ESLSCA Business School

Established in 1949, ESLSCA has trained more than 15,000 students who now hold leading positions both in France and abroad. They have gained much in attending ESLSCA:




  • A broad and high-level master's degree: Admission after HEC (Business School) preparatory classes or after 2 or 3-year undergraduate degrees, based on a rigorous and innovative curriculum, the aim of which is to train genuine “Entrepreneurial managers”.



  • Courses leading to genuine qualifications and professionalization, which are highly sought-after by companies, with ESLSCA's “Finance” major and its very high reputation (ESLSCA has the largest number of former students who are now accountants in the financial, banking and stock markets).



  • International: Created in 1979, the dual MBA degree is the oldest among the ESC network (Superior French Business Schools). The curriculum includes a compulsory term to be spent abroad (internship or academic semester), along with several courses taught in English. More than 50 nationalities are currently represented among the students of ESLSCA Business School, a member of AACSB, EFMD, CREPUQ and EDUNIVERSAL.



  • Existing synergies with other ESLSCA Group programs: Bachelor and MBA programs in English, and 19 third cycle programs, many of which are references in their niche (International Trading, Financial Engineering, Luxury and Fashion Management, Economic intelligence).



  • Corporate recognition, with companies supporting the ESLSCA Business School educational project, delegate teachers, provide numerous internships and receive graduates in the best conditions (the results of the survey on young graduate salaries by EXPANSION magazine (April 2010) still favour Paris ESLSCA Business School this year, ranking it 28th out of 40 schools.)



  • Significant research: ESLSCA Business School is actively involved in the research effort undertaken at European level to enhance management education. Teachers, PhD students and holders, management professors who are qualified to conduct research (HDR) all contribute to the publication of research papers, participate in colloquiums, publish articles and books in their respective disciplines, notably in Economic Intelligence and Finance.


The results of the IPSOS survey commissioned by ESLSCA Business School demonstrate the relevance of its educational project when it comes to meeting company expectations: the importance of internships and work experience, the level of professionalization of the curriculum, proficiency in English (bilingualism) and computer software.
