Evènement | March 12, 2018
From March 12th to March 16th, University Jean Moulin welcomed a delegation from Burkina Faso made of graduates from the offshore program Master’s in International Management at the University of Ouagadougou.

The delegation from Burkina Faso went to the Manufacture des Tabacs campus and visited the incubator, the workshop of associations and the “Chaudière numérique” (digital boiler).

They also attended two conferences: “The economic relations between Africa and France. Focus on the partnership agreements between the European Union and West Africa” and “Energy, environment, agriculture: how can the Rhône-Alpes solutions be exported to Burkina Faso?” in the presence of companies:  Enviscope, Lyon Latitudes and Universitaires Sans Frontières.

During their stay in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, they were able to meet actors of the cooperation between France and Burkina Faso: the wholesale Market in Corbas and the ADEA (Agence de Développement des Entreprises en Afrique/The Agency for the Development of Businesses in Africa).

In the framework of the international solidarity twinning between the city of Limonest and Boura in Burkina Faso, they met with the mayor of Limonest and the decentralized cooperation committee.

Cooperation between the University Jean Moulin and Burkina Faso
The cooperation results from a partnership developed in 2007 between the University of Ouagadougou and iaelyon School of Management to issue its Master’s degree in International Management. The program aims to train specialists in international management on the campus of the University of Ouagadougou. It is designed for students who wish to find out more about export processes or to understand more efficiently the mechanisms of international management in order to develop activities related to international management either in France or in their home country. Students who enroll in the program are mainly executives (managers in private companies or non-profit organizations, senior officials…) but the program is also open to students in pre-experienced training.
