History, Affiliations and Rankings

Entrepreneurs from the north of France launched EDHEC Business School in 1906. "EDHEC" is an acronym for "École des Hautes Etudes Commerciales du Nord," which translates to "School of Higher Education in Business Administration from the North." Motte Duthoit, a leading textile manufacturer and the mayor of Roubaix, France, purchased the land that today houses EDHEC's headquarters, known as "La campagne." At La Campagne, legendary architect Gréber created a Manor house in the Anglo-Norman style to Motte Duthoit's specifications. The Manor, which was once the residence of the Motte family, currently functions as a training centre for EDHEC Executive Education. EDHEC holds the triple accreditation from  EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS),  Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and  Association of MBAs (AMBA).  EDHEC is among the greatest business schools in France and beyond.
