Mission, Beliefs and Values

Since its creation, Emlyon Business School has been driven by entrepreneurship, innovation and humanism. Our vision and mission are nurtured by our global and digital world.

In today’s world, a “maker” is someone who takes their destiny into their own hands, who shapes and moulds their own future. Yet this is not a purely individual approach. On the contrary, it is a collaborative process. In other words, the principle is no longer “Do It Yourself”, but rather “Do It Together”. This concept perfectly reflects our vision of what an entrepreneur is, i.e. a person who tries, experiments, fails, starts again and learns by doing.

"The entrepreneur from emlyon business school is a maker and an early mover. He is an early maker."
