Written on 05 July 2013.

  • New Campus

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…

  • New Professors

Four new professors have been invited in as visiting faculty, each highly recognized for competence in their field, to teach 4 courses, namely:

- Marketing: Anthony Di Benedetto (PhD McGill), Temple University, Fox Bus School, USA

- Derivatives (Finance Track): Rangarajan K. Sundaram (PhD Cornell), NYU Stern, USA

- Strategy: Karin Kollenz (PhD University of Vienna), Associate faculty at LBS; Former strategy consultant at BCG and ADL and VP Marketing Strategy & Insights at T-Mobile Austria

  • Career Services’ CareerSMART

The team of coaches is to be reinforced with the introduction of several new specialists. The existing team of specialist coaches for careers in Finance, Entrepreneurship and Consulting will grow to include a coach in New Technology Careers. The generalist coaches will also grow in number and have someone more particularly involved in Career Change.

A recruitment event in Paris will be held in partnership with HAYS Recruiting Experts Worldwide . The event will include corporate presentations and a student pitch competition.

Working closely with Nice Cote d’Azur on projects targeting foreign direct investment, a new partnership has been formed with the CEEI (European Centre for Innovative Enterprise) to promote and develop European and International start-ups in the region.
