You will take three of the following five online foundational courses in the July/August period prior to arriving on campus. Depending on your background, the Selection Committee may require you to take certain classes or allow you to choose three courses from the list.
The objective of this course is to provide you with a solid grounding in the principles and practices of finance and to develop your understanding of the tools required to make good financial decisions.
This module aims to provide you with knowledge and understanding of key management issues in corporate finance and the market for financial assets.
This course objectives are to equip you with sound understanding of the fundamental concepts and vocabulary used in statistical modelling and make you aware of the powers of data analysis. It will enable you to correctly assess the validity of current techniques to common business situations, use simple Python programs to manipulate data and expressions, and confidently handle the presentation and interpretation of data using python language.
The course is designed to provide you with an overview of the foundations of financial accounting, with a practical focus on financial statement analysis and the valuation of public organisations. These foundations are deemed necessary for students to successfully pursue their studies at master's level.
The purpose of this course is to equip you with a fundamental knowledge of marketing and to demonstrate the key role that marketing plays in any organisation. You will gain a better understanding of what marketing is and its role in the firm, as well as the process of value creation from the perspective of customers, producers and society at large. You will learn how to mix various marketing tools and techniques in a coherent manner.
The primary objective of this course is to help you answer important strategic questions for companies or organisations, such as: What business will we be in? How do we compete for resources and create value? How do we organise for and assess performance?
In this course, you will focus on the complex and multidimensional nature of strategic decision-making.
Core modules are classes that must be taken by all students of the programme.
The purpose of this course is to highlight essential elements of ethics in business. After an introduction to ethics and the main approaches to ethical decision-making, the course will focus on more specific ethics questions related to topics such as globalisation and responsible leadership. You will participate in the Lille World Forum, interview one of the speakers and write on their best practices.
Each semester, as an MSc in Global & Sustainable Business student, you will take an Industries in Focus course. You will undertake an in-depth exploration of the opportunities that sustainable development offers in five different industries, for example, energy, food, data-based businesses, fashion, health, mobility or real-estate.*
- Food industry ‒ How to feed 10 billion people in 2050
Real estate ‒ A broad value approach to green buildings
The Industries in Focus course in the first semester includes an introduction to sustainability, a general overview of the kinds of business opportunities it offers and an exploration of the industry dynamics that amplify these opportunities. In the first semester, you will study two industries and conduct an assignment in which you analyse a third industry of your choice.
In the second semester, you will study three industries.
- Fashion ‒ Design as a catalyst for circular transformation Internet-based industries ‒ Data sustainability Mobility ‒ Integrating transport flows through the sharing economy
*Industries and topics change regularly.
An increasing share of total spending by manufacturing- and service-based organisations lies outside of national boundaries and, thus, their direct control. Their cost efficiency, ability to innovate and value propositions to customers depend on the way in which purchasing processes are organised and on sustainable relationships with suppliers. The aim of this course is to provide you with an appreciation and understanding of the key principles and theories of purchasing and supply management and its role in a given organisation. You will learn this in the wider context of complex global supply networks and the need for ethical and sustainable working practices. A particular emphasis will be placed on corporate due diligence practices as they pertain to respecting fundamental rights and internationally accepted labour standards along supply chains. The demand for integration and cooperation between various actors will, therefore, be a key focus.
The research methodology course prepares you for the master’s thesis project you will undertake in your second semester. The course covers the full research cycle, from problem definition to reporting, using assignments to develop a research proposal that can be used as a starting point for your thesis project. The topics we cover will also apply to practical research problems you will encounter in a business and consulting work setting.
This course takes a professional perspective on the role of the sustainable supply-chain manager in ensuring that goods are sourced and expedited optimally and that sustainable choices are made with respect to corporate strategy, brand, time to market and so on. Supply-chain learning is a hands-on multi-competency module with technical and strategic dimensions.
On completing the course, you will be able to understand a range of circularity and supply-chain elements, the key drivers of operational and supply-chain performance, and their interrelationships with pricing strategy. You will also be able to create and improve operational processes, formulate an integrated supply-chain strategy and apply operational rationalisation and decision-making tools.
International finance is an indispensable societal tool, with goals including profitability, performance and stability. In the face of social and environmental challenges, however, it must evolve to understand and provide risk-management and sustainability solutions. The objective of this course is to provide you with a global vision of risk, including governance, legal and geopolitical risk, within the framework of social and environmental responsibility.
On completing the course, you will be able to understand the constraints of modern finance in the face of sustainability challenges, apply the basics of ESG investing and manage legal risks through regulatory compliance.
The digital marketing trifecta of earned media, paid media and owned media raises its own questions and opportunities in an era of user-generated content. How to gain more exposure to web properties with search-engine optimisation (SEO) and pay per click (PPC)? How to leverage media for a comprehensive marketing strategy? How to advertise using PPC? How to pay influencers? How to share reviews? Mentions? Reports?
In addition to planning social-media marketing strategies and communications, you will gain a solid understanding of how to optimise the management and coordination of social-media channels and gain insights into the technical side.
This course will give you an understanding of how marketing is evolving with the role of business in society. It will enable you to relate to the principles of sustainability and the opportunities and challenges this presents for marketing. To this end, its themes will focus on environmental issues, the challenges facing marketing managers in international markets and how their decisions influence the sustainable behaviour of global consumers.
On completing the course, you will be able to develop a sustainable marketing strategy aligned with the company’s values, develop the marketing mix, set specific objectives and avoid the trap of greenwashing, striving for greater sustainability impact.
As part of the personalisation period of your MSc programme, you will be able to choose one certificate to complete or broaden your expertise by taking part in a learning expedition and follow several elective courses.
All students must complete a Master’s project, which provides the opportunity to develop strong writing and analytical skills and to gain expertise on a given topic.

Helping you settle in France
The International Students Office – a team you can trust
Moving to a foreign country can be daunting, so it’s reassuring to know that the International Students Office (ISO) is there to help. The ISO welcomes more than 3,000 international students annually, helping them to settle in France and lending them support in daily life. It organises orientation events and multicultural seminars to welcome them to the EDHEC campuses in Lille and Nice. The team guides students through administrative procedures before their arrival and during their stay and answers any questions they may have about French systems (medical and home insurance, banking, resident permits, etc.).
Finding you a home from home
Once officially enrolled, we will help you to find suitable accommodation, either in an EDHEC residence or privately owned accommodation. The International Students Office is on hand to provide you with a list of apartments, halls of residence and other types of housing that fit your criteria. You can even ‘visit’ them virtually on our new Housing website. Our team will do everything they can to make arrangements with the owner and secure your booking. They can also arrange to pick you up from the airport on your arrival (where possible) and take you directly to your new home. The International Students Office also organises orientation events and integration seminars to welcome international students to the EDHEC campuses.
Untangling the red tape
European Union students can live and study in France as long as they have a national ID card. No passport or visa are required.
Before arriving in France, students from outside the European Union must obtain a student visa from the French embassy in their country of origin or residence. Non-EU students must also have a valid passport from their country of origin.
One of the requirements for most visa applications is proof of accommodation in France. EDHEC's International Office is familiar with the visa formalities for most countries and will provide you with the necessary paperwork to complete. If you are concerned about your visa application, you can contact the International Office, provided you have already checked the relevant pages in the Welcome Guide and contacted your local embassy.
Parlez-vous français ?
EDHEC offers complementary French courses to all international students enrolled in our MSc programmes. Our French classes span all levels of ability, from complete beginner to advanced language skills. The goal is to support your assimilation into French culture and give you the linguistic foundations ‒ grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing and comprehension ‒ to express yourself in French.
- Class size: 10‒25 students per group
- MIM 3 hours per week (30 hours per semester + 6 hours of group projects)
- MSc 2h a week (15 hours per semester)
Instructor qualifications: Courses are delivered by an officially accredited French language teaching institution.
International Student Office | EDHEC Business School
[Music] Title: “International Student Office”
I just got accepted at EDHEC business school. Now I need to organise my arrival and find
accommodation. Luckily the international students office helped me all along this process.
All good, I'm ready. It is now time to reach France. On arrival, three key moments are organised to help me settle in: the welcome session, the services fair and the integration day.
I get a lot of practical information on different topics such as health insurance, public transportation, life in the city, and so on.
I met representatives from different EDHEC departments and partners during the service fair.
I participate in group activities, meet new friends and discover the campus.
Throughout the year, I visit ISO whenever I need assistance in my daily life in France.
Time flies, my experience at EDHEC is coming to an end. The international student office has been of great support before and during my stay, and it will remain available even after my departure.
Thank you to the International Students Office - Camilla Garcia Biel
[Music] A big “Thank you” to the International Students Office.
Camilla Garcia Biel. MiM Business Management student. Class of 2022.
So my name is Camila Garcia Biel. I'm a 26 year old international student from Peru, I'm doing the MiM track which is a three-year-long programme. The first year, you start with basic courses, with administrative courses. Then there is a year for professional immersion, and then I specialised in strategic finance and commercial intelligence. The most important thing is that out of all the business schools in France, EDHEC was the only one to come to Lima and actually meet the prospective students. After that I was completely sold. As soon as I knew that I was gonna come here, I was enrolled et cetera.
The first contact you have is with the international student office and they absolutely help you with everything. Starting with the visa process, with the housing process... They also help with anything you really need.
So arriving in France, what surprised me, for very good like very positive, was the international environment that I experienced living in the residence and coming to school. I was immediately in contact with people from different countries that I had never seen. And what scared me a little bit, was that the French level that i had before coming and the French level needed to be here. The gap was obvious, but people, especially in Lille, were very nice when I was trying to communicate with them. Even if i was using some english words or even some spanish words, they were really nice.
The reason why I chose France as my home, is that it's the perfect balance from a latino point of view of the latin culture and the european culture. In the daylight you can see the difference and in the nightlife you can see the similarities. Differences and similarities that, at the end, really helped me develop myself as a person. And I think that's something that every international goes through and learns from. My first memory at EDHEC, it's the full day as i call it. It's the first day that we gather in the main hall and then we have outdoors activities, and then we eat together, they introduce us to the programme, they introduce us to the school. Being able to experience the location and the classes and the buildings, which are amazing, it's like a reality shock but a very positive one.
So if i had the all the amazing team from the ISO or the international student office members in front of me, the first thing that i would say would be definitely "thank you"!
Thank you, and thank you... Thank you for your help, thank you for your patience, thank you for your time. They really make the difference in the transition. The job that they're doing in that assistance, it's beyond what I've heard from other friends from other schools, from even other countries. For example, during the pandemic, they were very active and they helped us. And they sent us links for call centres, in case you needed to talk to someone, like psychological call centres and nutritionists, like they really take care of us in a very global aspect. I would just say thank you many times. The international office helps us because for example, they organise different cultural nights. The school has a lot of associations and many of them work with international students, for example ,there's one called "Open Up" and they organise trips for international students. There are many ways to feel not or not feel homesick, and at the end of the course, it's a very amazing place to make amazing friends and that also helps.

How to finance your Master’s?
As part of its strategic plan to "Impact Future Generations", EDHEC has committed to enabling talented students to pursue their studies through a diverse and transparent scholarship scheme. The French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs also offers a large number of grants and scholarships, and there are numerous bodies worldwide supporting the study of international students wishing to embark on a master’s programme. Below is a comprehensive overview of the scholarships, grants and loans available.
EDHEC Business School's comprehensive scholarship scheme aimed at MIM & MSC candidates
So my name is Michelle Sisto I am the associate Dean for graduate studies at EDHEC Business School. So within that perimeter, it englobes the PhD programme, our
programme Grande Ecole, Master in Management and all of our specialised MSc programmes.
[Music] “What types of scholarships and financial aid does EDHEC offer to international students?”
Regarding scholarships available for international students, and even for our French students, EDHEC has a strong belief in making education possible for students coming from diverse horizons, backgrounds, and have both the economic levels and what they studied previously, regional differences, and so we've put in place a multitude of opportunities for scholarships to encourage that diversity in our classrooms. We have some scholarships that are academic merit-based, aiming for excellence in the profile of students. We have some scholarships that are more oriented for particular regional areas, and we have some scholarships that are also oriented towards diversity. For example, women in finance and women in data science, where we see that we still don't have a sufficient number of women in those areas in the profession, and also in the programmes. And then we also have scholarships
that can be requested, when students are actually in the programme, should there be an instance where somebody's situation changes dramatically while they're already a student here. We have a special commission that looks at changes in the situation for exceptional scholarships.
[Music] “What is a merit-based scholarship and what are the selection criteria?”
So our merit-based scholarships are really based on the profile of our candidates. What we're looking at, when students apply to our programme Grande Ecole and to our MSc programmes, we're looking at their full profile. So their academic background, how they perform in their previous academic studies… We're looking at things like their score on GMAT or the TAGE MAGE or the CAT exam, some kind of aptitude test. We're also looking at the type of school that they went to previously, but that's not the major issue.
It's really where they were. Did they perform really well? And as EDHEC academic excellence is a key driving force for education, we want to offer scholarships to encourage those types of profiles to come to EDHEC. Because we know they have choices amongst diverse, very strong schools, and our aim is to bring the very brightest and the best to EDHEC.
[Music] “How does EDHEC approach need-based scholarships for international students?
For need-based scholarships, we have one system for our French students, and then for international students, we're looking at the profiles of our students. What we will look at
is, what is their overall situation, what is their profile and how can we make an offer to them that would render their participation and education in EDHEC more feasible for them.
[Music] “Describe EDHEC’s new approach to scholarships”
As I mentioned earlier EDHEC really believes in bringing diverse and excellent profiles to our school, and so our approach in terms of scholarships is evermore going in the direction of diversity and inclusion. So we're currently offering, as I mentioned, a scholarship for women in data science and in finance. We also have scholarships that are called the “make and impact” scholarship, and “make an impact” is our tagline at EDHEC. Our strategic plan is really EDHEC for future generations, and so we're looking for this “make an impact” scholarship, for students who have shown in the past that they're willing to engage in their local communities and environmental projects. With coming to EDHEC, the education that they're going to receive here, is going to propel them forward to the next step where they'll make an impact, a further impact, and so what we do for that scholarship is, we ask students to apply with an essay and tell us something about what they've done in the past and where they wish to go. And so for those students, we have a special scholarship. We're also looking to increase now, in line with our strategic plan, for greater diversity and inclusion on socioeconomic as well as cultural, regional, gender differences, and expand our portfolio of scholarships. So we're working on offering more scholarships for high potential women, specific scholarships for certain regions. In terms of regional scholarships we already have some for example: with the French embassy in India we have a special scholarship that pays up to 15 percent of students tuition fees, likewise in Russia with a scholarship that's a hundred percent for a student applying for an MSc with an excellent profile. We work with Campus France. We also have Eiffel scholarships. In Colombia for example, we work with local players like ColFuturo and there's lots of information on the website so anyone who's wishing to apply to EDHEC should definitely look at the “financing your studies” part and reach out to our admissions team to get more information as to what financing is available from their particular region. As we move forward, we will continue to expand this offer both in terms of the number of scholarships and in terms of the amount.
Currently EDHEC issues about 5 million euros in scholarships every year across our graduate studies. About a quarter of all of our students do receive some type of financial aid, and part of our plan moving forward is to expand that to an even higher percentage of students. And for some of our students, to go all the way up to 75% of tuition fees that would be covered for those who are the most in need, notably students coming from particular backgrounds or potentially zones of conflict, or refugees and, or recent immigrants from areas that have been touched negatively by world events.
[Music] “Why is diversity important to EDHEC? How does it relate to your mission to make an impact?”
Well thank you for that question, I think that you know we're in the age that we're living in right now, we've seen that diversity and inclusion is a global issue. We have some researchers within our school, who study the positive impact of diversity and inclusion on the performance of companies. But we believe that diversity and inclusion is essential, to bring a diversity of perspectives to solving some of the major societal stakes that we're facing right now, the challenges that we're facing. So what do we mean by that? Now when we talk about women in finance and women in data science, with the algorithms that are currently directing quite a bit of our lives right now. If the data that goes into those algorithms or the people who are writing those algorithms are not representative of the society at large, then we may end
up with situations where they're detrimental to certain aspects of certain groups in society.
Algorithms that scan CVs, algorithms that give us suggestions for what we should be reading or watching or eating even. So I think that diversity is necessary to have a more equitable society. Things like climate change, bringing together people who come from diverse backgrounds around the world, seeing how its impacts differ around the world and how we can globally work together to find solutions. Of course the strongest element recently is the global pandemic, and we can see that something like this can only be solved by global collaboration.
So bringing together people from all over the world and these diverse perspectives, what we hope to do is to encourage our students to grow into leaders with a global perspective, in order to collaboratively solve some of the big problems that we're facing now.
“Are your scholarships fee waivers only or do you also offer financial support for travel, housing, and other study expenses?”
Currently EDHEC’s scholarships focus on the tuition fees, although some of the people that we partner with do offer stipends for living, for example the Eiffel scholarship. To be eligible for the Eiffel scholarship, students need to apply and be admitted before early December but that is a scholarship that is within the French ministry and that covers about 1200 euros a month stipend for students in order to cover living expenses, rent…and there are some scholarships that also look at fees for the flights to and from France. So it varies but the bulk of our scholarships are really just focused on the tuition fees.
[Music] “Any scholarship application tips you’d like to offer?”
My first tip would be to make a request. Don't hesitate to make a request. As they often say: if you don't ask, you certainly don't receive. So not to be shy in reaching out and aiming for one of our scholarships. I think another tip would be, for the scholarships that require essays, to take the time to build an essay that really responds to the question that's asked for the particular scholarship, and make it quite personal. What we want to do, when we're evaluating these essays, is get to know the person behind that essay. What's their real desire to make an impact for example, if it's in line with the sustainable development goals, and convince us
that you're somebody who would bring your expertise, your enthusiasm, your drive, and your values to our community, here at EDHEC. And lastly, I would say, be absolutely authentic in what you say and what you write.
[Music] “Is there anything else you’d like to share?”
So I'd just like to add, that you know, beyond the direct scholarships that we've talked about here, at EDHEC there's an institution-wide number of initiatives in order to offer our education and render education more affordable to a wide group of candidates. For example, in our undergraduate programmes, there are students working on a programme that's called “Cordée de la réussite”, where they're going into local high schools, that tend to have and be in areas, that are considered considered disadvantaged or that don't have as high proportion
that go into higher education, to encourage those students to believe that they can access and succeed in higher education. And then we offer up to 75 percent of fees for students who come through that path. In addition, over the last year, I think one area that we're very happy with and grateful for, is during the pandemic we made a call out to all of our alumni and to some of our corporate partners to request additional funding for direct additional scholarships to students. Unfortunately, we had a number of students over time whose family situations changed. Either their family business had a problem or that sadly there was some severe illness or even death in the family. So we wanted to make sure that those difficult events didn't also have an impact on our students' ability to continue with their education. And our alumni really stood up to the call and we raised close to a half a million euros for direct additional aid to our students. So I think there's a very strong sense of community at EDHEC,
and we hope that the students for whom we can make this extra offer available, will continue to be part of that community as they move on to their careers afterwards, and be part of a virtuous cycle of ongoing financing of studies for everyone.
Scholarships and financial aid can be critical factors when it comes to embarking on a master’s programme, so we aim to make the process as simple as possible. All candidates who are accepted are automatically considered for an EDHEC scholarship. The decision of the Scholarship Committee will be conveyed by email in tandem with the admissions decision.

“Who are the 3 companies collaborating on case studies with EDHEC students from the MSc Global & Sustainable Business?”
[Emmanuel Mannooretonil. Vice president of New Business & Innovation at Butagaz]
Hello, My name is Emmanuel Mannooretonil
I'm the Vice President of New Business & Innovation at Butagaz.
We are an energy supplier, we are pretty proud to sponsor EDHEC's MSc in Global & Sustainable Business.
[Simon Locke. Sustainable Design Innovation Manager at The Body Shop.]
My name is Simon Locke, I'm from The Body Shop International and my focus is around sustainable innovation and Future Thinking at The Body Shop.

I am Mylène Engelspach, I am the Director of Transformation CSR & Communication
from Oney Bank.
“What were your highlights?”
[Leanne Lim. EDHEC Student in MSc Global & Sustainable Business]
Different companies want different things from students. So I think it is really good that these projects force us to know that expectations of a company differ depending on what their priorities are. And it is good for us to have that business sense of it.
Having a practical way of learning rather than just textbook learning.
[Fabrio Pedrazzoli. EDHEC Student in MSc Global & Sustainable Business]
I think the most important thing for me was to work in a team. That's why I love this project. We all come from different nationalities. We have different backgrounds. And it's not always easy to work in a multicultural team.
We have the ability to work with students in an academic partnership where they have time to think and reflect. I think one of the common issues we have within business,
we don't have time to do that. We are quite often stuck in our own ways of thinking.
So it is really refreshing for us, to set students a challenge and to really ask them to question how we operate as a business. And to give us ideas and hopes for the future.
We find some common themes between ideas. Which are of interest for Butagaz,
for Oney and for The Body Shop. That's very enlightening. It's also inspiring
for us to get ideas from the outside world into our teams to drive innovations.
See how they have started to really master their topic, but also see how they have gone from understanding a market, a business problem...to developing tangible solutions.
