iaelyon international outreach

Internationalization has been at the heart of iaelyon’s strategy and mission for 40 years with early development of academic partnerships in North America and Europe. Nowadays, the partnerships of the School cover student mobility, double-degrees, offshore programs, internships, research projects and faculty and staff mobility. It should be noted that offshore programs have been implemented with partners in the past decades. Internationalization is embedded in the School’s activities such as advisory boards, corporate relations, programs and research.
