The Challenges ranking is based on a range of criteria measuring excellence and power, and which include the quality of student recruitment: the BBA programme has the highest proportion of undergraduates awarded Very Good or Good distinctions in their baccalaureate results (65% of Year 1 students). In budget terms, EDHEC ranks first for all bachelor programmes whatever their length and second among French grandes écoles, just behind HEC. Challenges’ analysis also takes account of the school’s international profile and standing, graduate salaries and teaching faculty qualifications.
These results vindicate EDHEC’s strategic choices and particularly our status of public interest not-for-profit association and our focus on developing students through strong interaction with businesses throughout the duration of their studies. These features are genuine strengths in a fast-transforming world.
“This first place confirms the excellence of our students and justifies our investment in the programme. We are proud of the success of our students and alumni, and of our increasing international development.”
Underlines Alessia Di Domenico, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies
The EDHEC International BBA is a four-year programme combining academic excellence, professional experience (up to 18 months), and international immersion (100% English-language track) in world top 15 institutions like UCLA and NTU Singapore.
