Denis Couturier

"For 100 years, UCLA Extension has been educating students to be successful. We are very proud of our innovative collaboration with EDHEC Business School. Each year, we welcome very bright and enthusiastic students to our campus. We are all excited for the EDHEC International BBA students to join the UCLA family and be able to provide them with the tools and access to move closer to accomplishing their goals. The next year of their lives will be filled with competency-based learning paired with projects, teamwork and invention. The other students in their classes and instructors will gain just as much from the experience and develop lasting networks that go beyond borders. I have no doubt that when the students graduate from our International Trade and Commerce program and become members of the UCLA Alumni Association, they will complete the remainder of their EDHEC degree with vigor and go out into the world ready for the challenges of the new economy. These graduates will be highly differentiated from their peers with a well-rounded, unique, academic experience from two great brands."

« Coming from Hong Kong, I knew from the start that I wanted to travel during my studies. In Singapore, our professors have an incredible background, and it is an honour to learn from their expertise. Our digital marketing professor, Prof. Vijay Sethi, has been elected best professor in the world in 2013 (The Economist). His pedagogy is outstanding and he really knows how to captivate the entire class. My International Finance professor, Dr Siriwan Chutikamoltham, has a lot of professional experience in Finance, she holds a PhD from Harvard, USA. She is always to take extra time to help if we have questions. Our Cultural Intelligence professor, Dr Hoo Hui Teng, pushes us out of our comfort zone. It is a very active class. At the end of this year, I hope to gain extensive knowledge about the specificities of the Asian market. »

« If you sit in my classroom for three hours and I don’t stretch you or give you a slightly different perspective, then I failed as a teacher. My teaching style is all discussion-oriented, I teach only through case studies mainly, the students have to go out and research industries and they do presentations in the class. EDHEC students have been absolutely wonderful in that particular part. »
