The new Global Entrepreneurship Program cohort first met on the morning of Friday September 2nd during the Opening Ceremony of the program which took place at emlyon business school Lyon-Ecully campus.
After a welcome speech given by Program Director Rickie Moore and different presentations, students attended an orientation seminar during the weekend. This seminar allowed them to do different team building activities as well as Yoga and Theater Improvisation. On Monday September 5th, the whole cohort gathered once again for an academic presentation during which Rickie Moore gave more details on the academic curriculum of the course. M. Moore also asked the students to introduce themselves and their aspirations. While their career ambitions span a large panel of ideas, the students all share the same objective: build up their entrepreneurial skills on three different continents, share their thoughts with classmates who have the same passion for entrepreneurship and create a global network.
