The Programme: learning & experiencing

Experience to build the right Skills

At emlyon business school, we believe that the key to the success of any manager in any organization today is having the right entrepreneurial mind-set. You need to know how to create from within, assess opportunities and risks, and rally the necessary resources to make things happen. The program's focus on entrepreneurship will help you develop these behavioural skills you will be able to use throughout your entire career. Classes, seminars, projects and various student initiatives will appeal to your creativity and your ability to take an idea and translate it into tangible value for the organisation you choose to work for.

Teaching and learning methods that reflect business realities

Our thematic clusters further enhance our insights and close relationships with the business world, focusing on three key themes that span the boundary between content and research: Entrepreneurship & Growth, Work & Organizations, and Lifestyles & Consumption. These clusters draw on inputs from our research centers and are connected with businesses, ensuring we produce modules, publications and events that directly reflect real-world analysis work. Modules inspired by these clusters and based on feedback from businesses include: Junior Start-Ups, Corporate Evaluation Practices, E-business, Sociology of Markets and Consumption, Entrepreneurship and Business Development, Challenges of Robotics, Big Data, etc.

Our teaching and learning methods also involve practical case studies and real-world business examples. Many of our professors and teaching and learning managers are directly involved in the world of business and collaborate on chairs, once again drawing inspiration and analysis from practical, hands-on experience. Our chairs include Eco Emballages, KPMG, Apicil, Le Grand Lyon, Hutchinson, Ameris... Discover knowledge.em-lyon.com 

The New Venture Business Project (PCE)

The New Venture Business Project (called PCE) is a training module that is truly unique and gives the school its cutting edge when it comes to entrepreneurship. As well as gaining core skills in management, groups of students also have a chance to work on a virtual project and experiment with business creation. The aim of this educational and experiential exercise is to give students an opportunity to put theoretical learning in practice, and to get first taste of entrepreneurship. The PCE module covers several different disciplines, such as marketing, human resources and finance, giving students an introduction to management – especially those who have had no formal teaching in this field. The module also relies on teamwork, giving participants an all-important opportunity to get to know each other and transition seamlessly into life at school. Students embark on a wide variety of projects, from collaborative restaurants to high-tech start-ups, and cover all sectors, including those with an international flavour (e.g. services for expats in China, custom vegetable gardens for citydwellers, or hotlines for senior citizens). Those who wish to take their projects further can then use one of the various business creation support facilities that the school offers, such as the startup pathway or the business incubator.
