On October 12th, 2021, EDHEC Business School hosted a presentation of its Masters and BBA programs and a campus tour on its Lille campus to a Fulbright US Universities Delegation. Emmanuel Métais, Dean, Michelle Sisto, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Alessia Di Domenico, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies took turns in presenting EDHEC’s programs portfolio. The delegation included representatives of Texas A&M University, Rice University, Northampton County Area Community College, Framingham State University, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, George Washington University, Oklahoma State University, Florida International University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Salisbury University and St. John’s University. Professor Gianfranco Gianfrate concluded the school’s presentation with a talk on green finance, a topic where EDHEC is among the schools leading the research field.

“This event offered us a unique opportunity to reinforce the relations with our partner universities (Texas A&M University, Florida International University, George Washington University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and to hopefully foster new collaborations,” says Sophie Simard, Head of International Development.

“The American delegation was very impressed by what they discovered, and I am sure that new partnership projects will soon be developed”, concludes François Gauthier, Fulbright France director.
