Following an extensive search for the perfect location, EDHEC has chosen to build its new Lille International Campus on an exceptional site of 21 acres. Located in the heart of the Greater Lille metropolis, just minutes away from Lille's 2 train stations, the campus has been designated to meet the highest international standards, with respect for the environment, and will provide students with superior pedagogical, sporting, cultural and accommodation facilities.
Founded in 1906, EDHEC is a French Business School with two main campuses (Lille, Nice) and three executive campuses in Paris, London and Singapore. The school has an enrollment of over 6,200 full-time students and is offering a highly competitive business degree at the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels. Ranked among the leading schools in Europe, EDHEC is one of the few management schools with the three accreditations AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. EDHEC has a selective national entrance examination and recruiters appreciate our candidates’ broad academic knowledge, competence in two foreign languages (in addition to French) and experience gained from practical internships carried out throughout the world. EDHEC is currently pursuing partnerships at the Graduate level with more than 130 prestigious institutions worldwide. Please view the 2017 - 2018 Fact Sheet

A passport valid through 6 months past the program end date is required for all study abroad programs. Upon formal acceptance to participate in the program, students will need to register through CampusFrance online as well as apply for a French student visa. The study abroad advisor will review this process with all admitted students during the pre-departure orientation. The French student visa application is a lengthy process which requires that students be without their passports for quite some time. As such, students are highly discouraged from making any international travel plans within 90 days of the start date of their program.
