    Programme versions (90 or 120 ECTS credits)
    To ensure that all MEB students will have achieved at least 300 ECTS credits (Bologna requirement) by the end of the Master programme, students holding a degree with at least 210 ECTS credits are invited to study the MEB programme in the 90 or 120 ECTS credits version. Students with a first degree which consist of less than 210 ECTS credits will be required to complete 30 extra ECTS credits. Therefore
    these students will need a minimum of 16 months to study. Between July and September two extra modules have to be successfully passed: the Research Methods module and the Master’s Thesis. This option is offered in Semester 2 at the Paris campus (French and English track) and the Berlin campus (German and English track).

    Career Perspective

    An employment survey of the MEB class of 2008 was completed in May 2009 and found that 6 months after graduation 87% of graduates were employed. 46% work in a country other than their country of origin. 83% work in an international position. This reflects the strengths of the MEB programme: the student body is very international (no nationality greater than 25% of the total): students study in 2 countries. The average starting salary upon graduation was EURO 41,481. MEB graduates found employment in a variety of sectors: 14% in finance or accountancy / 19% in consulting / 31% marketing or sales / 36% in a broad range of functions. Finally, 95% of the class of 2008 stated they would recommend the programme. Among the reasons given: the added value of the programme (a second set of skills complementing the first degree): a strong international profile and the strength of the School’s reputation in looking for a job.

    Partner universities
    AIT, Bangkok (Thailand), ITESM, Monterrey (Mexico), MDI, Gurgaon (India)
