A unique Action Learning program : the SWITCH program co-created by emlyon business school and AIRBUS GROUP LEADERSHIP UNIVERSITY

emlyon business school and Airbus Group Leadership University


The two companies have partenered to implement a unique skill and leadership development program for senior managers.  

For 5 years, already more than 100 partner companies worked with teams of Airbus senior managers to lead successfully more than 120 strategic projects. The Airbus teams provided new perspectives, sparring and expertise to companies of all sizes and sectors (except Aeronautics).

Their mission consists of :

  • hands-on involvement in a strategic project for the partner company
  • suggesting creative and high added-value solutions at the end of the program
  • providing a debriefing and implementing their skills in their own areas of responsibilities 


With a total duration of ten months, the program is divided into five modules, alternating on-site and remote sessions: from the team-building phase to the final presentation of strategic recommendations. The program's strength is based on hands-on experience in an unknown environment and with a challenge that is new to experienced managers.

The benefit for the partner companies is a free consulting mission carried out by experienced managers.

The partner companies define themselves the strategic question and the pace of exchanges with the Airbus teams. The program last from February to October 2018.
