The innovative school

Since its creation in 1984, Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM) has focused on Technology and Innovation Management to become a world leader in these fields.

A know-how we have developed thanks to the innovative spirit of Grenoble. This cosmopolitan city of science and technology is the world's fifth most inventive city (Forbes magazine) and has fostered our institution's success.

Technology and Innovation Management contribute to two fundamental aspects of a company's development:

  • Creating value by integrating new technologies
  • Enhancing competitiveness and longevity by managing innovation

Encouraging an innovative spirit is a fundamental pillar of GEM. Technology and Innovation Management are integral parts of all our programs. From undergraduate studies to continuing education and research programs, GEM trains future managers to overcome the challenges of tomorrow.
