This year, then, EDHEC Business School has some news to announce:
- A new campus in Nice and new professors for the Global MBA
- Two new instructional modules: Doing Business in the EuroRegion and Entrepreneuriat et Business Plan for the Executive MBA in Lille
EDHEC Global MBA: a new campus in Nice and new professors
The entering MBA class of 2013 in inaugurating the new Nice campus with a floor of its own; the 5 000 additional square metres include a learning centre, a library, four lecture halls, office space and meeting rooms.
Four additional faculty members have been appointed:
- Anthony Di Benedetto, PhD McGill (marketing)
- Rangarajan K. Sundram, PhD Cornell (finance track)
- Karin G. Kollenz, PhD University of Vienna (strategy)
- Christo Nell, Stellenbosch University Business School (leadership)
The CareerSmart/Career Services programme has been strengthened by the arrival of a coach specialising in new technologies and by new partnerships, with Hays Recruiting Experts Worldwide and the European Centre for Innovative Enterprise in particular, to improve post-MBA career management.
EDHEC Executive MBA: two new teaching modules (Lille) and improved personal and professional mentoring
For the new academic year, the programme is changing by providing offerings that will make it possible for participants to get a better grasp of globalisation, of social networks or of the growing innovation of business models.
- Doing Business in the EuroRegion
Objective: To better understand the organisation and impact of the northern European ecosystem on the running of a business seeking to expand in Europe.
Contents: Three days of instruction to decode the European environment, a case study of European legal strategy, including talks from senior managers on business issues in Europe, and a one-day seminar in Brussels, with meetings with representatives of lobbying groups and the European Union.
- Entrepreneuriat et business plan
Objective: To equip participants with the concrete tools to consolidate their positions as ‘intrapreneurs’ or to guide them through the realisation of innovative business creation projects.
Contents: A 30-hour module on business creation to tackle the theoretical fundamentals indispensable to the drafting and assessment of an appropriate and promising business plan.
Another novelty this year—and in response to growing student demand—the EDHEC Executive MBA will devote more than 20 percent of the programme to strengthening participants’ managerial and leadership skills: seven individual and panel interviews, not to mention public speaking, decision-making, resilience and business ethics workshops, will be held.
