During the ESSEC Digital Week competition you will work in mixed teams on a consulting project for real companies concerning a “digital challenge”, and present a professional proposal at the end of the week in front of a panel of company representatives.
International Field Trip
International field trips will enable you to understand contemporary business challenges in different socio-economic and cultural contexts. During the second term, you will embark on a week-long field trip, the location of which changes year to year. This field trip is a mix of cultural and professional activities to help you explore how business is conducted in a different part of the world. During this trip you will complete an industry-focused research project, visit companies, and meet local ESSEC alumni. Past trips have been made to China, South Africa, Russia, Hong Kong, Dubai, Italy, Morocco...
Consulting Field Project
This final project is specifically designed to give you hands-on experience working with a team on a real-life business problem, enabling you to apply and demonstrate your newly acquired skills and knowledge. Depending on your major, the project could take the form of a say a case competition, or consulting mission, on important and strategic topics defined in collaboration with sponsoring companies. It is centered on a three to four week-long, faculty-supervisor led immersion, culminating in a final written report and presentation, completed during the capstone seminar.
Participants have the option of pursuing an internship at the end of the program. The internship provides an excellent stepping stone and testing arena for all your newly acquired skills. It also provides strong practical examples of business life in reality. It is particularly interesting for students who are changing countries. The internship will take between 3 and 6 months. In the past years students chose highly diverse firms across industries and continents. You select your firm but you have the large and developed network of ESSEC at your disposal to help you land the job.
