Admission Procedure

In order to  access the admission results for the third selection session, click here!

The Admissions Office functions as the first point of contact for all applicants once they have submitted their online application. If you would like to have the contact details of the right person to help you with any questions regarding the programme or the selection procedure, you can create your personal space and obtain full contact details on your emlyon business school dashboard.

Once enrolled, international students will join the students selected via a French undergraduate diploma and the Bachelor students selected via the French system of "classes préparatoires" and who have already studied one year at emlyon business school.
These three selection processes are highly selective, and only an average one applicant out of 7 will have the opportunity to join the programme.
 
The International Admissions Service (SAI) at the Paris-Ile de France Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIP) organises the recruitment of students holding a non-French degree for an admission in the Master in Management - Grande Ecole programmes offered by 5 French Management Schools: Audencia Nantes, SKEMA Business School, emlyon business school, ESCP Europe and HEC Paris.
