that drives business performance for future generations,

through its research, its training and the work of its graduates ”

EDHEC has always considered that a quest for excellence is useful when it is applied to the professional world, benefits society worldwide and is accessible to students.
Its historic "Research for Business" positioning and the development of innovative fields of excellence enable EDHEC to offer companies collaborative projects that have an impact on today's challenges: Sustainable Finance, Innovation, Diversity, Health, Tech & Humanities, etc...

It is through the development of interdisciplinary initiatives that we will contribute to the major challenges facing society.

Teaching must enable students to build a knowledge base and to think by doing, in order to better explore, experiment and decide.

EDHEC has been a pioneer in its teaching methods by developing an innovative approach that puts the company at the heart of the classroom and helps students acquire skills and behaviours through their "Learning by Doing" experience. 

Created 10 years ago, the Teaching Factory*, is a co-construction approach with 30 partner companies, 20 professors, and 2,200 students who work with managers on concrete cases.

The partnership between Butagaz and EDHEC is virtuous, evolutionary and meaningful. We collaborate closely with a first-rate academic team, guided by the search for impact for our company, the school and the students. In concrete terms, this partnership allows us to delegate certain exploration projects to groups of students, to benefit from cross-fertilization of expertise, to mix theoretical and empirical knowledge, and to recruit talent. As an alumnus, it is a great joy to have been able to actively contribute to weaving this strong link between my company and EDHEC: I therefore invite you to do the same!
