Well this answer is coming in really late, but for people who may still be interested, ill give my 2 cents.
EDHEC is a great school, its Masters in Finance is especially well known and ranked very high( it was 2nd world wide last i checked) so its a great school when it comes to studying Finance, but that said if you make it into HEC's MiM or any other program....i would suggest you to take up the HEC offer.
Why? Well there are a couple of reasons:
1) HEC has an amazing recognition in France and is also very well known internationally, so you can benefit from its brand name
2) HEC is one of the 3 top grand ecoles of France (HEC, ESSEC and ESCP). All these 3 schools have an excellent reputation for business studies and are frequented by all tier 1 firms from all sectors may it be Banking, consulting , marketing etc. So if you plan to start working for a big firm, you can be sure they actively recruit from HEC.
3) Proximity to Paris allows you access to many networking events, company organized get togethers, conferences and alum meets. Also many company HQ's are based in Paris. This can really help your networking.
So hope the answer helped.
