emlyon business school's mission is to develop “makers”, people able to take control of their destiny, to be an entrepreneurial agent of their own existence with a flair for teamwork, by moving beyond “Do It Yourself” to embrace “Do It Together”. This concept of a “maker” perfectly reflects our vision of what an entrepreneur is, i.e. a person who tries, experiments, fails, starts again and learns by doing. Today’s entrepreneur must be able to act, to act quickly, to anticipate, to handle and cultivate ideas, and to see things and take action before others. emlyon business school entrepreneurs are makers and early movers. That’s to say, early makers.

emlyon business school sets out to develop these skills in a next-generation approach to teaching that combines the production and dissemination of excellence in academic research, the development of innovative curriculums (combining classroom-based, distance, and blended learning), teaching methods based on action and experimentation, and personal and professional mentoring for students. This strategy falls firmly in line with our aim of delivering personalised courses and knowledge flows, so that we can learn anything, anytime, anywhere.
