Grenoble Ecole de Management in France is to launch a DBA in partnership with the University of Mississippi.
Aimed at mid-career executives, workshops will be held at both the US and French sites with faculty from both schools. Jean-Jacques Chanaron, director of the Grenoble doctoral programmes says this will allow the two institutions to combine the best practices of US and EU research in management.
The DBA is the first of many programmes the two institutions plan to establish.
The Grenoble DBA is part of the United Nations Global Compact, a voluntary corporate citizenship programme and the new programme is designed to support the goals of this international initiative.
“The students in our new DBA programme will be executives who will complete research based on their professional experience. They will transform part of what they have done into scientific, rational knowledge that is linked to the great researchers in business,” says Thierry Grange dean at Grenoble.
