This review is for EDHEC
Program September Intake Class of
Class of 2018
One of the main reasons I chose the EDHEC MBA was becuase of the shorter duration of the programme as I didn't want to (and couldn't afford) to take too long a break. It's a 10 month programme and basically has:
- core courses (pretty much the same as most schools I looked at)
- a specialisation track (you choose one out of 4) which runs for a full month
- mba project (I chose to do the consulting project but there are a few choices - like internship, academic exchange, business plan when I was there)
- 2 business trips, one to South Africa (Sustainability) and one as part of the track, so goes to different location depending on the track you choose.
You cover everything in the 10 months so it is very intense, and at times can be frustrating as you move so quickly through the different subjects, but as I said, I wanted a shorter programme, so I shouldn't complain!
I wanted to get more exposure in terms of corporate strategy and finance and honestly have a new challenge. My goal post-MBA was to be able to take next step in my career progression and change industry. I already worked in an international role so the fact that the class is very diverse was a bonus too. In fact the class diversity (nationalities, experience, background) proved to be one of the best things about the MBA experience. As the class size is pretty small, you really get to know the class and you get to learn so much from them - plus for the most part, we are all still in touch.
The final plus is the location. The campus is right on the sea, opposite Nice airport. It's a stunning place to take a break from work, although i can't say it was a relaxing 10 months!
If you already have quite a bit of experience, then I think the 10 month length is great and the class is a little more experienced than some other schools. The fact that the classes are small (around 50 people) means the school has quite a personal feel and you build really strong relationships with the class very quickly.
Overall, I had an exceptional time and the duration, international diversity and personalised experience fit perfectly to what I was looking for.
