About Global BBA at emlyon business school

Choosing what to study after high school is an important first step towards your future professional life. You have to begin thinking about your future career and employability without necessarily knowing exactly which fields of activity you want to work in or which ones correspond to your personal strengths.

The Global BBA is a four-year course of study which will allow you to put your future career options in perspective: acquiring the necessary knowledge, developing key skills and learning about yourself in a professional environment. Our goal is to offer you the best opportunities for your personality and potential.

Students who choose to study with us share our philosophy of learning and development - it’s all about preparing future entrepreneurs.  This means allowing you to achieve your full potential, develop your curiosity and openness to the world, a desire to learn, and willingness to contribute in a responsible way whilst gaining the methods and know-how that will allow you to thrive in professional contexts.

Innovation goes hand in hand with the entrepreneurial mindset and plays a key role with emlyon business school through the use of new tools, methods and techniques, but primarily through promoting a different way of learning. We take a hands-on pedagogical approach, creating practice exercises, simulations and group projects that will require the use of new technologies as a means to an end, never as an end in itself.

The programme is focused on preparing you  for operational management and inspired by the makers philosophy. Following your secondary education or any further short courses of study you may have undertaken, the Global BBA will be able to transform you from a pupil into a student by teaching you a whole new way of learning.

The different stages of the course have been designed to gradually widen your horizons, ensuring that you are able to function in an English-speaking environment, gain real experience, including international experience, and participate in careers workshops. Naturally you will receive plenty of support, taking half of your courses with our permanent teaching staff and the other half with professionals who, as well as ensuring you acquire knowledge and methodology, can offer a personalised approach and help you understand how to put each pedagogical unit of the course into perspective.

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.

What students think about emlyon business school

    Zsofia K. from Hungary- 2nd year student of the MSc in Management - European Triple Degree - Grande Ecole (Class of 2013-2015)

    Testimonial from Zsofia K. from Hungary- 2nd year student of the MSc in Management - European Triple Degree - Grande Ecole (Class of 2013-2015), student at emlyon business school

    I chose emlyon business school because of the MSc in Management - European Triple Degree. This programme is truly unique because you are part of an inspiring, open-minded and adventurous international community. You also benefit from the strengths of 3 renowned business schools in Europe. The change of pace in the courses teaches you to be flexible and you have the opportunity to experience all this in some of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
    The biggest highlight of this degree has been the people I met in our cohort. Each classmate has their own unique background, stories and ideas for the future. This atmosphere is incredibly dynamic and inspiring. Moreover, the fact that 18 countries are represented gives an authentic base to discussions about global issues during class. Another highlight is the city of Lyon with its cultural life, huge parks, delicious restaurants and unique location close to the mountains and the sea.

    Morgane Hillen and Tifenn Acher, two program graduates recently launched their own start-up – Achhill’s Gluten Free, a wholesale company specialized in gluten and lactose free products.

    In our company, we do a lot of presentations and we have to convince many people about our project and how it can work. These presentation skills are very important and before studying in the Global Entrepreneurship Program, we would never have been able to do that… During the year, our fear of setting up a business became smaller and smaller and at some point, it disappeared. This is something we owe to the program.

    Sharan M. (India) - MSc in Luxury Management & Marketing - 2011-2012

    Testimonial from Sharan M. (India) - MSc in Luxury Management & Marketing - 2011-2012, student at emlyon business school

    His experience within the MSc in Luxury Management & Marketing allowed him to not only gain valuable academic knowledge in three countries but it also provided him with the opportunity to meet key players of the Luxury Industry.

    “Today, I can tell you that the luxury environment helps in pushing boundaries. This can be found across both the vertical and horizontal scope of work in the luxury industry. Of course, there are challenges since the luxury industry is new to the digital world and companies are cautious as to how it affects their business practices. The reason why I believe that the luxury industry is about going beyond the required is for the primary reason why I admire that quote by Luca Montezemolo, President of Ferrari, "We don't sell a car but we sell a dream."
