Talents Prépas

Tutoring sessions

Days of immersion



Talents Prépas is an 8-month individualised support programme adapted to the pace of the preparatory classes, designed to complement preparation for the competitive entrance exams and more specifically the oral entrance exams for French business schools, through tutorials, introductory lectures and a bootcamp on the Lille campus.


Combining distance learning and classroom sessions, this programme welcomes up to 50 scholarship students in their second year of preparatory classes who wish to enter EDHEC via the Banque Commune d'Epreuves (BCE) competitive entrance exam.

The Talents Prépas programme offers:

  • Invitations to EDHEC Business School events and online conferences

  • A tutoring programme with EDHEC students to help you refine your project and plan your future at EDHEC

  • Practical workshops to prepare for the oral exams

  • A 2-day Bootcamp to discover the Lille campus, meet the students and do a mock oral in real conditions in front of a jury

  • A subscription to Brief.me to receive the best of daily news

The Talents Prépas scheme will support, from the preparatory class, the success of students from more modest backgrounds, and thus contribute to breaking a certain form of social determinism. Based on the principle of tutoring, Talents Prépas appeals to the values of solidarity and mutual aid which are at the heart of our DNA, and today complements an ambitious social policy carried by the EDHEC4All system.

Anne Zuccarelli

Director of Student Experience at EDHEC Business School, who initiated the programme

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to take part in your programme. It's a real boost to self-confidence that you're offering for students in preparatory classes. I hope that the next generation will feel the same.


Class of 2022-2023

Thank you very much for the programme. It's helped me to get through the pre-prepa better by focusing on the post-prepa from the start of the year. It's also been a practical way of not neglecting my motivation orals!


Class of 2022-2023

The advice my tutor gave me was very useful and precise. It's always interesting to have the point of view of someone who's already been through the competition.


Class of 2021-2022

I'm very happy to have taken part in this programme because it really made me want to join EDHEC, whereas before I wasn't particularly attached to it.


Class of 2021-2022

This programme allows me to project myself into the school, which is even more motivating.
