ESMT has partnered with business schools worldwide to offer you, as a Master student, an enhanced global study experience that fosters the necessary aptitude and knowledge to successfully navigate careers in an international business landscape. 

International exchange

After completing the core Master courses at ESMT in the spring of your first year, you may take your elective courses at a partner institution. 

  • Master in Global Management  students can choose from all MSc exchange destinations.

    For students in the Master in Innovation and Entrepreneurship or Master in Analytics and Artificial Intelligence, available destinations will depend on the curriculum and term times of the partner school. 

  • Depending on the exchange school, you may choose to shorten your internship period or take your specialization courses abroad. No additional tuition fees are required. 


  • You will also be able to access additional benefits from your exchange school, such as student activities, career service support and on-campus recruitment events.
