GISMA Business School to Launch an MBA in Berlin

Program to be offered in partnership with Grenoble Ecole de Management

Germany's GISMA Business School has announced plans to launch an MBA program in Berlin.

The program will be offered in partnership with France's Grenoble Ecole de Management. Besides an MBA, the schools will also launch a Master in International Business as well as short courses in Berlin.

In Hannover, GISMA currently offers an MBA and other business programs in partnership with Maastricht School of Management. However, according to a spokesperson, once current students have completed these programs, GISMA will offer new programs in Hannover with as-of-yet-unannounced partner business schools.

In Berlin, GISMA and Grenoble will face a competitive MBA landscape. Students wishing to pursue their business studies in the city can already pursue a Financial-times-ranked MBA from the triple-accredited ESMT, or an AMBA-accredited MBA program from HWR's Berlin School of Economics and Law. Other business schools that offer MBA programs in Berlin include TU Berlin and HTW Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft.

Grenoble Ecole de Management—Grenoble Graduate School of Business, as it's known in English—has been ramping up its partnership activities in recent days. Just last week, the school announced that it had formed a strategic partnership with EMLyon Business School.

The new GISMA/Grenoble MBA is set to launch in January 2017.

Interesting. Does anyone think they will close Hanover and more to Berline completely?

I would think that Berlin would probably be a better place in the long run for them, given the program's audience...

Maybe they haven't found a partner for their Hanover programs? They might be waiting to secure a higher profile partner like Strath or Manchester, and then compare the two programs to find out which one is more profitable.

... but then again in terms of placements the cities are vastly different... could be worth it for them to maintain both places, especially for the exec ed courses.
