The Lactalis Group and EDHEC Business School signed a partnership, showing their commitment to fostering a close relationship and promoting the international development of their respective groups.

The Lactalis Group, by becoming the first Corporate Programme Sponsor of the MSc in Global Business, is making a long-term investment in one of the School's most international specialist courses. This partnership has been designed to run for a minimum of 3 years and has 3 principal aims: to collaborate on the design of a basic course in ‘Brand Portfolio Management’; to bring together contributions by experts in procurement, category management and negotiations; and to source high-potential employees.

By working closely with our young talent, this innovative project will boost our partner’s employer brand, particularly through what are known as ‘kick-off days’. These training events, held in Laval and Lille, allowed 56 students of 13 different nationalities to gain an understanding of the workings of a major family-run agribusiness, with an economic model based on its distinctive positioning, namely the processing of milk in a variety of different ways, covering the entire range of dairy products. 

The students became acquainted with its international development strategy based on external drivers for growth. They were introduced to potential career paths through personal accounts given by young product managers from the Lactalis Group business incubator. Finally, our ‘globalised’ students were offered the unique opportunity to exchange views with members of Lactalis Group’s management. Jean-Yves Rémond (Director General of Human Resources), Thierry Clément (Director General of the Europe Dairy Division) and Martial Sekely (Edhec 1991 – General Manager Emerging Countries) all lent a hand and shared their experiences directly.




“It is my purpose to provide students with a strong foundation in business management and help them to succeed in a changing, global and diverse environment. The MSc in Global business offers a platform to educate the brightest minds for working in international business. Managers that understand how to include international thinking and multi-cultural relevancy in their business decisions will make an impact on the world.  I am thrilled to help realize that goal.”

— Bastiaan van der Linden

 The ability to manage across borders has become a strategic imperative for firms in an increasingly interdependent world. The contemporary environment offers a wide variety of opportunities as well as potential threats and it is the ability of the firm both to capitalize on opportunities and to neutralize potential threats that will determine its success in a globalizing world. Firms are confronted with the need to navigate across differences in economic environments, political systems, and national cultures. In this module we therefore look both at the nature of the international business environment and its implications both for the formulation of, and the successful implementation, of international business strategy. 
The rise of emerging markets, the accelerating pace of technological change, and more recently the financial meltdown have all made the contemporary environment both more complex and volatile. This no doubt makes strategy formulation and implementation a messy and a complex process but by no means any less important. It is also a particularly exciting time and we will combine a discussion of the concepts developed by some of the most renowned authors of the last decades with a review of a number of practical situations around the world. This should prepare you for many of the challenges you will face in your future jobs! 

 This course has two related objectives. The first is to broaden students' sensitivity to different cultural, socio-economic and legal environments encountered in the global marketplace. The second is to develop students' skills in developing and implementing international marketing strategies and programs in diverse contexts. The course examines both large and small firms marketing consumer products and services in developing and developed markets. In this course, you will develop a critical appreciation of marketing in a global context. 

 The course surveys key concepts of market finance and corporate finance in an effort to acquaint participants with core concepts, terminology, analytical tools and techniques in understanding opportunity and risk pertaining to global transactions in global environments. Risk, foreign exchange, capital flows, budgeting and financial management are covered from the perspective of the business unit and its strategies. Foreign exchange risks, hedging policies, exchange rates, pricing mechanisms and international capital budgeting are considered in light of corporate financial strategy.  

 Procurement and strategic sourcing expertise is crucial in today‘s competitive landscape. Procurement is one among the jobs in a firm that has completely changed during the last years. Was purchasing understood as a more or less clerical job, the professional today determines the strategic position of manufacturing and service firms the like. The job thus transformed to a function with strategic impact requiring new capabilities. The procurement professional today is the person in a firm managing the interface of internal and external resources. A rather challenging work as the manager has to ensure that corporate strategy, the internal clients’ perspectives and the potential of the supply market are aligned. 
The procurement function is responsible that the firm is generating the best competitive advantage through interacting with the supply base. Competitive advantage can be generated by having more innovative suppliers and products/ components/materials, jointly exploring new product development, having access to scarce resources when others are short, exploiting cost reduction opportunities thoroughly, having more responsive and fast delivery suppliers, let sourcing & procurement professionals open up new market opportunities in new regions. This is the foundation for our module. 

 In today’s globalised economy, organisations operate internationally. Their main focus is not longer only on their home market, but shifts to more international markets and customers. This shift not only affects the scale on which the organisations are performing, but also increases the complexity and importance of operations management decision-making. In this course we will focus on the main topics within the operations management field. The main focus is on how operations should be managed in order to keep or obtain a competitive position in a global and international environment. The consequence of the decisions made will be felt throughout the whole organisation and will affect the competitive position of the organisation for many years. 

 The course is an overview of international accounting concepts and practices, with an emphasis on analysing, and interpreting financial accounting numbers of stock-listed companies. During the course, students will get familiar with the key techniques used in multinational corporations to manage incoming and outgoing equity, transfers of funds, performance evaluation and efficiency. After having taken this course, you will be able to: (a) read and understand financial information in the annual report, (b) analyse the financial reporting of multinational companies and evaluate the quality of information given in them (c) have greater awareness about the problems involved with setting international transfer prices and ethics issues faced by multinational companies. 

 This course offers an intensive study of how firms, agencies and organizations assess country risk on a global basis. Our objective is to provide students with hands-on experience in country risk analysis through a structured approach to the analysis of sovereign and country risk in both mature and developing markets. After having taken this course participants will be able to: (a) Understand the key drivers of country and sovereign risk in both mature and emerging Asian markets, (b) Identify quantitative, qualitative and market indicators of vulnerability,  (c) Assess the impact of sovereign support and country risk on other exposures, including public sector entities, and  (d) Analyse high-risk situations. 

The class has 2 objectives: 
To present each component of illicit business:  - The development of the criminal economy, which is mainly based on the production, transport and distribution (traffics) of illicit goods, products and services (drugs, weapons, human beings…).  - The attack of the legal economy, which is mainly based on three modes of action: Predation (massive theft of strategic products, ie oil, extortion, kidnapping, fraud, piracy, cybercrime) – Parasitism (money laundering, illicit use of the supply chain) - Competition (contraband, counterfeiting).  To present the multiple stakeholders of illicit business:  - Mafias and other transnational / local criminal organizations  - Terrorist organizations and guerillas  - Unfair competitors (companies)  - Corrupted public stakeholders  - Internal and external fraudsters (employees, commercial partners, contractors..)  To present the efficient solutions that can be set up by multinational companies to protect their legal business against illicit business:  - To transfer the risks towards insurance  - To protect their people, business, data and assets  - To anticipate their potential contact with illicit business on their future markets.

 The course takes a practical and  professional perspective on how national and international law shapes the practices of a multinational organization as it develops, expands, employs, sources and engages in a host of other activities in several countries, all such activity possibly leading to litigation of different forms that can take place in international and transnational transactions. The case studies of specific situations faced by multinational organizations reviewed in light of international business constraints, objectives and legal environment are featured in this module. 

 Cultural differences and international context increase dramatically the difficulty level to come to terms with well-balanced agreements in business negotiation. Only a greater level of mastering of academic methods to conduct these international negotiations throughout every phases from “contact” to “closing” can help overcome the intrinsic difficulties of having 2 or more business people securing a valid and profitable agreement. This experiential and practical seminar aims at giving participants several academic methods, practical tools, and behavioural guidance to "getting to yes" in this challenging environment.

 This course prepares you for the tasks of researching and writing tyour master thesis. International Business takes place in a technical, cultural, regulatory and material environment requiring strong abilities to find, analyze, understand and transform qualitative and quantitative data. This module covers concept formulation, data gathering and data analysis by way of surveys, interviews, desk and field research. 


This seminar will teach you how to better frame ethical issues related to business and the economy, and to become more aware of the philosophical questions which underlie individual and collective decisions. You will learn about the practical implementation of ethical standards in business by participating to the Lille World Forum (forum for a responsible and sustainable economy).

  • better frame ethical issues related to business and the economy, especially issues concerning the domain of specialization of each MSc program.
  • be more aware of the philosophical questions which underlie individual and collective decisions. The aim of the course is not to provide precise answers to specific questions.



This seminar aims at understanding the importance and the nature of leadership and leadership development.
