Leadership development

EDHEC Global MBA’s aim is to educate Principled Leaders. Principled leaders not only inspire and empower people; they also make decisions framed by clear core values. They are consistent in their decisions and take responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Global MBA participants are challenged to grow their leadership skills through a virtuous learning cycle that mixes theory, action, learning and self-reflection.

The fundamentals of principled leadership

The programme begins with a day-long outing of team-based activities, a very first opportunity to reflect on leadership. Then, through "Managing Human Capital with Coaching", "Leading People and Organisations" and "Building High Performance Teams" courses, MBA participants discover how leaders engage people towards shared goals. Finally, courses such as "Philosophy", "International Business Law" and "Criminal Risks Management" allow participants to question the set of values that guide their decisions and actions.

IMPROVING LEADERSHIP THROUGH ACTION

Leadership is developed through practice and experimentation. Teamwork therefore lies at the core of the programme. Collective assignments (from case studies to consulting and entrepreneurship projects) invite MBA participants to put their leadership skills to test. Every participant receives personalised, constructive feedback on their teamwork and leadership abilities. They get (and give) this feedback from different angles, e.g. small teams they work with throughout the MBA program as well as from their individual career coach. 

LEARNING FROM THE NETWORK

Leadership can also be learnt by emulating inspiring leaders. Throughout the programme, Alumni Spotlights, Conferences, Global Learning Expeditions, Treks and company visits offer opportunities to meet inspiring managers and executives. Also, with our diverse student body and an average of eight years of professional experience, fellow participants are definitely an invaluable source of learning and exchange.

SELF-REFLECTION & CONTINUOUS FEEDBACK

Various tests as well as our unique CareerSMART programme help participants to identify their leadership profile and their areas for improvement. Throughout the programme, we have put peer and self evaluations into place to provide participants with formal 360° feedback. Based on these outcomes we then have Team Work Reviews which consist of collective coaching involving facilitated group sessions. We want to increase the awareness of our students in regard to how to best  perform in a team, whether as a leader or as a member and provide valuable insights as to how participants are perceived by others.

My MBA Experience

The diversity of the program has helped me learn about doing business with other cultures. My network has grown and I have been put in contact with companies in Europe. There’s no doubt that EDHEC MBA will propel my career to the next level.

Lauren Van Horn, MBA ‘17, USA

We had some wonderful guest lectures from some amazing companies including Google, Amadeus and Amazon. And, during my finance track, the managing partner of Astarte Capital Partners ran a module for the course. We got talking about my background and experience and then he offered me a summer internship!
