New campus in Berlin with GISMA Business School

GISMA business school in Berlin
Published on
27 January 2017

Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM) today officially opened its new Berlin campus, where it will deliver postgraduate programs in collaboration with Hannover-based GISMA business school.

Centrally located on Potsdamer Strasse in the cosmopolitan Schöneberg area, the 1,600 sq. m. campus will bring together GEM's academic excellence and GISMA's postgraduate student experience.

The new German campus of Grenoble Ecole de Management is located on Potsdamer Strasse, Schöneberg, Berlin.

The site will offer the structure, connections, and networking opportunities that domestic and international postgraduate students greatly benefit from, as well as good transport links to enable them to make the most of the world-famous Berlin experience.

The initial course portfolio includes the Grenoble Ecole de Management MBA and Master in International Business (MIB), both of which started in January 2017.

Later this year, the school will welcome students joining the Grenoble School's MSc Marketing Management and the MSc Innovation, Strategy & Entrepreneurship.


The new campus was opened by President of Association of MBAs (AMBA) Sir Paul Judge. A leading businessman and chairman for numerous organizations, Sir Paul highlighted the multiculturalism of Berlin as a study destination in his keynote speech: "Berlin has the highest concentration of higher education institutions in Germany.

There are about 165,000 students studying in Berlin, fifteen-percent of those from overseas. And Germany is in fact the favourite non-English-speaking country for international students, whose number has increased by almost a half since 2009."

According to GISMA Managing Director, Dr Thorsten Thiel, the new campus in Berlin is the natural next step to enable the school to continue supporting the new German economy.

"We are very proud to be working with our partners from Grenoble on this initiative to bring an exclusive portfolio of highly-ranked programs to Berlin. The Grenoble Ecole de Management MBA will be one of just a handful of triple-accredited MBAs in the whole of Germany and this makes our offer completely unique," added Dr Thiel.

Santiago Garcia, Dean and Director of Grenoble Graduate School of Business, the international school of GEM, said: "Our collaboration with GISMA will allow our students to enjoy the best of two worlds: the prestige of our degree programs and the corporate connections that a reputed German business school provides.

For our students, this opens a new opportunity to study in an English-speaking environment whilst becoming familiar with the language, culture, and business of the capital of Europe's economic powerhouse."

About GISMA Business School

Established in 1999 as an initiative to deliver first-class international postgraduate education in the heart of the Lower Saxony region, GISMA had among its founders former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, as well as local CEOs and bankers.

During its consolidation years, the school had the support of 39 German businesses such as Volkswagen and Continental AG, as well as the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Leibniz University Hannover.

Working exclusively with internationally recognised and sector-leading universities, GISMA has been offering AMBA-accredited MBAs on its campuses since 2011.
