Campaign Components


The goal of the 2010–2015 Rising Talents Campaign is to raise €30 million from private donors to finance new projects that will be used to underpin EDHEC’s growth and its international renown, to strengthen certain specialties, and a point becoming ever-more crucial for all grandes écoles to put in place an ambitious scholarship programme.

The Research Centres

Family Business Centre: a research center dedicated to family businesses.

EDHEC, founded by family firms from the north of France, has returned to its roots by creating the EDHEC Family Business Centre. The centre’s mission is to contribute, through training and research, to the dynamism of these firms, as well as to share their values with the school’s students. The centre’s research will revolve around governance, management, transmission and financing, and EDHEC will make every effort to answer family firms’ questions and meet their expectations with relevant quantitative research informed by the international perspective its campuses abroad afford it.

NewGen Talent Centre: Gaining a better understanding of the latest generations to improve recruitment

For fifteen years, companies have been dealing with the globalisation of the job market and with identifying and retaining international talent. The mission of the NewGen Talent Centre at EDHEC Business School, a hub for the most recent generations of business school graduates, is to become a centre from which to observe the behaviour and motivations of young talent and a laboratory for the identification, assessment and development of future leaders. The centre will produce surveys, as well as quantitative and qualitative studies, and it will organise roundtables on issues having to do with hiring, career opportunities and the managerial skills of recent graduates.

International Renown

In the 2012 school year EDHEC and the EDHEC-Risk Institute entered into academic partnerships with such universities as Princeton (the Operations Research and Financial Engineering Department), Yale, Stanford and Cambridge. These partnerships pave the way for new research and instructional activities. Rising Talents supports these ambitions by funding conferences, scholarships (for the PhD and other programmes) and student and faculty mobility.

Research and Teaching

The Bonduelle chair takes research in marketing at EDHEC into unexplored territory: the impact of new technologies on the management and distribution of food brands.
After all, giving tomorrow’s companies and managers the keys to an improved understanding of the socioeconomic and technological shifts that are affecting consumption habits as well as the strategies of retailers and their suppliers is one of major challenges marketing is currently responding to.

Financing courses of study

EDHEC Business School is seeking to endow both research and teaching chairs to expand its work in the specialised and interdisciplinary fields (law, management, finance, ethics, etc.) its faculty members are active in. The objective is to meet business’s needs, as well as those of the society at large, for research and teaching at all levels.

Diversity and Entrepreneurship

EDHEC4ALL: Using scholarships to promote cultural and social diversity

Awarding scholarships, whether to attract and reward talented students, to support students during their studies or to promote cultural and social diversity, has become a major issue for all institutions of higher learning.

Encouraging entrepreneurship

With the creation of business incubator (EYE, or EDHEC Young Entrepreneurs), the mission of which is to encourage business creation, entrepreneurship is once again at the centre of EDHEC’s concerns. In just three years, more than twenty-six companies in highly diverse industries have been hatched, so to speak, and more than a hundred jobs have been created.
