Program Description:
EDHEC Business School

EDHEC Business School is located on two different campuses in two different cities of either Lille or Nice, France. It is a French Business school affiliated to the Catholic University in Lille. Around 350 international students, on both campuses, are enrolled in EDHEC every year. Both of the locations are rich in history and culture and are an urban hub within their respective region of France. Transportation around both is very accessible and easy to use to navigate the cities when not in class!  In addition to being located in two historic cities, EDHEC also offers lots of student associations for exchange students to become more involved.

Lille Campus:
EDHEC chose to build their newest location on 21 acres in the heart of Greater Lille metropolis. It is home to the Business Management track. The campus was designed with international travel in mind, being just minutes away from both of Lille’s train stations. Lille is the fourth largest metropolitan area in France and is right near France’s border with Belgium. This location is home to the Business Management track.

Nice Campus:
EDHEC’s Nice campus overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and is near the Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport. This campus is home to the Financial Economics track. Nice is the second-largest French city on the Mediterranean coast after Marseille.

Texas A&M University decides how many hours should be taken by their student. When looking at their courses in the Business Management and Financial Economics Tracks, note that EDHEC titles their ‘upper undergraduate’ students ‘Master 1’ and their graduate students ‘Master 2’. Pick courses accordingly. EDHEC offered French language courses to visiting students free of charge. They are available on both the Lille and Nice campus. 
The International Student Office offers an Orientation Seminar which includes social activities and informational meetings as well as provides all of your prearrival information students need to know.


At the Nice Campus, only off-campus housing is available. Housing assistance is provided only if you contact residence Azur campus 3 Giletta or Agency Domus.

One of the benefits of participating in a reciprocal exchange is their affordability. Overall costs are comparable to studying in College Station with the main difference in costs coming from travel related expenses and the exchange rate. Please keep in mind that because you are enrolled at A&M, your regular tuition and fees will be paid at A&M just as if you were taking classes on campus. Additionally, students will be provided with the necessary information for them to make arrangements for all other expenses.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

“Going abroad was the best decision I have ever made. I recommend it to every student. The experience I had is one that is hard to describe in words. The friendships and connections I made with people in foreign countries are ones that will help me not only in my career but in my personal life as well. The amount of culture and adventures I got to experience are ones that I will never forget.”
Alisa, Mays Reciprocal Exchange Student at EDHEC Business School
