ESCP Europe Master in Management (MIM) - application process, experiences?

Hello!
does anyone have experience with the MIM program from ESCP Europe and
can tell you something about your studies? Would you recommend it?

So, is it difficult to get into the program?
The application process, which was described on the ESCP website, put me off a little.

Many Thanks :)

Great reputation, it is at the top of almost every ranking, but frankly I've never met anyone from it ... The program structure sounds interesting, with the Europe-wide travel.

Is there anyone here who did a master’s degree? I think it's a consideration, although Berlin probably doesn't appeal to me as much.

I got to know some ESC students (London campus) as part of a Joint Assessment Center event. Most of them came from Italy and during the conversation I realized that you don't need a GMAT for the MiM. I don't want to devalue the program under any circumstances, but in any case a "quality difference" was noticeable in the AC (compared to LBS, Imperial and LSE).

I did my master’s degree, I can only report positive things, both on placement at companies (of course, the profile itself has to be right overall from Bachelor's, internships, etc.) and on the course itself (very heterogeneous peer group due to the different locations and students all countries, which is very pleasant). The content of the course is absolutely comparable to that of other top business schools (can be compared well here thanks to studying abroad). Mainly campuses in Paris and London with top courses held by renowned lecturers (I can say less about Madrid, but also good courses in Berlin, but limited selection due to the size of the campus). In addition to the international nature of the program, the biggest advantage is the students (I have participated in several Joint ACs with students from other top London business schools (LSE, Imperial, LBS etc.) People are no less ambitious, but mostly appear much more relaxed ..

Reputation especially in France absolutely top class, but also internationally (in D maybe not quite on the same level as WHU / LMU / Mannheim, but neither HEC and ESSEC, because often just not so common).

Of course, there are also the typical things that bother students (admin, etc.), but overall to be fully recommended (although generally always a matter of type, some people don't need the internationality or prefer to work extremely academically and therefore may be in favor of a good one State university better off ..)

The full-time MBA at the Business School ESCP Europe will be switched to more internationality from September 2017. In addition to relevant business soft skills, the focus is on practical intercultural exchange. Stays abroad in England, Italy, France, China, Spain, Poland and India round off the MBA in International Management.

As part of the three-year program "International Business Administration", ESCP Europe Berlin is now also offering Turin as a study location, thus enabling a triple degree in Italy, France and Germany.

Private universities are known for their innovative spirit in the German university system. As non-governmental universities, private universities rely on a strong practical relevance and an international orientation. In close cooperation with partnerships from business and industry, it is easier for students to start their careers while they are still studying. This increases the attractiveness index of private universities for prospective students, especially for business administration, economics and other management subjects. More than 60 percent of private universities currently offer courses in economics.

The HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management successfully re-accredited the AACSB in 2019. The accreditation by the American "Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business" is one of the most prestigious seals of approval for business schools worldwide.

The Association of MBAs has accredited the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. Together with the AACSB and EQUIS accreditations, the Frankfurt School receives the third accreditation with AMBA. The Frankfurt School is thus included in the group of so-called “Triple Crown” accredited business schools. In Germany, the Frankfurt School is only the fourth "Triple Crown" accredited business university, alongside the ESMT in Berlin, the TUM School of Management in Munich and the Mannheim Business School.

Private universities are booming, and more and more students are choosing them. How is this success explained? Are the private universities a role model and future model for the German university landscape? The German Student Union (DSW) gets to the bottom of these questions in the new edition of its DSW journal.

The European Business School (EBS) University of Economics and Law changes hands: the new owner is SRH Holding (SdbR). It was agreed not to disclose the price at which EBS was taken over. Rumors are circulating that the SRH Group has invested 18 million euros.

Studying at a private university is more in demand than ever: the number of students has doubled in ten years. In Germany, this is almost every twelfth first-year student who decides to study at a private university. From a financial point of view, it is primarily the public universities that are winning, as they benefit from the increasing number of students at private universities through the University Pact. These are the results of a current study by the Cologne Institute for Economic Research (IW).

The publication “Secrets of the Success of Private Universities” provides an overview of the development, types and concepts of private universities and the composition of their student body. A CHE study shows that the five success factors of leading private universities are market orientation, practical orientation, goal orientation, student orientation and needs orientation.

The HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management is again the most popular among business students. In the "Business Edition" of the trendence Graduate Barometer, the 14,850 students surveyed at business and economics faculties voted HHL first in eight out of ten categories.

The Science Council in Cologne has approved the accreditation of the International School of Management (ISM) for a further five years. This means that the private university with locations in Dortmund, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt / Main and Cologne is officially recognized until 2020. In its report, the Science Council emphasizes the high quality teaching, the practical training and the international network of the ISM.

The Association of Private Universities (VPH) represents the interests of private universities in Germany. It was founded in 2004 and advocates a pluralistic university system for the benefit of students and society. It represents the only interest group for private universities in Germany.

Prof. Dr. Timo Meynhardt will be the owner of the new Dr. Arend Oetker Chair of Business Psychology and Leadership at the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management. The qualified psychologist studied in Jena, Oxford and Beijing. He did his doctorate and habilitation at the University of St. Gallen in business administration and spent eight years with the management consultancy McKinsey.

In the 2012/2013 winter semester, 137,800 students were enrolled at private universities. The number has increased by 10 percent compared to the previous year. With 86,400 students, law, social sciences and economics reached 63 percent of the students at private universities.

The number of educational institutions in Germany fell from around 99,600 in 1998 to around 95,400 in 2010. In contrast, the number of independent educational institutions has increased by a quarter from 32,000 to 40,000.
