A clear tuition fee structure, a transparent scholarship policy and a personal admissions advisor mean that you can focus on your application and then on your studies without distractions or uncertainties.

 

A human touch for a tailored programme

 

The culture at EDHEC’s Global MBA is an important part of the experience, and we believe it’s essential to have a personal admissions process to maintain it. Our admissions team considers every candidate carefully, making sure that you’re a good match for the programme, and that the programme is the right fit for you, too.

The EDHEC Global MBA application process

 

We aim to keep the application process simple so that you can focus on what’s important — telling us why you’re a great fit for the EDHEC Global MBA. You’ll be accompanied all the way through the process by a designated admissions manager who can help make sure everything’s in order.

Before you start…

 

It’s always good to know what a school is looking for when preparing your application. We believe that a transparent process saves time and energy for both our applicants and our team, so here are the main questions that we consider above all:

  • What kind of experience are you seeking, and what are your ambitions?
  • How do your profile and experience contribute to the diversity of your future cohort?
  • What value are you bringing to your classmates’ experience?
  • Does the school and programme match your own values? 

Stay ahead of the deadlines

EU or EEA Nationals:

Applications must be received before June 30th.

Outside EEA:

Applications must be received before May 31st. This deadline may be extended upon request to accommodate visa processing time.

Get ready for Nice

Before filling out the detailed admission form, why not start with a quick profile check? All you need is your CV and some basic information, and one of our admissions managers will contact you directly to discuss your profile and qualifications, and make sure you’re on the right track. They’ll also advise you on which scholarship you’re eligible for, so you’ll immediately know what budget you’re looking at.

 

Submit Profile

You’ll start by creating your EDHEC account so that all the information you enter is saved. This means that if you’re missing anything, you can always come back to complete your application later. A member of our Admissions team will be notified when you get started, and follow up with you if you need any help or advice during the process. The application includes official documents and 2 referrals.

 

When you’re ready to submit your official application, you’ll be asked to pay the 150€ application fee online. Once you’ve paid, you’ll be able to send the application through to our team to start the admissions process.

 

Create your account & Start your application

If your application is accepted, then you’ll be invited to an interview. Depending on what works best for you, the interview can be done over Skype, Teams, by phone, or in person on our campus in Nice. You will also have a short interview with one of our Alumni Attachés – this way you can speak to someone who has been through the programme.

 

The first part of the interview is a conversation with one of our admissions managers, and lasts about 45 minutes to an hour. In the second part of the process, we’ll ask you to submit a video questionnaire of you answering a series of surprise questions. You’ll have two minutes to answer each question.

 

Complete Admissions Guide

At the end of each month, the Selections Committee (which includes the Head of Admissions and the Programme Director) will personally assess your entire application to determine your acceptance to the programme. You’ll be informed of the decision immediately after this meeting.

 

Since we have a rolling admissions policy, the earlier you apply, the sooner you’ll know if you’re accepted. If you’re not accepted, your admissions manager will make sure to explain what might be missing. Depending on the details, if it’s experience or qualifications then you may be encouraged to apply again once you’re at the right level.

 

Start your application

You’ll already know if you’re eligible for a scholarship once you’ve spoken to your admissions manager after the first step, submitting your basic profile. We also include accommodation costs for your global business trips within the fees, so you’ll know exactly what you need to budget for.

 

Save more by having your first instalment ready when you’ve finished your interviews. We offer a 5% Prompt Payment Reduction if you pay your first instalment of fees within three weeks of acceptance. This is valid for both firm and conditional offers.

 

Global MBA tuition fees

Once your first instalment has been paid, it will be time to start getting ready to move to Nice. The earlier the better, since you’ll need to plan for your living arrangements and budget well in advance in order to have peace of mind and focus on your MBA once you get there.

 

Our International Student Office will help you prepare your move and all the paperwork you may need.

 

Tips & Next Steps

Apply now, provide your GMAT/GRE score later

 

In some cases, if you haven’t got your final score yet, you can request to go through the usual application process and aim for a conditional offer. Once your GMAT / GRE score is approved your file can be firmly accepted.

 

We recommend that you pass the test as early as possible, so that you have time to re-take it if you need a higher score for acceptance or to get a score-based scholarship.
