International experience is a clear advantage on any CV and a mandatory feature of the EDHEC International BBA degree, with students spending one semester abroad, either at a university or in an internship. Two types of academic exchanges are available in year 2, namely the traditional exchange or the Global Manager Certificate (GMC). In year 3 students can opt for the traditional semester-long exchange or choose to spend a year abroad within the scope of a double degree.
