Created by and for entrepreneurs,
Operating from campuses in Lille, Nice, Paris, London and Singapore, EDHEC is one of the top 15 European business schools, ranked 1st worldwide for its Master in Finance. Fully international and directly connected to the business world, EDHEC is a school for business, rather than a business school, where excellence in teaching and research focuses on innovation to stimulate entrepreneurship and creativity. For business from birth and dedicated to business, EDHEC makes entrepreneurs for life, able to remodel or create successful businesses wherever they work.
EDHEC functions as a genuine laboratory of ideas and produces innovative solutions valued by businesses. The School’s teaching philosophy, inspired by its award-winning research activities, focuses on “learning by doing”.
A Mindset That Sets Us Apart
Created by and for entrepreneurs, EDHEC has embodied the fundamental values of business for over a century.
Our aim is to pass on the keys to business success to new generations of managers and entrepreneurs, spreading the conviction that companies can have a positive impact on the economy and on society as a whole.
Keen to protect its independence in action for the last 110 years, EDHEC relies on its own resources to fund and guide its development. It also exercises full autonomy in its academic and scientific strategy.
Since its establishment in 1906, EDHEC has built its reputation on pragmatism and a teaching approach focused on business. The key tools, knowledge and behaviour of business are passed on to generations of managers.
Through its unusual model, the content of its programmes and the value of its research, EDHEC nurtures its differences, encouraging students and teachers to think outside the box and foster their leadership qualities.
A business school for business, EDHEC trains generations of quick-thinking, inventive and resourceful entrepreneurs and managers who can change the rules of the game to take the teams and projects entrusted to them further.
Because effectiveness in business is borne out of being unique, EDHEC places great importance on diversity and a combination of cultures, profiles, practices and disciplines in its teaching and operations.
