« I am thrilled to be announcing the release of 4 new certificates in the field of Finance. EDHEC is one of the very few European institutions to offer such opportunity to students, said Pascale Viala, Director of Financial Economics studies Master & MSc at EDHEC Business School. EDHEC’s impact on the industry is known to all key finance players and this announcement ascertains once more our capacity to equip our students with the tools to make a difference on the job and to develop tomorrow’s leaders. I have no doubt this release will appeal to a lot of students ».

The structure of the certificates mixes 1 to 2 core courses and 2 electives, with 8 ECTS assigned to them (9.5 ECTS for the FinTech certificate). Students enrolled in one either the MSc in Financial Markets or MSc in Corporate Finance & Banking programmes may apply for a certificate of their choice during semester one, so as to attend courses during the second semester (no extra cost). A selection process will then take place, based on one’s academic performance
