Jérôme RIVE, Directeur Général - iaelyon School of Management

Our mission, as a School of Management, is to provide our students with high-quality programmes and services in order for them to reach their full potential and give a concrete form to their career plans in the best possible environment.
iaelyon asserts its vision of a management which is open to multiple external worlds and proud of its humanistic mind-set.

It is in that way that we pass on the values of a socially sensitive and responsible management which are crucial in contexts of innovation and disruptive changes. The balance between education, Research and practice is at the core of our educational approach and nurtures our vision of Management.

The same applies to the international dimension of our School which is particularly reflected in the emphasis laid on opportunities of international mobility and the presence of international students and faculty on our campus. This is the case during iaelyon International Week in January, when 60 international professors teach seminars to Master’s and Executive students.

iaelyon creates the conditions for Agoras to share ideas and practices. In the heart of a dynamic campus, iaelyon offers a rich student life and I invite you to contribute to it according to your profile and your background. Conferences are organized throughout the year and are advertised in the monthly student newsletter Smart’Online.

Make the most of your time at iaelyon, join one of our many associations, keep in touch, develop your network with us and strengthen our community as a whole. We are delighted to count you among our current ambassadors and our future alumni.
