Michelle - MSc in Management - Grande Ecole

The program offers a complete range of core management and specialization courses for students from diverse backgrounds. 

Parallel to my academic course, I have also acquired 18 months of work experience (a 6-month internship and a 12-month apprenticeship) in a French automotive company as a program controller, where I was able to acquire professional skills through a very practical experience. It was not always easy to find a balance between work and study, and to manage the stressful rhythm. The Employer Engagement Manager from the school at that time provided me with support and coaching, which was valuable for a young student, and I appreciated it very much.

As an emlyon business school student, I have also had the opportunity to participate in many different career and social events organized by emlyon, which helped me to build my first network in France as foreign student.

emlyon is an internationally renowned business school and one of its strengths is the employability of its graduates. For my part, I have got my first CDI job offer (permanent contract) in a well-known consulting firm before finishing my last year of studies through a career forum organized on the campus.

Cindy - MSc in International Hospitality Management student

The “early makers” spirit of the program, focused on entrepreneurship and innovation, meet totally two of my career objectives which are to open my own chocolate factory, and a hotel school in Madagascar where young professional leaders will be able to compete on an international market.

Charlotte, MSc in Digital Marketing & Data Science student

The MSc in Digital Marketing & Data Science is a unique program combining digital from a marketing and consumer point of view while giving the keys and the basis to the understanding of the data science and its ecosystem.

These two fields of expertise are most of the time separated when they are taught in schools or even in professional environments. Having an experience in digital marketing, I was looking for a program that would give me more skills in my field but also in data science to have a full 360 vision. Finally, this unique training is anchored in globalization with courses in Paris, Shanghai and a learning trip in the United States. The international aspect of the program is very important when we talk about digital since there is no physical boundaries. Therefore studying in different major cities and environments is an advantage.
