10-month, top-ranked Program:

The EDHEC MBA is a 10-month, full-time program ranked N° 44 in the Economist (2014). It is taught 100% in English on the campus in Nice on the French Riviera in France. It is the ideal program for:

• professionals who wish to give a stagnating career a boost
• those with a specialized background who want to develop general management know-how
• professionals who move to another field.
• those thinking of starting up their own company

As the learning style is highly interactive, you will learn both from professors and peers through active discussions and group case studies. As the participants all have a solid work experience, the learning environment is rich and so within minimum time, the learning experience is maximal.
