On November 24th and 25th, two special events took place in Dubai and enabled us to gather about 40 alumni of our emlyon business school community of the United Arab Emirates.
Below, you will find a few words on those two get-together.
On November 24th, the JOGEA (Joint Grande Ecole Alumni) Exclusive French Alumni Event took place at Sofitel The Palm for the second edition of this event. The event was addressed to prestigious French Business and Engineering schools alumni.
French Ambassador and Consul came to give speeches to our community. About 200 alumni from many schools (emlyon business school, HEC, ESSEC, ESCP, INSEAD, ENA, Sciences Po, ENS, X, Groupe des écoles Centrale, Les Mines, Les Ponts, Telecom, Supelec…) joined the event!
Networking, testimonies, mingling enabled us to exchange point of views and ideas for the next editions to come. Christèle Fernand, emlyon forever Director, came to Dubai for this occasion as well.
On November 25th, emlyon business school alumni of the United Arab Emirates network gathered in the beautiful Al Qasr hotel- Jumeirah. Around 20 members showed up. We welcomed 2 new members arriving from Singapore.
We were pleased to have Christèle Fernand with us, who shared a lot of information about emlyon’s recent achievements and current projects: Learning Hub, campuses in Shanghai, Casablanca & Paris, BBA program... We are looking forward to organizing our next event!
