Singapore hosting EDHEC’s first “Doing Business in Asia” Global MBA Business Trip

Written on 26 April 2012.

EDHEC Global MBA participants were thus able to analyse Singapore’s unique business model, which has proven extremely successful for businesses intent on investing in Asia. “It was like having detailed access to the secrets of a thriving 300-billion dollar company: Singapore is the world’s best case study,” says EDHEC International Programmes Director Pierre d’Huy, who designed this innovative learning expedition.

The trip was undertaken by the “Global Leadership Track” participants of the EDHEC Global MBA. Delivered entirely in English, the EDHEC Global MBA is intended for managers from all walks of life who wish to change the direction in which their professional career is going. There are two intakes a year, one starting in September and the other in January, which host more than sixty students at the EDHEC Campus located in Nice, on the French Riviera. With over 25 nationalities and an average age of 32, the EDHEC Global MBA is acknowledged as N°1 worldwide for the diversity of its student body (The Economist 2010).

The opening of the campus in the centre of Singapore’s business district resulted from a successful response by the EDHEC Group to a call for tenders, after being asked by Singapore Authorities to take part in a cluster of excellence, working on the development of education and finance in Singapore. The Campus provides part-time courses (PhD in Finance, MSC Risk and Investment Management) It also hosts the EDHEC-Risk Institute-Asia centre, which develops research programmes with Deutsche Bank, Amundi ETF, Axa Investment Managers, Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking, Eurex, and CME Group.
