Edhec launches online MBA programme

Edhec Business School has launched an MBA programme that will be totally taught online. The new programme is said to offer a unique learning experience with significant academic advantages, including access to cutting-edge AI and ChatGPT education technologies that enhance knowledge and skills acquisition

Students enrolled in the 24-month programme, which will be taught entirely in English, will receive personalised support to help them reach their professional and personal development goals. By the end of the course, they will be ready to tackle technological, environmental and societal challenges to advance society and strengthen the global economy.

The online MBA, developed by Edhec Online, the school’s digital learning platform, will draw upon the synergy of Edhec’s academic research chairs, which are at the forefront of global transition issues. Academic research will feed into courses to offer learning that aligns with environmental and societal imperatives. The aim is to produce enlightened leaders who are conscious of the impact of their decisions on the world around them.

The Edhec Risk Climate Impact Institute for example, will teach online MBA students the fundamentals of green finance to create a more sustainable economy, while the Edhec criminal risks management chair will provide coursework on the mechanics of the black market and its associated risks, including trafficking, cybercrimes and money laundering. In addition, the work of the Edhec foresight innovation and transformation chair will help participants develop a long-term economic vision that considers AI advances and innovative new business models.

“Through these close collaborations with research chairs and centres, the online MBA will give future leaders the keys to understanding a complex, ever-changing world”, says Loïck Menvielle, Edhec associate professor of marketing and director of the online MBA. “By giving students access to our school’s most up-to-date academic work, we hope to enrich their perspectives and provide them with the skills to make sustainable transformation possible.”

Edhec is a founding member of the Fome alliance, comprising 12 top-ranked management schools that advance digital learning for business professionals. The new online MBA will give students access to FOME’s cutting-edge e-learning platform and provide them with an immersive experience that delivers real-world learning and understanding via consulting projects, master classes and learning expeditions.

The Edhec online MBA will help students boost their careers by offering a comprehensive, immersive and specialised curriculum. Students will benefit from the school’s academic excellence and technological advances and have the chance to specialise in specific areas of business management, such as strategy and innovation or climate finance.

Students will receive personalised career counselling and the opportunity to participate in the Lead 360 programme, which strengthens leadership skills and encourages personal development via coaching sessions, workshops and face-to-face meetings with Edhec researchers and faculty members.
