    Expert question


    Expert question: Many programs pack students into a curriculum with international campuses in one year. At a glance it sounds great. However, don?t you consider the time students need to adapt to local business cultures, languages and networks to be successful entrepreneurs?

    What kind of support do students get in term of career development or start-up?


    I studied bachelors in international politics. Will I be able to get in? I'd appreciate your honest view please. Thanks. 


    The students selected in Lyon would have to finance their stay in China or in the US?

    What kind of career prospect that students have if they do this program?

    Tricky question

    Tricky question: Do your students and alumni enjoy drinking 1) beer in bars or 2) cocktail in chic jazz bars when they gather?   


    I am trying to apply on the website at the moment but apparently the last session has passed, is there any other opportunity to apply for this year?


    Is it possible to be hired during the program by a international company and starts a trainingship. It happens sometimes in the US?            


    Hello. What is the typical teaching method of a course? And how friendly are your professors? And how many students in a class? Merci beaucoup.

    In my previous job, I realized I need to boost my creativity. Is this something I can learn? Does your program help on this and how? 


    What would you recommend for a student, parent, who wants to start Learning business and at the same time to stay with his son? Is there any flexibility in the program? Or at Lyon do you know other programs which could adapt to my needs?
