Selecting iaelyon School of Management means choosing to join a well-recognised school that is firmly anchored in the heart of a dynamic university, with an international outlook and a focus on innovation.

Our role is to train the managers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. They must have solid skills and knowledge in management sciences and be able to understand the challenges and complexity of a constantly changing professional world.

Our main advantage is a rich training offer, which is increasingly international, built in close collaboration with our business and academic partners and fed by the research activities conducted in our iaelyon Magellan centre. This offer is strongly marked by diversity: diversity of student profiles, diversity of teaching methods (initial training, sandwich courses, continuing training) and even diversity in the courses offered, with a particular emphasis on double competence courses.

iaelyon was a real opportunity and one of my best years of study. I was able to combine the development of real knowledge, interpersonal skills and methods for reflecting in management which serve me daily in my professional life. If I have to identify one particular feature, it is the development of student projects in associations, which was the driving force for my ambitions.

Signing up for an IAE means opting for an innovative and human model of management lessons and values!
