COVID-19 Update

We have the great pleasure to share with you the organization of the coming academic year for our Masters of Science programs. Please note, that emlyon business school is committed to providing you with academic excellence and the best student experience possible as well as ensuring our students’ safety. Of course, the organization of the 1st academic semester (September to December 2020) will depend on the current and upcoming government regulations regarding the COVID-19 epidemic. As such, we may have to address a few changes in the planning to respect these upcoming regulations.

Before the start of the year

Reopening of international borders on July 1st: European borders have reopened since July 1st, allowing enrolled students to be able to come to France for their studies.
The French government is committed to prioritizing students’ visa maximizing our students’ chances to be on campus in France for the start of the year. We are committed to helping students in this endeavor.

Academic courses

The 2020 intake for the MSc in Management-European Triple Degree-Grande Ecole (ETD) will start on Monday, 31st of August. There will be an official welcome by Munich, Lancaster and emlyon, a master class and also an intercultural “seminar”. Courses will start on the 7th of September!


The 1st term will be online. ETD courses should then be 100% face to face starting January 2020 if the sanitary situation and the French, German and UK government regulations and travel conditions for professors will allow this.


Additional activities on campus could be offered in very small groups (career workshops, group work etc) starting October 2020 for those students who could or would like to join our campus.

Access to emlyon business school’s campuses

emlyon business school’s campuses will be open for students starting September. You can come on campus to study in the Learning Hubs, to visit the Makers Labs and to meet other Grande Ecole Program students. All other emlyon services are fully available online (Learning management system, online library, career services with job teaser, alumni network emlyon forever, etc.).


Students are welcome and encouraged to come to campus to have the best emlyon experience!
