Depending on your areas of concentration and interests, you will enroll in either EDHEC Lille campus for courses in Business Management or in EDHEC Nice campus for courses in Finance.

Lille, the largest city in northern France, has a rich history with Flemish roots. The once industrial city now boasts many cultural attractions such as museums, restaurants, and shopping, as well as its own metro system.

Nice, France's fifth largest city, is located on the French Riviera and features beaches, art museums and fine dining. The city traces its history back to the Roman Empire and ruins of the ancient city of Cemenelum still remain.
