Chinese DBA (Doctorate of Business Administration) graduates from Grenoble Ecole de Management in Chongqing - a city of 30 million inhabitants in the heart of China in the Sichuan basin - sent 2,500 masks to Grenoble on March 11th (1800 FFP2 masks and 700 surgical masks). The masks were received 12 days later by Jie Jan, a professor at GEM who coordinated the entire operation from Grenoble.
On March 24th, the masks were received by the Grenoble University Hospital.
At the beginning of March, as the Covid-19 epidemic accelerated in Europe, the Chinese graduates became aware of the risk for their school and its environment and decided to mobilize.
They are very happy that the masks were donated to the Grenoble University Hospital and its teams.
The Chinese graduates of the GEM DBA in Chongqing are particularly attached to GEM and to France, the school and the country in which they studied for several years and obtained their DBA diploma.
