EDHEC is one of the top five business schools in France. Its reputation is built on the high quality
of its faculty and the privileged relationship with professionals that the school has cultivated
since its establishment in 1906. EDHEC Business School has decided to draw on its extensive
knowledge of the professional environment and has therefore focused its research on themes that
satisfy the needs of professionals.
