GEM Short Programs

Every year, GEM welcomes groups of students from some of our partner universities: Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, George Washington University, Kentucky University in the USA, and Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

These short programs enable small cohorts of students to discover GEM and its corporate environment. For 7 to 10 days, they have the opportunity to visit local companies, meet with business representatives and experts, and attend classes and lectures taught by GEM teachers on a specific aspect of business, such as innovation or design thinking.

During their busy time in France, the participants also get to enjoy of the cultural activities Grenoble has to offer, such as skiing in Courchevel, one of the world’s most beautiful ski resorts, discovering local attractions, and tasting regional cuisine.

Check out this video made during this January Innovation Business Week with students from UNC Chapel Hill, Duke University and George Washington University, to find out more on the program’s highlights and the students’ feedback.
