EDHEC has been invited to become a GMAC member along with four other higher-education institutions (prestigious schools and universities in China, India and the USA). EDHEC becomes the fourth major French business school to enter this exclusive circle geared to promoting management education throughout the world.
For Olivier Oger, Dean of EDHEC Business School, becoming a member of GMAC “is not just an honour, but also the proof that EDHEC has now attained a pivotal position among international business schools. This recognition represents a new stage in our development, lends weight to our proactive internationalisation strategy and endorses the growing reputation claimed by our programmes outside France.”
“We are pleased to welcome these five schools,” said David A. Wilson, GMAC president and CEO. “The fact that more than half of this group is from outside the U.S. continues to demonstrate the growth of quality management education around the world.”
GMAC is an international not-for-profit organisation comprising universities and management schools. GMAC is the founder and the designer of the GMAT exam used by 2,000 international universities and institutions to assist in selecting students for admission. For key participants in the management education field, GMAC is a forum for sharing experience and ideas and for promoting high-quality management education worldwide. Each year, GMAC also publishes highly-anticipated research reports that analyse changes in the sector worldwide based on representative panels of former pupils, students, schools and recruiters.
GMAC is based in Virginia, USA, and currently has 205 higher-education member institutions in 22 countries, 66 of which are based outside the USA.
