This is a French led initiative by core faculty at EDHEC. This specialisation has a strong emphasis on multinational development in Asia. It uses business cases from the luxury and retail sectors, and concludes with a focus on supply chains which reconcile procurement and logistics with brand and marketing priorities. Students can gain better awareness of how businesses in Singapore treat these topics by taking part in the business trip to Singapore. Their local base for the trip is EDHEC’s Singapore campus which is run by EDHEC Risk Institute Asia.

After completing this specialisation, participants will be able to:
♦  Understand the key drivers of business growth in both mature and emerging East Asian markets.
