Revealing early makers

Our mission is to reveal early makers: a new generation of leaders, capable of seizing technological, scientific, political and social revolutions to create radical new solutions. Thanks to them, companies will be able to reinvent business models, customer experiences and ways of working together.

This idea of a “maker” reflects our view of an entrepreneur at emlyon business school: someone who tries, tests something out, makes mistakes, starts again and learns by doing. The entrepreneur and the intrapreneur must now combine the concepts of doing things and doing things quickly, being able to think ahead, coming up with ideas. They are able to think ahead, come up with ideas, be the first to see things and work faster than others.

emlyon business school offers executives and managers the opportunity to develop these skills through individualised and flexible learning courses, combining on-site, distance and blended learning. By making action learning central to its teaching methods, emlyon business school offers learners the opportunity to rediscover themselves in action. They will also have the opportunity to work on their own projects and to develop concrete solutions.
