Your international journey

Build your international journey

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.

The Study Abroad Office (SAO) is the dedicated academic exchange service to help you plan your time abroad, before, during, and after your stay. An academic exchange is a semester-long immersion at one of our partner universities or business schools and is a unique opportunity to grow your international profile in a multicultural environment, get to grips with complex international economic issues and learn to face cultural differences. Studying abroad is the opportunity to develop your skills with a view to building your future career or continuing your education post-BBA.

 

 

The Study Abroad Office organises a number of events throughout the year:

  • International forum EDHEC students who have already completed their academic exchanges, as well as international students, present their universities.
  • Pre-departure briefings Small group sessions that provide students with practical, cultural and academic information about their forthcoming exchange.
  • Beyond Borders An activity day to address academic, practical and cultural concerns students may have about their stay.
  • Welcome back coffee An opportunity for students to discuss their international experience during a “Welcome back!" event.

"It has been my favorite semester. I loved taking classes in English with English-speaking professors. Classes were very interesting and the teaching style was very different from what I was used to." Manhattan College, New York, USA

MSc Green management & Energy, Bocconi University. 2020

One semester of the Global Manager Certificate is spent at one of our prestigious partner institutions in New York, Dublin, Seoul or London, where students follow the demanding International Business Management curriculum in English. This leads to the Global Manager Certificate, which is awarded in addition to your EDHEC International BBA degree, and earns you the credits required to validate your Year 2-Semester 2. This programme is unique on the market and is an original and efficient way to build a career plan that is resolutely focused on international business as from year two, perhaps even followed by an internship.


Valentine Bouffinier EDHEC International BBA

"I chose to go to Yonsei University because it is in QS's Asia Top 20 best institutions ranking. All my classes were taught in English: Project Management, International Management, Trade, and Business Model Development. I also took a Korean Language & Culture course that helped a lot in my day-to-day life in Korea." Valentine Bouffinier,
