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.
