Le campus de Lyon - Ecully

The Global BBA program is to open in Lyon-Ecully

In September 2022, emlyon business school shall welcome on its campus in Lyon-Ecully, its first high-school graduate cohort, as part of its full-English Global BBA. Students opting for the French track shall start their program in Saint-Etienne. This new set-up shall generate significant synergies between student cohorts on the campus in Lyon-Ecully and those in Saint-Etienne: via common pedagogical activities or thanks to a particularly abundant student life in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.

The Global BBA is a multi-campus program providing students with great mobility in France and internationally all throughout their program, thanks to the various campuses of emlyon (Lyon-Ecully, Saint-Étienne, Shanghai, Paris, Bhubaneswar and Mumbai), and some one-hundred partner universities across the world. Global BBA students from the campuses in Lyon-Ecully, Saint-Etienne and Paris, will all be able to opt for an apprenticeship, to carry out their 4th year.

The “grade de licence” (bachelor) is renewed for 4 years

The Global BBA of emlyon is one of the 6 bachelors’ in management sciences, out of the 23 which applied this year, to have obtained their “grade de licence” to be renewed for a period of 4 years. The Commission grants the “grade de licence” to the most demanding bachelor’s complying with high-quality criteria.

emlyon’s Global BBA was most particularly distinguished for the following key strengths:

  • Students are introduced to research right from the first year of their program, thanks to a field survey carried out to address organization issues;
  • A powerful international immersion, from 6 months to 3 years, according to what students choose to do, on the campuses of emlyon abroad or via academic exchanges;
  • An action-oriented pedagogy allowing to multiply practical experiences and international projects to be carried out all throughout the program, in direct contact with companies from various lines of business;
  • A student training to social and environmental issues, with students strongly involved in the positive impact on the planet and on Society, of responsible commitment projects, permeating into the program’s association life.
