Campus life

ESDES, the Business School of UCLY

Esdes: downtown campuses in Lyon and Annecy

The Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region is renowned for its dynamism and its economic and industrial power. By choosing to study in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, you are assured of a professional career as soon as you leave your studies.

Esdes is a leading business and management school that prepares students to become responsible managers. Located in the heart of a region with many challenges and cultural activities, our campuses are immersed in an environment conducive to development.


Studying at a business school in Lyon

On the one hand, Lyon is one of the major European cities that attracts the most people. As the second largest city in France in economic terms, many entrepreneurs decide to set up their projects here every year. A true center of innovation, the city of Lyon is therefore one of the most interesting in France for companies.


Studying at a business school in Annecy

On the other hand, the city of Annecy is experiencing significant growth and is the most attractive medium-sized city in France. Between the lake and the mountains, Annecy’s living environment is defined as one of the most pleasant by the association “Villes et Villages où il fait bon vivre”.

But that’s not all, since these two cities together represent nearly 140,000 students and unique training opportunities. By joining Esdes, you will integrate either the UCLy Lyon campus or the UCLy Alpes Europe campus.

Both are located in the city center, close to all the facilities you need for your student life: transportation, housing, coworking spaces…


Student and associative life at Esdes – Lyon and Annecy campuses

A dynamic student life in a business school also means a dynamic associative life. At Esdes, we have more than twenty student associations, all of which are located in different environments: professional, social, cultural… There is surely one that will please you!

The commitment of our students is an essential part of our values as a business school of responsible management. For this reason, we free up Thursday afternoons for our students so that they can devote themselves fully to their project.
