Grenoble Ecole de Management is offering a new transcontinental program: in January 2022, 30 students will be able to leave to spend the second semester of their second year of the Grande Ecole program in Tbilisi, Georgia, at the Caucasus School of Business (Caucasus University). The program will focus on the history of the Silk Road and its impact on current trade relations.

This program has been developed as part of the new strategy for conscious internationalization through 3 key areas: new opportunities for students, a consideration for environmental impacts, and a stronger link with technology and innovation management.

Expertise from GEM and 8 renowned establishments from across the world

The School has designed exceptional transcontinental programs: it is not "just" about offering a semester abroad. The students selected to join this program follow the pace and philosophy of the GEM Grande Ecole Program taught by lecturers from GEM and the partner institution within a class of local students. Some courses and modules have been adapted according to the country in which the program is taught. Students can choose to join this program in the 2nd and/or 3rd semester of the Grande Ecole Program, for a single semester or for several consecutive semesters in up to 4 different locations within the 7 partner institutions, spread across 6 countries in 3 continents:

"GEM would also like to develop its transcontinental program and expand to new locations. For example, allowing students to study in South Africa, South-East Asia or even in Scandinavia" concludes Amanda Pouydebasque, Director of International Affairs at GEM.
