    The interview

    03:57

    Hi! Between the two MBAs, what is the biggest difference in terms of the programme contents and focus? And is there a big difference in level of knowledge or skills?

    06:40

    Hi. I have an engineering background. Can I be considered as a candidate for the full-time one? And will I be able to follow the courses?

  • 08:25

    Hi. Just a question on the ELP reading your website. Is this more of an exercise for a training purpose only, or can we start a company or be involved in public policy consulting in your region? Could that lead to a professional opportunity after the MBA?  

    10:41

    What kinds of trips do you organize for students in full-time MBA? Who do we meet and what are the activities designed in general? Many thanks.  

    12:45

    What is an average salary like after the international MBA? And do they get a new job before graduation?  

    15:12

    To enter the full-time MBA, how important is my English test result and transcript? Which factor weighs the most? Thanks a lot.

    Expert question

    20:38

    Expert question: One of the DNAs of EMLYON Business School would be the entrepreneurship. Is it incorporated in the two MBAs? How concretely?

    24:43

    Hi. Is there anything that I need to watch out for in preparing for the interviews?

  • 27:28

    I have a question about the corporate events of your career service for the full time MBA. Can we choose the companies we want to meet? Or how are they chosen?

    29:56

    Some criticize MBAs today for over emphasizing the analytical skills and neglecting soft skills. How do you train the soft skills?

    33:00

    Hello. I have 6 years of experience. My company asks for me to do an MBA in part-time. Do you think I can still enter the Executive part-time MBA? And can I just do my programme only in Paris?

    35:42

    For MBA in Lyon, do you have some residence or dormitories designed for international students’ convenience?

  • 36:27

    How many nationalities are represented in your current Executive MBA? And do they all work in France, in your region?

    38:27

    What is the ambience like in terms of team building among colleagues? I'm concerned because the part-time one doesn't gather students frequently enough to make good ties.

    41:11

    Tie-less moment

    41:22

    Tie-less moment: Are your MBAs trendy and conventional? Or are they random and deviating? Choose ONLY one. 

  • 45:18

    Hello. Regarding the part-time MBA, I find three days per month quite inadequate in optimizing the learning effect. What else do you offer to make the tuition worth it?

    47:54

    I'm from the States. I currently work here and I am interested in your part-time one. Any possibility for a distance-learning to get the diploma? Thanks in advance. 

    48:44

    Hello. Would you say it is worth for me to do the executive MBA if I am already in a managerial position?

    51:14

    How do you teach us to be creative exactly? Thanks.

  • 55:24

    How active is your alumni organization? And do they interact with current students to share information? Thank you.

    58:13

    After the part-time MBA, do participants usually continue with their companies or do they change? How often do they get promoted?
