    Any questions on the program?

    EDHEC Online Campus: how does it work? 

    The program content is divided into modules. For each module, a set of deliverables is usually required, to be completed individually or in groups.

    On the virtual campus, you have access to weekly interactive online classes, workshops and discussions via Slack messaging. Our participants are also required to work in groups on a collaborative project throughout the program.

    Compatible with tablets and mobiles, the online campus is accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world.
    Interactions between peers and mutual support are at the heart of the EDHEC Online pedagogy: the support team is always available to help participants get organised, succeed in their learning path up to graduation, and achieve their career goals.

    What is an online degree worth?

    An online diploma has the same value as an in-person diploma. This official recognition certifies the quality of the knowledge and skills acquired.

    On completing an online program with EDHEC, you will receive a diploma from a Business School ranked 7th in Europe (Financial Times 2022 ranking) with triple accreditation (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA). This guarantees the academic excellence of the programs, the expertise of the teaching staff, as well as its close ties to businesses.

    As with any graduation from a program attended in person, EDHEC Business School holds official graduation ceremonies for its online diplomas, at one of its campuses, to bring together the participants and pedagogical teams that have contributed to their learning and their online experience.

    What is the difference between an online degree and one attended in person?

    Both channels offer the same level of academic excellence and personalized support. The degrees carry the same value.

    How much time should I spend on an e-learning course?

    You experience several different learning formats: with your entire class during live online classes, in learning groups and on your own at your own pace. We recommend you dedicate 10 to 15 hours of individual work towards your course per week.

    Maintaining a work-life balance is essential and will help to ensure learners get the most out of their course. Our training courses are designed so that learners can adjust their workload to align with their personal situation.

    One benefit of remote work is that learners can fit it into their personal and professional lives.

    Can I participate in the program without any financial skills?

    Although we recommend that candidates have some basic knowledge of finance principles, it is not mandatory to have previous experience or training in this field to apply for the MSc in Corporate Finance.

    Don’t hesitate to contact a program advisor to determine which program is best suited to your skills set and objectives.

    How do I explain my professional project?

    As part of the admissions requirements, we ask that you have a detailed, well-defined career plan.
