Whether you're a recent graduate or still studying, ESCP Europe has the perfect solution for summer study.
Our yearly Summer Courses are three-week intensive programmes held exclusively at the London campus. Designed to provide a range of instantly applicable skills and a solid foundation of business knowledge, we mix traditional lectures with interactive group work and guest presentations. With essential general management training and careers advice, too, these are more than just your average Summer Courses!
The two courses run in parallel, with students coming together for collective General Management Training before and during their chosen specialisation. The 2014 Summer Courses run from 23rd June to 11th July (15 days in total, Monday to Friday). Applications will open on 26th February 2014.
Following the final examination, Students who pass their course will receive an attendance certificate and be awarded a total of 12.5 ECTS credits.
For your area of specialised study, take your pick from:
International Management & Marketing
This covers general areas of international business and management, including modules in Strategy, Project Management, Entrepreneurship and Digital Marketing. It will give you an opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of specific business/management functions, with key learning outcomes divided into three categories: Knowledge (common management and business issues), Skills (project management and communication) and Attitude (developing a professional 'can-do' perspective). We will cover the key elements of Management in a contemporary context, focusing on both traditional proven techniques as well as on the latest developments in Digital Marketing.
Finance in London
Finance in London is an introduction to the concepts and models underlying the financial markets. The philosophy is to provide a firm foundation for understanding the different financial instruments, products and services used in the City. Course modules include: Fundamentals of Finance, Financial Strategy, Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity & Venture Capital, Project Finance, and practical trading room training.
General Management Training Sessions
These are joint sessions, with participants coming together to benefit from a comprehensive and intensive general management education.
You will be taken through a real-life case study and shown the hands-on process needed to complete the successful turnaround of a company. These sessions will also address communication techniques, such as public speaking and how to put together effective presentations.
