H G Debreuilly

"I chose to do my academic exchange in Italy for the international reputation of Bocconi. Before my departure, the Study Abroad Office (SAO) of EDHEC helped me with my application, my ERASMUS scholarship’s request, and my choice of courses. Also, during the Beyond Borders fair, I received advice from EDHEC students who did an exchange in Italy in the past. At Bocconi, I studied with other exchange students from prestigious international schools and I could truly identify as a Bocconi student thanks to the events and activities happening on campus."

Global manager Certificate

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.

"I studied in New York City at Pace University (GM C) for one semester. I was able to choose a "fashion marketing" elective class, which became my favourite class to attend. Our professor invited many VIP guest speakers in class to share their knowledge and experience with us. It was a true source of inspiration and motivation to pursue my career in this marketing field. I also enjoyed our “Entrepreneurship” course. We had the chance and the honour to learn from Professor Bruce Bachenheimer. We learned a lot about taking opportunities, how to see the value in tiny things, and how to take the plunge to build a business.”

Students choose their specialisations in Year 3 and 4. Whether through academic specialisations (Marketing, Finance, Audit, HR), business specialisations (E-commerce, Investment banking, Luxury goods, Entrepreneurship, Retail) or even an International Business Track, this is when students firm up their career plans and, in many cases, go on to complete a Master of Science in their chosen field.

The impact on sector expertise

« One of the characteristics of the English taught e-commerce specialisation is that certain classes are given by professors from different disciplines, such as strategy or marketing, allowing for a dual perspective and a more contextualised approach to a given topic. Students are encouraged to obtain certification, from Google, for example, to increase their employability. Some 30% of e-commerce students go abroad for their final six-month placement, to Canada, the US, Australia, Asia, and so on.»

Camille Quartana

The impact on employability

"Working for the environment has fascinated me. These 6 months have been rich in project development but also in event organization. Moreover, one of my missions focused on communicating information related to the environment and the protection of resources on different platforms. I also collected and analysed data concerning energy and waste. Finally, the aspect of the internship that interested me the most was the creation of a circular economy with one of the private actors of the island. My desire to work in the sustainable development sector was confirmed after this first experience."

Camille took the “hospitality and Event Management" specialization in Year 3. She put her international career plan into action by finding an end-of-study internship at the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort.

The impact on employability

"I chose EDHEC for its prestige, the mandatory work placement s and international experience. It has been a successful gamble because while I was doing my Bank, Insurance, and Wealth Management concentration studies, I successfully found work placements in renown companies in finance. I never could have had such amazing work experiences without studying at EDHEC."
