17 17 WHAT DOES THE MASTER BRING INTO MANAGEMENT? Students and alumni report The ESCP MIM pushed me to continuously get out of my comfort zone: studying, working and falling in love in the most exciting European capitals enriched my experiences and multiplied exponentially my opportunities! Sharing this path with people with multifaceted background, allowed me to discover new interests, cultivate new passions and set higher goals. Success is definitely what I always aim at, but what I really owe to the ESCP is providing me with the unconditioned sense of self-accomplishment, arising from the continuous willingness to challenge myself and dare! As a result, I developed a unique mindset that helps me manage at best uncertainty and take decisions: both in professional and personal situations. Isn t it what managers should do be good at? There are universities, there are business schools and then there is ESCP Europe! Pietro Maggio, student in the 2nd year of master's degree, course of studies: Turin-Berlin-Paris Personally, I was looking for an international master’s program that combines academic, practical and cultural experience in different countries and brings together interesting people from all over the world. This is exactly what ESCP Europe offers. Another plus point is the opportunity to study in three of the most exciting metropolises in Europe within two years, to further develop your linguistic and intercultural skills and to receive a recognized diploma for the relevant job market. A top level European educational journey that knows no borders and inspires your career in every respect. Florian Küster, Alumnus, Course of Study: London-Paris-Berlin Even those who see their future in Germany can benefit enormously from a truly European degree in three countries, languages ​​and cultures, because almost everywhere in business today, interdisciplinary work is done. Even within a company in Kassel or Munich, extremely different cultures collide and rub against each other. Anyone who has learned to implement study projects as a diplomatic moderator with French and Italians can also skillfully mediate between engineers and marketing people or between copywriters and sales.
