When I look back at the time when I was deciding if I would enroll in a one-year exchange program at Grenoble École de Management, it’s hard for me to believe that I considered not coming here. I contemplated for good reasons such as putting off the beginning of my professional career for another year, but in the end, the benefits outweighed the costs. It sounds cliché (oui, oui) because it’s what any student who has ever studied abroad will tell you, but my experience here at GEM so far has been indescribable and better than I could have ever imagined.

Why did you choose GEM?
My home university has a partnership with GEM, and so the Masters of Management exchange was an obvious choice for me due to the accessibility and correlation with my master degree in the US. A few of the deciding factors in my decision included the international atmosphere of the school, high rankings of my program, and the inclusiveness of the French culture with an academic environment. Many students from my university have completed this program in the past so I had several first hand personal testimonies to reference, which made my decision much easier.

Under the direction of Mark Thomas (Associate Dean & Director of International Affairs) teachings will be conducted by professors of GEM and resident professors to ensure students get the same theoretical content as they receive in France combined with regional education in the area of studying. In order to fulfill the demand for American culture, the International Affairs department is proud to announce a further common best-in-class Transcontinental Track program with one of the US-Ivey League members – the Columbia University in New York. If you like to see the world in one place, New York would be the most convincing option. Besides being a commercial power house, the city is an educational hub with huge international student population.
Universities like NYU and Columbia have close 10,000 international students each for every academic year.
We arrived at Beihang University in the beginning of September, in the fascinating city of Beijing, cultural and political center of China. A mix of surprise, adaptation and amazement, these few words will give a little hint of what the Transcontinental Track in Beijing is.
What are we talking about?
The Transcontinental Track Beihang University is a class of 28 students, 26 in their 2nd year at GEM and 2 Chinese students from Beihang, that take their classes on the campus of Beihang University in the northwest of Beijing from September to December. We follow Continue reading →
During November and December 2015, Grenoble Ecole de Management and the Institut Quimic Sarria (IQS) have offered a group of students the opportunity to study in France. The students will attend courses like Digital Marketing, Social Marketing, EU Policies, Economics and Business and Strategic in the Biopharmaceutical Industry. The universities have this agreement since 2011, offering the students the opportunity to have an international experience.
Victor Cuatre Casas Clemente, Edgar Bravo Izquierdo, Daniel Gancera Isabel, Silje Lie and Jahaira Vazquez Rodriguez shared with us their first impressions and expectations about the programme.

Why did you choose GEM?
Silje: I have a friend who did an exchange to GEM a couple of years ago and she told me about her experiences and I got a very good impression of your University. So, when I learned that my University in Barcelona offered an exchange to GEM I had no doubts about coming here.
