Disability

Committed to the development of diversity and as part of its involvement in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), EDHEC provides support and mobility solutions for all students with disabilities.

EDHEC supports disabled students throughout their time at the school

 

EDHEC wants to go further than the requirements of France’s Handicap Act of 2005. We are eager to promote understanding of the problems encountered by people with disabilities, not only among students, but also among the teaching faculty and EDHEC staff.

 

For EDHEC staff:

Staff members are sensitised to the needs and problems linked to student handicap.

If a professor wishes to provide their support to a student or has questions regarding a support methodology, they can contact the campus handicap officer to discuss the matter.

 

For students:

At the start of every year, the handicap officer receives all students who have requested compensatory measures for their handicap. The handicap officer also facilitates links with the School’s various services to provide you with the best support during your time as a student: Career Center, Hub, Academic Affairs, etc.

 

  • Each year, through the Handi Day event, students experience first-hand the issues related to disability. On this occasion, EDHEC invites companies to present the resources they have put in place to raise awareness, accommodate and support people with disabilities.
  • Whether it is through community projects or during the first-year BBA SIP projects, many are mobilising for diversity by including disability as a theme in their assignments.
  • The EDHEC Diversity & Inclusion Chair, headed by Hager Jemel, Head of the Pre-Master's programme, carries out awareness-raising and research activities to provide better support for students and companies and strengthens the school's commitment to the subject of disability.

 

Because diversity is not an obstacle to competence.

Accessibility and contacts

Frequently asked Questions:

If you are on the Lille campus:

Your disability advisor invites you to contact the CPSU, the Centre de Santé de La Catho to which EDHEC is attached (03.28.04.02.40)

If you are on the Nice campus: 

The Hub will provide you with the list of doctors approved by the MDPH 06 to obtain a recommendation for support arrangements. The Hub and the disability advisor will liaise for your follow-up.

It all depends on the specific needs of the disability.

 

In accordance with the law of 2005, the request for support arrangements is a right, with requests being examined on a case-by-case basis and within a reasonable framework. Requests are examined so as to decide whether arrangements can be put into place by our academic affairs teams.
