A partnership uniting innovation and expertise

The MSc in Health Management and Data Intelligence is the outcome of the partnership between Mines Saint Etienne, a renowned engineering school, and emlyon business school, one of Europe’s top business schools devoted to lifelong learning for entrepreneurial and international management.

The two institutions joined forces and created this program in response to the health industry’s need for future managers that will be able to master the specifics of operations disrupted by artificial intelligence impacts. With campuses in Lyon and Saint Etienne in Auvergne Rhône Alpes region, both institutions embody excellence in their domain, and foster an innovative learning environment for students.

emlyon business school. More than a business school. Beyond excellence.

emlyon business school positions itself around the “early maker” concept. The maker movement was born 10 years ago around the Do-It-Yourself principle. Initially a concept that applied to DIY enthusiasts, it gradually spread to the world of digital and start-ups, uniting a whole community of creators, artisans, entrepreneurs, artists and educators in its wake. It signals a transformation from invention to innovation, from prototyping to the industrialization of a good idea.

Today, being a maker means controlling your destiny, being the actor and entrepreneur of your existence, and moving from Do-It-Yourself to Do-It-Together in a spirit of collaboration. This concept reflects our vision of the entrepreneur: an individual, who tries, experiments, makes mistakes, starts again and learns as they go. An entrepreneur must now combine this dimension of doing and doing quickly with the ability to anticipate, mix and nurture ideas, see things before others, and do things quicker than others. The entrepreneur from emlyon business school is a maker and an early mover. He is an early maker.
