EDHEC makes an impact

EDHEC Business School has been offering management training and development programmes since 1906. One of the leading business schools in Europe, it delivers degree courses to over 6,500 students and trains over 10,000 professionals yearly through executive courses and research events.

Developing talents through high quality business education, advancing knowledge and impacting business practices, and contributing to the social and economic debate constitute the School’s purpose. Research conducted by its 142 permanent faculty members and its full-time researchers drives all of these activities and is at the very core of the School’s offerings.

To continue to advance its position amongst the top international institutions, EDHEC Business School has invested over 100 million euros in research and learning infrastructure since 2007, strengthening its corps of senior professors, inaugurating new world-class facilities for its residential campuses of Lille and Nice, and opening executive campuses in London and Paris.

Distinctive Research Policy

EDHEC spends more than 20% of its resources on research – the core of EDHEC’s business model.

Business and value creators benefit directly from the research centres’ contribution which guides major institutions in their global business action. This is the case for the EDHEC-Risk Institute in terms of asset management, the EDHEC Infrastructure Institute for long-term investments and LegalEdhec for business legal management.

Premier academic centre for applied financial research and established in 2001, EDHEC-Risk Institute focuses on investment solutions. Two strategic partnership agreements with the Operations Research and Financial Engineering department of Princeton University to set up a joint research programme in the area of risk and investment management, and with Yale School of Management to set up joint certified executive training courses in North America and Europe in the area of investment management.  (http://www.edhec-risk.com/)

EDHECinfra was created to address the profound knowledge gap faced by infrastructure investors by collecting and standardising private investment and cash flow data and running state-of-the-art asset pricing and risk models to create the performance benchmarks that are needed for asset allocation, prudential regulation and the design of infrastructure investment solutions.(http://edhec.infrastructure.institute/)
