The EDHEC International Advisory Board discovers Station F and EDHEC's expanded and completely redesigned Paris campus

Written on 04 October 2018.


Since its creation in 2002, the International Advisory Board (IAB) has the mission of advising EDHEC on the development of its international strategy.

The IAB is presided by Franck Moison (EDHEC 1975), Vice Chairman of Colgate-Palmolive. It is composed of international personalities from the academic or business world, and meets twice a year.

 

EDHEC Business School at Station F

After last meetings in Nice, Lille and New York, the annual autumn meeting was held at Station F, to meet the EDHEC start-ups and advise them on their international development, followed by a meeting on the Paris campus. "EDHEC reflects the world, which becomes more reachable by technology and where ideas and people travel and evolve quickly. The school has made spectacular progress in terms of internationalization, keeping close its identity and taking advantage of its uniqueness. It is a major source of pride for me to contribute to its development in this way. With the IAB, we will continue to support the school in building its 10-year vision of international priorities, while making sure that EDHEC meets the expectations of major global groups," says Franck Moison, President of the EDHEC International Advisory Board.

 

A brand new campus in the heart of Paris

The Paris campus reopened in September after a major extension during the summer, which both doubled its surface area and renewed all the educational facilities. The IAB members have thus contributed to EDHEC's strategic analysis on several of main pillars, always with an international dimension: further development of entrepreneurship, international programmes and visibility of EDHEC's expertise.

EDHEC has made spectacular progress in terms of internationalization, keeping close its identity and taking advantage of its uniqueness, Franck Moison, President of the EDHEC International Advisory Board.

 

For Emmanuel Métais, Dean of EDHEC Business School, "the IAB plays a crucial role in the development of our strategy and in EDHEC's international development. The fact that business leaders give their time to challenge our projects and provide input for our thinking is an important part of the virtuous circle that is so dear to us: it ensures that we set up research projects and design programmess that meet the expectations of global companies and have an impact on society."
