Grenoble École de Management is a business school founded in 1984 in Grenoble, France by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Grenoble. The Grenoble École de Management incorporates the Grenoble Graduate School of Business (GGSB) (as its internationally focused educational branch), the École Supérieure de Commerce (ESC) (the French branch that offers the traditional Grande École program), and the École de Management des Systèmes d'Information (EMSI) (specializing in Information Systems management). It has triple accreditation: EQUIS by the EFMD, AMBA, and the AACSB. In 2015, the school is ranked 6th nationwide[2] and its Msc in Management (MIB program) is ranked 15th worldwide according to the Financial Times[3]. Grenoble EM hosts a talent pool of students from various nationalities and cultures.[4] It is situated in the Europole area, next to the World Trade Center of Grenoble.


The Grenoble École de Management is one of the few management schools worldwide awarded the prestigious "Triple Crown" (accreditations by EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA) which distinguishes leading international institutions in business education.[5] The school's DBA program is one of eight Doctoral programs in the world to be accredited by AMBA.[6]


The Grenoble Ecole de Management offers the traditional program taught in the French "écoles supérieures de commerce", a Bachelor of International Business (BIB) and various undergraduate certificates. Including the renowned MBA, EMBA, and MIB, the 13 Master's level programs - delivered in English or French - emphasize innovation, technology and intercultural management.[7]

The Doctoral programs have been running since 1989 and are delivered in Europe/France (Grenoble), USA, China, Switzerland, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Abu Dhabi. The PhD program has been launched in 2009 and is offered in four majors (marketing, finance, strategy and innovation management, and organizational theory).[8]
