Why should I study here?

The future of today’s and tomorrow’s students is being built in a global and digital world. A world operating in a knowledge-based economy of innovation where transformations and disruptions are constantly remodeling factors that influence competitiveness and growth. An economy of relationships where intense collaboration and network connections are the new keys to the creation of shared value. An economy of immediacy where speed, reactivity, and adaptability confer unprecedented competitive advantages. In order to face these challenges, Emlyon Business School is anticipating, adapting, and transforming educational models and thus offering new modes of learning. The maker movement was born 10 years ago around the Do-It-Yourself principle. Initially a concept that applied to DIY enthusiasts, it gradually spread to the world of digital firms and start-ups, uniting a whole community of creators, artisans, entrepreneurs, artists, and educators in its wake. It signaled a transformation from invention to innovation, from prototyping to the industrialization of a brilliant idea.

Today, being a maker means controlling your destiny, being the actor and entrepreneur of your own journey, and moving from Do-It-Yourself to Do-It-Together in a spirit of collaboration. This concept reflects our vision of the entrepreneur: an individual who tries something out, experiments, makes mistakes, starts again, and learns from the process. An entrepreneur must now combine this dimension of doing and doing quickly with the ability to anticipate, mix, and nurture ideas; glimpse possibilities; and develop them before anyone else. With our Global BBA, we invite you to become an early maker, taking the best from our model of excellence and drawing on different fields in order to achieve your goals and deliver.Entrepreneurs are makers; we make entrepreneurs.

What are the admissions criteria?

Rolling admissions are used, and applications are accepted until June.  Application decisions are made based on grades, English proficiency, a Skype interview, and the applicant's e-portfolio.

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
