[Ludovic Cailluet. Programme Director & professor of Strategy & Business History. EDHEC Business School.]
GETT is a series of unique experiences and opportunities starting with a learning expedition for three days out of town in a not-for-profit foundation. And then having dozens of visits to corporations, having to perform real-life consulting projects with cooperation but also not-for-profit or philanthropic organisations.
So EDHEC was a great start to this journey because it laid the basics in management, and then later on, when we moved to SKK we really learned how innovation is happening in big companies such as Samsung and Hyundai. And now that we're here in Silicon Valley, learn about entrepreneurship and how innovation is happening in a start-up environment. And so I think, this master's, not only prepares us to enter a job and then pursue a corporate career. This master's really also prepares us to shape the world that we live in, and to come up with the next big innovation be it in a company or as an entrepreneur.
When I was in my engineering school at "Centrale", I realised that companies were looking for people with double competencies that I didn't have. So that's why I chose to be part of this programme. First, because of its content, which is about new technologies and innovation. It perfectly fits with what I learned before, and then it also gives me a business strategy and final sides that I didn't have.
[Alex Budak. Director, BHGAP & Social Entrepreneur. Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley.]
One of the first things I tell students, as they arrive at Berkeley for the GETT programme, is this is an amazing place to try something and see what happens. So we love people who think about "hey maybe I have this startup idea". This is an amazing place to try to tap into the resources of UC Berkeley. Tap in the expertise of their faculty and give it a shot. It doesn't work out, that's fine. But what an amazing place to try.
[Jeremie Mou Chin Leung]
I had a chance to do my summer internship in Sao Paulo in Brazil, in a crypto fintech from San Francisco. And they used blockchain to provide a solution for international payments. There is no end, you know. And I think that this totally corresponds to me because I come from French Polynesia. And I am very curious, because it's a small island, lost in the middle of nowhere... So technology, I think really, matches my personality and that's why I chose the GETT programme.
[Eric Shih. Vice Dean for Faculty & Research. SKK Graduate School of Business. Sungkyunkwan University.]
Business technology, these are borderless concepts. Look, you bring a bunch of international students, having them do the training in three different countries. Expose them to different contexts, a different way of doing business. Open their mind, open their horizon. install in them the value and importance of this global trade, of this global concept, and global mindfulness. That I think, if nothing else, this will stay with them. The experience and the knowledge they gain. That will allow them to be adaptive no matter where they go. And that going forward, will allow you to be a better manager, a better global citizen.
This international experience will change you. It will open your mind, it will push you out of your comfort zone, but moreover, it will help you understand the global business transformation.

As a Strategic Management scholar with a background in Business History, I believe it essential that our future business leaders understand the long-term implications of technological transformation for society. The development of the Global Economic Transformation and Technology (GETT) programme fulfils my ambition to educate the brightest minds interested in those concepts transforming the world of business and society at large. The GETT track at EDHEC Business School combines the spirit and values of the Grande École: to equip students to participate in the new economy by giving them a strong foundation in business-management skills and exposure to the progressive trends affecting the world. GETT students will embark on a voyage of discovery, attending first-class lectures and tutorials in incredible cities on three continents.

The GETT Programme viewed by a student | EDHEC Business School
The GETT programme gives me the possibility to do two different internships and gives me a lot of professional exposure.
So for me, I decided to do two internships in strategy for La Famille Mulliez, which is a huge family business. And the second one, as strategy and M&A for TF1, which is a media group in France.
During my first academic year, I discovered the strategy part and the finance part. And I really want to see how it works in the real business world. Next year in Berkeley, I really want to launch my own business, my own idea. We will have the opportunity to launch a project. And I think I wouldn't be able to do that if I don't deal with the strategy right now. So the GETT programme is really well constructed. The basis during the first year, then we can do it in practice and verify that it's something we enjoy, and then move on and to open our professional business. The GETT students can apply for different fields and it's quite diverse between the different GETT students.
Most of us have chosen to apply in finance or in the strategy field, because it's more opening ways for the future. For me, I've chosen to apply in strategy and I really want to see how it works at the top management, and to deal with finance and corporate strategy. So that's why I've chosen to join strong companies in different fields. First in retail and then in media. For different companies with which I passed different interviews, they recognised the fact that we know how the markets in Europe, in Asia, and next in Berkeley in the US. And I think that's what makes GETT students really attractive and valuable.
Technology can take different meanings and technology is not only about the device or about a smartphone. Technology is also about the data, what you can do with that and about the fact that you have to be faster. For example in retail, you have to deliver your goods really quickly, and technology can also take this meaning. If we come back to the definition of the GETT programme: Global Economic Transformation and Technology, I think for now the economics world is really changing really fast and I noticed that during my internship. The GETT programme offers the possibility to students, to realise that maybe faster, maybe have the possibility to get a push into their own enterprise. And that's a difference. So I think GETT students bring new perspectives to the table.
What is it like in Seoul? (1/2) - GETT Programme | EDHEC Business School
I'm currently enrolled in the GETT programme, which is jointly offered by EDHEC Business School, Sungkyunkwan Graduate School of Business and University of California, Berkeley.
First of all, I was always interested in working at the intersection of emerging technology and business. And this programme is designed in a way, where we get exposed to a lot of emerging tech. Then again, I was deeply inspired by my mentor who had actually worked in 108 countries. And I think the design of this programme is such that it could unlock these markets for me as well in the future.
One great thing about the GETT programme, that I think lacks in other international master's programmes, is that I am not bound to one place or one location or even to a campus. For example during my semester in Paris, I believed that the whole city was my campus. And now, here I am at Sungkyunkwan, which is a very beautiful ultra-modern campus. The other thing is the international dimension that I get from my education. I am going to be exposed to three different cultures, three different ways of life and working styles. Four months ago, I was getting used to French culture and the way of life. I was eating baguettes with butter in the mornings. And now I've switched it up with kimchi and rice. That's something that I would never have expected from myself a year ago, and the challenges that I've faced on a daily basis have radically changed who I am as a person. When you live abroad, you start trusting your instincts more. You start making decisions that have repercussions, and you start learning how to live with these decisions every day. And that's something that I've seen, has made me grow as a person quite a lot.
So far we've had some incredibly eye-opening courses. For instance, just today, we had a course on crypt economics and blockchain technology. And I learned that Korea, and especially Seoul, is literally the Silicon Valley when it comes to blockchain.
Well a couple of years ago, I couldn't have pointed out Seoul on a map but now that I'm here, I realise that this city is literally at the forefront of cutting-edge technology. For example, I've been here for months and I haven't had to buy a SIM card, because there's Wi-Fi everywhere. While there are thousands of programmes one can choose from, while looking for an international master's programme, especially in business... I was looking for something off the beaten track, something radically new, and something radically different that would set myself apart five years, ten years down the line. And that's why I chose the GETT programme.
What is it like in Paris? (1/2) - GETT Programme | EDHEC Business School
Jeremie Mou Chin Leung
I'm Jeremie Mou Chin Leung, I come from French Polynesia, Tahiti.
And I'm a GETT master's student at EDHEC Business School. When you look at each component of the GETT programme, the first thing is global.
So "global", because of the international dimension. that I was looking for, since I come from French Polynesia. So I wanted to travel around the world. There's "global" in the way that you will get knowledge from every industry that is affected by technology right now. And then you have "economic transformation".
So right now, we're literally in a world in a perpetual movement, in a dynamic which is very difficult to apprehend and to understand. And technology, just because I'm kind of a geek actually, I learned coding all by myself two years ago. So collectively, the GETT acronym was a perfect match for me. There is no end, you know, and I think this totally corresponds to me because I come from French Polynesia and I am very curious. Because it's a small island, lost in the middle of nowhere. And I had to check on the internet, to find knowledge to improve as a person, and to know a lot of things all over the world. So yeah, technology I think really matches my personality and that's why I chose the GETT programme.
Paris is one of the best cities to study, because it's the capital of France. So the fact that EDHEC has a campus in Paris, is a real opportunity. The location is perfect, as we're near the Silicon Sentier, which is the equivalent of Silicon Valley.
I had a chance to do my summer internship in Sao Paulo, in Brazil, in a crypto FinTech from San Francisco. And they used the blockchain to provide a solution for international payments. So this was my last experience in a technology industry, but I also expect from the GETT programme to gain these business abilities. And then I wish to create a combination of these two aspects, so the business part and the coding part. And I think this common language would be very valuable to the recruiters, and I will be able to tell them "okay I'm the right guy for this position".
I just feel really privileged to be a GETT student, because I know that I will have a double degree. I will spend a year in Berkeley. I will visit three continents. I am in a small class and I will create strong ties with my classmates so I think this is the most enjoyable thing about the GETT programme.

What is it like in Paris? (2/2) - GETT Programme | EDHEC Business School
My name is Marie.
I've always been interested in technology but I've always had a major interest for fashion. I've been wishing to work for the luxury industry for many years now, and upon many encounters, exhibitions, readings... I have come to realise that the fashion industry, like any industry, is facing a major reshaping due to digital transformation. And this is why I chose the GETT programme. This industry will lead new talents and will need new people, to think about the long term, to think about how to preserve the authenticity of their brands, while being connected. We can see that thanks to Big Data, thanks to AI, we can propose a more customised service. And if we want to preserve this industry, we have to use what we have within our reach which is technology. Starting off the GETT programme in Paris, is really a thrilling experience because the campus is relocated at the heart of Paris. So we are literally one minute by walk from the Opera, we are five minutes by walk from Place Vendome, ten minutes by walk from le Louvre, from la Comedie Francaise... So you really emerged in that Parisian lifestyle. I'm quite fond of English poetry and there's one poet I really adore, who's Wordsworth. And he has a very short poem and it starts with a simple sentence that really defines the person I'd like to be: "she dwelt among the Untrodden ways".
I think being innovative, being creative even for an old industry like the fashion industry, the luxury industry, is important. What's surprising is that the GETT programme, really gives you the keys in order to understand basically how our economic life works now. Which is quite something actually, it's a very modern programme, so you don't have all the content about old theories. It's connected to now, to the present, and I think this is something we really need to value and promote, because it helps us really become great actors of the future economic life.
It will not only be three years of studying and reading books, I think it will be three years of making sense of what I want to do with my life.

What is it like in Berkeley? (2/2) - GETT Programme | EDHEC Business School
So I'm Asmaa Taki, I'm from Casablanca, Morocco and currently, I'm in the second year of the GETT programme. I'm with the first cohort of the Global Economic Transformation and Technology programme in Berkeley.
By having this opportunity to be in the Bay area, we are in touch with innovative companies and startups. So through this programme, we have discovered innovation is something very specific and it appears on different levels from the business model innovation to process innovation, and try to lay the product innovation.
Here today in Berkeley, what I notice the most, is that they encourage you every time in every situation and I think this is amazing.
GETT is a long-term project. In like 8 to 10 years, I want to take over the family business... And making it to EDHEC, to the GETT programme, is a way to have a comprehensive knowledge on businesses that are applied to the innovation areas.
Innovation in the Bay Area is about looking at the large industries that haven't changed that much in the past, and then replacing them with new technologies that serve exactly the same need in a more efficient way. And I think this is the point too, that interests me the most in this programme. To try to change the industry of my father's company in Morocco, which operates in electricity and automation. And I think this is an industry that hasn't changed that much in the past. And with this programme, I had the opportunity to witness innovation in Asia and America and try to have this big picture of innovation and bring it back to Morocco.

What is the GETT programme? | EDHEC Business School
Technology is changing our everyday lives. It's almost changing the way we are as human beings.
Okay, think about the GPS or Google map, it really hurts your capacity to look at yourself without a smartphone in a city. So it's even changing us as human beings.
GETT. Ludovic Cailluet. Programme Director. Professor in Strategy & Business History. EDHEC Business School.
GETT stands for Global Economic Transformation and Technology. Transformation is the important word. It's about change. Understanding change, foreseeing through weak signals what might be the big thing of tomorrow. So that is usually done through a good understanding of technology, and the last term of the GETT acronym.
That's why the last "T" stands for technology.
The GETT programme is designed for pioneers. First because it's a journey. It's a journey that starts on one continent, in France, in Paris. And then carries on, the students will be in Seoul, in Korea, in Asia. And then in the U.S,. at UC Berkeley Haas, in California. And what they get from that first stop, is the good foundations in Management Studies. So they will learn about strategic management, they will learn about finance, they will learn about financial statement analysis. They will learn about marketing. So they need foundations. They will get foundations, but these foundations will be delivered with case studies and actual examples from innovative corporations, technology cases, conferences by practitioners... so on the one side a very strong academic background plus practical insights.
This district, which used to be the financial insurance district, has now moved to be a tech environment with many startups. Within that very building where we are today, which is the school campus in Paris, but also in the very close neighbourhoods. There are some challenges in being a professor or a programme director, and one of the challenges is to convince the student of the usefulness of some of the things we are teaching. And they don't always realise that theory is very practical, I mean there are a lot of things to be taken from theory. They are very attracted to conferences by practitioners, they want these real life examples. They are very important and we provide them with them, but we also have to teach them things that are less immediate. Things that will last. Methodologies, techniques, so very often in my classes I tell the students "I don't really care about the answers, I'm caring about the way you convince me that you are bringing the good solution."
This international experience will change you, it will open your mind, it will push you out of your comfort zone, but moreover it will help you understand the global business transformation.

Experience the Silicon Valley mindset - GETT Programme | EDHEC Business School
Berkeley is in the Bay Area and is such an exciting place to be right now, this is where all the companies that you read about or maybe use on a daily basis, are headquartered. And I think if we go back to the core of what makes Silicon Valley so special, it's our relationship with failure.
Whereas in many places in the world, we're thinking about how we can minimise risk? How can we make sure we take the safe path?
In the Silicon Valley Bay Area, not only do we encourage people to take risks, we actually reward them to take risks.
Alek Budak. Director, BHGAP & Social Entrepreneur. Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley
One of the first things that students tell as they arrive at Berkeley for the GETT programme is, this is an amazing place to try something and see what happens. So we love people who maybe come with a background in finance, and they've always thought about "hey maybe I have this startup idea" this is an amazing place to try it, to tap into the resources of UC Berkeley. Tap into the expertise of their faculty and give it a shot. It doesn't work out, that's fine. But what an amazing place to try.
I would describe my teaching style as very collaborative and experiential. The things that I'm teaching aren't things you just learn about in a textbook, when we talk about creativity or courage or humility. One thing I'm very proud about with Berkeley Haas, is that we define ourselves and stand out from other business schools based on our culture. We have four defining leadership principles, and we lead with these and everything that we do. One of these values is beyond yourself. So for the moment students set foot on campus they get a feeling that this business school isn't your traditional business school, it's not just about profit maximisation. One of the values of the school is to humbly serve others, to make a positive impact on others.
For me, the future of business is one that's purpose driven and responsibility-focused. As more and more people of our generation are stepping into the workforce, we're looking for more out of our jobs and out of the society that we're gonna lead, we want to be serving others and making a positive impact and I see more and more leaders here at Berkley Haas and get who want that in their careers. At the same time, we're seeing businesses have more and more of a responsibility to serve everyone in society, not just the key stakeholders. And in Berkeley Haas is at the forefront of creating these leaders, who see business as playing a role in shaping and helping move society forward.
And so from growing up here, in the Silicon Valley Bay Area to my experience working and serving in India, I bring all of that - my passion of creating more social entrepreneurs and more changemakers here at UC Berkeley. We can't know exactly what the future will bring, whether that's blockchain, artificial intelligence or some new technology that hasn't even been invented yet. So our goal isn't just to train students on what's next in the next couple of years, but to train them for their entire career to be the leaders and innovators who question the status quo. Who are ready and able to bring together different disciplines, to think about what that future is, and not just think about it but be people who create the future.
What is it like in Seoul? (2/2) - GETT Programme | EDHEC Business School
I think one of the biggest challenges for any society or any company, is this protectionism that a lot of countries are going for in that path. Nationalism, protecting within one's border. This is kind of discouraging for trade, interflow of ideas. I think that's something to be concerned about.
[Eric Shih. Vice Dean for Faculty & Research. SKK Graduate School of Business. Sungkyunkwan University.]
Business, technology, these are borderless concepts. GETT programme is the antithesis of this close-mindedness. Look, you're bringing a bunch of international students, having them through the training in three different countries. Expose them to different contexts, a different way of doing business. Open their mind, open their horizon, install in them the value and importance of this global trade, of this global concept and global mindfulness. I think, if nothing else, this will stay with them, the experience and the knowledge they gain. That will allow them to be adaptive no matter where they go. And that going forward, that will allow you to be a better manager, a better global citizen.
if you look at the global problem that we currently face as a society... There is no way to get around it, except through technology. Going forward, there's a new technology that will help us address a lot of these issues. Whether we talk about global climate change, hunger or limited resources... without technology we cannot solve these problems.
Every framework that I teach in class, every definition, every concept... Most of the time within three month of walking out of this classroom, you won't remember a thing. So my intention in the classroom is not to teach them memory. I always tell them "it is more important for you to think. If you're able to develop a thinking skill, a strategy to approach problems, those tend to be more long-lasting. That even though you don't remember the framework, that strategy will stay with you." At some level you can look at your students and say "well, somebody places their faith in us. To train them, to work with them." So for me, seeing how well my students develop over the years, is very meaningful. The biggest joy I get is, when they return to see me after a couple years. It seemed that their career had taken off. They're successful and it's rewarding to say that, you know, I have a very small part to play in that. I ask my students to be open-minded, be flexible, don't be trapped in a particular mindset. You're in Korea, this is not your country, but explore. See how the cultural differences can apply to your own work. See what you bring to the table, and what contribution you can make into a foreign society.
Three continents is more than two, which is more than one. But at the end of the day, there is a diversity of experience that you have. Every business, especially senior leadership, needs to have a diverse global experience. You have that built-in right in this programme.

Semester 1: EDHEC BUSINESS SCHOOL
The primary objective of this course is to help you answer some of the strategic questions that are important to companies and organisations. What business do we want to be in? How do we compete for resources and create value? How do we best achieve and assess performance? Which analytical tools and concepts should we use? The course is largely tutorial-based, with some lectures, to encourage interactivity and student participation. We will work on case studies in relatively small groups. Each analytical tool and concept will be introduced in the context of real-world business situations.
The aim of this course is to provide you with a solid grounding in the principles of corporate finance (capital budgeting, project financing costs and capital structure). You will learn to calculate the cash flows and returns of a project, to understand the relationship between the risk of and return on financial assets, to estimate the cost of equity and the weighted average cost of capital of a firm and to understand the pros and cons of debt versus equity financing.
This course will set out a conceptual framework that will help you to understand how businesses generate value and how this value is captured in financial statements. Financial statements are of paramount importance to investors and creditors and key to the decision-making of managers, consultants, auditors, analysts and regulators.
You will learn to determine wealth creation, to calculate levels of investment in working capital, capital expenditure, company financing and leverage and to estimate profitability. The course will teach you how financial-statement analysis can reduce uncertainty and increase confidence in business decisions.
A company’s human resources are crucial to organisational success. So, how can we implement people-management practices that facilitate both individual and organisational effectiveness? This course will provide you with solid, evidence-based, actionable knowledge on human resource management.
You will learn about theoretical concepts and frameworks to help you diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of HR policies and identify ways in which these can be applied in organisations to make them more productive. The course will give you a better understanding of some of the essential aspects of working in diverse groups, including team effectiveness, managing diversity, handling conflict and negotiation skills.
The overall objective of this course is to help you understand the main challenges facing companies seeking to market technologically innovative products and/or services in today’s increasingly digitalised and globalised economy and how they can overcome them.
You will be required to demonstrate your ability to analyse and solve complex problems, to generate plausible solutions in cross-national contexts and to present them in a clear and convincing manner.
Big data and data analytics are the foundation of any successful business. Getting the technology right can be challenging but building the right knowledge and skills to undertake big data can be even harder.
This course will equip you with the capabilities you need to understand how big data and business analytics can help companies boost their performance and operations. It will also enable you to solve business problems by using business analytics techniques.
This course introduces you to the major science and technology milestones of the 19th and 20th centuries and helps you to understand how history is intrinsically linked to the dynamics of innovation today.
It’s not easy being green, but it pays to make the effort. Recent research suggests that, about a decade from now, as much as 10% of the world’s gross domestic product could be earned in making the economy more sustainable. Business growth has contributed substantially to increased prosperity around the world and virtually everybody has benefited from this. In recent decades, we have come to realise that this prosperity is increasingly unequally distributed and that growth as we know it is running into limitations set by our natural environment. If businesses are to grow in the future, they will have to find ways to do so while decreasing inequality and maintaining a liveable natural environment. Meeting expectations as to the environmental and societal performances of corporations makes business sense, and this means seeing corporate social responsibility in a new light.
This course aims to imbue you with a mindset that allows you to assess sustainable development opportunities in a business setting, articulate an informed and contemporary view on what corporate social responsibility is, understand the logic investors use in assessing corporate sustainability and develop new sustainable business models.
Our foreign-language courses are designed to help you better understand how French and Korean are used in everyday life and in business situations. These modules will enable you to read and understand written material on a range of everyday topics, teach you appropriate behaviour and expressions for business use, and help you to summarise information and size up relationships in business situations.
Managing such high risks requires precise knowledge of the criminal and terrorist actors that threaten companies, as well as the techniques they use, in order to develop appropriate risk management solutions. Acquiring and disseminating this rare knowledge of what are now strategic risks to companies: this is what the EDHEC Chair in Criminal Risk Management does every day.
Semester 2: SKK GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS*
This course introduces you to some of the key topics of brand equity management. It gives you an insight into the formulation and implementation of brand-equity strategies, from the importance of building brand awareness to how to extend, capitalise on, safeguard and grow a brand’s perception and value. The primary emphasis will be on brand, rather than marketing, management.
On this course, you will explore digital marketing strategy, implementation and execution for business-to-business and business-to-consumer brands and gain a detailed understanding of digital channels and platforms. On completing the course, you will have comprehensive knowledge and experience of how to develop an integrated digital marketing strategy, from formulation to implementation.
This course will provide you with an introduction to international finance. You will start off by examining currency systems and trade between countries. You will then study the balance of payments and its impact on a country’s economy. Next, you will move on to understanding the functioning of currency markets, currency rates and currency derivatives. We apply this cumulative knowledge to currency risk management.
This course prepares you for a career in the financial industry. It is part of a well-rounded education that will prepare you for a career in corporate finance and investment. These days, it is difficult to imagine any corporation except the smallest that are not involved in international trade or deal with currency markets.
This course presents key conceptual and analytical frameworks for investing in equity securities. Topics include an overview of the security markets, equity valuation, investment strategies, performance evaluation and portfolio management for individuals and institutions. International equity investing also will be analysed in a global portfolio context. You will also have the opportunity to analyse and value a publicly traded company.
In each session, you will solve a different “real-world” business problem using key predictive analytical methods. The data-science solutions will include specific statistical methodologies and algorithms, such as artificial neural networks, clustering, decision trees and natural language processing. The course does not presume a sophisticated mathematical background nor programming skills. It is designed to minimise mathematics and be as conceptual as possible. Even so, the course’s goal is not to give you a high-level overview, but a significant understanding of data science. To achieve this, you will learn how the statistical methodologies and algorithms work exactly using examples in MS Excel.
This course is well suited to aspiring managers who want to align their understanding of business and technical solutions and to lead comprehensive business solutions, including data science teams.
You will learn to read and write Hangul (the Korean alphabet), learn the basic pronunciation of Korean, understand the fundamental sentence structure of the Korean language, practice basic listening and speaking exercises and engage in everyday conversations (greetings, introducing yourself, time, date, weather, daily schedule, shopping, asking for directions and phone conversations).

You will undertake an in-depth examination of the most successful approaches for entrepreneurial companies as a function of markets and technology. Emphasis is placed on the specific requirements for creating and executing strategy in a setting of rapid technological change and limited resources.
High technology refers to products and services that are subject to technological change at a significantly faster pace than most goods in the economy. Such firms differ from the norm in certain ways. On this course, you will explore these differences.
On this course, you will explore 35 topics covering many of the principal elements of how business is affected by climate change and how changing business practices can improve (or worsen) the climate outlook.

Semester 2: SKK GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS (OTHER MBA ELECTIVES)*
Advanced competitive strategy (corporate strategy) is about generating a persistently superior performance for organisations with a specific focus on corporate strategy, organisational design and innovation.
You will learn both how to enact strategic direction and to manage a corporate strategy. This perspective will enable you to view the organisation holistically in the context of its environment and ensure its long-term health.
As global financial markets become increasingly complex, we must analyse a constant flow of information. Quantitative models built on statistical foundations and data-based programming skills are key to processing information accurately and promptly. On this course, you will learn to use R to collect and analyse data, optimise an investment portfolio and trade securities. In the first part of the course, you will practise the essential components of modern investment theory using real-life data and R programming. The course presumes no prior programming knowledge or experience. You will start by working to find the key factors in delivering investment returns and, by the end of the first half of the course, build trading signals based on data analysis using R. You will then learn about portfolio construction and optimisation and executing trades using R in an automated way. If you want to know how to programme using R, you will learn using investment examples. If you want to hone your quantitative skills in the investment area, this is a first step. If you just want to use data analysis for your own personal investments, this course will give you the tools to start.
This course covers topics related to cost analysis and management control. You will learn about budgeting, the theory and practice of cost allocation, absorption and variable costing systems, standard costs and variance analysis, performance evaluation and incentive contracts. If time permits, you will explore in depth the design of management incentive contracts to influence management decisions and how to reduce potential conflicts of interest arising from moral hazard and asymmetric information problems.
The objective of this course is to introduce you to the application of derivative securities in equity, interest-rate and foreign-currency markets in the context of risk management.
You will learn how to identify and measure financial risks and why financial risks should be managed. You will explore the use of traditional tools, such as forwards, futures, options and swaps, along with innovative over-the-counter derivative securities.
On this course, you will learn the basic concepts of creating shared value (CSV) by understanding the role of business in society. The CSV approach sees social issues as a source of business opportunity and competitive advantage for business, rather than a social obligation or cost of doing business. As a business strategy, it incorporates a social purpose into core competitive strategy.
You will learn about the power of companies of all sizes, especially multinationals, to gain a competitive advantage by achieving social impact on a large scale.
The main objective of this course is to give you a more rigorous understanding of the cornerstones of corporate financial strategy, building on the application and practice of basic valuation techniques covered in the core curriculum.
The course walks you through how to formulate a corporate financial strategy from a managerial perspective.
Creativity and innovation are integral to an organisation’s ability to survive in today’s business environment. This course will give you a thorough understanding of how creativity and innovation can be facilitated and managed in the workplace. You will explore theoretical conceptualisations of creativity and innovation and be introduced to the best practices of successful innovators. You will learn to devise optimal ways to cultivate creative and innovative processes in your future organisations.
This course hones your Korean language skills for use in business situations.
This course will introduce you to the power of marketing analytics and their impact on decision-making.
You will become familiar with various metrics and models that allow marketers to identify problems and develop solutions to a range of marketing issues.
This course option covers the theory and process of negotiation, including strategy, contextual factors and other issues you will need to conclude the best possible deals for your organisation.
As corporate data grows exponentially, understanding the foundations of how to manage and work with large databases is an essential starting point for business analytics. This course will provide you with a solid understanding of how to use and design databases in real-world situations. You will learn the fundamentals of database management systems (DBMS) and the SQL language for data analysis. Using a robust SQL database system allows you to work with big data and access information quickly and efficiently. SQL is also an excellent adjunct to programming languages used in data science, such as R and Python.
The course will introduce you to the No-SQL database for working with large sets of distributed data. This course is for beginners who want to perform data analysis with SQL and build database design skills. More specifically, you will develop the necessary skills to build powerful databases and write SQL queries for data cleaning, transformation and storytelling. The classes will be lecture-based, with lots of hands-on exercises using real datasets that you are likely to encounter in the real world.
This course covers the nature and functions of the law as they pertain to the business environment, including areas such as torts, contracts and intellectual property. The emphasis will be on your ability to understand and apply the rules of business law. You will be asked to think critically, identify the legal issues and applicable laws in given assignments, analyse the facts of these situations in light of the applicable laws, determine the most likely outcomes and elaborate on lessons learned.
Prerequisites: Core foundation courses.
This course introduces you to the key concepts and language of cryptocurrencies and blockchain. It aims to give you an understanding of the possibilities and limitations of the technologies, as well as insights into related topics of importance to organisations in future.
Semester 5-Semester 6: BERKELEY-HAAS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS*
The following courses have been selected by EDHEC and UC Berkeley to fit the GETT curriculum. You can select two courses per semester.
This course offers you a taste of what it’s really like to start a business. In addition to learning about key foundational entrepreneurial concepts, such as idea generation and evaluation, customer and product development, creating a business model, fundraising, marketing, and scaling up and exiting a business, you will also hear from successful entrepreneurs who will share their perspectives and best practices.
You will apply core concepts by working in teams to evaluate and select a venture idea that you will then develop over the course of the semester.
Blockchain is one of the most significant technologies to impact technology and business in many years. It is also one of the most interdisciplinary areas, bringing together new questions and opportunities at the intersection of technology, business and law. This course embraces this interdisciplinary nature.
We will give you an overview of the technology behind blockchain and you will explore current and potential real-world applications.
This three-module course aims to equip you with proven concepts, techniques and frameworks for assessing and formulating pricing strategies. In the first module, you will explore the economics and behavioural foundations of pricing. In the second, you will discover innovative pricing concepts, including price customisation, non-linear pricing, price matching and product line pricing. In the third, you will analyse the strengths and weaknesses of internet-based, buyer-determined pricing models.
Today’s organisations demand leaders who communicate well. Those who communicate well are far more effective leaders in their organisations and communities. Successful leadership and effective speaking both demand authentic communication. Leaders need not only communicate well but communicate persuasively. They must be able to inspire others, foster cooperation among those who work with them, advocate ideas and proposals within their organisations, and deliver the organisational message externally.
In this workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of connecting with others and presenting in today’s business environment. You will focus on authenticity, persuasion and advocacy. You will deliver a PowerPoint presentation, three speeches (both impromptu and prepared) and complete a final project.
This course will equip you with the theory and processes of negotiation as practised in a variety of settings. It is designed to be relevant to the broad spectrum of negotiation problems faced by managers and professionals.
By focusing on the behaviour of individuals, groups and organisations in the context of competitive situations, you will have the opportunity to develop negotiation skills experientially in useful analytical frameworks (in simulations and cases, for example).
If you are actively developing a business plan, this course will show you how new businesses take form and focus on their opportunities. The principle is one of "guided" entrepreneurship where, working in teams, you will undertake the challenges of building a venture.
You must be willing to discuss your project with others in the workshop, as group deliberation of the entrepreneurial challenges is a key component of the class. Over the years, up to half the ventures developed in this class have launched.
The course gives you frameworks, knowledge and approaches to formulate and implement marketing strategies to compete in the international arena. Regions and countries covered include the Americas, Europe, Japan, China, India, Russia, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
You will learn about global versus local advertising, international pricing strategies, selecting and managing strategic international alliances and distribution channels, managing international brands and product lines through the product lifecycle, international retailing, and international marketing organisation and control.
The vast proliferation of data, combined with increasing technological advances and massive changes in regulation, are transforming the competitive landscape of various industries. On this course, you will learn how these forces are driving changes in finance and accounting and how to make sense of their future implications. You will be exposed to the exciting intersection of technology, finance and accounting while emphasising the role of data and data analytics. In each of these areas, you will start by exploring the sector and its traditional incumbents. You will then examine use cases and strategies for incoming technology-based players, with an emphasis on the role that data analytics and data can play.
The objective of this course is to understand how tech entrepreneurs can best develop and manage intellectual property (IP) assets and integrate them into a successful business. The course will teach you the different types of IP (copyright, trademark, patents, and trade secrets) and discuss their uses in technology companies.
You will also learn best practices for developing, protecting, licensing and enforcing IP rights, as well as best practices in avoiding infringement, patent insurance and patent pool consortia. You will also explore the pros and cons of using open-source software and how angel and venture capital investors view IP. The course will leverage case studies, current events, and industry experts to provide you with a practical, working knowledge of the use of IP assets as part of a successful business strategy.
How can you motivate employees to go beyond the call of duty to get the job done? How can you be sure that your decisions are not biassed? What influence tactics can you use when you do not have the formal authority to tell someone what to do? This course will add to your understanding of life in complex organisations by covering topics spanning the micro (individual level of analysis) and the macro (organisational level of analysis), and topics that integrate the two.
The world is facing major problems. Climate change, poverty, health and wellbeing, gender equality, decent work, clean water, growing inequalities and threats to democratic institutions are a few of the many interconnected sustainability challenges cited by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the face of these issues, the Nordic countries, frequently cited as global sustainability leaders, can provide inspiration. On this course, you will explore sustainability and social responsibility in the Nordic countries and consider what learnings could be applied to the US context. You will also consider the role that Nordic culture and policy play in sustainability practices and business performance ‒ as well as society as a whole. You will consider the very nature of capitalism and compare and contrast “Nordic capitalism” with “American capitalism” while exploring the sustainability ramifications of the different approaches. In this way, you will consider how we can build resilient and sustainable societies.
The purpose of this course is to understand the theory and processes of negotiation as practised in a variety of settings. It is designed to be relevant to the broad spectrum of negotiation problems you will face as a manager or professional.
By focusing on the behaviour of individuals, groups and organisations in the context of competitive situations, you will have the opportunity to develop negotiation skills experientially in useful analytical frameworks (such as simulations and cases).

How I got into EDHEC | EDHEC Business School
Speaker: Shoumi Mittra, Indian. MiM Financial Economic student
For me, the most unique thing about the admission process was the fact that it wasn't a black box like most of the other admissions processes that I had been through before. Right from step one till the point that I was actually arriving in Nice. I had so much support not only from the EDHEC admissions team but also from the EDHEC Alumni and all the other students that EDHEC made sure I was connected to.
Speaker: Jean Thélémaque, American. MSc in International Accounting & Finance student.
I would say for any student that's looking to travel abroad, financing is extremely important. And for me personally, I actually hit a lot of roadblocks when seeking to obtain financial aid, and a process that was supposed to take two weeks ended up actually taking two months. When I actually got to EDHEC, the first thing I did was contact the admissions team, and they took out this very long rigorous process and turned it into two days. So it is really truly invaluable to have an admissions team that's really putting their best foot forward to help you with whatever you're looking to do.
Speaker: Shoumi Mittra
I was a lucky recipient of the Eiffel scholarship and I think part of the reason that I got it was because of the support that the EDHEC admissions team actually gave me throughout the application process.
I remember that the India admissions officer looked at my profile and said that I could potentially be eligible for this scholarship, and right from the beginning, he told me about the deadlines, he told me about the documents, to the point where I actually got the scholarship. And he took out the effort to call me up and say "hey you got the scholarship" and he seemed as excited as I was that I got the scholarship. It really showed me that EDHEC has a human touch and that it really cares about its students.
Speaker: Jean Thélémaque
For me the process was very real and it was very genuine because I remember, when I actually first met with the admissions manager, every answer and every interaction was very genuine. It was very sincere and I can honestly tell that the admissions team had my best interests at heart. So for me, it was that human factor that was there, and the transparency that really made the experience that much better for me.
Speaker: Shoumi Mittra
The first time I experienced EDHEC was when the EDHEC India admissions officer actually came onto my campus in Mumbai, and that was such a rare occurrence. I had actually never seen a French Business School or a French University come to my campus and that itself impressed me and it gave me that motivation to apply for the school.

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 outdoor 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.
