Information For ESCP Europe Students

The three-year MILR/Master in Management will:

  • provide students with an opportunity for an international experience that will advance their career goals and increase their marketability worldwide
  • provide students with a limited knowledge in business and an integrated and functional perspective that will allow participants to gain a broad understanding of the concepts, opportunities, and challenges in international business.
  • provide a practical, hands-on approach to business that will allow students to participate in internship and consultancy opportunities and gain transferable skills for today's global workplace.

Exchange Program

In addition to the three-year MILR/Master in Management sequential degree program, students have the option of participating in an Exchange Program in Paris through the ESCP Europe.

The Exchange Program is a non-degree program with exchanges available for the summer, fall or spring semesters. If participating in the summer exchange, tuition is free for all ILR Graduate Degree students currently participating in the MILR degree program. In addition, there is the possibility of participating in a summer internship while taking courses at ESCP Europe.
