If you are looking to gain a real-world business education and develop an international perspective to help you develop, accelerate or change your career path, then the EDHEC Global MBA programme in Nice, south of France could be an ideal choice for you.

During the 10-month Global MBA programme you will have the opportunity to share, learn and connect with fellow participants every continent in the world – typically we have around 70 students from 30+ different nationalities combined with a highly-diverse and outstanding international faculty making it a truly global experience. The programme includes many personalised options, one month of electives, a one-month specialisation track and an 8-week tailored MBA project, accounting for 4 months of your programme, allowing you to tailor the programme according to your professional goals.


The intense programme blends core business fundamentals together with a choice of specialised tracks, tailored projects and international learning expeditions which will help you to develop your business and leadership mind-set for your future career.

Because of the shorter duration of the course, the Global MBA is especially suited to candidates who already have a strong professional base – on average, participants have 8 years of experience so the ROI can be particularly strong as you will be out of the workplace for less than a year but will have all the learning and development you need to define and achieve your ambitions and next steps. You can also have the option to extend your experience through a 6-month internship on completion of your studies or choose to fast-track your experience.

Each course includes a combination of academic teaching, real-life case studies and group projects to give you practical and actionable learning outcomes from both an inter-personal and professional perspective. The programme also includes 2 one-week international learning expeditions.

Build Your Strategic Foundations

During your first 6 months, you will gain 360◦ global business vision which allows you to understand and apply relevant strategic frameworks, ask the right questions and make informed, impactful decisions.

Personalise & Specialise

After building a solid foundation of the core fundamentals of business and leadership from September to February, your journey becomes a truly personalised experience from March through to the end of June.

Through a choice of electives in March and a specialisation track in April you can go deeper into your chosen field or develop new skills and perspectives. You can then choose your tailored MBA project which allows you to put into practise your learnings and experiences.
