ESCP vs ESSEC&Mannheim EMBA advice


CH User

Hello All,
I’m a corporate finance professional working in the french part of Switzerland with about 15 years of experience. I have decided to start an EMBA this year to open new doors (more senior roles and/or more opportunities in general mgmt). I have initially looked into StGallen EMBA but
the working days they demand are simply not manageable for a working professional, way too many and always from Monday to Friday). I’m now considering two options: ESCP Europe or Essec&Mannheim. The first one very customizable and very flexible, the second one has very good business schools reputation in two countries (France + Germany) and I believe it’s great value for money but it’s not customizable/flexible and it’s lower ranked than ESCP programs which is 7th worldwide in FT.. I would be happy to hear your thoughts! Thanks a lot for your help!

These are really excellent programmes, and you have a good grasp of them. Which has the better alumni network in the firms/regions/sectors you want to develop in? ESSEC has always been strong in luxury and hospitality, so I think it could have a strong network in Romandy. ESCP has a campus in Turin, which could also add value and practicality (especially if you live around Martigny, you could start the EMBA via the GMP in Turin).
