Year 2 - Final Management Project
At the end of the one-academic-year full-time part of the program, each student will be required to complete a Final Management Project of approximately 15,000 words in length, under the guidance of a tutor. This is an applied or theoretical research project that can be completed at a distance and in parallel with full-time employment or an approved internship. To successfully complete the Final Management Project, students are required to address a particular research question or knowledge gap in their chosen field of their study. This will be business oriented and coherent with the program's objectives. A student may choose to write their project on a topic grounded in their internship experience.
Integrative Marketing Case Study
Using an existing business, the Live Business Case will provide the students with the opportunity to reflect on and integrate all aspects of the taught program. Students will analyze a specific marketing problem in the company and use their skills and knowledge to contextualize issues and propose solutions. This takes place in small groups and in a limited time. Assessment for the case study will be based on a group assignment with a group presentation to the Company.
The program is taught in English but provides the possibility to learn a foreign language at the same time. No prior knowledge of French is required to attend the program. Learning a foreign language is a recommended (but not compulsory) program option for all students who are looking to work internationally. Non-French speakers have the option of studying French (beginner to advanced level), while French speakers may choose from a number of other languages at the beginner level.

"As a graduate in International Relations with 5 years’ work experience promoting International Education in Mexico, I recognized that to enhance my business acumen and career opportunities, I would my need to follow a Masters degree.
The MSc Marketing at Grenoble Ecole de Management offered an ideal academic and cultural opportunity to study in English at a top business European School.
Over the first year I gained vast and invaluable knowledge from an excellent international faculty and enjoyed studying in such a multicultural group.
During the second part of the program I felt privileged to be able to access the European job market and find an internship at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a French technology company operating in over 100 countries around the world.
An international career had now become open to me as my internship turned into a job offer and I joined the Marketing and Communications division at the headquarters in Paris.
Soon after, I was offered a promotion to the position of Network Partner Programs Director and moved with Alcatel-Lucent to Milan, Italy. Thanks to my experience at GEM I now felt equipped with the international qualification and network to drive my career forward and reach unimaginable places."
