EDHEC to hold fifth EDHEC Research Day

Related Topics

EDHEC Business School is holding the fifth edition of the EDHEC Research Day in London on 28 June at the Victoria Park Plaza. The focus will be on the influence of academic research on business and the economy.

The practical relevance of research and curricula in business schools has often been debated. A recent AACSB report (2007) questioned the contributions of business schools’ research to students, to practitioners, and to society as a whole.

For the last ten years, EDHEC Business School has been working in accordance with its own research strategy, which stresses the need for relevance. EDHEC research policy sets out several objectives. The research done by our professors and researchers must abide by international criteria for academic excellence, but it must also contribute to the quality of our programmes and be relevant to business and, broadly speaking, to the overall economy.

EDHEC Research Day gives EDHEC the opportunity to illustrate the outcomes of this policy and to present some of its experiences and recent research to practitioners, business people, and journalists.

The morning will be broken down into three plenary sessions, during which professors, research engineers from EDHEC Business School, and professionals will illustrate why and how academic research can influence business practices: Academic research and pension fund management; The economic and financial impact of regulation; Why do professionals need a PhD?

The afternoon will be dedicated to workshops in which members of EDHEC research centres will present recent research: Finance and Economics; Law and Accounting.
