Over thirty College of Business students participated in the Grenoble Ecole de Management’s international summer school program in Grenoble, France this past summer.  The students were escorted by Dr. Suzanne Altobello, Director of MBA Programs and Jenni Janssen, Marketing Director for MBA Programs. 

During the four week excursion, twenty-eight undergraduate students enrolled in the International Strategy/International Marketing program, while the remaining four took part in the new Fashion Merchandising program. Two graduate students took courses in entrepreneurship, innovation, and design.

Aside from their coursework, students enjoyed the scenic areas of Annecy and Paris where they visited Moulin Rouge and the Eiffel Tower.  Students also honed their culinary skills by attending in a French cooking class.  Students also enjoyed zip lining through the mountains near Grenoble, participating in a formal wine tasting class, and attending a Jay-Z concert
