Learning experience

The EDHEC learning experience

Academic excellence

Every year about 40 speakers, professors and professionals from over 15 different nationalities contribute to the EDHEC Global MBA programme and help make it a life-changing experience.

They are international experts in their domains, boasting both academic and business achievements. Each contributes with their knowledge and experience, bringing the latest techniques and trends to the classroom, and pushing participants to develop their full potential.


A focus on principled leadership

When leaders make consistent decisions framed by clear values, acting courageously and taking responsibility for the consequences of their actions, they not only inspire and empower people, but fundamentally contribute to making a positive impact on the world.

Principled leadership is a core part of the EDHEC Global MBA programme. Through a combination of specifically designed classes and activities we help you leverage your potential as a principled leader.


Learning through action

At EDHEC, we believe that action and experimentation foster learning. Throughout the programme, you’ll be putting theory into practice, using your knowledge and skills in case studies, business simulations and a 2-month MBA project.

Action learning is also essential for developing leadership skills. You’ll be able to hone your teamwork and leadership skills through collective assignments, and through regular 360 degree feedback sessions.


Diversity gives us strength

Diversity can be a powerful and inspiring source of learning, and we consider it to be an essential part of the Global MBA. At EDHEC, you’ll be collaborating with and learning from people with diverse professional experiences, backgrounds, age groups, genders, nationalities and cultural heritages.

These differences give us strength, and teach us how to interact successfully and respectfully in the diverse context of business today. In this globalised world, having a good command of multicultural and international skills is crucial to success, and that’s strongly reflected and integrated into the Global MBA programme.


An enriching human experience

Acquiring intellectual and technical knowledge is only part of the learning process. Passion and people are important, too. EDHEC’s Global MBA is designed with this in mind, and we don’t underestimate how much human interactions can help you grow in your career.

Working together, challenging each other, networking, meeting inspiring people and travelling are all an integral part of the programme. We hope that these social and emotional experiences might contribute to making it one of the best years of your career.


Shape your future

Every experience in the programme, whether individual or collective, encourages you to reach higher and further than you thought possible before. It is designed to bolster both personal and career turnarounds, empowering people to realise their dreams.

The EDHEC Global MBA can help career progression, but it can also be the launchpad to changing profession, sector, country — or sometimes all three. You may leave having launched your own business, having taken a significant step up in your career, or simply with a clear and concrete vision of where you’re heading to next.

“For over a century, EDHEC has been training managers that transform the world. Steadfast in our mission to be of service to business and society, EDHEC is recognised through a Triple Accreditation by AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS. Offering cutting-edge business education, EDHEC Global MBA combines the tradition of excellence of a French Grande Ecole with the exceptional diversity of a well established international programme."
