A few weeks ago, students of GEM gathered excitedly in the auditorium for the GEMove International Allocation Day. One by one, over 500 students were called by name in order to choose their study abroad destination for next year – one of the biggest decisions in their lives so far. The Allocation was led by Mark Thomas, the Associate Dean & Director of International Affairs. Along with the team behind the system application, Mark called each student who awaited an allocation one by one, providing guidance, direction and even tele-consultation when it deemed necessary.

Here they explain their personal benefits of the supplementary income and how it has made their experience at GEM and in France one of the best in their life.

Ling is a double-degree student in the Masters in Management from Sun Yat-Sen Business School in China. Her experience at GEM has also been very successful, partly thanks to the support from the CMIRA grant. She said that she had a few options when choosing to study abroad, but with some contemplation and advice from her colleagues, she found that she made the right decision.

Life and Study at GEM:
When I began my studies in Grenoble, I found my choice was exactly correct. GEM is a very good business school. I had courses taught by professors from France, Germany, India, America, Ireland and China, which helped increase my professional knowledge and ability. And GEM offered great French courses in each week, which improved my French. On the other hand, I enjoyed a lot working with GEM’s students, both in and out of classes. There were a lot of activities organized by the GEM’s clubs. For example Continue reading

A Hello from a rainy but warm and welcoming city, Vancouver !

universityWhen arriving to Canada, we had great ice breaking days where we met our coordinator Julia, our main professor Sharka and our class mates. Among them, we are lucky to have 3 great Canadian charming people. We discovered the beauty of the city by having dinner to that magnificent place that gave us a splendid view of Olympic game.

We didn’t expect to be that well welcomed with lots of visits of the town, activities, in a nutshell, great atmosphere and awesome organization.  We kind of really feel spoiled sometimes. Lucky us! Continue reading
