Edhec: school with a mission – relevance
Edhec Business School, one of France’s prestigious grandes écoles, has a mission that can be summed up in one word: relevance.
The school’s objective, says Olivier Oger, its dean, is to “return to its roots and be useful to companies”.
This means, he says, providing companies with relevant research and offering its 6,000 degree students an education that will give them the best possible advantage in the competitive jobs market.
The school stresses that relevance underpins all it does, particularly at its research centres, for example the Edhec Risk Institute – a centre for applied finance, which was established in 2001.
