emlyon business school continues its network internationalization and signs off a new academic partnership with McGill University School of Continuing Studies (SCS) in Canada, as part of the cooperation agreement between French-speaking countries.


Starting in September 2022, emlyon students from France and Belgium will be able to take a 12-month program in Montréal, and achieve a Graduate Diploma from McGill University, an EQUIS-accredited institution.


This double degree will be based on one of the 5 following majors: Applied Marketing, Public Relations & Communications Management, Integrated Aviation Management, General Management or Entrepreneurship.


Recognized by the Canadian government and home companies, this double-degree does allow for a work visa in Canada. Courses will be held either in the evenings or during the day on Saturdays. In parallel to their program, students will be able to carry out either an internship or work 20 hours a week to complete their international experience.


McGill University is 27th of the worldwide ranking of universities in the 2021 QS Top University, and 2nd in Canada.


For Isabelle Huault, President of the Executive Board and Dean of emlyon business school: “Today, emlyon counts over 190 top quality academic partners, covering 50 countries worldwide. Following UCLA Extension, Berkeley or IMT Dubai, we are proud to announce this new double degree with McGill University SCS, known globally for its academic excellence".
