Loans

Bank Loans

As an ESSEC participant, you may be eligible for a preferential rate bank loan with the Cergy branch of LCL, which covers full tuition and is repaid starting at the end of your first year of work. Please be advised that loan applicants are strictly required to have a guarantor living in France. According to the banks, the guarantor must earn enough to cover the monthly loan payments but also either be a French citizen, a close family member and/or both. Additional fees and expenses will be the responsibility of the participant.

Prodigy Finance

Participants from 150 different nationalities looking to apply to the Global MBA program may apply to Prodigy Finance loans. Contrary to the banks in France, Prodigy does not require a collateral or co-signer. These loans are granted on the participant's future earning potential and do not take into account credit history. Interested candidates may apply online on the Prodigy website. There is no hidden fee or early repayment fee. Interest rates may vary depending on individual profiles. Funds are directly dispersed to the school in euro (€), thus no exchange rates are borne by the participant. The sooner you apply, the better. We advise you to carefully go through the Prodigy website to check on your eligibility before applying.
