Program structure

The MBA offers a 500 hour general management program in a triple-accredited International Business School.  The Grenoble Ecole de Management MBA is highly applied in content, delivered by a team that brings together academic specialists together with experienced managers and consultants from a variety of sectors.

Grenoble’s partnerships enable us to offer the program in partner campus locations. The program delivered through these partnerships provides the same core modules, specialization modules and project phase as the Grenoble program. For many of the modules, faculty teaching in Grenoble travel to partner campuses so ensuring that exactly the same teaching takes place throughout the MBA network, enhanced by teaching input from our partner school faculty.

If they wish, participants also have the opportunity to come to Grenoble for the optional Personal Development Week which runs each year, and for the three specialization weeks, so that students from all four sites can network.

There are 3 distinct phases to the program:

Phase 1 Core courses:

  The program is a balanced and challenging one, equipping participants with numerical and analytical skills, communication and interpersonal skills, plus insights into current managerial issues in geopolitics, macroeconomics and governance. Through regular group work on cases and individual assignments on management dilemmas, students will develop their expertise in budgetary and financial management as well as in people management. Strategic analysis and Negotiations skills are developed through face-to-face team negotiations to resolve authentic and complex cases.

Personal Development Week in Grenoble each year:

Students from each campus are invited to attend this week together, enabling students from 4 centers to network and to attend seminars and conferences together on key management questions. Topics covered typically include Alumni Evening, Interview Techniques, Start-Up Funding, Business Plan design and Company Visit.

Phase 2 Specializations:

From a menu of up to 8 alternative choices students can personalize their MBA program for 20% of their total class sessions. The content is focused on professional management activity, such as Management Consulting, or management in a range of functional areas. For many participants, the specialization (elective) choice will also determine the focus of the Final Management Project: for example choosing a Finance elective can lead to a Final Project in the area of Finance.

Phase 3 Final Management Project: 

During this phase, program participants are free complete their projects while pursuing professional activity anywhere in the world. The Project is an opportunity that different students use in different ways. A Part-Time student will often bring analysis of value to the organization while completing the MBA Program. A Full-Time student may use the project to demonstrate potential value and capabilities to a future employer. For some students, ideas for entrepreneurial ventures can be assessed before the start-up is launched.
