At ESCG the two events not to miss is the Integration Weekend and the Gala. Student associations organise soirées and parties all the time, as well as other schools' student associations. Brilliant way to get to know people. In Grenoble, there are 5 night spots to mention: Les 3 Canards, le Couche-Tard, London Pub and of cousre Le SAXO and le Vertigo (open until 05 am). Everything within walking distance. In the outskirts of town there are much bigger night clubs but they are more expensive + you need a ride! The National Music Festival on June 21st is an event not to miss, it is all over the country with music, concerts, and people everywhere!

Personal recommendation
It is a new, very modern school that is rated among the top 7 of French business schools and is highly estimated among recruiters, companies, people in general and so on. The student life is very active and it impressed me. ESCG has good partnerships both in academic and professional terms. Also it has a good location and the area is developing with several construction sites.

For you ski lovers, this is your Mekka! Grenoble is a great place to be and it is easy to get around. For instance, it is the capital of the Alps, Italy is a 2 or 3 hour drive away, so is Geneva, Switzerland. Paris is 3 hours and Lyon is 1 hour away by train. These are only examples, there are lots of possibilities. A tip is to get the "Carte 12-25" if you're under 25, you get up to 50% off on train fares and there are also other advantages. Before you leave, make sure you have all the papers you can think of plus several copies. You will need them in France as it has a bureaucratic and paper-loving administration. The school explains you what to do and where to go in order to get your visa, which is very important. Also you must register with the Caisse d'Allocations Familiales, it is worth the pain and effort: you get money back on your rent! A really nioce bonus that helps on your budget!!

Expenses
Main source of funding:
Government assistance
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
When you study abroad, you will spend more money on travelling as you go to see new places. At home, I stayed in Oslo most of the time and I didn't go much out as nightlife is very expensive in Oslo. In Grenoble the prices are a lot better and I could spend money in bars etc. without much of a guilty conscience!

Personal comments
Open a French bank account. Do your shopping in "grandes surfaces" such as Carrefour, the prices are lower and it is worth the effort. plus they have EVERYTHING you need, and then I really mean everything!!

Global MBA with exceptional professors and cohort

4.0/5
Overall
The professors are masters of their respective field publishing regular articles in business publications such as Forbes, Bloomberg Businessweek etc. Most of the subjects are quite intensive with multiple business cases going on at once. Group work is the key and individuals get to learn a lot during the brainstorming sessions. Real life simulations lets you apply the concepts learned in theory classes making the course stand among the top notch colleges globally.

The GEM was very helpful concerning bank account or housing. The organisation is french style - so it take some weeks before everything works well. Travel tips: Lyon (esp. 8th of december!), Annecy!!!, Paris (only 3hours with the TGV), rambling in the mountains (Vercors, Chartreuse, etc.), Geneve (2 hours with the train)
