A Consortium recognized expert in Entrepreneurship

As the goal of the program is to prepare young innovative graduates to become entrepreneurial leaders in a global setting, the Global Entrepreneurship Program draws from the know-how of three leading institutions to educate tomorrow’s entrepreneurs. 

emlyon business school

Devoted to lifelong learning for entrepreneurial and international management, this European Business School operates around the values of the “early maker” concept which was born 10 years ago around the Do-It-Yourself principle. Today, being a maker means controlling your destiny, being the actor and entrepreneur of your existence, and moving from Do-It-Yourself to Do-It-Together in a spirit of collaboration. This concept reflects emlyon business school’s vision of an entrepreneur: an individual who tries, experiments, makes mistakes, starts again and learns as they go. 

  • emlyon business school’s Incubator is an essential structure designed to help students and alumni create their own business. Since 1984 the incubator has helped launch 1 350 start-up projects of which 85% have survived after 5 years and has created 11 000 jobs. 
  • Since 1984 more than 550 companies have been created via emlyon’s Center for Entrepreneurship.
  • Successful launch of the World Entrepreneurship Forum, first think tank dedicated to the role of the entrepreneur founded by emlyon business school, the Singapore Institution Action Community for Entrepreneurship, Nanyang Technological University, Hangzhou City and Zhejiang University in China in 2008.
