Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM) has opened a new campus in Paris. Located at 64 rue du Ranelagh in Paris' 16th arrondissement, the goal is to give GEM a foothold in the French capital from which to promote its programs, notably in executive education.
Located within easy reach of all mainline train stations and easily accessible by public transport, 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."

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. A series of breakfast talks on Economic Intelligence are also planned.
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 the campus.
