The EDHEC and Embassy of France in India co-financed scholarship was established in 2014 and is awarded to Indian students with excellent academic records who meet admissions qualifications for EDHEC’s MSc programmes, including specialisations in Marketing Management, International Accounting & Finance, and Strategy & Organisation Consultancy, among others. The value of the scholarship is roughly 21,500 euros and includes health and medical coverage and access to student housing.
