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!!

Double curriculum in Management and Engineering with Cy Tech (EISTI)
anonymous
France, Graduate
Business Studies
Overall
This double curriculum is very interesting because it takes place throughout the entire schooling and appeals to the constant solicitation of students, who from the very first days in school see 2 different methods and 2 different work systems (telecommuting and face-to-face). We can thus observe the best on each side and retain good practices. There is also the fact that the skills developed in engineering school are more in line with the very theoretical training of the preparatory class (mathematics and computer science) while exploring new, more specialized fields (object-oriented programming, database management, advanced algorithmics, etc.). Where business school training is more open and comprehensive, there is something for everyone.

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.

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)

Une bonne école pour apprendre à être polyvalent en entreprise
antoine F
France, Graduate
Financial Management
Overall
N'attendez pas d'une école des connaissances purement théoriques. L'école a compris et pris le parti de vous amener à l'essentiel: les bases des principales fonctions en entreprise. Elle mise surtout sur un élément déterminant: le comportemental, comment travailler en groupe, évoluer dans un environnement international. C'est là l'intérêt de venir à l'école, expérimenter ce qu'un cours sur papier ou dans une vidéo ne pourra transmettre. La vie associative permet également de mettre en application ce concept comportemental et d'accroître la bonne adaptation dans le monde de l'entreprise.

Pros
être multi sectoriel et encourager à découvrir différents secteurs
Cons
la flexibilité de la partie administrative de l'école

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
