Grenoble Graduate School of Business and EMLyon Form Strategic Alliance

Schools' MBA programs to remain separate under the new partnership

France's Grenoble Ecole de Management and EMLyon have announced the formation of a new strategic alliance.

The alliance is called "Alliance Lyon Grenoble Business School" and will involve the creation of an innovation-entrepreneurship foundation and the harmonization of each school's program portfolios, among other actions.

According to a spokesperson from the Grenoble Ecole de Management, the schools' MBA programs will remain separate under the new partnership, and there will be "no impact on the MBA program in Grenoble."

Both schools have "triple accreditation," meaning they have accreditation from the three main business school accreditation bodies: AMBA, AACSB, and EQUIS. Additionally, each school's full-time MBA program is currently ranked in the Financial Times'  Global MBA Ranking.

For more information, please see the EMLyon press release announcing the new partnership.

It seems very early to give any assurances about that. The harmonisation is ahead and it seems very unlikely that one school can run two small full-time MBA programmes on campuses less than 75 miles apart. Does any other school do that?

For example, the development weeks and specialisations are very easy to bring the Lyon students to.
