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 practice of finance and to develop your understanding of the tools necessary to make good financial decisions. 
This module aims to provide you with a knowledge and understanding of key management issues in corporate finance and in the market for financial assets.

The course gives you 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 primary objective of this course is to help you answer strategic questions that are important to companies or organisations. What business do we want to be in? How do we compete for resources and create value? How do we organise for and assess performance? The course focuses on the complex and multidimensional nature of strategic decision-making.

Core modules are classes that must be taken by all students of the programme.

This course builds on the principles of corporate finance. You will learn modern theories on financing decisions and market efficiency, payout policy and capital structure, debt financing and corporate restructuring. 
On completing the course, you will be able to apply corporate policies on payouts and financing and advise on corporate restructuring.

Information technology has become a major organisational asset that leaders need to draw on to achieve the goals of their business strategies. Growing business complexity makes IT decision-making a strategic endeavour that needs to be incorporated into company strategy. Paradoxically, however, many leaders navigate the IT landscape without the right perspectives to enable sound and consistent decision-making. Moreover, leaders can make IT decisions that have a high impact from a business standpoint without weighing up the associated consequences. 
This course gives you the key knowledge, frameworks and understanding you need to make sound IT decisions that support your business decisions.

Managers often face ethical dilemmas in the workplace. Moreover, various stakeholders increasingly expect more responsibility from business agents. This course will introduce you to core business ethics issues. Based on various case studies, you will cover some of the comprehensive analytical frameworks used to address ethical dilemmas and discuss the relevance of ethical concerns in the management of (for-profit and nonprofit) organisations.

You will gain an overview of the existing statistical toolbox commonly used in business applications and apply the concepts you learn to real-life examples in banking, insurance, marketing, advertising and industry. 
You will learn how to analyse datasets, model data, analyse the relationships between variables, test relationships, build confidence intervals and use professional software.

Over the full academic year, students will have two modules on reflexive leadership. The underlying goal is that you carefully and systematically take a critical view of your own assumptions, ideas and language and consider alternative, sense-making perspectives and methods of organising, managing and leading in contemporary firms. 

In line with the global shift from manufacturing economies to service and knowledge economies, business practitioners face new knowledge needs when evaluating a business decision. To succeed in a dynamic, knowledge-based business environment, business practitioners need to know how to identify high-quality information and recognise objective and reliable research on which high-risk decisions can be based. 

 

As a future manager, you will need to know how to conduct high-quality research. Hence, the primary goal of the course is to equip you with the skills you need to understand scientific methods as they apply to the managerial decision-making environment.

This course will introduce you to an enterprise’s responsibility with regard to the fundamental rights of its employees, as well as those of other people whose work is linked to its operations (for example, supplier employees). While this course will give you a basic overview of international human rights and standards, its focus will be on how business enterprises can organise their operations and define their strategies in respect of work-related fundamental rights. Special attention will be paid to corporate due diligence responsibilities as put forward in the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). 

 

You will learn a multi-layered business case for respecting fundamental rights. The objective of the course is to enable you to integrate these concerns when advising companies on strategy and organisation. 

In today’s fast-paced and complex business environment, organisations are undergoing constant organisational transformation. Yet, many large-scale change initiatives continue to fail. On this course, you will learn why these initiatives fail, what the necessary capabilities are that organisations need to manage change successfully and how change management consultants can help organisations to make change stick.

The aim of this course is to greatly expand your understanding of sales, sales management and negotiation. You will develop your critical thinking skills by learning the foundations of relevant topics in sales, sales management and negotiation strategies and develop solutions to a real company problem.

In this practice-focused course, you will learn how to run and manage operations across a range of industrial sectors. The course will cover a host of crucial elements from supply-chain management to project management, ensuring you gain a forward-thinking mindset that will help you make an impact in the world of business. You will be prepared to play a crucial role in operations management to sustain and grow a business, orchestrating all the resources necessary to deliver your firm’s strategy. You will be ready to foster change in managing operations where necessary to achieve competitiveness.

Personalisation period

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. 

The master’s project allows you to put your newly acquired knowledge and skills into practice. If you prove your ability to undertake high quality research, members of the EDHEC faculty or its research centres may offer you the opportunity to deliver your Master Project in the form of applied research, working under their supervision.

The personal and professional benefits of an internship are immense and enduring. The same goes for expanding your global contact network. During your internships abroad, you will develop valuable business relationships that will take your career goals to an international level. Many students find their jobs as a result of internships during their time at EDHEC.paced courses in July-August prior to arriving on campus.

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.).

 

DISCOVER THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS OFFICE WEBSITE

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

 

EU nationals

European Union students can live and study in France as long as they have a national ID card. No passport or visa are required. 

 

Non-EU nationals

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.

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.

SCHOLARSHIPS

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.

[Music]

"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.

[Music]

The Eiffel Scholarship | EDHEC Business School 

[Music] Title: “Eiffel Scholarship” 

Speaker: Sahil Dholakia – Eiffel Scholarship Awardee. 

Melanie, can you tell me about the Eiffel scholarship? 

Speaker: Melanie Colmart - International Recruitment Manager

Hi Sahil. Congratulations on this achievement. The Eiffel excellence scholarship is a programme established by the French ministry for Europe and foreign office. Its goal is to attract the top foreign students into French Business Schools for master programmes. It is highly selective and only the best students with excellent GPAs and profiles are eligible. The Eiffel scholarship awards you a monthly allowance, round-trip plane tickets between your home country and France, health insurance, and cultural activities. So Sahil, you were awarded this scholarship. Can you tell me more about the process? 

Yes Melanie. The international admissions team selected my profile for the scholarship and 
I had to provide them with some extra documents so they sent my whole profile and the documents to the scholarship team. Can you please give some tips for the Eiffel scholarship? 

Yes I will. So first I would like to remind you that the Eiffel programme is a very exclusive scholarship for over a thousand applicants per year; only a few hundred are the lucky awardees. Secondly, you can only apply through an institution. So the first step for you, would be to apply and get admitted to EDHEC. Then before December 1st, our deadline, you need to send all your documents for this scholarship as one pdf. So for the documents, we will ask you for: your cv, your full academic transcripts, a GMAT or GRE and an english proficiency test and the most important part your motivation letter. This is a way to help you stand out for the selection committee and here are a few tips for you. First you need to be sure about your goal, you need to express why the programme, and the scholarship in particular, will help you achieve your dreams. Second, your personality. This is a way to show the committee who you are and why you should be chosen and if you have any extra link with France, this is a way also to give it. So Sahil you went through this process, do you have a few tips for future students?

Okay, so for the applicants I would like to say. Firstly, apply as soon as possible and most preferably before December. Because the earlier you apply, the higher the chances are for you to get selected for the scholarship. And secondly, I would like to say the Eiffel scholarship is the most renowned scholarship in Europe and especially in France. So it is also a big highlighted part of my CV. So yeah exactly, and for the applicants, I would like to say just apply as soon as possible and all the best to you guys.

FAQ of the MSc in Management & Leadership

The EDHEC MSc in Management & Leadership will prepare you for a career in people management. It will teach you the comprehensive principles of management and hone your leadership of people and projects, enabling you to transition to a managerial position. 
You will discover how to be an effective, reflexive manager/leader who considers how to relate to others and how your actions impact others and the wider business ecosystem.

You can pursue any number of managerial careers with an MSc in Management & Leadership, from human resources or change management to executive leadership.

Management involves coordinating or orchestrating a group of people or entities to achieve a goal. Leadership involves encouraging, motivating and enabling other people to work towards a common goal or organisational success.

The EDHEC Master in Management (MiM) is a top-ranked, two-year academic programme designed for students seeking to increase their general management skills. Also known as the Grande École programme, it awards you a double degree: a Master in Management and Master of Science. After the first year of your master’s degree, you can gain a full year’s professional experience or undertake an internship and a six-month exchange at a partner university, before completing the second year of your master’s programme.

 

Our Master of Science degrees are specialised programmes targeted at students who wish to acquire new knowledge in a specific field or further strengthen their existing expertise. If you are a student on the Master in Management programme, you can also earn a Master of Science degree in the second year of your programme, when you choose your specialisation.
