The French Riviera is a truly international metropolis with an unbeatable quality of life. 160 nationalities live and work on the Côte d'Azur (as the region is known to the locals), resulting in a wealth of multilingual services and English being an accepted language in most places. One person out of eight is of international origin, you will feel quickly at home!
300 days of sunshine a year, 100 km of beaches, world-class ski resorts and 125 sporting disciplines on offer makes the French Riviera an exciting place to spend the odd moments of free time while studying for your MBA. Everything is close on the Riviera but for those who wish to travel, the international airport is just minutes from campus and you can fly directly to all main European business destinations in under 2 hours.
Thanks to the success of the 1000 company-strong technology park in neighbouring Sophia Antipolis, Europe's largest cluster of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) companies, a total of 65,000 jobs have been created on the French Riviera in the past 10 years. 95% of foreign companies are high-growth, blue chips and multinationals in the region such as Accenture, Air France, Thales Alenia Space, Algovital, Amadeus, Cisco, France Telecom Orange, Galderma, IBM, Infineon Technologies, Hewlitt Packard, Oracle, Philips, Polycom, SAP, Siemens, Texas Instruments and Toyota.
An increasing number of students are bringing their family to Nice to share this exciting 10-month experience. Your partner is welcome to attend one of the EDHEC French courses, and your children can be enrolled in one of the many international schools in the area. This option offers your whole family complete peace of mind.
