In their own words

“Today, flexibility, personalisation and availability anytime/anywhere are central aspects of the EDHEC student experience. LinkedIn Learning appeared to be the right tool to reach those goals, allowing us to offer new possibilities of online courses development and giving our students the opportunity to upgrade their courses by developing hybrid skills.”

Emmanuelle Houet
Digital Learning Experience Manager at EDHEC PiLab

“With the current fast-paced changes and the ubiquity of technology in our personal and professional lives, we know that our students will need to develop their skills throughout their careers. 

“Our decision to offer LinkedIn Learning to all students and faculty members is based on two essential pillars.

“The first is to offer quality training that enriches our existing academic programmes. For example, offering MBA students the LinkedIn Learning Excel training course before the Data Analysis course allows my course to start from day one with an emphasis on critical thinking and data mining, without spending time on learning how to use Excel. 

“The second pillar is to develop the habit of lifelong training, offering possibilities beyond those available in our academic calendar and beyond our courses. Our students and professors have responded positively and the availability of LinkedIn Learning on ATAWAD is particularly appreciated in the current global pandemic situation.”
