and solidifies the student’s profile as a successful international manager.

  8. 8. MEB-ESCPEurope 15 MEB-ESCPEurope 14 FINANCE This course is designed to provide students with the fundamental theoretical knowledge and tools of finance. The course is organised around one main concept: the value of assets on competitive markets. The first part of the course is devoted to a short study of the firm’s financial statements as a tool for decision making. The rest of the course covers the different applications of the NPV principle. After studying time value of money and interest calculations, NPV will be applied to asset valuations and investment projects selection. The opportunity cost of capital will be introduced as well as the link between risk and return. CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR & NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT This course addresses a fundamental aspect of marketing management, that of consumption, consumers, and buying decisions in Business-to-Consumer contexts. As such, it covers the main stages creating the consumption cycle: need emergence, information seeking and use, decision-making, buying behaviour, consumption experience, post-consumption judgement, and disposal. Participants are asked to acquire not only theoretical wisdom on consumption- related marketing decisions but also sensitivity to consumers’ experience in order to gain better interpretive power across market contexts. This course also addresses innovation from a consumer-centred perspective and starts with a thorough understanding of consumers and their experiences. Participants will closely follow the process of new product development, and thus develop practical skills through case studies and/or projects. MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING & CONTROL Management Accounting deals with the main approaches to cost accounting and cost allocation systems, enabling students to gain a good understanding of budgeting, responsibility accounting, standard costing and variance analysis. Students also acquire the skills needed to assess the managerial and strategic implications of financial decisions. FINANCIAL STRATEGY This course is an ideal complement to the Fundamentals of Finance course in which key concepts in modern financial theory have been covered. To go further into the understanding of the financial strategy of a firm, the course is organised around three main parts. The first is devoted to the analysis of Risk and Return in financial markets, looking closely at the Optimal Portfolio choice, the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) and their application to estimating the Cost of Capital for corporations. The second part addresses how a firm should raise funds in order to finance its investments and the firm’s resulting capital structure, applying especially the Modigliani and Miller Theorem. The final part provides an overview of financial derivatives to manage risk. Academic Content INDUCTION SEMINAR PROBLEM SOLVING AND DECISION MAKING This module gives students the opportunity to enter the “war room” where business strategy is defined.

  9. 9. MEB-ESCPEurope 17 MEB-ESCPEurope 16 TEAMBUILDING SEMINAR At the beginning of the 2nd semester, a teambuilding seminar will take place on each campus, as streams of participants coming from various tracks are coming together. The purpose of this seminar is to rapidly foster connections, helping participants to know each other, leveraging diversity in a culturally and emotionally intelligent way. INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT The International Management course involves considering strategic, organisational and cultural aspects by which decisions of expansion abroad are taken and implemented. This course will particularly explore the specifics of contemporary international business environments wherein firms operate, the founding concepts and dimensions of corporate internationalisation strategy, and a selection of transversal international business issues (human resources issues in an international business context, international management of ethics, and international business negotiation). Upon completion of this course, students will understand how firms operate across borders. OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT & SUPPLY CHAIN Operations Management is concerned with the management of the resources and processes required for ‘delivering’ a product or service. This module is based on the understanding that operations not only concern the industry firm, but also the service firm. Sourcing, logistics, production and Total Quality Management are the key topics covered. ORGANISATIONAL BEHAVIOUR ACROSS CULTURES This module gives students a set of concepts and tools that help them understand 1) organisations as a context for managerial action and 2) behaviour as a result of this context coupled with cognitive and personal factors. It enables them to apply those concepts to motivational and team building issues, especially in an intercultural context. MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS (MIS) In an economy where information is more and more accessible and valued, this course provides the key elements to understanding what an information system is, the roles it can play in a company, and how to maximise it as a management tool as well as a source of new business opportunities. EUROPEAN BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT This module aims at helping students understand the institutional and regulatory framework in the E.U. and how to measure its impact on businesses operating therein. It is based on a series of concrete cases that help students see the links between the E.U. political framework and the emergence of a specific environment for businesses. Questions such as the role and influence of lobbies, the free circulation principle, the issues of standards and harmonisation, innovation and competitiveness are raised, through lectures, cases, interactive discussions and group work. INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS LAW Companies of all sizes, and across all sectors, are doing business in various forms beyond their domestic borders. This course is designed to increase your knowledge ofthelegalframeworkofinternationalbusinesstransactions,publicpolicyandethical issues implicated when doing business in different legal and business cultures. LEADERSHIP & CHANGEMENT MANAGEMENT This module gives students the concepts and tools for diagnosing problems within and improving any leadership situation they could face, especially in a changing context. It also provides them with the basic skills of visioning, trust-building and engagement creation in a managerial context. ETHICS & CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY This module will help grasp the real impact of ethics and CSR beyond the buzzwords. Both ethics and CSR question the current strategies of companies by pushing them to look ahead and imagine concrete ways of integrating these externalities. As such, this course not only provides students with an understanding of what’s behind the words and the operational implications of ethics and CSR integration, but also a critical and innovative look at the ongoing evolution of companies’ positioning within society. ENTREPRENEURSHIP & INNOVATION We will explore entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial process through an integrallensandlearnframeworksandapproachesthatfacilitatebusinesscreation and development, ensuring that your venture is creating value and achieving its purpose with environmental, social, cultural, and economic sustainability. HUMAN RESOURCES FOR MANAGERS This module prepares future managers to understand their responsibilities regarding HR: selection, compensation, performance and career management decisions from a systematic, strategic perspective. FINANCE OR MARKETING ELECTIVE An elective has been created to allow further in-depth study of either marketing or finance, depending on each student’s preference. Students will broaden the knowledge and skills they developed in the marketing and finance modules, and begin to think like the marketers and finance managers they will soon join. Since many MEB graduates enter into these sectors, this elective is an effective way to get a head start on their career. COMPUTER SKILLS This module will provide assistance in using relevant software in a successful and efficient way. Students will be given support in the writing of professional reports, analysing quantitative data using spreadsheets, using PowerPoint slides effectively in oral presentations, and in constructing databases. FUNDAMENTALS OF MATHEMATICS This module helps to revise basic knowledge in mathematics, especially in analysis and linear algebra, for use in business and management applications. Students will be taught the pre-requisites they need for subsequent courses, such as Quantitative Methods, Fundamentals of Finance, Operations Management or Economics for Managers. LANGUAGES During Semester 1: Semester 2 language-of-study courses (English or German) are compulsory for students who have not reached the minimum required level of 12/20 on their language admission tests. Students who will study Semester 2 in English may also take local language courses in order to reach a beginner’s proficiency in Italian, Spanish, German or French.

A Cutting-Edge Faculty and Research A PROGRAMME WITH AN MBA-STYLE CURRICULUM AND A CROSS-CULTURAL APPROACHA PROGRAMME WITH AN MBA-STYLE CURRICULUM AND A CROSS-CULTURAL APPROACH “The ESCP Europe MEB programme perfectly matches the requirements for a modern career in management. Postgraduatesfromvariousdisciplinescancomplementtheir education with profound management know-how, boosting their employability after graduation. By studying in mixed groups at two different campuses, their exposure to cultural diversity allows students to acquire a truly international profile, as well as preparing them for the demands of today’s globalised economy. As a teacher, I most appreciate our students’ motivation for personal progress, their openness and creativity, and their strong team spirit.” Frank Jacob Professor in Marketing Berlin campus “I believe our MEB programme perfectly embodies the very values of ESCP Europe: international environment, European vision, multidisciplinary confrontation, and boundary-less approach to society and markets. To me, MEB students represent the forthcoming generation of individuals and professionals who will contribute to the making of a new, and hopefully better, world. Being a MEB student implies strong motivation, dedication, and sharing of its core values with a group of like-minded participants and professors. Being a MEB graduate makes you a terrific contributor for companies, NGOs, and other organizations that take on the challenges of today’s markets.” Luca M. Visconti Professor in Marketing Paris Campus “The MEB is one of the most valuable experiences a student can have, both personally and professionally. Its teaching methodology provides a balanced combination of a highly demanding training and practical skills, and a structure designed to enhance students’ performance and allow them to experience the high-pressure situations occurringdailyintheworld’sleadingcompanies.Inahighly competitivelabourmarket,tohavetheskillsandcapabilities that the MEB develops is an important competitive edge. Students leave ESCP Europe prepared for a rapid career progression and a keener, more open-minded view of the world of business and new global spaces.” Juan Carlos Higueras Professor in Business Strategy Madrid campus “I appreciate the diversity of our MEB students. Their different cultures and backgrounds mean that they interact with me not only with greater maturity, but also by often posing very challenging and insightful questions. Nothing surprising! The intensive pace of the programme, which enables them to get a rich overview of management issues and tools in a year, makes them eager to grab as much knowledge and skills as they can before entering their professional lives. The organisation of studies, based heavily on teamwork at two different campuses, using foreign languages and adapting to the various personalities and cultural contexts, helps them develop their skills and adaptability at a fast pace. These are qualities much appreciated in the international job market. Importantly, MEB students also fashion their own rich professional network.” Emmanuel Zilberberg Professor in Audit & Accounting Paris campus “Every time I teach MEB students, I learn something new. Their varied backgrounds, cultures and experiences allow discussions to cover many different points of view and deeply explore the content. The mix of competences you can find in class is also of great added value to the programme, fostering dialogue amongst students and enhancing true comparison among them. I consider the MEB programme to be great practise for the global professional world. The workforce of the knowledge society, as Jeremy Rifkin suggests, needs to be equipped with technical competences as well as sophisticated soft skills. Our MEB students leave the programme with significant academic and interpersonal skills that will speed up their ability to deal with multicultural relationships within any international company.” Chiara Succi Professor in Organisational Behaviour Torino campus “I have always enjoyed teaching our MEB students. Even though the subject of corporate finance can make them wary, I am often amazed by the students’ abilities to grasp and apply the concepts, tools and techniques the courses offer them. Combining this with the maturity of the students, as well as their diverse cultural and business backgrounds, the grand result is a recipe that guarantees wonderful class discussions and a superb preparation for their future careers.” Terence Tse Professor in Finance London campus

A G AT E W A Y T O A N I N T E R N AT I O N A L C A R E E R Alumni Insights From Around the World A G AT E W A Y T O A N I N T E R N AT I O N A L C A R E E R “I graduated in Economics at Lund School of Economics in Sweden, and the MEB has been the perfect transition between study and professional life. Thanks to the consultancy projects, the international classmates and team work projects, I have been able to learn and improve in many crucial skills. Undoubtedly, the MEB has been a positive experience to my professional and personal life and provided greater than expected assets.”Martin Strub Hidalgo MEB 2008 Senior Analyst at Google, Netherlands “The MEB gave me the right kind of exposure early in my career. It trains you to excel in a fast moving international corporate environment, and is a balanced choice to pave the way for your future career. Moreover, for me it was a strong learning and definitely a great human experience over one year in London and Bangkok.”Michelle Zhu MEB 2011 APAC Marketing Business Consultant, Sofrecom - Orange FT Group, Thailand “After my degree in Political Science and one year of work experience, I was looking for a programme which would allow me to gain an in-depth knowledge of business in an international environment taught by a ranked international school. During my time as a MEB student, my attitude towards working changed significantly thanks to the hands-on approach of the programme.” Alfonso Auriemma MEB 2012 Business Analyst, Rentokil-Initial, UK “I had already worked for a couple of years when I realised that there was something missing from my experience: a level of managerial awareness. The courses were a good mix of strategy, management and creativity. The MEB programme definitely equipped me with the managerial and business skills I was hoping to acquire.”Sandra Theumann Diaz MEB 2012 Employer Brand Specialist, E.ON Business Services Berlin GmbH, Germany “I actually never thought I had an entrepreneurial mindset before the MEB! ESCP Europe has also been really supportive since the launch of Anaxago in 2012, enabling me to work with them on different projects and upcoming contests. Thanks in part to their support, we raised €3 million in 2013, funding 15 companies. Being backed by ESCP Europe where I only spent a year really meant the world to me!” Caroline Lamaud MEB 2012 Co-founder, Anaxago, France “The MEB is an exciting and unique programme you can find nowhere else. It is notonlytheconcreteknowledgethatIlearned in the classes that have made the programme so special; it also gave me the opportunity to create my own “Tale of Two Cities” - London and Paris - which is definitely a plus and a milestone in my life and work experience at L’Oréal.” Joyce Yuan MEB 2013 International Marketing Development, L’Oréal, France “The MEB allowed me to reach the global career I was aimingforaftermydegreeinengineering.Theopportunityto study management both in Europe and Latin America was a key success factor in securing a position in the Global Graduate Programme at Bombardier Transportation. At the end of this fast-track programme, I got offered a position at their factory in Brazil. At such an early stage of my career, I have worked in Germany, Thailand, Canada and Brazil, all thanks to the tools the MEB gave me!” Florent Lefévère MEB 2009 Operations/Production Planner, Bombardier Transportation, Brazil “My aim was to become an entrepreneur, and I realised that working with more than 30 different nationalities on the MEBwouldhelpmetostandoutamongstalltheotherMBA andbusinessgraduatesaroundtheworld.Aftercompleting the MEB, I worked in Europe for a couple of years. After, I moved back to India and joined Bharti Group. A year later I decided to pursue my original dream and started my own company, Cafe Buddy’s Foods Pvt. Ltd. A fast food retail chain with over 120 operational outlets, we currently have 200 employees working for us.” Sudeep Gupta MEB 2009 Director, Cafe Buddy’s Foods, India “I graduated in Medical Biotechnology. After several years working in the scientific research field in both Italy and the USA, I wanted to change my career path without leaving the international medical environment. With the MEB, I had the opportunity to study in two different cities, in a strong international environment, and to meet high-energy, enthusiastic professionals, both students and professors, who were eager to learn. The MEB programme is very much student-centred,goingaboveandbeyondthetheorytofocus on each candidate’s personal development.” Elisa Migliore MEB 2010 Business Development Analyst, Sanofi Aventis, Thailand
