ESSEC MiM Review


SALIENT FEATURES

ESSEC is a very popular school in France & forms the top tier of the Grande Ecole system along with HEC and ESCP. It is known to accept only the very best of students and hence the admission process is extremely competitive.

ESSEC is also one of the few European schools that are actively branching out into Asia, it found it's campus in Singapore as early as 2005. The MiM at ESSEC is a great way to fuse learnings of both the east and the west. Students can opt for one year at the French campus and the other year at the Singapore campus.

Some excellent factors which work in favor of ESSEC are:

  • ESSEC is known for its excellent exchange and double degree partnerships, this makes it an attractive choice for people aiming to add value to their profile via such experiences.
  • ESSEC has by far the strongest apprentisage or apprenticeship program placements, where students work for 3 days at a company and study for 2 days at the school. In return, the company pays the entire tuition fees and also gives a healthy stipend to the student. This is an extremely economical way to finance your studies.
  • You can benefit from the networking opportunities arising via interactions with various other masters and bachelor programs on campus. ESSEC also is known for its strong connections in the Luxury management market and offers a specialized MBA based just on that.
  • A number of chairs where students get a chance to interact with big companies and dig deeper/specialize in a subject of their interest. For example Luxury with LVMH, Therapeutic Innovation, Leadership & Diversity, International Sports Marketing, Accenture Business Analytics etc.
  • Great internship and placement opportunities with a large number of companies visiting the on-campus forums.
  • A beautiful stand alone campus near Paris, you can benefit from both living on a dedicated campus and having the hustle bustle of one of the biggest cities in the world just 30 mins away.
  • ESSEC also has a very informative youtube channel and MiM representatives in every country, via whom you can gain a lot of info.

ESSEC MIM REVIEW - APPLICATION ESSAY INSIGHTS 

ESSEC has a very prestigious & well ranked MiM program, and is on the lookout for talented candidates who exhibit the following skills:

 INTERNATIONAL MIND-SET      LEADERSHIP ORIENTED          CREATIVE           

     OPEN MINDED               AMBITIOUS                 MOTIVATED 

Be sure to mention in your application essays how you exhibit these skills, and back them up with relevant examples.

The ESSEC application essays are relatively straight forward and surprisingly simple worded.

ESSEC asks for 1 statement of purpose, and 2 long essays. There are also separate sections in the online application where you fill additional information about your extracurricular activities, professional & international experience.

So you have to be careful you don’t end up repeating the same things you write here, in your essays.

The Statement of Purpose is a Free format letter which is employed by ESSEC to give you a portal to

  1. Introduce yourself in a brief paragraph. 
  2. Talk about Why ESSEC, Why the MIM program & How it can help you to achieve your career goals.

We would advise sticking to a formal tone for the SOP and letting your creativity unleash in the other essays.

Apart from the SOP, the other 2 required essay questions are:

  • What matters most to you, and why?
    Tell us the values and experiences that have shaped the person you are (maximum 400 words)
  • Provide to the Admission Committee any relevant additional information (not already detailed in the rest of your application)(maximum 300 words) 

As you can see both the questions are pretty open ended and can be written in a number of ways and tones.

The second especially essay proves to be a challenge, as most of the information regarding your profile has already been covered by the other essays and short questions. Hence it is a good idea to mention a particular experience which you feel would add value to your profile or talk about some weakness that you think needs addressing.

You can check out ESSEC Sample Essays for deeper insights on how to write the specific

As with all schools ESSEC gives a lot of emphasis to its essays so it is a good idea to spend a lot of time perfecting them, & making sure all your strengths and unique skills are properly highlighted.

Nothing but the best!

It was a great experience working with MiM-Essay team, they helped me crack into LBS my first priority, I did not even need to think of my second-priority or whatsoever. If MiM-Essay team diagnosed you, and then, ensured that you have a high level of possibility of achieving your aims, they definitely can help you prepare for the applications perfectly.

Couldn't have asked for more!

I can say that investing in an essay-editing service is one of the best investments I have ever made. I came to MiM-Essay with big dreams and not-so-good numbers. Abhyank worked with me to bring out everything positive that I had done to tell my story, to show my assets and make them shine brighter than my numbers. Getting into ESSEC would have been difficult without that help.

Highly Recommended

The MiM-Essay team can significantly improve your essays and increase your chances of getting into your target programs. For people with a non-business background, the MiM-Essay team is good at highlighting the relevant information within your experiences, and making the stories resonate with audiences. An admit from HEC just proves the worth of their services 🙂

Just Amazing!

Taking the essay and interview pack was one of the best decisions I made during the journey, not only is their profound knowledge about business schools very helpful but also their constant support will keep you motivated. I am very happy with the service they propose. I truly believe it gave me a strong competitive advantage and helped me present a polished image of myself in front of the LBS panel, ultimately getting me an admit.

Just go for it!

I would say, do not think twice about it and GO for it. It is a worthwhile investment and will go a long way in helping you secure a place at your dream college. I not only got into my target colleges- HEC & ESSEC, but even won a 20,000 euro scholarship!

Never thought would get both my target schools!

They know what they do and they are 100% effective. I wanted to get into LSE and Duke, & with their assistance in all the phase of the admission process, we succeeded! To everyone who is wondering if these services are useful, I can firmly say that I probably couldn’t have succeeded without them.

A Merit & an Eiffel Scholarship! Hell Yeah!

I wouldn't think twice if I had to go back in time to choose MiM-Essay again. They provide the best one can offer for the best price. And since they are specialised for this MiM counseling, one shouldn't think of any other service apart from theirs when it comes to applying for MiM courses. The 2 scholarships & admits from ESSEC & ESCP, just prove this point.

Love their approach

Thanks to their continued mentoring I was finally able to convert my RSM Application. The experience has been absolutely amazing & extremely streamlined. Their step by step process of asking me everything about my previous experiences starting from my childhood to my current state is quite an unprecedented practice that I have not seen any other admission counselor do. And the way they structure all of those experiences into a cohesive & the detailed prose is very remarkable. Overall, I'm completely impressed with MIM Essay & would highly recommend it to anyone who needs help for preparing his master's application.
