Alumni network of the Global BBA

The influence of a leading Grande Ecole network

Every Grande Ecole has a alumni association but emlyon business school goes further: with emlyon business school alumni network, every student becomes a member of the alumni network from the moment they set foot on campus.

  • Networking through the alumni network – this allows you to get in touch and stay in contact with other graduates, whatever your professional or international plans, and to benefit from the many connections that are already in place (business clubs, country correspondents, meetings and events, etc.)
  • Careers support all the way through your professional life (workshops, coaching, exchange with experts, access to job offers, online CVs, etc.)
  • Life-long training thanks to emlyon executive development, the school’s continuous professional development subsidiary. Every three years you can take advantage of a free training course in order to update your skills and knowledge.
