EDHEC Global MBA: Diverse as the World, Individual as You.

If you are looking to gain a real-world business education and an international perspective to help you develop, accelerate or change your career path, then the Global MBA programme in Nice, south of France could be an ideal choice for you.

During the 10-month programme you will have the opportunity to share, learn and connect with fellow participants from every continent in the world – typically we have around 100 students from 30 different nationalities combined with a highly-diverse and outstanding international faculty making it a truly global experience. Personalised options including specialised tracks and tailored projects which account for 3 months of your programme, allowing you to tailor your MBA according to your professional goals.


The intense programme blends core business fundamentals together with a choice of electives, tailored projects and international learning expeditions to enable you to develop your business and leadership mind-set for your future career.

Because of the shorter duration of the course, the Global MBA is especially suited to candidates who already have a strong professional base – on average, participants have 8 years of experience so the ROI can be particularly strong as you will be out of the work place for less than a year but will have all the learning and development you need to define and achieve your ambitions and next steps. You can also have the option to extend your experience through a 6 month internship on completion of your studies.

Each course includes a combination of academic teaching, real-life case studies and group projects to give you practical and actionable learning outcomes from a both an inter-personal and professional perspective.

Business & Leadership fundamentals
