Global Business Track

Study in English in 3 of the best universities in the world.

Why choose the global business track?

Taught entirely in English in Nice, the Global Business Track is designed for students seeking highly international training that develops a versatile set of skills enabling them to thrive on the global stage. A limited number of students may enrol for this track.

The course takes place in three countries and appeals to students who want to study solely through English in a multicultural environment. Periods of classroom-based learning are combined with extended work placements to gain an understanding of the challenges of globalisation and prepare for an international career in a globalised world. All students follow the same curriculum in years 1 and 2 before leaving to study abroad in the final two years. Their destination depends on the option chosen at the time of admission. As well as their EDHEC International BBA, students receive a certificate from the partner institution. They also gain first-hand intercultural experience on a world-class campus, with access to all it has to offer.

Denis Couturier

"For 100 years, UCLA Extension has been educating students to be successful. Our UCLA-approved curriculum delivered by leading experts and practitioners in the field, offers students the unique opportunity to supplement curriculum with real-time case studies as they evolve in Los Angeles, which if were a nation would be the 19th largest economy in the world. Each day brings a diversity of world leaders and business icons to campus to motivate a new generation of talent. We are very proud of our innovative collaboration with EDHEC Business School. This September, we welcomed very bright and enthusiastic students to our campus. We were 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 vigour 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. We are looking forward to a long collaboration with EDHEC as we explore the Future of Education together."
