EDHEC Executive MBA programme will give you the know-how you need to drive your organisation’s performance and consolidate your leadership.
EDHEC Executive MBA core courses address all the disciplines that underpin corporate management to give students the tools they need to master all the key aspects of strategic and business management. The core courses are delivered in English by EDHEC teaching faculty and professional experts.
They cover the following areas:
EDHEC Executive MBA programme offers a wide choice of top level business options on the Lille and Paris campuses to consolidate your skills and provide you with new perspectives on management issues.
You can choose up to 6 different electives covering a total of 90 hours.
To help them gain a better understanding of the challenges raised by globalisation and how to deal with them, the students take part in 2 Global Business Trips.
The Global Business Trips help you explore how economic and political models work in relation to western models, understand the mechanics of competition, and identify key business success factors. The trips also help you to step back, develop strategic sensitivity and acquire new managerial reflexes in project and people management.
The Global Business Trip includes a range of complementary activities:
At the end of the business trip, students form teams to write a detailed report on an industry or company of their choice: the Global Business Report. This report gives them the opportunity to gauge the insights acquired during the business trip, and to demonstrate their ability to apply the tools presented during the course to real-life conditions.
The aim of the Global Business Report is twofold:
The EDHEC Executive MBA consulting project consists of drafting recommendations , in the same way as a real consultant, on a concrete topic linked to your career plan and that is useful to the business organisation. It may concern the company you work for, one of its customers, or a company that you would like to found or take over. It involves both a long-term take of the future and a real understanding of the present, demonstrating a keen sense of reality that combines good sense, reaction and action. You will be supported by both a coach and a member of the teaching faculty in this exercise, and will discuss the work with the other members of your team.
To help consolidate the theory acquired during your study programme and put it into practice.
To acquire a problem-solving methodology with a strategic bias (project management, framing a problem, diagnosis methods, developing and communicating proposals, etc.).
To develop formal strategic and cross-sector recommendations for a real management issue, similar to those you will develop later on.
Students defend their consulting project orally in front of a 2-person panel who examine the clarity and thrust of the diagnosis as well as the relevance of the recommendations envisaged.
EDHEC Executive MBA programme is based on a highly innovative approach built around three areas:
EDHEC Executive MBA programme puts great emphasis on collaborative activities to help develop your leadership skills and strategic prowess. A series of seminars complete the group dynamics with a human-sized class located on the Lille and Paris campuses, with the aim of enhancing personal efficiency and decision-making skills.
Dozens of case studies, often based on professional issues that members of the team have come up against, mean that you debate your ideas and formulate joint recommendations. In this active learning context, the teamwork activities hone your leadership skills and help you to understand how an efficient team works and the best attitude to adopt to boost your team’s performance.
EDHEC Executive MBA combines dense and high performance learning with intense tailored support. Students are given personal tutoring to complete their project and develop their leadership so that later on, they can shoulder their responsabilities fully and serenely.
Organised at regular intervals during the course of the programme, the individual coaching sessions cover three main areas:
Two additional sessions will help you to customize your approach to the "decision-making" module.
Develop your professional transformation through the innovative and relevant action learning input.
EDHEC Executive MBA is a balanced programme that combines serious academic input with a hands-on approach to the real challenges of business life.
Priority is given to business basics: finance, strategy, studies of new business models
An individual consulting project based on a real company case of your choice
Many unresolved case studies, role plays and business games

It also provides students with tailored support via coaching sessions with a top flight teaching team. The programme also explores other business organisations through discussion and sharing experiences with the class during the courses and the group work.
EDHEC Executive MBA programme gave me a solid foundation of skills and know-how to manage and unite a team. It helped me to develop a global approach and to make pertinent decisions. It taught me to see the big picture and to be objective and revealed my leadership style. Today, I try to bring out the best in each individual in my management practices. I’m also aware of the need to continually learn, and to cultivate self learning.
