2001 : European Fragrance and Cosmetic Master - EFCM : ISIPCA set up a dual major university degree: marketing/international management and science/technology. The courses are taught in English and welcome 20 students each year from all over the world.
6 months’ job experience in a perfume or cosmetics company.
“ The beauty of EFCM is that it provides an inside knowledge of the perfumery and cosmetic sector from a scientific point of view as well as the strategic and managerial aspects of business and marketing in the same areas.”
Chun Yee L. (Malaysia)
“I am so glad that I came to study EFCM in France. It was one of the best decisions I made.”
Christine E. (UK)
“I want to thank all the EFCM people for this programme, as I think that it did help me understand my job and the cosmetic business from different points of view, something that I would never have got if I had stayed in Moscow. EFCM is a very good idea and it brings to the students new horizons of appreciation of the business.”
Irina B. (Russia)
“I really enjoyed the professional and international aspects of the course and I believe it trained me in linking marketing with my scientific background. Both aspects are crucial in such a creative industry. It was a privilege to have trained in the best-known fragrance and cosmetic school, ISIPCA, and to have taken part in the dynamic managerial course at Padua University where the lectures were given by American and Italian professors. Both institutions were welcoming and supportive. On the EFCM course, you think globally – there are students from every continent – but this is undoubtedly the formula for future success. Passionate about perfumes and cosmetics, with a scientific background, the EFCM course provided me with a brilliant global overview and the right set of tools to enter these industries.”
Hazel P.M. (UK)
