NEW 2021 - Bachelor-to-Master network (B2M) 

ESSEC Cergy and Asia-Pacific campuses and 5 leading business schools from three different continents have created the Bachelor-to-Master (B2M) network. The objective of B2M is to encourage global mobility for students in management education by facilitating the members’ respective bachelor students to pursue their studies with a master's degree at another member institution. The B2M network provides individual support, waiver of application fees, and other advantages such as a guaranteed invitation to admission interviews for some partners for 20-30 highly selected undergraduate students from each B2M member school, who wish to pursue their studies in a top master program. 

In partnership with IE Business School (Spain), School of Business and Management of The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (Hong Kong, China), Smith School of Business of Queen’s University at Kingston (Canada), University of Mannheim Business School (Germany) and Warwick Business School (United Kingdom).
