EDHEC Business School
Global MBA

With 14 all-English programmes including MiM, MSc, MBA and PhD, still more programmes are in development. Expansion plans are already underway in Singapore and London. A unique policy of "Research for Business" strengthens ties with multinational corporations and reinforces EDHEC's recognition among recruiters.
The EDHEC MBA is a 10-month, full-time programme ranked in the TOP 50 MBAs IN THE WORLD. It is taught completely in English on the campus in Nice. It is the ideal programme for:

  • professionals who wish to give a stagnating career a boost
  • those with a specialised 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.
Personal development is the red thread throughout the programme. A personal coach will mentor you for the duration of the programme, encouraging you to grow as an individual and preparing you to take on new challenges. Executive business trips to 2 countries arouse your curiosity and provide an insight into the true potential of developing economies. Finally, to round off the programme, you can tailor your MBA to your career interests through MBA projects such as entrepreneurial projects and executive consulting missions.
