GETT Europe degree offers training in technology, innovation, & sustainability in three European capitals


EDHEC Business School, ESMT Berlin and Imperial College Business School team up to offer a master’s degree that focuses on global economic transformations and the management skills needed to navigate them.

Three of Europe’s top business schools are joining forces to offer a new Global Economic Transformation & Technology (GETT) master’s degree that will allow students to study in Paris, Berlin, and London, where they will discover three dynamic cultures and entrepreneurial ecosystems.

Starting in the Fall of 2024, students enrolled in the three-year GETT Europe master’s programme will study how technological advances are rapidly changing the business world and what they can do as frontline managers to ensure that these changes meet ESG goals and mandates. Students will also learn how to manage multicultural teams and efficiently work in global corporate structures, skills in great demand today.

Transcending global barriers 

Students will have access to courses from partner institutions across various disciplines, including Risk Modeling, Predictive Analysis, AI and Society, Design Thinking for Innovation and Impact, and Technology and Innovation Management. The GETT Europe follows in the footsteps of the GETT USA-Asia, which EDHEC launched in 2017 with the University of California at Berkeley in California, USA, and Sungkyunkwan University SKK GSB in Seoul, South Korea.

“Following the success of our GETT USA-Asia programme on three continents, we are delighted to launch the GETT Europe, a comprehensive and demanding hybrid curriculum that meets students’ new expectations,” says Tristan-Pierre Maury, Director of the Grande Ecole and Master of Sciences at EDHEC Business School. “Thanks to an alliance between three of Europe’s leading institutions, this programme offers a unique experience of international immersion and cutting-edge training to understand today’s technological challenges.”

Today’s youth are eager to discover the world, including its diverse languages and cultures. They also want to tackle urgent environmental and technological challenges. At the same time, corporations are keen to hire managers with a global view and solid skills in data sciences and entrepreneurship. The GETT Europe meets these demands by exposing students to three languages, three cultures, and three tech-innovation ecosystems.

Shaping future leaders in management and innovation

In addition to learning on three vibrant campuses in the heart of Paris, Berlin and London, students will be exposed to the lightning-fast speed of technological advancements and the mounting pressures of environmental challenges. They will develop an international network of professional contacts and benefit from all three institutions’ career centres and alumni activities.

GETT Europe students will start their experience on EDHEC’s Paris campus and then move East to discover the ESMT Berlin campus. In the third year of their studies, students will arrive on the Imperial College Business School campus, participating in courses offered as part of that institution’s Master’s in Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Management.

“The GETT Europe programme is a bold step forward in our mission to nurture leaders who thrive in a complex, global economy and embrace an entrepreneurial mindset,” says Leila Guerra, Vice Dean (Education) at Imperial College Business School. “This partnership exemplifies our commitment to excellence and innovation and offers an immersion into three of Europe’s leading cities as well as expanding the frontiers of technology, entrepreneurship and management. Whilst at Imperial, students will be empowered to become the next generation of venture founders, venture builders, innovators, and investors to create and grow new business opportunities while considering the implications of social and environmental factors.”

GETT Europe graduates will receive a Master’s in Management from EDHEC, a Certificate from ESMT Berlin, and an MSc in Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Management from Imperial College Business School.

“We are looking forward to deepening our collaboration with our long-term partner EDHEC and welcoming students from this prestigious master program to Berlin from 2025 onwards,” says Roland Siegers, Director of External Engagement, ESMT Berlin. “In Berlin, students will benefit from our brand-new suite of specialised master programs and especially be able to deepen their knowledge of analytics and AI.”
