A very international new academic year on the Lille campus

Written on 28 September 2012.


 New students from China, India, the United States, Canada, Russia, Spain, and many other countries are converging every day on the EDHEC campus to begin one of the programmes they have chosen: EDHEC or ESPEME, of course, or one of the six Masters of Science offered on campus, including the newly created Masters in Global Business.

Olivier Oger, Dean of EDHEC Business School, says: “We are now experiencing a boom in the number of international students, who, in some programmes, account for more than half of all students. Our rank (12th) in the recently published annual rankings of top masters programmes drawn up by the Financial Times reinforces our strategy and underscores the international recognition enjoyed by our programmes.”

To bring the events marking the new academic year to a close, the families of new EDHEC and ESPEME students will be welcomed to the Lille campus for an open-doors day Saturday, 22 September: nearly 1,500 people are expected.

“This day will be the chance to present EHDEC Business School, as well as its strategy, its specificities, its aims, and its teaching philosophy, to the parents. They will also have a chance to talk with EDHEC faculty and staff. They entrust their children to us for us to give them an education, to develop them, and to prepare them to succeed on the job market. We are delighted to receive them and to show them what is awaiting their children during their years at EDHEC,” said Anne Zuccarelli.
