[Valentin Lenz. MSc in International Accounting & Finance. Germany]


I think that EDHEC has  a different approach from what I knew before. 
Before I studied in the U.S. That was more a theoretical approach, here at EDHEC it's very practical. We do a lot of case studies in class, and also the professors, sometimes, come from the profession and are either former professionals or are still working in the world.  So you get a different view on what is actually happening out there. They encourage you to really think critically.  Here at EDHEC, it's very international.  You have people from different backgrounds, different cultures. 
So by working with them, you always get different perspectives. There's not one right way or wrong way to look at the world. There are always different views. So we kind of have to mitigate what perspective you're trying to take.

The programme lasts 18 months in total – one year of academic courses, followed by a 4-6-month professional internship or work experience.
