In September 2014, emlyon business school launched its “New Territories 2020” plan as it sought to transform the school and secure its place among the world's top business education providers. The plan focuses on three key aspects: globalization,accelerating our digital transformation, and boosting our academic, social and financial performance. The school has now added two more aspects to its ambitious plan: cultivating the early maker mindset and developing the subject of joint intelligence.

We believe, now more than ever, that we are on the right track. And there is an even more pressing need to transform the way we do things. The digital revolution is pushing us to do more to change our learning provision and our model, as we cater to new student and business needs. In January last year we launched our new plan,“early makers 2023”. The plan will shore up our position in a rapidly changing market, allowing us to take our transformation further and reach our end goal faster. The early makers strategy caters to new training needs As people learn in new ways, we are rethinking the traditional value chain of training. For students and professionals, assimilating and applying knowledge certified by a diploma or certificate is no longer enough.

The entrepreneurs of tomorrow will be visionaries, shapers of the future, with a capacity to anticipate and innovate, to experiment and to transform. It is our role to help foster that early maker mindset. Skills will be the bedrock on which we build our future success, as we rethink our conventional approach to our programs, courses and materials.

Looking to 2023, we must accept that we need to reconsider our beliefs about the role and type of qualifications, and what we know about future professions.

emlyon business school connects communities of learners and change-makers across the globe, acting as a mediator between the worlds of science, engineering, humanities, art and the various business worlds.
