EDHEC Business School continues its development via the arrival of 11 new professor-researchers for the start of the 2017-2018 academic year.
This wave of recruitment is consistent with EDHEC’s strategic plan and its objective of recruiting 50 professors between 2015 and 2020. Since the onset of the plan, EDHEC has recruited 32 new professors, representing over 15 different nationalities (Dutch, American, Austrian, Belgian, Mexican, etc.) These new arrivals increase the number of permanent professors employed by the School to 167 versus 133 five years ago, a significant 26% increase in the teaching faculty during the period.
EDHEC’s strategic model, based on excellence in research - supported by permanent interaction with businesses and regular soliciting of students for their expectations and opinions - makes the School an attractive proposition on the international academic stage. All these new professors command significant international experience and chose EDHEC for its demanding requirements, whether in terms of research excellence, its commitment to make an impact on the business world and its ability to devise top-level innovative pedagogical approaches for the benefit of students.
“These professors strengthen our pedagogical team and perfectly round out our pool of research expertise. They all hold PhDs, boast highly international profiles and collectively embrace a wide range of fields and disciplines. In particular, Ibolya Schindele’s arrival reinforces our finance research team, while Christophe Croux is set to contribute to EDHEC’s development in the data sciences field, following the School’s launch of an MSc in Data Analytics & Digital Business in September”, explains Christophe Roquilly, Associate Dean for Faculty and Research at EDHEC Business School.
