“ For more than 10 years, EDHEC Business School has been pursuing an active policy of dynamic research based on 11 research centres, chairs and initiatives and an academic community represented by more than 170 world-class professors and researchers, a number that has increased by more than 25% over the last 5 years. Allocating more than 20% of its annual resources to research, EDHEC sets itself apart by its historical “Make an impact” positioning and the development of distinctive fields of excellence. These fields include finance, embodied by EDHEC-Risk Institute and its spin-off companies – Scientific Beta and EDHECinfra – whose research results and products in the area of the financial risk management are used by the world's leading financial institutions. In addition, the research activity also permeates the programmes delivered to students with innovative knowledge, in line with the needs of businesses. Indeed, we believe that research is only useful if it is made accessible to our students, if it applies to the professional world and if it feeds public debate. This is why, in support of a dissemination strategy that involves constantly adapting the knowledge we produce to the environment for which it is intended, we have created EDHEC Vox. This initiative aims to share and promote the knowledge, analysis and views of EDHEC "experts" – researchers, professors, top-executives, graduates, executive education students. EDHEC Business School is now the continental European school whose research is most often cited in the five largest international business press publications, namely the Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal (Europe and Asia), The Economist and Business Week.
