Our new campus

Join our new campus for the 2024 intake

After almost fifty years in Écully, emlyon is opening a new chapter in its history by moving to the Gerland district (Lyon 7e), in the center of Lyon.

At the heart of Lyon's socio-economic and academic hub, our new campus aims to be a place of hybridization and creativity, where "doing-to-learn" and "learning-to-do" take shape through exchanges and collaborations. Our new campus is a place made for pedagogical innovation, where you will experience multidisciplinary and international learning, combining face-to-face and digital experiences.
