The Global Entrepreneurship Program (GEP) is truly an international program run jointly by EMLYON Business School (France), Zhejiang University (China) and Purdue University (USA). This extraordinary international opportunity prepares innovative graduates to be entrepreneurial leaders in a global setting.
EMYLON, Zhejiang University and Purdue all share the same global mindset and embodiment of the spirit of entrepreneurship. Ranked among the top business programs in the world by Forbes, The Economist, Business Week and Expansion, the Global Entrepreneurship Program merges three continents and three business schools into one focus: launching global leaders.
In the classroom, GEP students will be immersed in a curriculum specialized in entrepreneurship. This one-year program is taught entirely in English. Graduating students are awarded a Master of Science degree with a specialization in Global Entrepreneurship from Purdue University and EMLYON. The program also allows students to gain pratical experience on three continents. At each location, students work on a semester-long consulting project for a local company with a team comprised of members from multiple countries.
In addition to applicants coming from a business background, the GEP also contains applicants from the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields. Work experience is not required as part of the application process. An inquisitive nature, entrepreneurial spirit and a willingness to make your mark on the global market are some of the core aspects we seek in recruiting each year's class. Considering Purdue's strong reputation as a STEM focused institution and an incubator of cutting edge business ideas, Purdue's goal in the GEP program is focused on creating future global business leaders.
