Blending Theory with Practice


Structure of the Programme: Academics and Internships

This Master in Management - Finance track combines academic study with practical internships, promoting a strong understanding of both theoretical and applied finance. This approach ensures you are well-prepared and flexible across different professional settings.


You have the generalist perspective, then you apply your learning in real-word settings and gain hands-on experience, and finally, you embark on a more specialised perspective depending on your own taste.Explains Laurent Deville, Programme Director.


The gap year is indubitably the most important step of the programme: for most students - including myself - it represented the first real chance to shine in the job market. It is first of all an opportunity to practically learn how to apply in a concrete way the theoretical knowledge acquired in class, and, secondly, the best way we have to understand what we really like to do “outside school”.” Testifies Lorenzo Perlini, MiM – Finance Track student.

Choosing the Right Path: Specialisation Options

In your final year, you will choose a specialisation that aligns with your career goals. Each MSc is designed to deepen your expertise in specific areas of finance. 

In my final year, I chose the MSc in Corporate Finance & Banking . I really enjoyed an investment banking class taught by a managing director at Credit Agricole with a lot of experience in M&A. It was insightful because he effectively demonstrated what banks and companies require. Additionally, EDHEC provides numerous opportunities to interact with professionals through both in class and in networking events. I believe this is crucial for education at EDHEC and extremely beneficial for students.” Lorenzo Perlini, MiM – Finance Track student.


Learning from Industry Experts

The programme’s partnership with financial experts brings real-world insights into the classroom, enriching the learning experience and preparing you for the complexities of the finance industry. 

During my MSc, I had the opportunity to represent EDHEC at the PwC Business Deals Cup, a competition among various schools. Although we did not win the competition, we reached the finals and gained valuable networking opportunities, for which I am very grateful. At EDHEC, we are never short of chances to network.” Continues Lorenzo.
