Grenoble Ecole de Management provides numerous services to support students during their studies.
Center for Personal and Managerial Development (CDPM)
The CDPM counts on a dozen certified consultants and coaches to help students organize their personal and professional aspirations. These counselors help students develop their self-awareness, understand their past and personality, and chose the path that will help them achieve their goals.
By developing awareness about their talent and skills, students develop the ability to adapt and manage uncertainty. They learn to reinvent themselves everyday on the path to success. And they are empowered to chose paths that might not yet even exist!
The CDPM's team provides support through conferences, workshops, individual interviews and classes.
- Professional project: The CDPM offers classes and workshops to help students think about their personal and professional goals.
- Program counseling: The CDPM helps students understand and choose among the various program options available at Grenoble Ecole de Management.
- Analysis and Reflection: As part of the GEM Learning Model, the CDPM organizes workshops for students to learn about practical analysis and self-awareness.
- Skills: The CDPM works with students to help them identify their skills and choose career paths that are in line with their abilities and aspirations.
- Personal development: Many conferences and workshops are organized on topics such as stress management, emotional intelligence, the right to make mistakes, decision-making or the ability to adapt.
