Tuition Fees & Scholarships

Plan your finances

An MBA is a big investment in time and money. Therefore it’s important to make sure that you have all the financial support you need before you start the MBA of your choice. At ESSEC Business School, we offer a range of scholarships options to make paying for your program as easy as possible.

Tuition and application fees

Application fee for the Global MBA for the 2017-2018 academic year is 130€ for all Majors.

Tuition for the ESSEC Global MBA depends on the campus choice. For programs on the ESSEC France Campus, tuition is fixed at €45,000 for 2017-2018. For programs on the ESSEC Asia-Pacific Campus, tuition is fixed at SGD73,700 (GST included), for 2017-2018. Major choice at either campus does not influence the tuition fee.

For both campuses, the tuition fee covers all academic courses, seminars, and one study trip. Items not included in the tuition fees are:

  • Textbooks and course materials;
  • Living expenses;
  • Compulsory health and liability insurance as required by law (certificate to be provided upon arrival);
  • Students specializing in International Luxury Brand Management will do three additional compulsory field trips: to Italy to study the luxury fashion business model, to Dubai to understand luxury brand management in emerging markets, and to Switzerland to appreciate the watches business model. The additional mandatory fee for these field trips, over and above the tuition fees, is €2,500.
