Since November 2018, EDHEC Online has been offering EDHEC Business School degree and certificate programmes, adapted to all needs, both in English and French. EDHEC Online’s two main assets are certification from a prestigious business school and the agility afforded by close-contact e-learning via personalised coaching. Participants in EDHEC Online programmes also join the EDHEC community and the School’s excellent Alumni network.
Ranging from the BBA for top athletes, to programmes for those holding positions of responsibility in business and executive education, EDHEC Online is designed to be “a global, high-quality e-learning platform” says Benoit Arnaud, Director of EDHEC Online.
To further improve agility, EDHEC Online operates as a genuinely start-up business within EDHEC Business School. It delivers e-learning degrees for students of all profiles who cannot study on campus for timetable or geographic reasons, or who prefer to learn online.
The majority of students are employed with positions ranging from young professionals to managing directors. EDHEC Online’s array of programmes allows them to gain access to positions of high managerial responsibility, to implement digital transformation in their companies or to steer them commercially or financially.
EDHEC Online’s dedicated Online Campus gives participants access to the services and resources they need to learn: selections of videos, articles, podcasts, and their virtual classes. The Online Campus represents a space of professional and personal development for the participants.
Ever since launch, EDHEC Online programmes have been customised and closely tailored to “human” needs, so as to provide genuine “close-contact e-learning” via continuous support.
“All our students benefit from individual follow-up through weekly meetings. Our ambition is to provide our participants with an unprecedented and tailor-made “EDHEC experience” thanks to a collaborative platform which allows them to be in constant contact with other learners as well as the entire teaching team” Benoît ARNAUD, Associate Dean EDHEC Online
Multiplying quality partnerships on the cutting edge of technology and training
With prestigious universities
Right from November 2018, EDHEC Business School joined the Future of Management Education (FOME) alliance, in order to set up the first international platform of 100%-online degrees with six other leading international business schools: Imperial College Business School, ESMT Berlin, BI Norwegian Business School, SMU Singapore, Ivey Business School and Melbourne Business School.
FOME is combining its technological and educational know-how to transform the global market for online degree training.
The alliance enables EDHEC to provide the greatest number of people with access to its high-quality content, underpinned by cutting-edge technological innovations. Examples of innovation include augmented social learning to facilitate group work at distance, a hologram that enables the platform to host professors from all over the world and, in the near future, adaptive learning to customise the learning experience.
“In a fast-expanding global online education market estimated at over $180 billion, we have strong ambitions to impose ourselves as a pivotal player” Emmanuel METAIS, Dean of EDHEC Business School
October 2019 saw EDHEC Online team up with Stanford for its BSc online programme. Participants interested in entrepreneurship now have the chance to take four educational modules incorporated in the Stanford Innovation and Entrepreneurship programme.
These specialisations delivered in full by Stanford professors enable participants to acquire a genuine culture of innovation, prepare enduring corporate strategies and develop their decision-making abilities. The curriculum is recognised via a Certificate of Achievement delivered by the Stanford Center for Professional Development.
“We are delighted to work with EDHEC. Stanford’s innovation and entrepreneurship modules fit perfectly with the BSc Online. They offer EDHEC students the same working environment and tools as Stanford students, and teach them skills they can put into practice in their working life.” Paul Marca, Associate Vice Provost, Stanford Center for Professional Development.
