Thanks to its relevance to the business world and its academic recognition, EDHEC Business School has built over the years sound academic partnerships with leading business schools and universities. One of these outstanding agreements has been officially signed last week with Sungkyunkwan Graduate School of Business (SKK GSB), an icon of global MBA education in Korea, in the framework of the EDHEC GETT programme (Global Economic Transformation & Technology MiM programme).
"In line with our recent agreements with National Technology University in Singapore and Berkeley Haas in the US, the collaboration with SKK GSB illustrates the strategic development of EDHEC Business School with the world’s foremost academic institutions”, says Richard PERRIN, Director of International Relations at EDHEC Business School.
Set within the oldest university in the country, SKK GSB offers a hands-on curriculum preparing today’s students to face tomorrow’s challenges. Welcomed by Emmanuel METAIS, Dean of EDHEC Business School, Jae Ha Lee, Dean of SKK GSB, and Andrew YI, Vice-Dean, visited the Paris and Lille Campuses on November 2017. "We are delighted to welcome Professor Jae Ha Lee, Dean of SKK GSB. This partnership exemplifies EDHEC Business School commitment to provide students with a truly global experience.

"As a Strategic Management scholar trained in Business History, I see the importance to understand long term implications of technology driven transformation in our society for future business leaders", says Ludovic CAILLUET, Academic Director of the EDHEC Global Economic Transformation & Technology programme (GETT). "On top of those wanting to join corporations to create the future of technology and business, many students thrive to participate into venture creation or join mission-driven organizations. The EDHEC GETT has the ability to make their learning experience exciting, cutting edge and meaningful to the economic and social challenges confronting today’s world".
The Global Economic Transformation & Technology track (GETT) within the Master in Management programme, has been shaped by EDHEC Business School in partnership with Sungkyunkwan Graduate School of Business (SKK GSB) and Berkeley Haas. This 3-year programme exposes students to the managerial talents desired by global companies serving the needs of sustainable development and meeting the challenge of disruptive change caused by advances in information and technology.
