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!!

Book a hotel in advance, because finding a room could take some time. When you like skiing arrange a discount pass at the university or le GUC, have fun and just go out (easiest way of preventing a culture shock)

It would have been useful to get some insights/arrangements from my home university (U of Ottawa) on accomodations and deals with the much bigger university of Grenoble (housing, activities, ski passes)

ESC-Grenoble is a premier business school in Europe. I would recommend it, and the skiing and snowboarding are a great plus.

Signup with the local student's association to get deals for food and mountain pass. Grenoble is also a great hub to visit the many ski resorts in the west end of the alps or to do some off-piste.

Dynamic and useful learning

5.0/5
Overall
The courses are made by good professors, but I don't think, at this level of studies, that there's a big difference in the course content of one or the other top-business school. What gives value is at least as much outside the classrooms: group works teach you soft skills for example. What I have liked is that I think the skills you learn help you understand companies better and make yourself useful in managerial situations.
Student associations are top level and require a lot of work, providing also an extremely dynamic social life.
Grenoble is a cool city as a student, you can go skiing any weekend during the season. Some bars are cool but anyway, as a student you're going more often for flat-parties than bars.

I went there to go snowboarding, but disappointingly it did not snow until the end of my stay in france. So if you have the choice, better chose the 2nd semester if you want to do any winter sports

It is easier to get to the ski resorts if you have a car, even though the bus services are top.

Go on the caf.fr website for student specific housing financial help. Learn to ski/snowboard. If you wish to travel per airplane, travel through Geneva, Switzerland.
