How to apply ?

We are looking for ambitious professionals, with strong international awareness. When we assess your application, over and above the admissions criteria, we consider three questions:

  • Do you have a strong potential for progress and transformation?
  • How will you contribute to class diversity?
  • How will you foster your classmates' learning experience?

 

Application deadlines :

Applications must be received before June 30th for September intake and November 15th for January intake. Application deadlines may be extended upon request depending on visa processing time.

Initiate and complete your application

When you initiate your online application, the Admissions team is alerted and you will receive an email asking you to contact the MBA Admissions Office. One person from the team will follow you through the whole process and help if needed. You can upload all your application documents except for your reference letters. These must come from your referee directly (professional email or hard copy).

The Application fee is € 150. Please note that your application cannot be processed before the application fee has been paid online.

3

Interview

Your online application will be processed by the admissions team who will forward selected files for interview. This can be done by telephone, Skype or on-campus.

4

Selection

Following the interview, successful applications will be forwarded to the next monthly selection committee for decision. You are informed of the decision by email directly after the selection committee meeting taking place at the end of each month. EDHEC has a rolling admissions policy, the earlier you apply, the sooner you know the decision.

It is possible to apply without a GMAT or GRE score and send it at a later date.

In this way you can aim for a conditional offer - this means the Selection Committee might approve your general profile conditionally and then upon reception of a strong GMAT score, your offer will be confirmed. Please note that we do not offer GMAT waivers, all applicants must complete the GMAT test in order to receive a confirmed offer.

Prompt Payment Reduction

The Admissions Office offers a 5% reduction in fees for Prompt Payment or can offer an 8% Fast Fair Reduction (conditions apply). The Prompt Payment Reduction is granted if you have successfully completed the admissions process, have been accepted into the programme and accepted your place by making a first payment within two weeks. Deadlines apply.
The Prompt Payment Reduction is also applicable to conditional offers.

My MBA Experience

EDHEC beat other programs in almost every area, and was also offering two study trips abroad to Cape Town and San Francisco. I was also amazed with how professional and fast to respond to any inquiries the EDHEC recruitment team was. It was a personalized approach, along with a good value-to-money ratio that finally made me choose EDHEC.

Kateryna Myronenko, MBA ‘17, Ukraine

I chose EDHEC because it checked all the boxes. The school has a solid academic reputation, the MBA student body is diverse, and the tuition fee and scholarship structure is straightforward.

FAQ

Can I get a higher scholarship ?

There is no flexibility in the EDHEC Global MBA scholarship policy, however you can increase your scholarship in line with our scholarship policy.

Examples

1) Secure your 1st Nationality Scholarship and upgrade to a GMAT scholarship later

If you don’t yet have GMAT, you can at least secure a 1st Nationality scholarship if you aim for a conditional offer and in turn enrol by paying the first instalment. If you are one of the first three of each nationality, the 20% scholarship will be granted automatically. You then have until 30th June (for September intake) or 30th November (for January intake) to send your GMAT score and secure a firm offer. If your score permits, your scholarship will be upgraded automatically according to the corresponding GMAT category. If your GMAT is considered unacceptable for entry by the selection committee, your first payment will be refunded in full.

2) Upgrade from a Merit Scholarship to a Premium or Excellence Scholarship

Even if you already have a GMAT score and a firm offer, you can decide to re-sit the up until the day before the start of term and aim to increase your scholarship according to your new GMAT score. If your GMAT score drops, your highest score will be retained. In this way, you can upgrade from a Merit to a Premium or Excellence Scholarship.

Can I accumulate scholarships ?

No. Only one can be granted which will be the most favorable  for the candidate. Only the prompt payment reduction can be accumulated with any scholarship in the list.
