The two institutions partnered to organize a virtual event with 700 students to launch and celebrate Grenoble School 2020 academic year. On Monday, September 14th, 700 students of the Masters in Management (Grande Ecole Program) at Grenoble Ecole de Management had the opportunity to experience their main auditorium of the new digital Virbela campus, created by Laval Virtual.

This is a back to school out of the ordinary, every student has a custom avatar to represent themselves. But it is guaranteed that school activities will take place regularly having meetings with Program Directors and Department members, and getting to know the classmates.
But there’s more, the new Masters in Management students are invited to take part in a challenge, A virtual escape game on the virtual campus.

The theme of the 2020 challenge is “New Deals to think and impact the world” and Grenoble Students have 9 days of lessons and virtual workshops on the use of controversy in negotiations to propose a new project to be implemented in the Grenoble ecosystem. The project must contribute and be circumscribed to one of the six societal and environmental challenges identified by GEM: health, work, energy, food, education, and the city.
