Chairs and Research Projects

With the aim of developing research and teaching in a particular field, Chairs are created to leverage EMLYON's expertise in response to a sponsor company's particular demands.

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A CHAIR?

Chairs are designed to help companies develop innovative skills in their industry, whilst helping the Business School to strengthen its expertise by creating case studies, technical notes and working on both fundamental and applied research, often leading to lessons being led jointly by teachers and industry professionals. The aim of this programme is to drive forward management science and practice to meet new international challenges.
