For over a century, ESSEC has been a centre of excellence, developing programmes that promote the values of freedom, openness, innovation and responsibility. The ESSEC model is founded on individual experience and academic excellence, giving consideration to the common good in decision-making, knowing how to listen and question to effectively anticipate tomorrow’s management challenges, and weighing economic challenges with social costs. At ESSEC, we believe that tomorrow’s leaders can create a world that has meaning for us all. Selecting the right candidates for our programmes is critical. That’s why the GMAT exam is an integral part of our admissions process. At ESSEC, students are at the heart of our mission and the GMAT exam helps ensure we select candidates who can succeed in our rigorous programmes. Educating future leaders is the ESSEC commitment and the GMAT helps us select the best students with the right qualities and skills to achieve our programme goals.
