EDHEC Business School is involved in academic research and was recently cited as one of the premier school in France for financial and risk management research.

The EDHEC-Risk and Asset Management (RAM) centre produces hedge funds style indexes, which are similar in purpose to CSFB/Tremont indexes on its website. It publishes a return based style analysis ranking of European mutual funds with Europerformance. The EDHEC-RAM is sponsored by financial organizations such as Euronext, Lyxor AM and Eurex.

EDHEC conducts applied research in the following fields:

Finance: Created in 2001 this centre does research in asset management, most particularly in the organisation and improvement of risk management.

Accounting and financial analysis: Created in 2006, the EDHEC Financial Analysis and Accounting Research Centre works on the choice of discount rate in company valuation and in particular on the integration of systemic accounting risk.

Economics: Since February 2006, EDHEC has had an economics research team focused on public policy and state reform. This team works on four broad themes: financing and reform of the welfare state, labor policies and competition, evaluation of sovereign risk and optimal management of the public debt and European budgetary governance.

Legal: The Legal EDHEC Research Centre has Legal Performance and Company Competitiveness as a subtitle. At the heart of the Centre is the notion of legal performance and its variations.

The Edhec Alumni association unites over 30 000 graduates and future graduates present in 120 countries. The association has four main duties, namely to represent its members on EDHEC’s Board of Governors and Steering Committee, to serve as a link between the different EDHEC communities and generations, to provide assistance to alumni throughout their careers and to help develop and promote the School.
