Learn at one of Europe's frontrunners in entrepreneurship

What Grant, Graduate 2009, says about Entrepreneurship.
He created his own company in 2010.

emlyon business school is recognized as the European frontrunner in the field of Entrepreneurship, which shows particularly within the full-time MBA program.

Throughout this program, you will not only learn how to identify interesting business opportunities but also acquire the competencies you need to exploit them profitably.
The capacity to spot opportunities, take initiatives and to get things done is what will make you a successful entrepreneurial leader in today’s global business environment. This is valid whether you plan to work as a high-level manager within an existing company or are planning to set up your own.

Full-time MBA participants are exposed to entrepreneurship in diverse situations:

World Entrepreneurship Forum

The World Entrepreneurship Forum is the world’s leading think tank devoted to entrepreneurs as  key creators of wealth and social justice. An emlyon business school initiative, it is a community of 250 members from 70 countries who meet every year to find entrepreneurial solutions to the world’s most pressing issues.

Joao Reginatto from Brazil, International MBA participant 2012/2013, attended the World Entrepreneurship last October. Watch the video and see what he says about entrepreneurship !

#1 Incubator in France

The emlyon business school Incubator will naturally enable participants to share experience and feedback with stakeholders involved, including but never limited to moments with business angels, incubator teams and founders who will help them understand how the incubator proceeds, apprehend the model and consider applying it to their own project (current or future project).

Dedicated "new venture" course

New venture is the “red thread” of the MBA program, as it starts early October with a company creation and concludes with final presentations in March. The best team is selected for business case competitions and the whole cohort supports them. This course integrates a marketing plan so as to provide participants the most comprehensive complete toolkit.

Specialization courses dedicated to entrepreneurship

Participants who want to go even further than the «new venture» course offered in the core courses can choose among a wide range of electives dedicated to entrepreneurship, for instance: entrepreneurial finance, marketing of innovation, corporate entrepreneurship…

Business Plan competition

During the year, a group of participants have the opportunity to take part in worldwide entrepreneurial competitions. The outcome is an outstanding experience (learning process by doing, teamwork), not only for the winners but for all the teams involved.
