IE3 Global- Lyon
Sitting in the foothills of the Alps, where the Rhone and Saone Rivers meet, stands Lyon. The capital of Gaul in Roman times, Lyon became the headquarters of the French resistance during World War II. Today, this vibrant and cosmopolitan city of more than a million people continues to grow in the world scene, recently hosting the summit of the seven most industrialized countries in the world. France's second largest city is also a college town and the home to the IE3 Global "Centre Oregon" Lyon program.
