    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?  


    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.

    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?


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


    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?


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

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


    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.


    Tie-less moment


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

    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?


    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. 


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


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