You will take three of these 5 foundation courses in an online format in the July/August period. According to your background, the Selection Committee may require specific classes or you may choose three courses from this list.

The objective of this course is to provide you with a solid grounding in the principles and practice of finance and develop the understanding of the tools necessary to make good financial decisions. This module aims to provide knowledge and understanding of key management issues in corporate finance and in the market for financial assets.

This course is run as a combination of two modules: Basics in Statistics and Introduction to Coding with R through EDHEC’s Online Unit. We strongly recommend completing the modules in parallel, one week at a time.

This Basics in Statistics module presents the basic principles of statistical data analysis (description, estimation, testing), as well as the most common statistical methods such as linear regression.

The Introduction to Coding with R module

Introduces R, a standard and powerful programming language well suited for data analysis: its objects and its syntax
Presents Anaconda and RStudio, two user-friendly working environments for R
Presents selected built-in functions that perform common tasks.

The course is designed to provide you with an overview of the foundations of financial accounting with a practical focus on Financial statement analysis and the valuation of public organizations. These foundations are deemed necessary in order for students to successfully pursue the course of their studies at the Master's level.

The purpose of this course is to provide you with fundamental knowledge in Marketing, and to demonstrate the key role marketing takes within any organisation. You will gain a better understanding of what marketing is and what its role in the firm is, of the process of value creation from the perspective of customers, producers, and society at large. You will be know how to mix various marketing tools and techniques in a coherent manner.

This course’s primary objective is to help you answer several important strategic questions for companies or organizations, such as: What business shall we be in? How to compete for resources and create value? How to organize for and assess performance?... The course focuses on the complex and multidimensional nature of strategic decision-making.

The purpose of this course is to highlight essential dimensions of ethics in business. After an introduction to ethics and to the main approaches to ethical decision-making, the course will focus on some more specific ethics questions related to contexts such as professions in business, globalization, and responsible leadership. You will participate in the Lille World Forum, interview, and write the best practices of one of the speakers.

This course aims at developing a historical, conceptual and empirical synthesis of the “creative economy” through its emergence, evolutions, expansions, and disruptions. It discusses the effects of the creative economy on the identities, strategies, management, values-models, structures, and processes of creative and innovative organizations. It introduces four main analytical frameworks:

  • The creative “knowledge-ideas-values” chain
  • The creative and innovative organizations as “creative powerhouses”
  • The “Upperground-Middleground-Underground” spatial and cognitive structure of creative ecosystems
  • Creative leadership and managerial capabilities for the creative economy

This course also aims at exploring the new strategies, ideas, and organisations, meeting social needs of all kinds (working conditions, education, health...), while at the same time extending and stepping up civil society. It also gives an introduction to project management. After having presented the links between creative economy and social business, it provides you with the methods you will apply in the Project Management course. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to describe and analyse creative and innovative organisations in the context of their respective creative ecosystems, value networks, and territories and the common boundaries between social innovation, sustainable development, philanthropy, and corporate social responsibility.

« Objects », like artifacts and the behaviors that become norms in society carry social, cultural, and personal meaning. Exploring lifestyle practices, and analysing objects, services, and trends, you will investigate the meanings and motivations behind lifestyle behaviors particularly as they are expressed in the creative and social innovation industries including leisure, fashion, entertainment, politics, and sustainability. The course investigates the underlying motivations that trigger lifestyle trends and attempt to identify the mechanisms that make something “popular”.  Upon completion of the course, you will be able to predict if a lifestyle proposal will be popular or not and create text, advertising, or pitch, adapted to a lifestyle theme.

During the philanthropy course, you will get an overview of tools, techniques, and strategies used by individuals, companies, and foundations in their giving policies. The course will also emphasize how philanthropy can serve, promote or spark social innovation initiatives. It will also outline the recent changes in the philanthropic landscape (“Philantrepreneurship”, micro-giving, venture philanthropy, critics of modern days philanthropy…). You will also learn simple ways to act for the common good now and tomorrow. The practical seminar on fundraising focus on the creation of wealth and funding for the non-profit sector, giving an overview of the fundraising trends in Europe in the USA, and in emerging economies, focus on different types of giving (bequest, foundation giving…). Networking and the media are also given particular attention. The course also concentrates on practical tools and techniques in order to help you master the basic principles of fundraising. Other topics will include network building, definition of causes, cause positioning, and the management of private funding (individuals, foundations, and corporations). The seminar on lobbying introduces and illustrates theories and approaches that may be useful to you if you want to pursue a career in lobbying and/or advocacy. What is the difference between lobbying and advocacy? What are the main principles for successful lobbying? Which procedures and tactics are essential?... are among the topics the seminar will touch upon. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to develop a strategic approach to fundraising, activate the key leverages of operational fundraising and, a basic advocacy plan during class, and simulate role plays scenarios of the plans from different stakeholders’ perspectives.

This course will provide you with the methods and problem-solving modes best adapted to beginning any project work. It encourages the empowerment of students in the practical implementation of the process of knowledge management of creative and/or social projects. You will apply your management learning to real cases where they carry out a project belonging to the Creative Economy and/or the Social Innovation fields with the initiativesETcité cluster in Lille. You will learn to monitor the steps within any process of management and anticipate the desired results and communicate those results. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to analyse the whole process of project management, improve it in the future and provoke collective intelligence through a multicultural team and, find agile solutions to client levers and gears in order to develop the project, especially in highly evolutive creative and social contexts.

Creative industries, creative people, and business creativity require critical thinking skills, the scientific method, and analytical ability. This module explores value creation for the creative industries through exploratory research and a familiarity with consulting studies done for the creative economy.

This course will help you understand the main steps to build an emerging social entrepreneurship project as well as giving students the tools needed to build a meaningful career in this field. It aims at exploring the new strategies, ideas and organisations meeting social needs of all kinds (working conditions, education, health...), experimenting with every key element of social entrepreneur strategy. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to apply the key ingredients to go from social innovation ideas to concrete social entrepreneurship and create a socially innovative business model, including assessment (social impact assessment).

In alignment with the shift from the former socialist president Francois Hollande to left-leaning fiscal conservative president Emmanuel Macron, France is ready for a change. We ‘need a strong France with a sense of its own destiny’ (Macron, 2017). To succeed in the French dynamic knowledge-based business environment, individuals need to understand the unique French socio-cultural environment. As a potential future French manager, you will need to understand the French workers’ rights and draw the links between business and political ideals. Hence, the primary objective of the course socio-cultural France is to develop the necessary skills to understand the complexity of French business.

Public policies and State aid are strong in the arts and cultural sector in France as in many other European countries. The business model of many organisations has taken into account such a legal and financial environment. Yet, the combined effect of new theoretical approaches and increased pressure on public spending have induced dramatic changes in both the political framework and the means of national and local governments.

Therefore, management of arts and cultural organisations requires understanding such evolutions and implementing adequate response to meet the challenges ahead. It also requires combining and reconciling different operational objectives. Upon of the course, you will be able to combine theoretical and practical concepts in order to define and implement original strategies in the service of organizations evolving in a both national and international complex environment.

As the famous song by Irving Berlin goes, “There is no business-like show business”. Well, there is certainly no Industry like the Entertainment Industry either. The course will highlight the specifics of the Entertainment Industry and why working in it is definitely a unique experience – for better or worse. Ultimately it shall help you answer the question: am I up for the unique job of managing Creative Talents? Upon completion of the course, you will be able to develop tools to build their own way of helping Creative Talents deliver their best output, while getting the most out of it from a business standpoint. You will also develop a sense of how the management of Creative Talents can yield valuable knowledge/lessons outside the scope of the Entertainment Industry (emotional intelligence, disruptive innovation, branded content …).

The course provides an overview of economic and social development policies as applied by the donor community and other stakeholders up to this day. It then focuses on the financial sector development and presents the various approaches to improve access to finance, from microfinance to values-based banking. This course provides basic knowledge and understanding of legal and non-legal concepts related to intellectual property within the creative industries, and to a larger extent, within any industry and business project. The course will enable you to better comprehend issues such as copyright in an increasingly complex, digitalised & global world. It focuses on general principles & their application to creative industries. The course brings real-life examples and a practical approach so as to give students transferable skills to operate within the project, career, and industry of their choosing.

This course is part of the Project Management core module. You will take part in coaching sessions.

   

Family-owned and -run businesses dominate in most economies. According to the latest figures, around 83 percent of French businesses are family businesses. Similarly, worldwide family businesses account for around 70 to 90 percent of all businesses. In the US, family businesses constitute 85 percent of private-sector employment and one-third of the S&P 500. The probability is high that many students will pursue careers in or with family businesses. Jobs in investment banking, wealth management, consulting, and management all relate to some extent to family businesses. However, few understand this special type of business as family firms (both private and publicly traded) face unique challenges. These difficulties are primarily related to the interaction of family, management, and ownership - particularly where the family wishes to preserve its influence and control from generation to generation. The goal of the course is therefore to familiarize students with the notion of a family business and its challenges, as well as to provide more specific exposure to family firms in France and worldwide.
