Grenoble Ecole de Management to open new campus in Paris
Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM) is to open a new campus in Paris. Located at 64 rue du Ranelagh in Paris’ 16th arrondissement.
Located less than 30 minutes away from the Gare de Lyon and Gare Saint-Lazare train stations, the new campus will be fully operational in January 2014.
The school intends to take full advantage of this prime location in the heart of Paris to promote its international programs, innovative approaches, and expertise in management of technology and innovation – a positioning aligned with GEM’s Business School of the Future initiatives.
Judith Bouvard, Dean of Grenoble Graduate School of Business, has been named Director of this new Paris campus. She says: "We have a long history of off-site campuses with the School delivering its programs in London, Singapore, Moscow or Beijing…Only a campus in Paris was missing! This new location will allow us, amongst other, to better provide services to our corporate clients. It will allow us to be closer to major French and international corporations and offer them a portfolio of programs adapted to their needs. Our expertise in management, innovation, and entrepreneurship also means these businesses can count on interns and graduates fully-operational and ready to contribute to their performance.”
Paris to be Grenoble Ecole de Management’s eleventh off-site campus
The Paris campus was the logical next step in the school’s strategy to stay ahead in an increasingly competitive business school environment.
The new campus will offer:
- Academic programs developed to meet the specific needs of the Paris market
GEM will offer selected programs – including its MSc in Fashion, Design, and Luxury Management and its Master in International Business (MIB) program – from its undergraduate, graduate, and executive education porfolio. The school’s Grande Ecole program (in its blended school/internship format) will also be offered. The new Paris location will enhance the school’s capabilities in areas like student internships, consulting, and final management projects and will offer library and information services.
- A place to roll out new initiatives reflecting GEM’s expertise
GEM will also use the Paris campus to continue to develop initiatives in geopolitics, technology management, and peace economics. The school’s first project will be to establish a geopolitics center, la Maison de la Géopolitique, designed to host meetings and events on global geopolitical and geoeconomic issues.
The campus will also become a forum for exchange between students, GEM alumni, and GEM faculty and staff. Job fairs and recruitment forums will also be organized on that new location.
