An association to keep an eye on in 2019!

CCDU EDHEC, abbreviation of Chinese Career Development Union of EDHEC Business School, is a student association dedicated to serving all Chinese alumni worldwide and those who have interest in China. Founded in 2015, CCDU, a career-oriented student association and the first official Chinese community established by EDHEC, is focusing on providing career related services including tailored consultation, experience-sharing seminar and after-work activities.







Slogan & Mission

Our slogan is “mutual assistance, sharing, and promotion”, focusing on the effective sharing of experience and information. Our mission is to consolidate Alumni resource and build a commercial bridge between China and France. We believe that China + France = Chance.



We serve all EDHEC students:

  • As long as new students get officially enrolled, a WeChat group for the use of communication and hospitality will be created until they come to France. At the same time, our "EDHEC Application Handbook" and "VISA Application Handbook" enable students to quickly understand the application process, visa, and answer their inquiries in real time.


  • Right after they come to France, CCDU will hold a welcome exchange meeting, such as Mid-Autumn Festival moon cake and other activities. The "CCDU French Life Guide" is updated every year to ensure all Chinese students a seamless transition to French life. Professionally, CCDU organizes various forms of experience sharing seminar in which Alumni will come to share their working experience and bring valuable insight into firms and industries.


  • Subsequent to graduation, Alumni who have stayed in France will be contacted by us. Thanks to our Networking events and outdoor activities in Paris, Chinese community are now better integrating into French culture, with more and more French getting to know about Chinese.


Future expectations and prospects:

CCDU will insist on improving the professional performance of Chinese students. At present, the cohesive work of the students in the school has basically achieved initial results. In the future, we plan to enrich our services for students by building more school-enterprise cooperation opportunities.
