A ceremony for signing a cooperation project between Yichuan High School and EMLYON Business School was held on September 14. Putuo District Director Zhou Minhao and the business school’s Deputy Principal Tugrul Atamer attended the event.
The cooperation covers courses on French, French business experience and China- France culture exchange.
Atamer said the collaboration this time aims for introduction of not only French programs, but also more quality international understanding projects for students.
During his speech Atamer talked about the idea of “sustainable world citizen” and said that creativity, leadership, maker consciousness and the ability for international understanding have become necessities for excellent talent. He also welcomed Yichuan students to study in EMLYON.
Zhou at the same time encouraged students to develop a global vision out of the school, improve their comprehensive qualities and enhance core competence.
Based on the educational project, Putuo hopes to expand the cooperation with France to other areas and build more platforms for young people to play a part in local social and economic development.
The district government will launch necessary policies and measures to guarantee the process, Zhou said.
Founded in 1872, EMLYON Business School is one of the oldest top business schools in Europe and it is also one of the world’s top 1 percent schools that have qualifications of AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA at the same time.
