Is the course compatible with my job?

EDHEC’s General Management Acceleration Programme is a 3-week, fast-track course delivered over a period of 6 months. Each week, participants will enjoy courses, talks by business leaders and experts, and off-campus seminars. The courses take place from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 6 pm (times indicative only). You can also join other EDHEC Executive elective. The optional executive courses will help you to extend your knowledge and grow your professional network with participants from EDHEC’s MBA programme and the business executives programme, or during the optional Business Trip with participants from the Advanced Management Programme.

How are the off-campus courses organised?

Every week, a different topic is covered (strategy, finance, leadership, mega-trends) from a topical perspective. The courses take place on the EDHEC campus in Paris, situated in the middle of the business district between the Bourse and the Opéra. Some modules are organised off-campus with partner institutions: the world of start-ups at Euratechnologies in Lille, the French War School, the most prestigious training institute for senior commanders in the French army, located in the military school in Paris, or the D-School at the Ecole des Ponts Paris Tech. Priority is on discussing and comparing experiences between participants. Learning comes from the numerous encounters, the study of other organisations and original teaching input.

Who are the other participants?

Each group is made up of senior managers, decision makers, executives and future executives. They all have extensive business experience, on average between 8 and 20 years. They have managed staff either directly or indirectly, with successful experience in positions of responsibility. Each EDHEC General Acceleration Management Programme class is unique: it forms the perfect venue for valuable encounters and discussions with other professionals.

What is the level?

EDHEC’s General Management Acceleration Programme is an executive diploma course delivered by EDHEC Business School’s Executive Education. On successful completion, the students receive an EDHEC certificate: the Certificate of Business Administration (CBA).
There is an assessment every week, and presence and participation are also taken into account. To receive your certificate, you must have attended and validated the 3 weeks of courses at EDHEC. There are no exams at the end of the course.
