emlyon business school

explore, learn and imagine new ways of doing things

emlyon business school positions itself around the “early maker” concept. The maker movement was born 10 years ago around the Do-It-Yourself principle. Initially a concept that applied to DIY enthusiasts, it gradually spread to the world of digital and start-ups, uniting a whole community of creators, artisans, entrepreneurs, artists and educators in its wake. It signals a transformation from invention to innovation, from prototyping to the industrialization of a good idea.
Today, being a maker means controlling your destiny, being the actor and entrepreneur of your existence, and moving from Do-It-Yourself to Do-It-Together in a spirit of collaboration. This concept reflects our vision of the entrepreneur: an individual, who tries, experiments, makes mistakes, starts again and learns as they go. The entrepreneur from emlyon business school is a maker and an early mover. He is an early maker.
