Boost your career with an MBA

An MBA gives you new skills, experiences and an expanded network, allowing you to take control of your career and choose where it takes you next. Many ESMT MBA alumni change function, begin work in a new industry, or even take their skills to the international job market with a move to a new country. Some even make the so called "triple jump" and change all three at once.

MBAs are vital for anyone aspiring towards general management or senior leadership roles, but the skills and experiences they offer - including their in-depth focus on how businesses function, grow and overcome challenges - provide alumni with a broad suite of transferable skills suited to any career.

Frequently asked questions

  • What are the application requirements for the Full-time MBA program?

    The MBA programs are designed to fit different profiles. For more detailed information on application requirements please see the dedicated page for the MBA you are interested in.



    However, the following criteria reflect the minimum requirements:

    • At least three years of consecutive postgraduate, professional experience (seven years experience is required for the EMBA)

    • An undergraduate, or first university, degree (bachelor)

    • Strong GMAT, GRE, EA, or BAT scores (the average GMAT score is 640)

  • What is the difference between full-time, global, part-time and executive MBA programs?

    The Full-time MBA, Part-time MBA and Global Online MBA are all suited for participants with at least 3 years of postgraduate experience. The main difference between them is program length and the format, with PTMBA and GOMBA both featuring online, remote learning.

    senior managerial levels

    The application deadline differs depending on the program:

    The Full-time MBA application deadline is in November.
