Our strategy

Reflecting back, looking ahead: EDHEC 2025


Starting with a clear ambition – to be the school that prepares highly-skilled entrepreneurs and decision-makers to make an impact on the economy and on society at large – we have defined a plan of action that aims to speed up our internationalization, grasp the emerging landscape of EdTech and Artificial Intelligence and develop our offering towards the future of learning.

At the epicenter of this plan, there are our students and participants, as Human dimension is an EDHEC hallmark. 

To support this project, we develop a comprehensive strategy that seeks to make the EDHEC experience outstanding:

  • Preparing EDHEC for the digital revolution that is set to disrupt our economies. All stakeholders at EDHEC grasp the role of this new era, due to meet expectations of best talent. Pioneer in the field of online training, EDHEC looks to shape the future of learning in the emerging landscape of EdTech and artificial intelligence. Using latest technologies, EDHEC Online aims to cater to the needs of future managers and professionals wherever they are in the world.
  • Internationalization: EDHEC’s international reach comprises its campuses abroad and the local representation by a team of Country Managers in China, India, Russia and USA, as well as the impressive network of academic partners worldwide. Moreover, this global footprint is extended by EDHEC Alumni’s eclectic activities that strengthen the network around the world.
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation: Essential to be prepared for tomorrow’s world, these values are part of our DNA and are a strong demand from our students. The spirit of enterprise and the passion for innovation are covered in EDHEC’s whole portfolio of programmes and extended to our behaviors towards the future of learning

Supporting and rewarding talent

Excellence in education must be accessible to a wide range of profiles, based on academic merit rather than merely on financial capacities. This is a credo embedded in EDHEC’s DNA since its foundation.

To attract and reward talent, to encourage cultural and social diversity on campus, EDHEC Business School runs various schemes to students in order to offer assistance to finance their studies. Some examples are the innumerable interest-free loans, study bursaries, based on social and academic criteria, the international mobility bursaries, to finance a study project or foreign stay and our bank partners to help obtain preferential loans.

EDHEC4ALL, a fundraising appeal targeted at EDHEC Alumni and partner companies, has enabled the coffers of social and welfare bursaries granted each year to be considerably strengthened, currently benefiting almost 20% of students. The success of EDHEC4ALL is proof of the strength of the EDHEC network, with its community of generous Alumni and partners who care about the future of young generations of students.

Several options of financial support are available for students, like interest-free loans, repayable within four years of graduation, study bursaries, based on social and academic criteria, international mobility bursaries, to finance a study project or foreign stay.

THE BUSINESS WORLD central to our Governance

A non-profit association under French Law 1901, EDHEC has set up a unique governance that involves the corporate world in decisions relating to its strategy and development.

EDHEC’s governance is based on three main bodies. The Executive Committee manages all of the Group’s programmes and activities in France and overseas. It accomplishes its mission by following the recommendations of the Board of Governors, the International Advisory Board and the Ethics Board, all made up primarily of EDHEC graduates and partner company representatives worldwide. The desire to open up to stakeholders comes from the business world and is filtered down as far as programme coordination, where each programme has its own Advisory Board with individuals qualified in the design of academic content.
