The Grenoble École de Management (GEM) operates on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). It is generally accepted that in order to convert from ECTS to U.S. credits, one should divide the ECTS total by 2.

Small & Family Business


The objective of this module is to provide an introduction to three interrelated entrepreneurial topics, namely new venture creation, new/small business growth, and family business. After completing the module participants understand how to model entrepreneurial opportunities in comprehensive and structured manner, and how to apply this entrepreneurial approach in the context of growing new/small business and family businesses.

In the new venture creation section, participants will address the new venture design process including how to generate and evaluate business opportunities, how to identify the central building blocks of the intended future business, and how to validate those central building blocks.

In the new/small business growth section participants will address continued entrepreneurship, i.e. the various challenges new/small businesses face when they move beyond the initial founding success to address small business survival and growth. The participants will address internal and external growth strategies and the various ways to obtain resources to support such growth strategies.

In the family business section, participants will address the basic characteristics of family businesses, and apply the entrepreneurial ideas to this context.

API students studying abroad in Grenoble have two different housing options – students may choose to live with a host family or in a student residence.

Students who choose to live with families will have their own room and be provided with two meals (breakfast and dinner) per day and laundry service. Host families serve as a unique introduction to French culture and may be made up of a married couple with children, retirement-age couples, or a divorced or widowed woman with or without children. Most families do not live in the city center, rather they may be located throughout the city and in the surrounding suburbs. Families who live outside the city typically have larger homes with sizeable yards.

Students in Grenoble may also choose to live in a student residence. Students live with other international, American, and French students. Students have a single room, with access to a shared kitchen on their floor. Bathroom facilities are shared per floor, although some rooms may have bathroom amenities. Laundry facilities are available, and there are common areas throughout the building as well. A meal stipend to cover weekday lunches is provided; all other meals are the responsibility of the student.

Summer GEM students will be housed in a student residence (they do not have the host family option).
