EDHEC-School 42 teams will work on technological projects and entrepreneurs on the School 42 campus at the heart of Silicon Valley. According to Richard Perrin, associate dean for International Relations EDHEC Business School: " Students of the GETT track will be in immersion on the 42 USA School campus just before their start at Berkeley to learn the basics of coding. In addition, they will jointly carry out consulting missions on a personal entrepreneurial project or in connection with a start-up in the EDHEC ecosystem or School 42". A climax in the academic journey of GETT students. “It’s an incredible chance to go to School 42 in Fremont’’, says Asmaa Taki, Moroccan student of the GETT.
