With its short time frame and a tuition at 41 000€, it is no wonder the EDHEC Global MBA is among the top 3 programmes in terms of value for money. What’s more, EDHEC’s transparent scholarship policy offers different scholarships based on merit and excellence - every qualifying student gets a scholarship with a waiver in tuition fee - and provides valuable financial assistance to candidates.

Javier Garcia Royo EDHEC Global MBA 2016 was a strategy consultant at Accenture based in Madrid and involved in several international projects (Milan, London, Chicago and Mexico), and “wanted to take a year off from work, broaden his perspectives and explore alternative career paths internationally. I spent considerable time researching about the quality of education, potential employers, track specialties, mix of international students, location and value for money, and decided on EDHEC — the choice that was going to maximise my time and money invested.”
Mission accomplished: In the course of the EDHEC Global MBA programme, Javier visited Singapore, met chief executive officers, inspiring entrepreneurs, delivered a project on expansion strategy for a Monaco client in Tanzania, East Africa, and did his MBA internship in business strategy at Nike Football in the Netherlands. He is currently considering several offers for his post MBA career in the sports retail, travel and consulting industries.
For Mark Battcock, native of Canada and EDHEC Global MBA 2012, “I appreciated the fact that the school had high-marks for international diversity and that it ranked well for investment value. The 10-month duration of the programme also ensures that you’re not out of the job market for too long and the scholarship policies were very clear and fair, with the GMAT score being the main factor.” Mark is currently Market and Business Analyst at Calderys*, Paris, France: "EDHEC MBA delivered what I was looking for: a gateway to Europe and an international experience that now serves me to work with people around the globe.” It was through the EDHEC MBA alumni network that he found his internship which led to this position. He now takes his role of alumni to heart, also optimising his return on investment: each year his company offers consulting projects for EDHEC students.
