New academic year for the Financial Economics track !

Written on 21 September 2012.

This 6 September was the first day of the new academic year for the Financial Economics track on the Nice campus. The master’s programmes are taught entirely in English and draw many international students. Welcomed by Pascale Viala, head of the track, 336 students, 53 percent of them international students of all nationalities, have thus arrived at EDHEC.

Ms. Chen Shuyun, for instance, is from Qingdao, near Beijing, and has been in Nice, where she is going to begin the first year of the Master in Management, for only ten days: “At EDHEC I can acquire fundamental knowledge of finance, and the second-year internship is very important to finding a job. The new academic year has started well, the School gives us a lot of help getting settled in—a tour of Nice, for example, and a list of housing offers from which you can take your pick.”

Francesco Lupis is Italian and Philippe Lendeckel is German. They share an apartment in the centre of town with one other person, an apartment they found with the help of the housing office. Elena Dopova, who is Russian, lives with French friends. Francesco wants to work in investment banking, and he finds the people of Nice friendly but is surprised at how early shops close. He shares Philippe’s impressions of the beginning of the new academic year at EDHEC and finds that the presentation was very professional: “I was impressed by the quality of the professors, who are researchers who take the time to teach, too.” Elena notes that “the faculty is highly international, which is important for me, as I’d like to work in an international company, though I haven’t yet chosen my specialisation.”
