WHAT WE DO

Our Working Groups

Publishing Divison

In the Publishing Division, we aim at writing finance-related articles about market news and M&A deals for example so that students can display their understanding of the financial world and share it with others. We also publish equity researchs, which is a good practice for those who want to work in the related financial areas.

Case Study & Assessement center

Case study & Assessment Centre

Our Case Study Working Group aims at cracking Corporate Finance related cases in order to train our member for bank competitions and tests that could be given during professional interviews. The other objective is to build a unique and valuable network each other can rely on throughout his studies at EDHEC and his professional life. 

 

This group also works together to prepare for an essential portion of the interview process, the assessment center. Many top finance companies use assessment centers as part of the hiring process and being skilled in this area is essential. We will meet roughly once per month and meetings will consist of a focus on one of the evaluation criteria used in the majority of assessment centers. This type of practice is key to being successful during an interview process, having the time to learn in a low pressure situation like this can be the difference.

Sustainable Finance

Sustainable Finance

The goal of the EDHEC Sustainable Finance Group is to provide students with a better understanding of the Sustainable Finance industry and its impact on financial markets and corporate finance practices. The Group gathers every two weeks to discuss recent developments in Sustainable Finance, and their relevance in financing the transition towards a low-carbon economy. Every session consists of three parts which form the pillars of the working group. First, an in-depth presentation is given by working group members on the topic of the session, this is followed by a discussion where group members discuss and select the key questions that need to be addressed. The last part of the session consists of an interaction, a (video) call or a live session, with an industry expert. In this last part, the working group tries to get answers to the remaining questions and gain more in-depth practical knowledge. Topics covered range from Sustainable Capital Markets, Sustainable Project Finance, Thematic Funds and ETF’s to ESG investing and ESG factors in valuations.

CFA preparation

CFA preparation

In the CFA preparation group we focus on discussing about the topics covered in the CFA Exam, such as Quantitative Methods, Economics, Financial Analysis and Portfolio Management. In particular, the group focuses on learning the most important contents about the exam by creating group sessions in which to practice actual exam exercises. Members are stimulated to actively participate in discussions by preparing the material before the session. Furthermore, a session with a CFA Chartholder is organized to talk about current topics that affect the financial sector and also to network with an experienced professional in the financial industry itself.
