EDHEC offers its students the perfect combination off academic excellence and effective preparation for the challenges of business life. The MSc in International Accounting & Finance is a unique opportunity and a great career start in this area. Many of my fellow students and I found really interesting jobs in the field of auditing (Big Four) or as controllers in large corporations. 

The professors were very dedicated and had an open ear inside and outside of the classroom. They also contributed to our personal development. The atmosphere in class was always highly professional and students showed great motivation and an interest in making this year a unique experience.
I was in the lucky position to already have close contacts with some large German companies. But having EDHEC on the CV is definitely a big advantage. The Career Centre always kept us updated on current job offers from the most attractive companies worldwide. With the great variety of offers (permanent positions, internships, graduate programmes ...) the centre really supports student development even after graduation. No matter which questions we had regarding our job applications or personal training, the Career Centre tried to support us.

The TICD is a great opportunity to experience what you might go through at an assessment centre. The two challenging days helped to find out where our weaknesses and strengths were. The professional recruiters tested us on different aspects and we received highly detailed feedback, which helps you prepare for the challenges of recruitment processes.

EDHEC for me is all about : Dedication, professionalism, career starter
