École Supérieure de Management de l'Entreprise (ÉSPEME)

École Supérieure de Management de l'Entreprise (ÉSPEME)-EDHEC Business School is one of the top schools in Europe. France is the ideal location to study international business as it borders Italy and Monaco, and serves as a midway point between Barcelona and Milan. Students may choose course from any of the following areas: Business, Marketing, Communication, and Human Resources.

ÉSPEME-EDHEC Business School has two campus locations: Lille and Nice.

LILLE is just a half hour from Brussels, one hour from Paris, and 1 hour and 40 minutes from London. The city has a dense economic fabric which has successfully adapted to today’s world, and where some of the country’s most dynamic business are now located. Lille is home to 14 engineering schools, 4 business schools, 340 research laboratories, the largest medical faculty in France, a law faculty as well as a vibrant and flourishing cultural life.

NICE is the fifth largest city in France and focuses much of its energy on catering to international business and tourism. With the second largest airport in France, it is not far from the fertile plains of Lombardy and has close links with this region. With its eyes firmly fixed on the future, Nice offers its students the resources and opportunities available at Sophia-Antipolis, the French capital of new technologies. With the Intercontinental Track, the growing number of MSc programs and a summer school for foreign students, the campus in Nice is expanding rapidly.
