Scientific research at the heart of our strategy

Born out of the coming together of business issues and the expertise of emlyon professors, the research chairs and projects contribute to fuel ever-upgraded knowledge into the community of emlyon business school at once.

A chair creation reflects a large-scale multi-year commitment (usually of four years) from the partner's side, both financially and in terms of providing access to a great variety of valuable data. The commitment of emlyon business school is equally important, with the R&D activity of the chair's holder – an expert professor – and the means he/she will rally for the chair's project. Research projects correspond to a once-a-year or twice-a-year commitment which can also be large-scale projects.
