“Being an entrepreneur means being creative, discovering new worlds, having a mindset that makes you look beyond existing things and finding creative answers to present and future challenges. That is the spirit of the Global Entrepreneurship Program: entrepreneurial success.” – Pablo Martin de Holan, program director of the Global Entrepreneurship Program at EMLYON.

Three of the world’s leading institutions in the field of entrepreneurship, EMLYON Business School, Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management, and Zhejiang University’s School of Management joined forces to develop the Global Entrepreneurship Program, a one-year program designed for those who are eager to look beyond the scope of existing things, detect new opportunities, see what others don’t see and find innovative solutions where no one else will think to look.

Developing entrepreneurial skills

The aim of this double degree from EMLYON Business School and Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management, is to educate the next generation of international entrepreneurs. Join the program and you’ll be supported in gaining the entrepreneurial skills and knowledge that will eventually allow you to create tangible value, turn your ideas into global achievements and ultimately set yourself apart in a highly competitive economy.

During this 12-month full-time program, entirely taught in English, you will master what it takes to become an effective global business leader on three different continents, whether you aim to launch your own venture, take over the family business, or lead business development in existing companies.

An innovative and global learning experience

Global learning methods

Throughout the program, you will explore up to four areas of interest, including Entrepreneurial Management, Corporate Entrepreneurship, Family Business and Social Entrepreneurship. You will master the different phases an entrepreneur has to go through when setting up a project: launch, development, harvest, growth and expansion.

Hands-on experience with business projects in all three countries

Combining academic knowledge with practical real-life business challenges, you will work on a consulting project in each location for a local company alongside students from all over the world, helping you apply the entrepreneurial skills gained and providing you with first-hand experience of turning an idea into tangible value. 

A global learning experience in France, China and the United States

By studying, living, and working in France, China and the United States, with course-mates from around the globe, you will improve your ability to work with and lead international teams, enhance your leadership skills with stakeholders from international business environments, and build both your professional and personal global network.

Academic recognition from two world regions

Beyond gaining knowledge and experience in France, China and the United States, the Global Entrepreneurship Program provides you with a double degree from EMLYON Business School and Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management. This double degree provides international academic recognition and access to a global network of successful entrepreneurs, but most importantly, it provides you with a unique business card to open up unrivaled career opportunities all over the globe.
