Commitment to Global Experience and Career Success

ESCP’s Master in Finance has been well-recognised for its strong career performance, in part due to its innovative teaching methods and focus on soft skills to prepare students for their professional journeys post-graduation.

“Beyond the foundations of finance, the programme is designed to help students define their career goals and develop key interpersonal skills.

We believe this approach has strongly contributed to 100% of graduates being employed in less than three months following graduation from the programme,” adds Prof. Philippe Thomas. “Soft skills have been a part of the programme for more than 10 years and continue to be improved every year as we see them as an essential element to our graduates' future success.”
