With over 1,400 participants of more than 90 different nationalities, we were able to meet and exchange on the EDHEC Forum with the international students present that day. It was an opportunity to find out more about their backgrounds, their motivations for joining EDHEC and their projects for the coming years.

With five campuses in three countries, programmes taught entirely in English, compulsory international experience and exchange opportunities with 117 leading universities in 31 countries, the international dimension, combined with a real social and cultural diversity of students, is at the heart of EDHEC's ambitions and identity.
Thus, for Li Ming, previously Safety Manager and now a student of the MSC Strategy, Consulting & Digital Transformation, "the choice of a school with an international outlook, a good reputation and recognised know-how" now allows him to choose a consulting or strategy internship that he wishes to carry out internationally with a major player in the sector.
Throughout the year, EDHEC is committed to enabling students, whether French or international, to meet and exchange with professionals from companies offering positions abroad.
Events such as the EDHEC Forum or the International Career Day enable participants to really boost their projects by meeting the actors present but also by discovering new opportunities as was the case for Jishnu Gopi, a Master in Management student: "I was looking for new international opportunities starting with offers available online or on LinkedIn. I was finally able to meet Nestlé at the forum which offered English-language jobs in the Netherlands”, he explains.
As part of the International Career Day (the previous edition was held on November 25th, 2019 on the EDHEC campus in Lille), numerous activities (information and exchange sessions, working groups, etc.) were organised to give students the opportunity to meet companies and exchange with the managers present for the occasion.
Maria-Alejandra LARIOS, Head of Corporate Relations and International Marketing for EDHEC, highlights the opportunities provided by these meetings, offering "international students the possibility to find an internship or a job here in France, and for our French students, the possibility to secure a job opportunity or an internship abroad".
