PERSPECTIVES
ON 2014
BRAVO!
PERSPECTIVES ON 2014 PERSPECTIVES ON 2014
This past year was a turning point in our development
at Grenoble Ecole de Management. Created in 1984,
the ESC Grenoble business school became, in 1995,
the ESC Grenoble Group, and in 2003, Grenoble Ecole
de Management. In 2014, we were proud to celebrate
our School’s 30th
anniversary.
Over the course of its history,
the School has established
itself as a leader in the French
and European business
education markets ; and for
some of its programs, this
leadership position has even
been recognized worldwide.
The School’s triple accreditation
by the AACSB, EQUIS and
AMBA highlights our rapid rise
to excellence — a feat that is
all the more remarkable if we
consider the School’s relatively
short existence in comparison to
business schools which were first
established over a century ago.
The year 2014 was marked by
the creation of a new five year
strategic plan with two clear
objectives  : first, to grow the
School’s international renown in
the management of technology,
innovation and entrepreneurship;
and second, to evolve from a
Business School to a School
for Business for Society. At the
heart of these objectives is our
desire to contribute to society’s
well-being.
By continuing our work with
students and companies, we
seek to tackle key challenges
in areas such as globalization,
digitalization, ethics, and social
and environmental responsibility.
These issues provide us with
the means to help improve the
welfare of the world’s citizens,
businesses and society as a
whole.
All of us at Grenoble Ecole de
Management look forward to
continuing our efforts to train
creative, critical thinkers capable
of communicating their ideas. In
addition, we seek to impact the
major debates of this century
by carrying out original research
and enabling entrepreneurs
to transform new ideas into
concrete social and economic
value.
As we turn a new page in the
School’s history, we stay faithful
to our primary duty of ensuring
that business continues to be a
means of promoting engagement
and tolerance throughout society.

TRIPLE CROWN ACCREDITATION:
ANOTHER FIVE YEARS!
The year 2014 marked an important moment for GEM as the
School completed its third cycle for the renewal of its international
accreditations. For the past fifteen years, the repeated five year
renewal of these three accreditations has been a testament to the
School’s commitment to quality and excellence. As one of the rare
schools worldwide to achieve a triple accreditation, this recognition
attests to the School’s unfaltering dedication to continuous
improvement.

ENTER THE SCHOOL
OF THE FUTURE
Innovation has always been a pillar of the Grenoble Ecole
de Management vision. In 2014, pedagogical innovation was
again at the heart of the School’s development. Through
numerous exchanges, seminars and conferences, the year
was dedicated to establishing the underlying principles
that will guide the new GEM Learning Model. The School’s
professors, researchers and administrative staff continue
to work alongside companies and students to create the
learning environment of the future. No longer a traditional
classroom, the GEM Learning Model will be built on role-
playing, interaction and even emotions. Through pedagogical
experimentation, GEM is setting the foundations for an
educational experience that teaches students to be all the
more responsible, engaged, innovative and entrepreneurial.

FOCUS ON SERIOUS GAMES
The Serious Games at GEM
exemplify the intersection
between innovative pedagogy
and excellence in the
management of technology
and innovation. In 2014, GEM
created the Game of Deans,
another game in the GEM in
Game series. This new game is
a creative and fun approach to
imagining the future of higher
education. The game was rolled
out for GEM’s 30th
anniversary
celebration, where 130 staff
members, 550 Grande Ecole
students and 30 alumni played
the game. Participants imagined
over a hundred ideas for higher
education. For example, the
game gave birth to the « High
Tek Tek » concept of a library
that lends high tech connected
objects such as Google Glass,
drones and connected watches
so that students can test and
learn to use these expensive
gadgets of the future. « GEM
Digital Care » was another idea
dreamt up during the game and
the concept is the basis for a
new training project designed to
help individuals manage the fact
they are constantly connected. In
other words, it is about learning
how to avoid burnout by turning
off your smartphone, email and
other connected items.
MBA INNOVATION AWARD
FOR NANORIDER SERIOUS
GAME
In October 2014, the AMBA
awarded GEM an MBA
Innovation Award for Nanorider,
a game created in collaboration
with the CEA-Leti. The game
relies on 42 existing CEA
technologies and gives a team
of six players specific roles such
as researcher, marketing officer
or legal officer. The game is an
opportunity for participants to
think about the challenges of
businesses in nanotechnology.
The objective of the game is to
understand the fundamentals
of the innovation process,
the commercialization of new
products, and most of all, the
fact that innovation goes beyond
R  D and is part of a global
strategy. In 2014, 120 Grande
Ecole students and 30 CEA
experts used the game. GEM
also trained 20 professors to be
able to deploy the game across
many classes in 2015.
On February 6, 2014, Geneviève Fioraso, the ex-secretary
of state in charge of higher education and research,
awarded Professor Hélène Michel the badge of Chevalier
in the French National Order of Merit. Professor Michel
is recognized for her expertise on Serious Games and
innovative teaching methods as well as her engagement
in the development of pedagogy in France.
GEM Professor Awarded National Order of Merit
2014HIGHLIGHT TESTIMONIAL
Hélène Michel,
Professor, Department of
Management and Technology
« Pedagogic innovation and learning through games has been the
focus of my work for the past ten years. GEM provided me with the
support and funding necessary to go from theoretical ideas to concrete
results. To innovate we must sometimes go off the beaten path, yet the
government’s recognition of our work is a wonderful mark of support for
the practical results achieved by our creative teaching methods. »

GRENOBLE: THE FRENCH
TECH LABEL
Since its beginnings, GEM has
committed time and resources
to developing and interacting
with the Grenoble region. The
creation of the French Tech
label in 2014 was another key
opportunity to highlight the
region’s vibrant and innovative
ecosystem. Created by the
French government, the French
Tech label aims to valorize
metropolises working to provide
answers to the challenges of the
digital revolution.
GEM’s participation in the
creation of Digital Grenoble for
the metropolis’s French Tech
candidacy went hand in hand
with the School’s longstanding
focus on digital technology.
Whether it is via EMSI, GEM’s
school for IT and management,
the Digital Natives chair, Incuba
GEM, the BNP-Cardiff Chair or
other entities within the School,
GEM has been working with
companies and partners for
many years to understand and
overcome the difficulties of a
digital transformation.
The label, awarded in December
of 2014, represents more than
a year’s work. From a digital
barbecue in Grenoble, to social
networking and the development
of a website, 2014 was marked
by an active commitment at GEM
to valorize the digital strengths of
the Grenoble ecosystem.
 IRTNANOELEC:
AN INVESTMENT
FOR THE FUTURE
The IRT Nanoelec (Technological
Research Institute) is one of
eight long-term innovation
campuses to be funded by the
French government. Thanks to
its commitment and expertise in
the management of technology
and innovation, GEM is the
only business school in France
to participate in such a key
program.
In 2014, GEM continued to
evolve in its role as the IRT
Nanoelec training provider
for managers and engineers
in the field of information and
communication technology as
well as connected solutions
for smart energy, health and
mobility. New programs such
as a Technical Manager training
program and the Advanced
Master’s in Big Data were
launched to provide companies
with a pool of talents who are
ready to meet the evolutions
of tomorrow. In addition, 2014
was marked by promising
advances on a new collaborative
pedagogic platform to be created
in partnership with Grenoble
INP. Creating such collaborative
pedagogic projects and allowing
students from both schools to
work together is a fundamental
part of the GEM Learning Model.

ULYSSES PROGRAM:
A TESTING GROUND FOR
INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGY
The first class of the Ulysses
program finished its year having
tested numerous pedagogical
methods that focused on
personal development and
self-awareness.
• A sports-oriented integration
seminar with individual and
group activities such as rock
climbing, via ferratas and
orientation races.
• A four week company
internship carried out before
the start of classes.
• Problem Based Learning:
Students were challenged with
problems they had to solve
entirely by themselves. From
finding information to providing
the solution, students had
to work together to discover
the correct answers and learn
new concepts.
• Live Business Cases:
students participated in
several one month cases
where they worked on a
challenge provided by a
company and presented their
recommendations.
• An intensive Business Game
week with Harvard University.
THE SUCCESS OF ULYSSES
STUDENTS
Having been already used for
three and four years respectively
by the MSc in Management
Consulting and MSc Business
Development programs, 2014
was the opportunity to test
Live Business Cases with
undergraduate students.
Twenty-four students, split into
four groups, worked on four
different cases. From software
in the field of electromagnetics
to laser rifles for biathlon skiing,
selling Greek Ouzo in France
or working on business models
for a design firm in China, each
group was given a different
challenge and clear project
guidelines to help them in their
problem-solving process.
After presenting their project
plan and scope to be validated
by the School and the company,
students went on to collect data,
carry out market studies, analyze
company finances and present
their findings.
A NEW LEARNING DYNAMIC
Live Business Cases alter the
dynamics of the classroom and
challenge the brightest minds.
After preparing their project plan
and scope, students continue the
learning process by carrying out
research to find the specific data
they require. The process is an
opportunity for them to integrate
knowledge learned both in and
out of class. From strategic
management courses to learning
to use the professional databases
in their library, students apply
newly acquired skills to solving
practical problems.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP
The entrepreneurial spirit is at the heart of Grenoble Ecole de
Management, as illustrated by its world-renown Advanced Master’s
in Entrepreneurship and its leading incubator for startups. The year
2014 was marked not only by strong recognition of GEM’s support for
entrepreneurship, but also by a new strategic choice. Hand in hand
with GEM’s global expansion, IncubaGEM has implemented a strategy
to develop its international network.

RESEARCH
In 2014, Grenoble Ecole de Management focused on reinforcing the global impact of
its research. As GEM has earned international academic recognition for its research, in
particular in the field of management of technology and innovation, the challenge lies
not only in increasing the level of its research, but also in transforming this knowledge
base into practical expertise for businesses and society. Sharing knowledge with
students, partners and the business world is a key part of GEM’s ambition to become a
School for Business for Society.
GEM RESEARCH ORGANIZED
INTO NINE TEAMS
While the creation of new
knowledge is an essential part of
research, orienting research to
solve practical issues for society
is just as important. With this
in mind, GEM undertook the
reorganization of its Research
department to better meet this
challenge. In 2014, nine research
teams were created on the basis
of GEM’s areas of expertise:
• Alternative Forms of Markets
and Organizations
• Business Model Reconfiguration
• Energy Management
• Finance Innovation Governance
• Marketing
• New Venture Creation and
Growth
• Social Network
• Work Life Career
• Political Economy  Sustainable
Competitiveness
This structural reorganization was
implemented to provide a clear
framework within which teams will
continue to tackle concrete issues
related to energy, healthcare
and well-being, social networks,
work-life, marketing and many
other issues. By bringing together
researchers on specific areas of
expertise, GEM has also set up a
system that allows PhD students
to easily integrate common
research projects and apply their
skills.
Focus on energy
management
As the energy industry faces
unprecedented levels of change,
companies and policy makers
look to research to provide
the answers to the challenges
at stake in key areas such as
renewable energy (solar and
wind) or the emergence of
smart grids. In 2014, the Energy
Management Team at GEM has
had its hands full producing
new research on topics ranging
from greenhouse gas emissions
to energy transitions or energy
efficiency.

stand out this year.
Pedagogy continues to be the School’s priority as the new Grenoble Ecole de
Management Learning Model and the strategic plan for 2014-2018 emphasize the
importance of pedagogic capacity and innovation. In becoming a vibrant ecosystem
for pedagogical experimentation, GEM continues to offer faculty members a unique
place to innovate and exchange ideas.

This new series of monthly
conferences is held on both the
Grenoble and Paris campuses.
Each conference is led by a
professor-researcher at GEM

OF TRIPLE HELIX
The term Triple Helix represents
the key concept that describes
how industries, universities and
public authorities organize and
implement their activities. While
much work has been done on
a macro-level, this workshop
was designed to explore micro-
level Triple Helix practices by
scientists and organizations. In
addition, this workshop was an
opportunity for researchers to
present papers at the workshop
and submit them for a special
issue of Technovation.
FIRST GEM RESEARCH DAY
Research departments are often
seen as the ivory tower of higher
education institutions. However
at GEM, the goal is always
to make research an integral
part of the School’s activities.
To encourage discussion
and exchange between the
School’s various stakeholders
(administration, PhD students,
DBA students, various
faculties, etc.), this first Research
Day provided participants with
conferences, Research Team
stands, expositions, videos and
speed-meetings to discover
research at GEM.
CREATING AND EVALUATING
THE SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE
The year 2014 was a year of
experimentation as professors
tried new tools such as
MOOCs, Serious Games and
other innovative teaching
experiences. When testing new
teaching methods, student
feedback provides crucial
insights to evaluate and improve
educational experiences.
To meet the challenge of
developing new teaching
methods, the School’s
end of class questionnaire
was reworked to focus on
students’pedagogic appreciation
of their learning experience.
Instead of focusing solely on
student satisfaction, the new
questionnaire asks specific
questions about the difficulties
encountered in class and the
speed of learning. In addition,
two qualitative questions with
written responses were added
to offer greater insights into the
student perspective on a new
learning experience.
Evaluations drawn from this
new questionnaire voiced a
very positive outlook from
the students. Overall, faculty
members averaged 4.01 points
out of five for their 2014
evaluations. A sign that despite
new teaching methods and
experimentations, faculty
members are still meeting the
key pedagogic needs of their
students.

INTERNATIONAL
Developing strong relationships with quality partners around the world has been the
priority of Grenoble Ecole de Management’s global expansion strategy. The year 2014
was marked by several key developments that highlight and contribute to the quality of
the School’s international offer.
GEM HOSTS THE 2014 EFMD
CONFERENCE ON MASTER’S
PROGRAMS
In December, GEM welcomed
a record 103 guests from 20
countries to the 2014 EFMD
Conference. The theme in 2014,
« Master’s Programs: Going
Global, » fit perfectly with the
School’s focus on developing its
international reach.
It was with great pleasure that
GEM welcomed guests from
academic institutions such as
Duke University, Richard Ivey
School of Business and the
University of Sydney as well as
guests from major companies
such as HP, Schneider Electric
and Google. The conference
concluded with closing
remarks from Della Bradshaw,
Business Education Editor for
the Financial Times. As the
organization that manages the
EQUIS accreditation, EFMD
conferences provide a unique
opportunity to exchange on the
future of business education by
bringing together key players
from academic, corporate and
accrediting organizations.
DEVELOPING
A GLOBAL
NETWORK
Every year, GEM works to build
its networks in various parts
of the world. Three principles
guide this effort: to develop
quality partnerships with local
academic institutions, to offer
GEM researchers the opportunity
to collaborate on international
research, and to create a link
between GEM students and
companies around the world.
As a result, 2014 was marked
by three new partnerships in the
United States and India as well
as continuing efforts to reinforce
key relationships such as the
partnership with Duke University,
launched in 2012. This past year,
in addition to welcoming two
Duke students in Grenoble for a
customized Executive Education
program, Philippe Dupuy, a
GEM professor and researcher,
coordinated the French section
of the Duke Global Business
Outlook survey. Thanks to this
collaboration, the study included
the financial outlook of French
executives for the first time
in 20 years.

of Grenoble Ecole de Management. In addition to maintaining the excellence
that has always characterized this program, 2014 was focused on developing

TRANSCONTINENTAL TRACK
CONTINUES TO EXPAND
The Grande Ecole program
continued to spread its global
reach with the expansion of
its Transcontinental Track. In
2014, the School launched a
new location at Simon Fraser
University in Vancouver,
Canada. Thanks to this latest
agreement, the GEM Center
for International Affairs now
manages three Transcontinental
Track locations: one in Beijing,
China with Beihang University,
a second in New York with
Pace University, and a third in
Vancouver. Students benefit from
general management studies in
Beijing and a finance-oriented
track in New York. The new
Transcontinental Track location
in Vancouver is specialized in
innovation and entrepreneurship
as the city is a hub for research
and high tech startups. In 2014,
the first group of Grande Ecole
students traveled to this location
and benefited from visits with
startups as well as high profile
corporations such as Amazon,
Microsoft and Boeing.
COMBINING SPORTS AND
MANAGEMENT
In seeking to encourage the
diversity of its profiles, GEM
provides high-level athletes with
the opportunity to take part in
its Grande Ecole program via an
e-learning curriculum that adapts
to fit their schedule. In 2014, the
program welcomed 21 high-level
athletes. In addition, the GEM
Sports  Management Institute
launched a 2-year degree for
athletes to take a first step in
post-high school education.
This e-learning degree had three
participants in 2014 and allows
athletes to easily combine their
study and training schedules.
DUAL DEGREE IN
MANAGEMENT AND
ENGINEERING
In 2014, the Grande Ecole
program enrolled 15 first and
second year students in its
dual degree program, which is
delivered in partnership with the
engineering school EISTI Cergy
Pontoise. Launched in 2013,
this program allows students
to study two years at GEM and
two years at EISTI. As a result,
students benefit from technical
studies in computer sciences
and mathematics as well as
management studies at GEM.
Finance and Banking in New York
As a part of the Transcontinental
Track, Business Week in New York is
designed to give students a deeper
insight into the key issues associated
with managing companies in the
finance and banking sector. In 2014,
GEM students visited 10 companies,
including the NASDAQ, Bloomberg,
Ernst  Young and Société Générale.

PROLIFIC YEAR FOR THE BIB
The Bachelor’s in International
Business (BIB) was proud to
announce several important
developments in 2014.
• First students from the
University of Kuala Lumpur
(UniKL)
In September 2014, GGSB
welcomed its first two Malaysian
students to the BIB program
thanks to an agreement signed
in 2012 with the UniKL Malaysia
France Institute. This partnership
prepares top Malaysian high
school students to join French
higher education programs.
With a five year scholarship
included, this agreement not only
gives Malaysian students the
opportunity to study in France,
but also allows GEM to fulfill its
goal of attracting top talents from
around the world.
• BIB ranked fourth in Le Figaro
Etudiant and Le Parisien
The French newspaper,
Le Figaro, ranked GEM’s BIB
program fourth among all French
Bachelor’s programs and first
in its « international » category.
The BIB was also ranked fourth
in a new ranking of Bachelor’s
programs by the French
newspaper, Le Parisien.
• Five months of internships for
BIB students
In 2014, BIB students
benefited from new internship
requirements. With a minimum
five months’time in companies,
students now leave the
program with greater hands-on
experience.
• New placement year set up for
second year BIB students
Gaining real experience in
companies is a key part of the
GEM Learning Model. In 2014,
GGSB provided second year
students with the opportunity to
take advantage of a placement
year and gain valuable work
experience.
• CROUS financial aid approved
Financial aid from the CROUS,
the French organization for
student aid, was approved in
2014.
MSC MARKETING
MANAGEMENT GOES TO
LONDON
The MSc in Marketing
Management was opened at the
GEM London campus. With this
new addition, the School now
counts six programs in London
and, in January of 2014, had to
move to a new building in the
heart of London to house this
expansion.
GGSB
Global expansion was an essential part of Grenoble Ecole de Management’s strategy
in 2014 and there is no better illustration of this growth than GGSB’s continued
international development. With programs taught entirely in English and new
developments every year, GGSB not only provides first-class business education
programs, but also acts as a catalyst for the recognition of the GEM brand worldwide.
Each year, demand for hybrid talents trained in management and IT systems continues
to grow. In response, EMSI focused in 2014 on expanding its programs and developing
partnerships. The growth of EMSI’s student body by more than fifty percent highlighted
the fact that this expansion has provided a quality solution to meet the current and
future needs of companies.

NEW ADVANCED MASTER’S IN
BIG DATA
Big data is one of the key
challenges of the future.
Understanding how to manage,
secure and valorize these
new large-scale data sets has
become a fundamental question
for companies in all sectors
of business. Having signed a
milestone agreement in 2013
with Ensimag, one of Europe’s
leading IT schools, EMSI
capitalized on this development
to launch an Advanced Master’s
in Big Data that is unique in
France due to its combination of
managerial, ethical, strategic and
technical IT content.
INFORMATION SYSTEMS
MANAGER PROGRAM TAKES
OFF
The year 2014 was marked by
strong growth at EMSI, a fact
in large part due to the growth
of the IS Manager program in
partnership with EEMI (Ecole
Européenne des Métiers de
l’Internet). Thanks to this
program, the EMSI student
body in Paris grew to more than
seventy students.
KEY SUPPORT FOR EMSI
As every year, the Scientific and
Pedagogic Committee met to
discuss and exchange on EMSI’s
offer. This day of exchange
brings together representatives
from the School, its academic
partners and key players, such
as the president of Cigref, a
French association of companies
which rely on information
systems, and the president of
Syntec, which brings together
French companies specialized
in areas such as engineering,
the digital sector and consulting.
By regularly bringing together
stakeholders from the academic
and business world, EMSI is
able to analyze the needs of the
market and adapt its offer to
match company demands in the
future.
THURSDAYS FOR DIGITAL
COMPANIES
This monthly event continued
with great success in 2014. In
line with current business trends,
2014’s events covered key
management and IT questions
such as the digital revolution in
companies or the relationship
between globalization and
information and communication
technologies.
Uniting Technical and

GEM: THE AGILITY
REFERENCE AT ORANGE
The year 2014 highlighted
the success of GEM custom
programs as the School
launched three new programs
for Orange, one of its major
corporate partners. The story
behind this successful expansion
lies in the School’s expertise
on agility. Following a training
program launched in 2013 for the
first level of managers, Orange
entrusted the School with
several new programs on agility
management, including a spinoff
of the program to train higher
echelons of management. Other
agility oriented training programs
include two-day training sessions
within Essec’s Orange training
program as well as a Boosting
Your Managerial Agility program
for Orange managers who work
abroad.
EXECUTIVE EDUCATION
GROWS GLOBALLY
The past year offered a clear
indication that the GEM
Executive Education program is
on its way to providing custom
programs for companies around
the world. The first steps towards
this international expansion
came through key national
partners such as Michelin and
Orange. As these international
companies reap the benefits of
their training programs in France,
they have asked GEM to provide
the same high-quality service
for employees around the globe.
The year 2014 was marked by
training for Michelin employees
at four international sessions
held in the US, China, Brazil
and Russia. Through its partner
Orange, GEM also developed
a training relationship with one
of Indonesia’s major telecoms
companies, PT Telekomunikasi.
REINFORCING THE LOCAL
ECOSYSTEM
The regional ecosystem around
Grenoble has always been an
important source of innovation
and exchange at GEM. To
valorize and support this vibrant
business environment, GEM
provided key local players such
as Poma, Roche Diagnostics,
Gaz Electricité de Grenoble,
CHU Grenoble, Opac38 and
Grenoble INP with custom and
open programs. International
corporations such as HP also
relied on GEM training programs
to valorize their Grenoble
locations.

As Grenoble Ecole de Management focuses its efforts on becoming a School
for Business for Society, the year 2014 was an opportunity for the Doctoral School to
reaffirm its commitment to creating high-impact research. The challenge is not only
to influence international academic debate, but to impact managers and organizations
worldwide. By encouraging the highest level of research through its PhD program
and applied research through its DBA program, the Doctoral School has continued
to develop its global reach.

The year 2014 was a step
forward in the Doctoral School’s
efforts to be an actor in the
uppermost echelons of research.
The School’s first three PhD
students graduated after having
published at the highest levels.
With publications in journals such
as Academy of Management
Journal, Journal of Applied
Psychology, M@n@gement and

The Doctoral School was proud
to announce the five year AMBA
re-accreditation of its DBA
program. Not only is GEM one
of only nine DBA providers in the
world to earn such a distinction,
but the program is the largest
of any AMBA accredited
DBA program. The continued
confidence of the AMBA
highlights the strong reach and
impact of the School’s DBA

RECRUITING OUTSIDE
THE BOX
In 2014, the first edition of
this event allowed companies
to break with their usual
recruitment habits. Instead
of simply collecting résumés,
this event gave companies the
opportunity to evaluate students
through role-playing scenarios.
First, students and companies
presented themselves during a
friendly breakfast gathering. Then
companies were able to see
students in action by proposing
scenarios revolving around
topics such as creativity, specific
business scenarios, negotiations
and debates on various issues.
WEB 2.0 PLATFORM
FOR RECRUITMENT
The corporate relations
department launched the
Career Center platform in
September 2014. This new
web tool, designed with
JobTeaser, provides students
and companies with a rich user
experience for their recruitment
needs. Students benefit from a
mobile-friendly design, targeted
job offers and the ability to fine-
tune their profiles. The platform
also provides companies with a
better estimation of their return
on investment thanks to options
such as video presentations, the
ability to target specific student
audiences and an increase in
registrations for recruitment
events.
GEM INNODAYS WITH POMA
Each year, this event allows
first year students to discover
and understand the innovation
process by working directly on
innovations for a company. In
2014, students worked on the
challenges faced by Poma, a
world leader in cable transport.
After two days of group work,
students presented 160
innovative ideas such as the
transformation of a cable car into
a restaurant or the use of cable
transportation to connect high-
rise buildings. This opportunity to
work on real company challenges
demystifies innovation and gives
students their first feel for the

ADOPTING A NEW HR TOOL
As part of a homogenization
process, the School adopted the
HR information system used by
CCI France. With this new tool
came the challenge of training the
School’s personnel to use and
integrate the information system,
a challenge that was overcome
throughout the year 2014 by
providing training for all staff
members who use the system.
DEVELOPING THE PROJECT

In 2014, the HR department
launched a new program to
develop employee awareness

a project process with clear
guidelines and an approval
process via the Global Efficiency
Management project (GEM +), this
new process helps employees
gain in efficiency and satisfaction
as they master the tools needed
to evaluate and advance their
projects quickly and clearly. The
process also helps anticipate

  • 3. FROM THE DEAN PERSPECTIVES ON 2014 BRAVO! PERSPECTIVES ON 2014 PERSPECTIVES ON 2014 This past year was a turning point in our development at Grenoble Ecole de Management. Created in 1984, the ESC Grenoble business school became, in 1995, the ESC Grenoble Group, and in 2003, Grenoble Ecole de Management. In 2014, we were proud to celebrate our School’s 30th anniversary. Over the course of its history, the School has established itself as a leader in the French and European business education markets ; and for some of its programs, this leadership position has even been recognized worldwide. The School’s triple accreditation by the AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA highlights our rapid rise to excellence — a feat that is all the more remarkable if we consider the School’s relatively short existence in comparison to business schools which were first established over a century ago. The year 2014 was marked by the creation of a new five year strategic plan with two clear objectives  : first, to grow the School’s international renown in the management of technology, innovation and entrepreneurship; and second, to evolve from a Business School to a School for Business for Society. At the heart of these objectives is our desire to contribute to society’s well-being. By continuing our work with students and companies, we seek to tackle key challenges in areas such as globalization, digitalization, ethics, and social and environmental responsibility. These issues provide us with the means to help improve the welfare of the world’s citizens, businesses and society as a whole. All of us at Grenoble Ecole de Management look forward to continuing our efforts to train creative, critical thinkers capable of communicating their ideas. In addition, we seek to impact the major debates of this century by carrying out original research and enabling entrepreneurs to transform new ideas into concrete social and economic value. As we turn a new page in the School’s history, we stay faithful to our primary duty of ensuring that business continues to be a means of promoting engagement and tolerance throughout society. Loïck Roche, Dean of Grenoble Ecole de Management President of the French business school chapter of the CGE (Conférence des Grandes Écoles) TRIPLE CROWN ACCREDITATION: ANOTHER FIVE YEARS! The year 2014 marked an important moment for GEM as the School completed its third cycle for the renewal of its international accreditations. For the past fifteen years, the repeated five year renewal of these three accreditations has been a testament to the School’s commitment to quality and excellence. As one of the rare schools worldwide to achieve a triple accreditation, this recognition attests to the School’s unfaltering dedication to continuous improvement. LOÏCK ROCHE AWARDED LEGION OF HONOR In addition to being recognized for his work and merits by France’s highest decoration, the Dean of GEM was also elected as President of the business school chapter of the CGE (Conférence des Grandes Écoles). Likewise, congratulations are in order for Hélène Michel, who was also decorated in 2014 (see page 11). AMBA AWARD FOR NANORIDER SERIOUS GAME In 2014, the AMBA recognized the excellence of this GEM serious game by awarding it one of its MBA Innovation Awards. Created in collaboration with the CEA-Leti, the game was piloted by Hélène Michel, a GEM professor and expert on serious games. GRENOBLE EARNS FRENCH TECH LABEL GEM was an active supporter of Grenoble’s bid for this label designed to support the development of local digital economies. GEM 30 YEAR ANNIVERSARY Created in 1984, GEM celebrated three decades of excellence in 2014. The School’s 30 year anniversary was marked by events in Grenoble, Paris and even Shanghai! 1 2 3 1 2 3 4 5GEM - ANNUAL REPORT 2014 GEM - ANNUAL REPORT 2014

  • 5. 988 99 ENTER THE SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE Innovation has always been a pillar of the Grenoble Ecole de Management vision. In 2014, pedagogical innovation was again at the heart of the School’s development. Through numerous exchanges, seminars and conferences, the year was dedicated to establishing the underlying principles that will guide the new GEM Learning Model. The School’s professors, researchers and administrative staff continue to work alongside companies and students to create the learning environment of the future. No longer a traditional classroom, the GEM Learning Model will be built on role- playing, interaction and even emotions. Through pedagogical experimentation, GEM is setting the foundations for an educational experience that teaches students to be all the more responsible, engaged, innovative and entrepreneurial. 09.

In 2014, GEM created the Game of Deans, another game in the GEM in Game series. This new game is a creative and fun approach to imagining the future of higher education. The game was rolled out for GEM’s 30th anniversary celebration, where 130 staff members, 550 Grande Ecole students and 30 alumni played the game. Participants imagined over a hundred ideas for higher education. For example, the game gave birth to the « High Tek Tek » concept of a library that lends high tech connected objects such as Google Glass, drones and connected watches so that students can test and learn to use these expensive gadgets of the future. « GEM Digital Care » was another idea dreamt up during the game and the concept is the basis for a new training project designed to help individuals manage the fact they are constantly connected. In other words, it is about learning how to avoid burnout by turning off your smartphone, email and other connected items. MBA INNOVATION AWARD FOR NANORIDER SERIOUS GAME In October 2014, the AMBA awarded GEM an MBA Innovation Award for Nanorider, a game created in collaboration with the CEA-Leti. The game relies on 42 existing CEA technologies and gives a team of six players specific roles such as researcher, marketing officer or legal officer. The game is an opportunity for participants to think about the challenges of businesses in nanotechnology. The objective of the game is to understand the fundamentals of the innovation process, the commercialization of new products, and most of all, the fact that innovation goes beyond R D and is part of a global strategy. In 2014, 120 Grande Ecole students and 30 CEA experts used the game. GEM also trained 20 professors to be able to deploy the game across many classes in 2015. On February 6, 2014, Geneviève Fioraso, the ex-secretary of state in charge of higher education and research, awarded Professor Hélène Michel the badge of Chevalier in the French National Order of Merit. Professor Michel is recognized for her expertise on Serious Games and innovative teaching methods as well as her engagement in the development of pedagogy in France. GEM Professor Awarded National Order of Merit 2014HIGHLIGHT TESTIMONIAL Hélène Michel, Professor, Department of Management and Technology « Pedagogic innovation and learning through games has been the focus of my work for the past ten years. GEM provided me with the support and funding necessary to go from theoretical ideas to concrete results. To innovate we must sometimes go off the beaten path, yet the government’s recognition of our work is a wonderful mark of support for the practical results achieved by our creative teaching methods. » GRENOBLE: THE FRENCH TECH LABEL Since its beginnings, GEM has committed time and resources to developing and interacting with the Grenoble region. The creation of the French Tech label in 2014 was another key opportunity to highlight the region’s vibrant and innovative ecosystem. Created by the French government, the French Tech label aims to valorize metropolises working to provide answers to the challenges of the digital revolution. GEM’s participation in the creation of Digital Grenoble for the metropolis’s French Tech candidacy went hand in hand with the School’s longstanding focus on digital technology. Whether it is via EMSI, GEM’s school for IT and management, the Digital Natives chair, Incuba GEM, the BNP-Cardiff Chair or other entities within the School, GEM has been working with companies and partners for many years to understand and overcome the difficulties of a digital transformation. The label, awarded in December of 2014, represents more than a year’s work. From a digital barbecue in Grenoble, to social networking and the development of a website, 2014 was marked by an active commitment at GEM to valorize the digital strengths of the Grenoble ecosystem. IRTNANOELEC: AN INVESTMENT FOR THE FUTURE The IRT Nanoelec (Technological Research Institute) is one of eight long-term innovation campuses to be funded by the French government. Thanks to its commitment and expertise in the management of technology and innovation, GEM is the only business school in France to participate in such a key program. In 2014, GEM continued to evolve in its role as the IRT Nanoelec training provider for managers and engineers in the field of information and communication technology as well as connected solutions for smart energy, health and mobility. New programs such as a Technical Manager training program and the Advanced Master’s in Big Data were launched to provide companies with a pool of talents who are ready to meet the evolutions of tomorrow. In addition, 2014 was marked by promising advances on a new collaborative pedagogic platform to be created in partnership with Grenoble INP. Creating such collaborative pedagogic projects and allowing students from both schools to work together is a fundamental part of the GEM Learning Model. 10 11GEM - ANNUAL REPORT 2014 GEM - ANNUAL REPORT 2014

SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE TESTIMONIAL Michelle Mielly, Pedagogical Designer and Faculty member, Department of People, Organizations and Society « We were proud to see our students’complex analyses summarized in 40 to 60 page reports that surprised even the companies. The key to their success was the combination of giving them autonomy while still providing them with a clear process to manage the project and teamwork. These cases were an opportunity for students to experience the realities of the business world and show a different side of themselves. » Ulysses students24 pages of in-depth analysis for companies 200+ Live Business Cases in English4 Live Business Cases in French6 KEY FIGURES 1st GEM MOOC Participants learned to think globally in this MOOC focused on geopolitics COMICS FOR MANAGEMENT Screenwalls Published every fifteen days, these comic strips teach students innovative solutions to concrete company challenges Comic Book Series Published in partnership with Glénat Concept, these nine page books help teach the fundamentals of strategy and management NEW INITIATIVES TEACHING METHODS OF TOMORROW ULYSSES PROGRAM: A TESTING GROUND FOR INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGY The first class of the Ulysses program finished its year having tested numerous pedagogical methods that focused on personal development and self-awareness. • A sports-oriented integration seminar with individual and group activities such as rock climbing, via ferratas and orientation races. • A four week company internship carried out before the start of classes. • Problem Based Learning: Students were challenged with problems they had to solve entirely by themselves. From finding information to providing the solution, students had to work together to discover the correct answers and learn new concepts. • Live Business Cases: students participated in several one month cases where they worked on a challenge provided by a company and presented their recommendations. • An intensive Business Game week with Harvard University. THE SUCCESS OF ULYSSES STUDENTS Having been already used for three and four years respectively by the MSc in Management Consulting and MSc Business Development programs, 2014 was the opportunity to test Live Business Cases with undergraduate students. Twenty-four students, split into four groups, worked on four different cases. From software in the field of electromagnetics to laser rifles for biathlon skiing, selling Greek Ouzo in France or working on business models for a design firm in China, each group was given a different challenge and clear project guidelines to help them in their problem-solving process. After presenting their project plan and scope to be validated by the School and the company, students went on to collect data, carry out market studies, analyze company finances and present their findings. A NEW LEARNING DYNAMIC Live Business Cases alter the dynamics of the classroom and challenge the brightest minds. After preparing their project plan and scope, students continue the learning process by carrying out research to find the specific data they require. The process is an opportunity for them to integrate knowledge learned both in and out of class. From strategic management courses to learning to use the professional databases in their library, students apply newly acquired skills to solving practical problems. ENTREPRENEURSHIP The entrepreneurial spirit is at the heart of Grenoble Ecole de Management, as illustrated by its world-renown Advanced Master’s in Entrepreneurship and its leading incubator for startups. The year 2014 was marked not only by strong recognition of GEM’s support for entrepreneurship, but also by a new strategic choice. Hand in hand with GEM’s global expansion, IncubaGEM has implemented a strategy to develop its international network. ENTREPRENEURSHIP 12 13GEM - ANNUAL REPORT 2014 GEM - ANNUAL REPORT 2014

ENTREPRENEURSHIP TESTIMONIAL TESTIMONIAL Valerie Sciacaluga Marragou, Head of the GEM Advanced Master’s in Entrepreneurship Joachim Schleich, Professor, Department of Management Technology « Here at GEM we have recognized expertise on regional and national markets. The same goes for incubators in other countries. A major part of my mission at IncubaGEM is to build a network that accompanies GEM entrepreneurs from local development to international expansion. » « Up until now, policy makers lacked sufficient information to judge the impact of a rebound effect, which causes consumers to leave bulbs on longer or purchase brighter ones simply because they buy low consumption bulbs. After surveying 6,000 households in Germany, we observed a rebound effect of only 6 % and can conclude that this has little impact on the savings gained by using efficient light bulbs. » $ 1.3 MILLION PLEDGED INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT FOR AN INCUBAGEM STARTUP Squadrone System, an IncubaGEM startup, benefited from an incredible level of international backing on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. The company, which sells autonomous aerial camera drones, launched its campaign in 2014 with the goal of raising 50,000 dollars, a goal that was blown away to reach one of the highest crowdfunding results of any French startup. € 220,000 PLEDGED SUPPORT BY GRENOBLE ALUMNI The GEM entrepreneurial spirit is in part founded on the strong connections between the School’s ever-growing alumni network and IncubaGEM’s business projects. In 2014, GEM Alumni and Grenoble INP Alumni came together to pledge over 200,000 euros worth of funding for new business projects. The success of this campaign highlights not only the strong connection between GEM and its alumni, but the shared desire to support innovative business projects. entrepreneurs120 IncubaGEM business projects49 KEY FIGURES 2014 HIGHLIGHT IncubaGEM Prepares to Go Global In 2014, IncubaGEM launched a new vision to develop its international network. While the incubator has firmly established its position in the vibrant Grenoble and French ecosystems, this new strategy aims to develop partnerships with incubators around the world. Whether it is to help foreign startups act in France or offer French startups the support they need to go abroad, 2014 was the focus of negotiations with various actors worldwide. 1st in France 6th in Europe 9th worldwide ADVANCED MASTER’S IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP RESEARCH In 2014, Grenoble Ecole de Management focused on reinforcing the global impact of its research. As GEM has earned international academic recognition for its research, in particular in the field of management of technology and innovation, the challenge lies not only in increasing the level of its research, but also in transforming this knowledge base into practical expertise for businesses and society. Sharing knowledge with students, partners and the business world is a key part of GEM’s ambition to become a School for Business for Society. GEM RESEARCH ORGANIZED INTO NINE TEAMS While the creation of new knowledge is an essential part of research, orienting research to solve practical issues for society is just as important. With this in mind, GEM undertook the reorganization of its Research department to better meet this challenge. In 2014, nine research teams were created on the basis of GEM’s areas of expertise: • Alternative Forms of Markets and Organizations • Business Model Reconfiguration • Energy Management • Finance Innovation Governance • Marketing • New Venture Creation and Growth • Social Network • Work Life Career • Political Economy Sustainable Competitiveness This structural reorganization was implemented to provide a clear framework within which teams will continue to tackle concrete issues related to energy, healthcare and well-being, social networks, work-life, marketing and many other issues. By bringing together researchers on specific areas of expertise, GEM has also set up a system that allows PhD students to easily integrate common research projects and apply their skills. Focus on energy management As the energy industry faces unprecedented levels of change, companies and policy makers look to research to provide the answers to the challenges at stake in key areas such as renewable energy (solar and wind) or the emergence of smart grids. In 2014, the Energy Management Team at GEM has had its hands full producing new research on topics ranging from greenhouse gas emissions to energy transitions or energy efficiency. 2014 HIGHLIGHT RESEARCH 14 15GEM - ANNUAL REPORT 2014 GEM - ANNUAL REPORT 2014

Several new events stand out this year. Pedagogy continues to be the School’s priority as the new Grenoble Ecole de Management Learning Model and the strategic plan for 2014-2018 emphasize the importance of pedagogic capacity and innovation. In becoming a vibrant ecosystem for pedagogical experimentation, GEM continues to offer faculty members a unique place to innovate and exchange ideas. MEET THE EXPERT This new series of monthly conferences is held on both the Grenoble and Paris campuses. Each conference is led by a professor-researcher at GEM and tackles concrete themes based on the researcher’s expertise. These events provide students, managers, partners and entrepreneurs with the opportunity to exchange with high-level experts on the solutions to current challenges. RETHINKING ORGANIZATIONS WORKSHOP In partnership with Cass Business School and the Copenhagen Business School, GEM held a workshop on organizational theory. The idea of the workshop ? To better understand businesses in society, to examine new models of organizations and markets, and to understand organizational rituals and ceremonies. WORKSHOP ON TELEMEDICINE, ETHICS AND LAW GEM organized a workshop in partnership with the Catholic University of Argentina to share research on telemedicine. The event brought together researchers, lawyers and institutional representatives to exchange on the ethical and legal implications of e-health and the use of telemedicine. WORKSHOP ON THE MICRO-FOUNDATIONS OF TRIPLE HELIX The term Triple Helix represents the key concept that describes how industries, universities and public authorities organize and implement their activities. While much work has been done on a macro-level, this workshop was designed to explore micro- level Triple Helix practices by scientists and organizations. In addition, this workshop was an opportunity for researchers to present papers at the workshop and submit them for a special issue of Technovation. FIRST GEM RESEARCH DAY Research departments are often seen as the ivory tower of higher education institutions. However at GEM, the goal is always to make research an integral part of the School’s activities. To encourage discussion and exchange between the School’s various stakeholders (administration, PhD students, DBA students, various faculties, etc.), this first Research Day provided participants with conferences, Research Team stands, expositions, videos and speed-meetings to discover research at GEM. CREATING AND EVALUATING THE SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE The year 2014 was a year of experimentation as professors tried new tools such as MOOCs, Serious Games and other innovative teaching experiences. When testing new teaching methods, student feedback provides crucial insights to evaluate and improve educational experiences. To meet the challenge of developing new teaching methods, the School’s end of class questionnaire was reworked to focus on students’pedagogic appreciation of their learning experience. Instead of focusing solely on student satisfaction, the new questionnaire asks specific questions about the difficulties encountered in class and the speed of learning. In addition, two qualitative questions with written responses were added to offer greater insights into the student perspective on a new learning experience. Evaluations drawn from this new questionnaire voiced a very positive outlook from the students. Overall, faculty members averaged 4.01 points out of five for their 2014 evaluations. A sign that despite new teaching methods and experimentations, faculty members are still meeting the key pedagogic needs of their students.

The EFMD Conference was an excellent opportunity to thank the School’s partners by organizing a Partners’Day. GEM Partners’Day 2014HIGHLIGHT TESTIMONIAL Joelle Silvestre, Executive Assistant, Head of Exchange Programs « We were happy to organize a day dedicated to our partners. The event not only served to thank our partners, but was also a chance to highlight our region’s innovative and international spirit by including visits to surrounding high-tech ski resorts as well as a tour of the Charteuse Distilleries, established by local monks in the 18th century. » INTERNATIONAL Developing strong relationships with quality partners around the world has been the priority of Grenoble Ecole de Management’s global expansion strategy. The year 2014 was marked by several key developments that highlight and contribute to the quality of the School’s international offer. GEM HOSTS THE 2014 EFMD CONFERENCE ON MASTER’S PROGRAMS In December, GEM welcomed a record 103 guests from 20 countries to the 2014 EFMD Conference. The theme in 2014, « Master’s Programs: Going Global, » fit perfectly with the School’s focus on developing its international reach. It was with great pleasure that GEM welcomed guests from academic institutions such as Duke University, Richard Ivey School of Business and the University of Sydney as well as guests from major companies such as HP, Schneider Electric and Google. The conference concluded with closing remarks from Della Bradshaw, Business Education Editor for the Financial Times. As the organization that manages the EQUIS accreditation, EFMD conferences provide a unique opportunity to exchange on the future of business education by bringing together key players from academic, corporate and accrediting organizations. DEVELOPING A GLOBAL NETWORK Every year, GEM works to build its networks in various parts of the world. Three principles guide this effort: to develop quality partnerships with local academic institutions, to offer GEM researchers the opportunity to collaborate on international research, and to create a link between GEM students and companies around the world. As a result, 2014 was marked by three new partnerships in the United States and India as well as continuing efforts to reinforce key relationships such as the partnership with Duke University, launched in 2012. This past year, in addition to welcoming two Duke students in Grenoble for a customized Executive Education program, Philippe Dupuy, a GEM professor and researcher, coordinated the French section of the Duke Global Business Outlook survey. Thanks to this collaboration, the study included the financial outlook of French executives for the first time in 20 years.

In 2014, the School launched a new location at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Thanks to this latest agreement, the GEM Center for International Affairs now manages three Transcontinental Track locations: one in Beijing, China with Beihang University, a second in New York with Pace University, and a third in Vancouver. Students benefit from general management studies in Beijing and a finance-oriented track in New York. The new Transcontinental Track location in Vancouver is specialized in innovation and entrepreneurship as the city is a hub for research and high tech startups. In 2014, the first group of Grande Ecole students traveled to this location and benefited from visits with startups as well as high profile corporations such as Amazon, Microsoft and Boeing. COMBINING SPORTS AND MANAGEMENT In seeking to encourage the diversity of its profiles, GEM provides high-level athletes with the opportunity to take part in its Grande Ecole program via an e-learning curriculum that adapts to fit their schedule. In 2014, the program welcomed 21 high-level athletes. In addition, the GEM Sports Management Institute launched a 2-year degree for athletes to take a first step in post-high school education. This e-learning degree had three participants in 2014 and allows athletes to easily combine their study and training schedules. DUAL DEGREE IN MANAGEMENT AND ENGINEERING In 2014, the Grande Ecole program enrolled 15 first and second year students in its dual degree program, which is delivered in partnership with the engineering school EISTI Cergy Pontoise. Launched in 2013, this program allows students to study two years at GEM and two years at EISTI. As a result, students benefit from technical studies in computer sciences and mathematics as well as management studies at GEM. Finance and Banking in New York As a part of the Transcontinental Track, Business Week in New York is designed to give students a deeper insight into the key issues associated with managing companies in the finance and banking sector.

  • 12. PROLIFIC YEAR FOR THE BIB The Bachelor’s in International Business (BIB) was proud to announce several important developments in 2014. • First students from the University of Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) In September 2014, GGSB welcomed its first two Malaysian students to the BIB program thanks to an agreement signed in 2012 with the UniKL Malaysia France Institute. This partnership prepares top Malaysian high school students to join French higher education programs. With a five year scholarship included, this agreement not only gives Malaysian students the opportunity to study in France, but also allows GEM to fulfill its goal of attracting top talents from around the world. • BIB ranked fourth in Le Figaro Etudiant and Le Parisien The French newspaper, Le Figaro, ranked GEM’s BIB program fourth among all French Bachelor’s programs and first in its « international » category. The BIB was also ranked fourth in a new ranking of Bachelor’s programs by the French newspaper, Le Parisien. • Five months of internships for BIB students In 2014, BIB students benefited from new internship requirements. With a minimum five months’time in companies, students now leave the program with greater hands-on experience. • New placement year set up for second year BIB students Gaining real experience in companies is a key part of the GEM Learning Model. In 2014, GGSB provided second year students with the opportunity to take advantage of a placement year and gain valuable work experience. • CROUS financial aid approved Financial aid from the CROUS, the French organization for student aid, was approved in 2014. MSC MARKETING MANAGEMENT GOES TO LONDON The MSc in Marketing Management was opened at the GEM London campus. With this new addition, the School now counts six programs in London and, in January of 2014, had to move to a new building in the heart of London to house this expansion. GGSB Global expansion was an essential part of Grenoble Ecole de Management’s strategy in 2014 and there is no better illustration of this growth than GGSB’s continued international development. With programs taught entirely in English and new developments every year, GGSB not only provides first-class business education programs, but also acts as a catalyst for the recognition of the GEM brand worldwide. Each year, demand for hybrid talents trained in management and IT systems continues to grow. In response, EMSI focused in 2014 on expanding its programs and developing partnerships. The growth of EMSI’s student body by more than fifty percent highlighted the fact that this expansion has provided a quality solution to meet the current and future needs of companies. GRENOBLE GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS (GGSB) EMSI (ECOLE DE MANAGEMENT DES SYSTÈMES D’INFORMATION) EMSI NEW ADVANCED MASTER’S IN BIG DATA Big data is one of the key challenges of the future. Understanding how to manage, secure and valorize these new large-scale data sets has become a fundamental question for companies in all sectors of business. Having signed a milestone agreement in 2013 with Ensimag, one of Europe’s leading IT schools, EMSI capitalized on this development to launch an Advanced Master’s in Big Data that is unique in France due to its combination of managerial, ethical, strategic and technical IT content. INFORMATION SYSTEMS MANAGER PROGRAM TAKES OFF The year 2014 was marked by strong growth at EMSI, a fact in large part due to the growth of the IS Manager program in partnership with EEMI (Ecole Européenne des Métiers de l’Internet). Thanks to this program, the EMSI student body in Paris grew to more than seventy students. KEY SUPPORT FOR EMSI As every year, the Scientific and Pedagogic Committee met to discuss and exchange on EMSI’s offer. This day of exchange brings together representatives from the School, its academic partners and key players, such as the president of Cigref, a French association of companies which rely on information systems, and the president of Syntec, which brings together French companies specialized in areas such as engineering, the digital sector and consulting. By regularly bringing together stakeholders from the academic and business world, EMSI is able to analyze the needs of the market and adapt its offer to match company demands in the future. THURSDAYS FOR DIGITAL COMPANIES This monthly event continued with great success in 2014. In line with current business trends, 2014’s events covered key management and IT questions such as the digital revolution in companies or the relationship between globalization and information and communication technologies.

After restructuring the program in 2013, this past year was an opportunity to reaffirm strong relations with local, national and international clients and partners.

EXECUTIVE EDUCATION EXECUTIVE EDUCATION GEM: THE AGILITY REFERENCE AT ORANGE The year 2014 highlighted the success of GEM custom programs as the School launched three new programs for Orange, one of its major corporate partners. The story behind this successful expansion lies in the School’s expertise on agility. Following a training program launched in 2013 for the first level of managers, Orange entrusted the School with several new programs on agility management, including a spinoff of the program to train higher echelons of management. Other agility oriented training programs include two-day training sessions within Essec’s Orange training program as well as a Boosting Your Managerial Agility program for Orange managers who work abroad. EXECUTIVE EDUCATION GROWS GLOBALLY The past year offered a clear indication that the GEM Executive Education program is on its way to providing custom programs for companies around the world. The first steps towards this international expansion came through key national partners such as Michelin and Orange. As these international companies reap the benefits of their training programs in France, they have asked GEM to provide the same high-quality service for employees around the globe. The year 2014 was marked by training for Michelin employees at four international sessions held in the US, China, Brazil and Russia. Through its partner Orange, GEM also developed a training relationship with one of Indonesia’s major telecoms companies, PT Telekomunikasi. REINFORCING THE LOCAL ECOSYSTEM The regional ecosystem around Grenoble has always been an important source of innovation and exchange at GEM. To valorize and support this vibrant business environment, GEM provided key local players such as Poma, Roche Diagnostics, Gaz Electricité de Grenoble, CHU Grenoble, Opac38 and Grenoble INP with custom and open programs. International corporations such as HP also relied on GEM training programs to valorize their Grenoble locations.

Thanks to this training, I was able to develop in-depth research on the subject of moral, ethical and unethical behavior in organizations. » « By working with an institution such as GEM, our corporate partners have the opportunity to go beyond one-shot training programs. In 2014, whether it was through certifications, degrees or an international offer, we provided our partners with solutions that accompany them throughout their evolution. » GEM GRADUATES FIRST PHD STUDENTS The year 2014 was a step forward in the Doctoral School’s efforts to be an actor in the uppermost echelons of research. The School’s first three PhD students graduated after having published at the highest levels. With publications in journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, M@n@gement and Psychological Sciences, it came as no surprise to see them go on to influential positions in the academic and business world. AMBA RECOGNIZES RESEARCH EXCELLENCE AT GEM The Doctoral School was proud to announce the five year AMBA re-accreditation of its DBA program. Not only is GEM one of only nine DBA providers in the world to earn such a distinction, but the program is the largest of any AMBA accredited DBA program. The continued confidence of the AMBA highlights the strong reach and impact of the School’s DBA research as well as the quality of its partnerships. GEM DBA GOES ITALIAN In 2014, the GEM DBA program built on its existing partnership with Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA) in Pisa to establish a new joint DBA program delivered in France and Italy. By bringing together the innovative business and research ecosystems in Grenoble and Pisa, this joint program offers participants the chance to advance their research in two « knowledge based cities. » GEM and SSSA have another joint DBA program with the University of Chongqing in China, established in 2013. ADVANCED RESEARCH SEMINARS PROVIDE HIGH-LEVEL TRAINING With research as its raison d’être, the Doctoral School continuously strives to provide up-to-date, expert training for its stakeholders. To meet demands for specific training sessions on methodology, the Doctoral School launched a new series of short programs (Advanced Research Seminars). These seminars offer students, staff and professionals engaged in research the opportunity to benefit from tools, insights and feedback by top-level professors.

Instead of simply collecting résumés, this event gave companies the opportunity to evaluate students through role-playing scenarios. First, students and companies presented themselves during a friendly breakfast gathering. Then companies were able to see students in action by proposing scenarios revolving around topics such as creativity, specific business scenarios, negotiations and debates on various issues. WEB 2.0 PLATFORM FOR RECRUITMENT The corporate relations department launched the Career Center platform in September 2014. This new web tool, designed with JobTeaser, provides students and companies with a rich user experience for their recruitment needs. Students benefit from a mobile-friendly design, targeted job offers and the ability to fine- tune their profiles. The platform also provides companies with a better estimation of their return on investment thanks to options such as video presentations, the ability to target specific student audiences and an increase in registrations for recruitment events. GEM INNODAYS WITH POMA Each year, this event allows first year students to discover and understand the innovation process by working directly on innovations for a company. In 2014, students worked on the challenges faced by Poma, a world leader in cable transport. After two days of group work, students presented 160 innovative ideas such as the transformation of a cable car into a restaurant or the use of cable transportation to connect high- rise buildings.
