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

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





There are a range of other external scholarships and sources of financial aid for which Global MBA candidates may be eligible. This includes scholarships available within your home country or via the French embassy. Check the Campus France website for your country.

The FONGECIF is also available to candidates who work in France but this has become increasingly difficult to obtain in recent years




The vast majority of candidates finance their MBA with a bank loan secured in their home country. International students are not allowed to apply for a bank loan in France without a French guarantor under French banking law.
EDHEC students can apply for a Prodigy Finance educational loan. Visit their website here.
