Admissions

Admission GBBA

Students whose mother-tongue is French must apply through the French competitive exam procedure.

The admissions procedure is highly selective and demanding. Nevertheless, as emlyon business school aims to go beyond excellence, we pay great attention in our selection process to all the details and factors that could be indicative of your future potential. Our efforts do not limit themselves to selecting the best students; our responsibility is also to imagine how you, as an individual, can develop the potential that will enable you to exceed your own expectations while meeting the expectations of future recruiters.

The selective process is a challenge that can also represent a new start for you. We are looking for future makers, and this does not always mean being top of the class, as we know from experience.
