ESSEC (Ecole Superieure des Sciences Economiques et Commerciales)
Located about 20 km west of Paris, ESSEC is one of the three top-ranked Grandes Ecoles that train France's business leaders. The school is small (only 1,200 students) and extremely selective; its curriculum includes challenging courses in finance, economics and management, and is taught in French and English. New residence halls have recently been constructed near the school's facilities in the outskirts of Paris. Financial Times ranks ESSEC as one of the best business schools in Europe and ranks it very high for its MA in Management program and its Executive Education program.
