One Semester Certificate Programs
Students who would like to spend a semester in one of Europe’s leading business schools, improving their business knowledge and learning in an international environment in English, should choose to follow one of ESCEM’s English-taught Certificate programs.
Each one corresponds to a set package of courses worth 30 ECTS and therefore equates to a full semester work load. The English taught programs allow students from all over the world to come to France and benefit from a multi-cultural atmosphere. Without necessarily speaking the language, students are able to live and study in the country that is undoubtedly the world’s top tourist destination.
At this level, students can choose between 4 of 5 different Certificateseach semester, Advanced Certificates are taught in a modular, sequential manner: students focus on one or two topics simultaneously before moving on to new disciplines. This intense method allows for much flexibility autonomy in learning and managing one’s assignments.
Modules are generally taught on just 4 or 5 full days in the classroom with individual and group projects and exercises to be prepared at home between sessions; final assessments are taken during the final class. Free time will depend on the specific schedule of the courses chosen and may not be as frequent or regular as many students are used to. Senior certificates are taught on a more classical semester-long basis, with final assessments for all courses at the end of semester.
At this level ESCEM allows students to take a specialized study track in a variety of different disciplines, many of which will require prior knowledge in the area. The specialized courses are complemented with 3 core courses in project management, resource management and a capstone strategy course. This core element of the graduate programs aims to equip all graduates with important general management skills.
