A New Executive Education Course with emlyon business school

The Geneva Graduate Institute and emlyon business school have signed a Memorandum of Intent to develop academic, pedagogical and cultural activities that can take the form of student mobility, joint pedagogical activities, joint executive education programmes, conferences/seminars/symposia, research collaboration or pedagogical innovation, etc. 

A first project has already emerged from this partnership with a new executive education programme leveraging thought leadership and expertise from both institutions.  

A joint three-day Global Geopolitics and Business Strategy course will take place from 5-7 September at the Institute. It will provide key insights and practical tools for senior executives and/or board directors looking to keep their strategy in sync with the ever-changing environment in which they operate.

"This partnership with emlyon is a way to materialise the increasing relevance of the knowledge we produce at the Geneva Graduate Institute – including for companies and managers from the private sector"Marie-Laure Salles, Director of the Geneva Graduate Institute.

"The partnership with the Geneva Graduate Institute reflects emlyon business school’s hybridisation strategy. In a world characterised by deep transformations (socio-climatic, geopolitical, etc.), it seems essential to us to cross-fertilize different perspectives to better meet the expectations of society. Many projects will arise from this partnership (programmes, seminars, conferences, etc.) that emlyon business school and the Geneva Graduate Institute are delighted to develop together"Isabelle Huault, President of the Management Board and Managing Director, emlyon business school.
