GEM is concerned with the management of economic and societal changes. The program combines courses from economics, organization theory, social sciences and research methods to prepare students for their future responsibilities in a context characterized by financial interdependence, economic crises, environmental risks and inequality. A Bachelor or Arts, GEM is oriented towards developing our students’ managerial skills and understanding of economic policies and public institutions. GEM students learn to analyze and discuss questions such as: How did governments react to the Eurozone crisis? What is the role of public transportation in a region’s economic development? What role do networks play in today’s economy and political systems? How does civil society initiatives impact development work? How can firms, public administrations and NGOs help reconcile ecological, social and economic sustainability?
