EDHEC benefits from an extensive business network throughout France and Europe with companies and consultants who hire our students and provide professors with action research topics at the heart of our learning model. Excursions are planned to take advantage of local partnerships on the French Riviera and programme themes are woven into the numerous question/answer possibilities afforded during these special up-close business visits.
Summer courses are designed to integrate our corporate partners so that course contents directly apply to the discussion of business strategy and brand development. Some smaller business excursions are planned but multinational players, in particular, provide a programme focus allowing for an in-depth view of the business challenges that the programme seeks to investigate.
This year's sponsors and partners for the action-based research learning design are the multinational players located right on the French Riviera. On-site visits allow students to ask questions see operations first-hand and observe business in action.

"Globalizing Europe provides international students with the opportunity to undertake intensive study on the European Community in a short summer format taking place on France’s Nice Riviera Campus. Now in its sixth year, the programme has been training young managers and business students around the world about the institutional, historical, and strategic makings of the European Union. As a specialist in intercultural communication, I believe that the international learning cohorts that come together for this multi-disciplinary intensive track benefit from experiential and topical knowledge of European and world cultures that is unforgettable.”.
— Anne E. Witte
