Four good reasons to choose EMLYON's Ph.D

  • Reputation and Vibrant Environment
    Choose EMLYON Business School because the school offers a vibrant and renowned environment. Ranked #20 in Europe by the Financial Times (Dec. 2011), the school prides itself from having the triple accreditation: AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. In line with these accreditations, the school is committed to provide world-class educational efforts, resources, and a strong involvement in research.
  • Top-Notch Curriculum
    Choose our PhD programme because the structure of the curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure you will be trained as a first-quality scholar. At the end of the four years, you will be an accomplished researcher, one of the best specialists in your area. You will have learned the tricks of writing articles for top-tier journals. In addition, you will have been trained in designing and delivering courses, both at undergraduate, graduate, and executive levels. The different courses and seminars are delivered by our recognized faculty. We routinely bring in the best specialists in the world to give seminars and lectures.
  • High Degree of Interaction
    Choose our programme because it is small and focused. We decided to keep the programme small (around 20 students) so that you can benefit from two major advantages. First, limiting the programme to a human size allows more and better interactions. Everything here is one-to-one, face-to-face. You will meet, interact, and work closely with faculty members and fellow PhDs on a daily basis. We see this as an essential asset to your scholarly development. Second, the small size is a consequence of our willingness to remain focused. We don't do finance, we don't do marketing, but only management and entrepreneurship. The advantage is that each and every student and faculty member you'll talk to shares the very same research interests that brought you here.
  • Truly International
    Choose to come here because we're truly international, and that's interesting and fun! Professors are from Australia, Canada, England, Finland, France, Spain, Sweden, Tunisia, USA, etc. Current students come from 16 different countries and four continents, and no country has more than 13% students. Students are from Argentina, Brazil, China (x3), France (x3), Germany (x2), Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, South Korea, Syria, Thailand, Tunisia, Ukraine, USA (x2) and Zimbabwe. Remember that the programme is entirely delivered in English, and knowledge of French is not required.

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."
