Strategy and Organization

Because at GEM, we've realized that there are no such things as "grandes écoles" per se, but rather "grandes écoles" that know how to be great if they know how to tackle issues that, until now, have not concerned them, but which are the real challenges and issues of the 21st century.

Creating a new international standard for business schools

Working closely with our region and ecosystem, we aim to inspire the worlds of education and business, and all our stakeholders, not least society.

Business Lab for Society, the R&D of business schools, through our ability to :

  • Enrich and disseminate technology and innovation management
