Corporate Partnerships

Corporate Partners & Business Visits

EDHEC benefits from an extensive business network throughout France and Europe with companies and consultants who hire our students and provide professors with action research topics at the heart of our learning model. Excursions are planned to take advantage of local partnerships on the French Riviera and programme themes are woven into the numerous question/answer possibilities afforded during these special up-close business visits.

Summer programmes are designed to integrate our corporate partners so that course contents directly apply to the discussion of business strategy and brand development. Some smaller business excursions are planned but two multinational players in particular provide a programme focus allowing for an in-depth view of the business challenges that the summer programme seeks to investigate.

This year's sponsors and partners for the action-based research learning design are two multinational players located right on the French Riviera. On-site visits allows students to ask questions see operations first-hand and observe business in action.
