For example, 97 percent of EDHEC Global MBA students come from outside France; 46 percent are women,  and there are typically 30 nationalities represented in each cohort of 70 students.

The EDHEC Global MBA’s faculty is also diverse, with a total of 26 international (non-French) professors out of  45 part-time and full-time faculty members. There are 11 female professors and 12 visiting professors.  

The 2022 “Which MBA?” ranking also highlights another strength of the EDHEC Global MBA: it is beneficial to  students who want to take on new leadership roles in multinationals, non-profits, SMEs, and start-ups. This  year, the EDHEC Global MBA ranks #3 for Opening New Career Opportunities, which encompasses the diversity  of recruiters, the percentage of students who accept a job offer within 3 months of graduation, and alumni  rating of the school’s career services.  

Ninety percent of EDHEC Global MBA alumni move into new corporate positions within three months of graduation. EDHEC Global MBA alumni are attractive to companies because of the high quality of the EDHEC  educational experience and the intense professional development students receive during the 10-month  programme. 

EDHEC also ranks highly in Diversity of Recruiters, placing #3 in the world. This reflects the programme’s  perceived value by corporate recruiters from a wide variety of industries.  

“At EDHEC, our goal is to provide our students with a high-impact MBA experience, one that gives them all the  knowledge and skills they need to tackle the major issues facing companies and society in general,” says Richez.  “We’re dedicated to providing them with the best path forward and are proud of our alumni’s success and their  continued and consistent support.”
