As well as expanding its network of academic partners, EDHEC has also bolstered its international presence through the arrival of two new country managers, in China (Shanghai) and the USA (Los Angeles). The two additions round out the team of four country managers already present in London, New York, Bombay and Singapore. Their role is specifically to develop EDHEC’s relations with its academic partners, and more generally to strengthen the School’s relations with businesses and alumni, and to raise the profile of the EDHEC brand in their respective markets.

 “These new partnerships underscore EDHEC’s growing international momentum and profile. Through this network of academic partners of the highest standing, our students are able to strengthen their inter-cultural skills and agility, and to acquire the international vision vital for overcoming the challenges of tomorrow’s business world”, explains Emmanuel Métais, Dean of EDHEC Business School.

 “Our international strategy is geared to enabling our students to deal with difference and handle other pedagogical models employed within top institutions worldwide”, underlines Richard Perrin, EDHEC International Director.
