September 2013 sees the delivery of a state-of-the-art campus extension which is not just a new building but a whole new concept, devised around a central hub of student learning.
The new campus will harbour a whole floor dedicated to the EDHEC Global MBA complete with a one hundred-seat amphitheatre overlooking the famous Promenade des Anglais and Mediterranean Sea. A vast common room will provide the perfect chill-out space between classes, several break-out rooms for group work and proximity to the EDHEC Global MBA Careers Centre and Operations staff to allow an easy flow of communication and assistance. The student hub has a gym, sports room, music room, library, canteen, bistrot and recreational space to provide a healthy balance of work and leisure.
Elegance, modernity and functionality are key words in this new campus whose supreme learning environment is sure be the envy of many…
