"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

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 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."

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.»

Florian Montaufier

The impact on employability

"The main source of motivation that led me to choose this BBA programme was its international aspect. I was looking for a degree that would be recognised internationally and with the triple accreditation (French, European, and worldwide, a.k.a. EESPIG, EQUIS, AACSB). The Business Management track gives you the right set of tools to develop hard and soft skills in line with the job market. I am currently doing my work placement at KPMG and I learn to confront what I have studied in school with the needs of our clients. Before that, I worked for eight months at the financial department of TC Transcontinental in Montreal, Canada." In September 2020, Florian will join the MSc in Finance at EDHEC.
