« As soon as we arrived in, we were immediately taken in charge by emlyon team and everything went so easily. We were so well supervised by our coordinators that it helpsus to adapt more quickly. The teachers were so dynamics and the courses were so diversified that it make the session past so fast. ! I’ve enjoyed the experience so much that I would have stayed much longer! Traveling to Morocco is an excellent destination, because you can find several regions so different in the same country, I’ve had the impression of visiting many countries at the same time.The experience was excellent and I plan to return to Morocco very soon. Thanks to the emlyon business school Casablanca campus team for making this summer session an unforgettable experience. »
