Who will be the next game changer in five years, turning business codes on their head? In an ever-changing world, managers must become true entrepreneurs who are prepared to rip the rule book apart.
This is why, more than just a school that trains in business, EDHEC is a school of business, combining research excellence with academic excellence. A school that innovates by stimulating an entrepreneurial spirit and creativity. A school that is both committed and engaging, prioritising people and the development of soft skills. A school that gives managers the know-how and tools, but also the open-mindedness and mental agility to invent new models.
EDHEC is a unique model, blazing new trails in entrepreneurship in education, born of and for business, and creating entrepreneurs who are themselves capable of shaping and recreating business.
In an increasingly complex and competitive environment, the businesses that hold their own are those that think ahead and challenge established models.
This is why we hold research at the heart of the EDHEC model, dedicating more than 20% of its resources to it. Practical, directly usable in companies and creating value, the work of its research and expertise units enlightens large institutions and companies in their understanding of global business. This work also feeds into EDHEC programmes, supported by an international teaching faculty of high standing and designed in conjunction with many partner companies. This unique approach to teaching, created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, relies on methods that favour business cases, real-life situations and experimentation. It continues through the EDHEC Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) incubator, which stimulates the setup of more than 100 businesses a year and has contributed to the creation of a net total of 650 jobs.
At EDHEC, excellence is measured as much by the skills we pass on as by the qualities we bring out in people.
For over a century, EDHEC has taught its students independent thinking, non-conformism and an entrepreneurial spirit. Recognised on the international stage and regularly featuring in the top 20 global ranking for academic excellence, its programmes aim to develop inventiveness and quick thinking by bringing students face to face with the realities of global business, in a “learning by doing” approach. They are supported within ultra-modern, multicultural campuses, designed for living and interaction, where 91 nationalities work together and can exchange viewpoints and practices. These aspects make EDHEC a site of wisdom and experience, anchored in reality and the challenges that lie ahead for the managers of tomorrow.
