EDHEC Launches New Global Degree In Partnership With ESMT Berlin & Imperial College

The new GETT Europe Master’s degree from EDHEC gives students the chance to learn about tech and transformation on three major European campuses

Tue Jan 9 2024

Today, EDHEC Business School announced that it is launching a brand-new master’s degree in partnership with ESMT Berlin and Imperial College Business School.

The Global Economic Transformation & Technology (GETT) Europe Master’s Degree is a three-year program designed to introduce students to the technologies of the future while informing them about the environmental challenges that threaten that future. It will start enrolling students in fall 2024.

Here’s a quick overview of the new GETT Europe program.

What will the GETT Europe master’s degree offer?

The GETT Europe Master’s program focuses on providing students with the skills to pilot global projects and manage multicultural teams in an ever-evolving tech landscape with environmental challenges left, right, and center.

These skills are more important than ever in 2024: experts predict that AI, sustainability, and project management skills will be the most in-demand for employers this year.

To do this, the program allows students to study in three major European capitals: Paris, Berlin, and London. 

This means experiencing three unique startup and tech ecosystems, but also learning from three world-leading faculties, accessing three career support networks, and joining three alumni communities. It could as much as treble students’ career opportunities.

To supercharge students’ experience, the program offers courses in innovative topics, including:

  • Risk modeling
  • Predictive analysis
  • AI and society 
  • Design thinking for innovation and impact 
  • Technology and innovation management

By the end of the three-year program, students will earn a Master’s in Management from EDHEC, a Certificate from ESMT Berlin, and an MSc in Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Management from Imperial College Business School. 

Learning about startups and innovative technology

The different learning environments on offer at each business school offer students insights into different aspects of innovation.

At Imperial, for example, students will focus on innovation in entrepreneurship and finance.

“Whilst at Imperial, students will be empowered to become the next generation of venture founders, venture builders, innovators, and investors to create and grow new business opportunities while considering the implications of social and environmental factors,” says Leila Guerra, vice dean of education at Imperial College Business School.

In Berlin, ESMT professors will school GETT students on cutting-edge technologies.

“Students will benefit from our brand-new suite of specialized master programs and especially be able to deepen their knowledge of analytics and AI,” says Roland Siegers, director of external engagement, ESMT Berlin.

On EDHEC’s Paris campus, students will be exposed to a thriving entrepreneurial community. EDHEC Entrepreneurs is the second-largest program partner at Station F, the world’s largest startup campus.

Background to the GETT Europe master’s degree

EDHEC Business School, ESMT Berlin, and Imperial College Business School are all top-ranked institutions. The Master’s in Management programs at EDHEC and ESMT are ranked in the top 20 worldwide by the Financial Times, and Imperial College was named the University of the Year for graduate employment in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2024.

The launch of the GETT Europe program follows the success of EDHEC’s existing USA-Asia GETT program. 

This global master’s degree was launched in partnership with the University of California at Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and Sungkyunkwan University’s Graduate School of Business in Seoul.

It has a strong track record that bodes well for its European counterpart: a massive 92% of GETT USA-Asia grads land international careers after graduating.

Baptiste Martin used the program to launch a consulting career and recommends it to others.

“I am glad that I did the course because it aligned well with my interest in innovation, and it helped put me on the right path,” he says.

Thanks to the GETT Europe program, we are likely to see more grads like Baptiste entering the workforce in 2027.
