EDHEC Business School

EDHEC Business School has been providing a first-class education for more than 100 years and has developed considerable expertise in training future managers to do business in Europe. To enable graduate business students on a short study period in France to benefit from the program's special insight on how business is done in Europe, the Business School has developed a four-week version of the Master's program. During this specially-designed, intensive "Strategies for Europe" course, participants attend two 3-credit modules that cover important topics about the European business scene, become acquainted with several regions of France, and visit leading companies and meet with their management.
