Key Differentiators

Grenoble Graduate School of Business (GGSB) is an educational institution within Grenoble Ecole de Management; it is internationally focused and is the English language division of the business school.  Grenoble Ecole de Management possesses all three accreditations that distinguish the leading international business schools:  European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and The Association of MBAs.

The business school’s mission is to advance corporate performance by providing skills and knowledge through excellence in pedagogical innovation and applied research.   Through the constant academic and innovative ideas from the faculty and student body, GGSB wants to promote responsible business practice through expertise in the fields of management of technology and innovation.

Through this mission, the school has a vision of providing its students with quality educational programs and embracing Management of Technology and Intercultural Management.  Executives will be given numerous solutions on updating and broadening their knowledge to increase their employment value.  The business school wants to create high-potential graduates with a vast array of valuable resources and expertise in research and executive education.  GGSB also has affiliations with the Management Development Institute of Singapore and the London School of Business and Finance



The Full-time MBA Programme consists of a year of on-campus courses followed by a project phase and requires a bachelors degree with at least three years of full-time work experience for admittance to the programme.  The MBA program is also offered in London, Moscow, and Tbilisi.

The programme is a 500 hour general management course that is highly applied in content and delivered by a team of faculty that brings academic specialists together with managers and consultants.  The course modules are taught over the period of a one year and take place from September to June.  After this has been completed, students begin their Final Management Project, normally working part or full-time during this phase.

The Executive Education at GGSB offers short, open-enrollment programs in the summer, along with certification programs in the areas of:

  • Innovation Management
  • Entrepreneurship and Family Business
  • GLobal Management
  • Finance
  • Marketing

One noteworthy program in Executive Education is the Executive Summer Programme, where professionals experience a balanced mix of high-level academic learning with extensive industry contact.  They get to interact with top managers during company visits and presentations and discover the French Silicon Valley (the high-tech hot-spots where innovation and energy start-ups occur).  Below is a tentative schedule of the Innovation Management Module provided by GGSB’s website.
