EML Executive Development, the Executive Education arm of EMLYON Business School, is Launching the Global Executive MBA (Global EMBA)

LYON, France, March 17, 2011 - "The business world is constantly changing. We are entering a
new era where the increasing complexity of issues is part of a multicentre
context. Faced with these challenges we need entrepreneurial creators of
wealth and social justice. At the same time, companies are telling us that
they need people that are flexible, quick thinking and endowed with an
international vision and a desire to innovate," says Patrick Molle,
President of EMLYON Business School.

The Global EMBA has been designed to meet the specific needs of
experienced executives and company leaders evolving in companies with an
international calling. It gives them the strategic vision, open-mindedness
and the entrepreneurial leadership needed to develop their ability to
anticipate, to take risks, to motivate their teams and to think differently
with a socially responsible approach.

The opening session of the Global Executive MBA is planned during the
World Entrepreneurship Forum that each year brings together an international
community of more than 100 members from 55 countries, entrepreneurs, social
entrepreneurs, experts and politicians. The next edition of the World
Entrepreneurship Forum is to be held at the beginning of November 2011 in
Singapore. From this very first module, the Global EMBA participants will be
able to absorb the vision conveyed by the World Entrepreneurship Forum of a
responsible entrepreneurial leader, a creator of wealth and social justice.
Supported by members of the World Entrepreneurship Forum, the participants
will be actively involved in the reflection that takes place and, the
following year, they will carry out a project directly related to the main
themes put forward by the World Entrepreneurship Forum.

Geopolitics, strategy, entrepreneurial dynamics, managing diversity,
driving the performance or strategy of change - these are the core modules of
the programme.

It is designed in such a way as to offer a very high level of
flexibility to each participant, enabling him to adapt the pace of his
training to his professional and personal situation. It is planned around ten
intensive modules of about six to ten days every eight weeks, spread out over
a period of 21 months.

In addition, the programme is designed to combine different
types of learning in a real context of "Blended Learning". Virtual sessions
therefore prepare and complete the direct teaching modules, leading projects
and group work.

Finally, from among the 4 fundamental projects to be carried
out during the programme, the "Strategic Initiative Project" offers the
participants and their companies the opportunity of a rapid return on
investment by dealing with a strategic problem that for them is concrete.
