Thanks to its long tradition of cooperation with institutions from China, Brazil, Russia and Indonesia, as well as its numerous bilateral agreements with North America and Europe, every year, over a hundred foreign students representing 60 nations attend the master's and doctorate degree programs at L'IAE Grenoble, and more than 50 IAE students go abroad to a variety of international destinations for a work placement or a study period as an exchange student.
In Shanghai, L'IAE has developed a privileged partnership with the SISU (Shanghai International Studies University) which sends every year a group of 10 to 15 of its students to master's degrees of L'IAE (co-diplomation) and receives IAE students for their year abroad, and with Shanghai University with whom it opened in 1998 an executive MBA program MBA France - Chine , jointly delivered with l'Ecole de Management de Lyon (EM Lyon), Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM) and l'IAE de Lyon.
In Russia, the MBA France - Russie was set up with the Ural State Technical University (URTU) in Yekaterinbourg in 2003 to prepare top Russian executives in a context of growing exchanges with Russia and its policy of openness to the free-market economy.
In Jakarta The MM - MBA (International MBA France - Indonesia) program is a joint cooperation between Magister Management, Faculty of Economics, University of Indonesia (MM) and I.A.E. de Grenoble Université Pierre-Mendès-France (MBA).
These programs where foreign executives come to Grenoble for a two week study period at the end of their training, visiting French firms and meeting French businessmen, are an opportunity for fruitful exchanges between foreign and French students and executives, and a chance to find internships and study programs abroad for IAE students.
L'IAE's collaboration with Brazil which started as far back as 1973 now takes various forms: from double diplomas aimed at Brazilian executives in such fields as Ingenierie Marketing or International Management and jointly delivered by L'IAE and Brazilian institutions of higher education, through student exchanges, to the IFBAE - the Franco-Brazilian Institute of Business Administration - created in 2003 to mobilize industrial and institutional partners from both countries, organise conferences and further foster the exchange of students and researchers.
All international students are more than welcome to come and study at L'IAE Grenoble whether they come as part of an exchange program or as individual candidates applying to the school's well established master's degree courses.
In 2006, L'IAE is developing two new executive MBAs: one with yet another partner in China -Shenyang University - in a city of 7 million inhabitants north east of China (90 minutes by plane from Beijing) and another in Indonesia with the University of Indonesia in Jakarta - the logical follow-up of a 10 year long collaboration in delivering a master's degree (CAAE) to Indonesian managers.
The next step for L'IAE Grenoble is now a global MBA, a potential new source of work placement and employment for French and foreign students of L'IAE Grenoble.
