Full Time MBA Overview

EDHEC Global MBA: Diverse as the World, Individual as You.

If you are looking to gain a real-world business education and an international perspective to help you develop, accelerate or change your career path, then the triple-accredited, top-ranked EDHEC Global MBA programme in Nice, France could be an ideal choice for you.

During the 10-month full-time programme you will have the opportunity to share, learn and connect with fellow participants from around the world combined with a highly-diverse and outstanding international faculty making it a truly global experience. Personalised options including specialised tracks and tailored projects account for 3 months of your programme, allowing you to tailor the programme according to your professional goals.


The intense programme blends core business fundamentals and leadership development together with a choice of specialised tracks, tailored projects and international learning expeditions to help you to develop your business and leadership mind-set for your future career. 

Because of the shorter duration of the course, the Global MBA is especially suited to candidates who already have a strong professional base – on average, participants have 8 years of experience so the ROI can be particularly strong as you will be out of the work place for less than a year but will have all the learning and development you need to define and achieve your ambitions and next steps. In addition we have a fully transparent and guaranteed scholarship policy and intakes in both September and January to maximise your investment in terms of timing and value. 

Choice of Specialised Tracks with Global Learning Expedition

1 month of the programme is dedicated to a specialised elective of your choice from Digital Innovation (1 week in New York), Leadership (1 week in Singapore), Entrepreneurship (1 week in San Francisco) or Finance (1 week in London)

Tailored 8-Week MBA Project

The 8-week period from May through June allows you to put your newly acquired skills and knowledge into practice in the form of a tailored MBA project. You can choose from one of six options designed to suit your own career goals and interests: Internship, Consulting Project, Business Plan, Sustainability Project, Research Project or an Academic Exchange

Personal Development & Career Strategy

EDHEC CareerSMART Programme is a personalised, international career programme. It helps you to acquire the knowledge, skills, tools and attitudes you need to improve your performance in the recruitment processes and to be able to show your potential in presentations, pitches and interviews. 

Exceptional Learning Environment

EDHEC’s Campus is located in Nice, a truly international city with an unbeatable quality of life. EDHEC Campus is in an elegant and modern complex overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. MBA participants benefit from an entire floor dedicated to executive training, learning, and research.
