We prepare international talents for global careers. By joining EDHEC, you will become part of a community committed to your success.

Student life

For more than a century, EDHEC Business School has been educating students from around the world in the theory and practice of business and management. On our campuses, you will meet and work with like-minded people from diverse backgrounds and forge friendships with students from more than 90 countries. You can engage in a wealth of student associations and enjoy a wide array of sporting activities. EDHEC has more than 55 student associations from the arts, charity work and business consulting to sports and cooking… you name it, EDHEC has a club for it!

Two campuses in France

You will live and study in a cosmopolitan environment on one of our campuses in Lille or in Nice. Famed for its vibrant student and cultural life, the northern French city of Lille is situated at the heart of Europe. It is only an hour by train from Paris and has direct transport links to Brussels, London and a host of European cities. Nice is situated on the French Riviera, close to Italy. Served by France’s second-largest international airport, it is famed for its beauty, boasting mountainous landscapes as well as a glistening Mediterranean coastline. The city has been home to some of the world’s greatest artists, including Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall, and the Impressionists. Both cities are bustling technological hubs, too, with Euratechnologies in Lille and Sophia Antipolis in Nice. At Station F in Paris, EDHEC supports entrepreneurs in its incubators in Lille and Nice.


Your EDHEC experience will start even before you arrive on campus. You will receive all the support you need to settle seamlessly in France. Our dedicated team at the International Student Office will guide you through every step of the administrative process and answer all of your questions about living in France, from medical and home insurance to banking, social security and residence permits.

EDHEC’s Career Centre also offers an array of tailored services to help you achieve your professional goals. Its best-in-class specialists take pride in their wealth of corporate relations, ensuring that you have access to top-tier talent recognition, personal coaching, mentoring and job-fair services.  

EDHEC’s corporate relationships further mean your learning experience will involve real-life case studies, workshops, and corporate challenges, giving you insights into business developments as they unfold an unprecedented glimpse of what really happens behind closed corporate doors.

Worldwide network

As a graduate, you will become part of the EDHEC Alumnus community, a network of more than 46,000 people in over 125 countries. The association provides life-long support to graduates and helps them develop and promote their professional projects and businesses.
