WHAT WE DO
Our Working Groups
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 studyOur 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.
Assessment CentreThis group 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 FinanceThe 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.
Women in Finance
While the topic of gender equality has been omnipresent in recent years, women still make up less than 15% in executive positions. Our goal is to create a community that supports growth and allows members to gain essential experience before and during their careers.
