Explore an MBA at GEM, the Grenoble School of Business

1. Value for money

Grenoble’s cost of living is less than most cosmopolitan cities. And as part of the elite 1% of triple accredited, top-10 school in France, our #MBA is packed with extras at a fraction the price of North American programs (Free French classes, personal development inventory and training, career coaching, and more!)

2. Our (Green-)Tech ecosystem and network in the Silicon Valley of France

A springboard for learning to lead transformations, be they sustainable, digital, organizational, or otherwise. We've built a strong collaborative network around both tech and ecological solutions with glocal partners - integrating students, government, researchers, and businesses into problem solving and value creation sessions.

3. Immersive methods

Hands-on learning encourages sharing: three sites between Grenoble and Paris (including Grenoble’s phygital GEM Labs), expert speakers (alumni and professionals), and Live Business Cases. With small class sizes and high teacher accessibility, you won't get lost in a crowd. Active participation is essential!

4. Unlimited free access to our exclusive MBA-alumni

Our virtual community features conferences, master-classes, best practice sharing, and collaborative solution sessions run for and by our MBA, plus annual MBA networking events around the world. Your learning shouldn’t end with your classes! Connect with our 2,100+ MBAalumni of our 45,000 school alumni world-wide. You are sure to be at two degrees of separation from your ideal job or your ideal solution!

5. Become a Digital Transformation agent and experience Berlin's Start-Up Ecosystem 

A one-week study trip includes airfare and hotel. Connect with start-ups and hubs, immerse yourself in a thriving tech scene, and indulge in the cultural offerings of this European gem. Embrace professional, cultural, and personal exploration during your stay!

6. Explore Europe 

From our central base in the French Alps, the outdoor and mountaineering hub of France, enjoy biking along the Isère river, hiking, skiing, rock climbing, and more! Finished your 10 months of intensive study? Take advantage of the validity of your visa to extend your stay with an internship, or professional experience while you write your paper from anywhere in Europe.

7. Need I mention the French culinary experience you will have?

As an expat in France for 20 years, a program graduate, and now as the director, I can confirm this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It offers not only educational learning and inspiring courses, but also valuable contacts and unforgettable moments beyond the classroom. This is more than just an online class; it is an exceptional journey for you.
