#1 They give you complete organisational freedom

100% online courses grant significant flexibility in terms of organisation. You have the option of remaining an employee in order to maintain financial stability while you undertake your distance learning course, or of beginning your entrepreneurship alongside your studies, each informing the other on a daily basis. Distance learning is also uniquely versatile in allowing you to learn from any location, regardless of whether you live far from the cities in which Business School campuses are situated or abroad.

#2 They immerse you in a digital environment

In taking a distance learning course supported by the latest developments in Ed Tech, you will master innovative digital tools and discover new learning methods. The daily immersion in a digital environment provided by entrepreneurial development programmes allows you to absorb the knowledge, skills, and reflexes which you will need in order to adapt your future business to digital challenges, in terms of organisation, administration, and management.

Throughout your online training, you will be in contact with teachers, coaches, and academic mentors who keep meticulously up-to-date with developments within their areas of specialisation. As part of an EDHEC online diploma course, you may have the chance to work on ground-breaking innovations or new business models which may be useful in your entrepreneurial venture.

All of these learning experiences will allow you, as a future company director, to familiarise yourself with, understand, and master the latest rules and challenges of the economic environment through which you will soon be leading your business.
