About EM Lyon Business School Paris
Anonymous rated 1 out of 5 stars

I love my school, both for the people I've met there and for the courses that are taught there. The teaching method is very modern with independent or group work, in English with teachers who are always very accessible and qualified. The premises are super modern, and the activities as well as the associative life are abundant.
