As the business world is in constant transformation, change has become a structural element of society. Within this demanding and exciting context, the ability of organisations to adapt and transition is the new Darwinian standard.
More than just a buzzword, agility is at the heart of mastering shifts, as leaders must succeed in collectively surfing the successive and increasingly frequent waves of change. But by its very nature, an established structure cannot be easily transformed. Structural agility is only made possible through the amplification of individual agility.
EDHEC Executive Education programmes provide tomorrow's leaders with the tools for decoding new business models and challenges. Participants learn to turn major transformations into opportunities for collective success.

Triple international accreditation
Out of 14,000 establishments worldwide, EDHEC is one of just 89 Business Schools to have earned the “Triple Crown Accreditation”.
The EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA Triple Accreditation recognises EDHEC’s academic excellence in Executive Education programmes, the quality of its faculty, its close links with companies on a global scale, and its involvement in the economic environment of its campuses.
Action learning: A unique pedagogical approach
In line with the realities of business and the daily experiences of programme participants, EDHEC Executive Education embraces and integrates action learning in the form of experiential learning, perspective-gaining through reflection, inspirational action-based educational activities such as consulting projects, and immersive seminars.
A real-life consulting project or live problem-solving & cases based on pressing issues facing the organisation that each participant is working for is the cornerstone of every Executive Education course and a true learning catalyst. During the consulting project for example, participants address strategic and economic aspects while being tutored by EDHEC professors. The project provides a return on investment for the company.
Immersive seminars encourage group cohesion by combining high standards, compassion, motivation, and enthusiasm while enabling members to surpass their own limits. Programmes allow for in-depth work on one's leadership style, reinforced by individual coaching.

The contribution of its research has earned EDHEC Business School distinguished international recognition.
To recreate myself, feel challenged and be open to new professional experiences, were my primary motivations for attending a leadership programme. It was clear from the onset that my values were in harmony with those integrated into the course, enough to convince me that I had made the right decision. The personal transformation, enhanced skills, and relationships built with other participants and teaching staff, were priceless.

The quality of the EDHEC Executive MBA programme and its academic staff are of an impeccable standard, just as I expected of a highly ranked Business School. But what makes EDHEC truly stand out in my opinion, is the school’s consistent ambition to strive for excellence while at the same time making you feel part of a family, where participants are encouraged and supported to grow both professionally and personally.

Only 1% of Business Schools worldwide have achieved the prestigious triple-accreditation that gauges teaching quality, links with the business world, innovation, and the involvement of the Business Schools in the economic environment of their campuses. This is due to the assessment process being very rigorous and the standards so high. EDHEC is proud to be one of the few Business Schools (just 89 out of 14,000) to hold the EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA Triple Crown Accreditation. Moreover, EDHEC is one of the world’s first Business Schools to have been awarded the two foremost international accreditations, EQUIS and AACSB, for its activities. This is a testament to the superior academic quality of its MBA programmes (Global MBA, Executive MBA, EMBA in Healthcare), and other leadership certificates and diplomas, recognised on a global level.
EDHEC’s excellence and commitment to being number one are confirmed by continuous placement in the lists of best academic institutions worldwide. The publication of the 2021 Financial Times ranking of European Best Business Schools cemented EDHEC Business School’s presence among the European top 10 for the fourth year running.
