What is a Company Project?

The company project is the project-based teaching system at the heart of the GEM Learning Model deployed at Grenoble École de Management.  

Etudiants_post-bac-H-et-F_300x300.pngThese assignments, proposed by companies of all sizes and in all sectors on the basis of real- life situations, are entrusted to a team of 3 to 6 students with mixed profiles and varied backgrounds (initial generalist or specialized training and continuing education). Over a period of 3 to 8 months, depending on the course of study, the team explores the proposed problem, interacting with the company and submitting a report with recommendations at the end of the assignment.

This is a key moment for students: working on real-life situations is a vector of meaning and therefore of involvement in your projects and anchoring your learning.

As part of the EP, students are accompanied by a school tutor for the duration of the assignment.


To remember

  • Open to any company or organization based in France, regardless of location. Courses are based in Grenoble and/or Paris.
  •  For some courses, projects from companies based abroad are also eligible.
  • In French or English, depending on the student's course of study
  • Two waves of project submissions: April to July and September to November
  • Market research is not covered by this approach

Jean-Luc Vecchio, CEO of Tessi Switzerland, GEM Masters of Management 1994, explains how his company has benefited from the projects carried out for it by Grenoble Ecole de Management students.
