French Riviera Lifestyle

FOR A UNIQUE MBA EXPERIENCE

EDHEC's Nice campus is located in the heart of the French Riviera - one of the world's most prestigious locations and a top destinations for international expatriates.

 

EDHEC's campus in the city of Nice is situated on the famous Promenade des Anglais and its rooftop decks overlook the glamorous Mediterranean Sea, conveniently located walking distance from Nice international airport and about 6 km from downtown, next to the business area of Arenas.

The existing on-campus facilities were recently enhanced with more student common rooms, a refectory, a restaurant, a learning centre, improved student association premises, more IT rooms and new amphitheatres. A weights room and fitness centre offering four classes per day of keep-fit instruction such as pilates, zumba, step, body bar and stretching have also been constructed to add to the students' hub.

 

FRENCH RIVIERA LIFE

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, Arkopharma, Cisco, Orange, Galderma, IBM, Infineon Technologies, Oracle, Philips, Polycom, SAP, Siemens, Toyota and Virbac.

Make an Impact

At EDHEC, I was able to meet and share an MBA experience with people from all over the world. We had almost 40 different nationalities in the class who were all willing to share their knowledge—that really opened my eyes to different cultures and ways of thinking.
