Grenoble Ecole de Management is launching a made-in-GEM event for all its students, from February 26 to March 15, 2024. The aim is to highlight advances and opportunities in the field of sustainability, as well as the cutting-edge research being carried out by its research chairs.

In line with its commitments as a Mission-driven Company, this initiative is open to all its students, offering them a unique learning experience to act as responsible citizens of the 21st century.

For three weeks, students will be able to immerse themselves in various educational activities, led by Impact (a GEM student association created in 2006 to raise awareness and take action in favor of transition - website in French) and GEM's Inclusive Sustainability Chair.


The following will be offered: 

  • participation in frescoes(on diversity, oceans, climate, digital technology, biodiversity, etc.)
  • serious games (including Ethical Expedition - in French)
  • a national professional ethics competition (in partnership with the Rotary Club)
  • a solidarity basketball competition
  • self-assessment tests (in partnership with Sulitest)
  • MOOCs in partnership with FutureLearn and UVED (Université Virtuelle Environnement et Développement Durable)... 


Open Sustainability badges 

Participants will be rewarded for their commitment and contribution with Open badges, digital badges that can be valued on LinkedIn, reflecting their level of commitment to sustainability to their future employers. This scheme, which has been in place at GEM since 2021, has been issued to over 100 students since its launch.

In fact, the school is distinguished by a highly active and recognized research activity, which benefits its students thanks to the quality of the teaching provided in this field. As a company with a mission, we seek to involve our students in the adoption and development of a culture of sustainability, so as to anchor them concretely in current job market trends and the challenges of leadership in transition.
