International students in 2013/2014
My time at EDHEC had been very wonderful. I feel blessed to be given an opportunity to do my exchange here. Although the teaching method is different, I feel that it is very practical and relevant for the working environment. Conferences and seminars by high profile individuals are very beneficial for the students.
The accommodation is amazing, all the professors and officers are very nice and helpful. Huirui Z —EDHEC Nice 2010/11 Shanghai Jiaotong University, Antai College
