You can simply drag and drop the .apk file of your application to the emulator and it will automatically starts installing.
Then type the following command.
adb install [.apk path]
adb install C:\Users\Name\MyProject\build\Jorgesys.apk

Now open terminal and type the following:
execute the following in your terminal:
./adb install yourapkfilename.apk if you get the following error message:
error: no devices found - waiting for device, follow the step 5.
Run your emulator from Android Studio, once emulator active then repeat step 4, you will see the success message on your terminal.
If you've created more than one emulators or if you have an Android device plugged in, adb will complain with
error: more than one device and emulator
adb help is not extremely clear on what to do:
-d - directs command to the only connected USB device... -e - directs command to the only running emulator... -s <serial number> ... -p <product name or path> ...
The flag you decide to use has to come before the actual adb command:
adb -e install path/to/app.apk
