Arrival of 11 new professors at EDHEC

Written on 24 October 2018.


EDHEC Business School continues to deliver on its strategic development plan by recruiting 11 new professor-researchers for the new academic year.  
All these new professors command significant international experience and were recruited for their academic excellence, experience of industry and their commitment to making an impact on the business world, in line with EDHEC’s strategic model, underpinned by research of real practical use to society, businesses and students.  
These recruitments respond to the challenges of digitalisation and new learning methods, and further the School’s desire to foster pedagogical innovation and consequently offer students very high-quality tuition and a unique educational experience designed to ensure they remain employable throughout their careers.  
These new professors reinforce EDHEC’s academic community in a wide variety of teaching and research disciplines. Their profiles offer a coherent combination of academic excellence, pedagogical experience and a clear grasp of the issues currently facing businesses”, underlines Christophe Roquilly, Associate Dean for Faculty and Research at EDHEC Business School.  
Following these new arrivals, EDHEC’s academic community now extends to 184 professors and researchers, a 30% increase on three years ago.
