Studying abroad is an experience you'll remember for the rest of your life. At emlyon business school, I experienced something much bigger than simply doing a business course. Working with students from all over the world – America, Hong Kong, Canada, Morocco, Italy, Guatemala, Russia – really changed the way I see the world. I made new friends that I'm still in touch with even today. And I was able to discover the city of Lyon's incredible beauty, history and culture. It was truly unforgettable!
