The goal of the Specialised Master® in Strategy and Organisation Consulting is to train participants in corporate consulting and intervention professions. Those responsible for planning and implementing large-scale projects for businesses must have both organizational and managerial expertise, and also the capacity to build a clear strategic vision for the company and its information systems in an innovative context. This programme takes place on our Paris Campus.

Key Features

The ESCP Europe Masters are professional-oriented programmes in specific management areas designed for postgraduates with a clear career goal and lead to a specialisation or double skill in response to corporate demand for highly qualified managers.

This Master is a one-year full-time academic programme designed for students holding a first masters-level academic or professional degree in engineering, business, architecture, medicine, law, pharmacology, political science, the arts, or any other graduate degree.

The curriculum comprises six months of full-time coursework including an international seminar, followed by a company placement lasting at least four months and the completion of a professional thesis to be remitted at the end of the programme.

Courses are taught in English and the national language of our respective campuses.
