EDHEC Business School

Make an impact. That’s the three-word motif of EDHEC Business School in France, which is attempting to reimagine the student experience like no other school. Current students speak glowingly about the dynamic international environment, the unmatched support network and the entrepreneurial spirit that permeates all levels of the school from staff through to students. All of those things make EDHEC different, for EDHEC is not a business school, but a school for business.

By teaching students the soft skills required to stimulate creativity, they are in turn ensuring their graduates are at the forefront of the modern business world. The international staff play a crucial role in cultivating an atmosphere that promotes individuality, inclusivity and entrepreneurship at all four of their campuses: Lille, Paris, Nice, London and Singapore. With 8,600 students currently enrolled and a worldwide alumni network of over 50,000 to call upon, you’ll find no shortage of testimonials and glowing reviews of this top European business school on their MASTERGRADSCHOOLS profile.

EDHEC’s flagship program is their Master’s in Management (MiM), which takes place over the course of 2 years and comes in three different formats depending on where you want to specialize: Business Management, Finance or Global Economic Transformation & Technology. It is ranked Top 10 European Business School by the Financial Times, #9 Masters in Management Worldwide and, as you would expect from a school with such a focus on internationalism, includes study trips abroad together with a proven track record of placing graduates in roles with an international scope. Elsewhere, their huge range of one year Master of Science programs also set up its graduates for international success, with 88% starting their post-EDHEC career with an international scope.

There’s no doubt that EDHEC sets its students up to make an impact in the world. The question is: will you be next to do so?
