COVID-19 / Message from Loïck ROCHE to alumni

Published on

Loïck Roche, General Director of Grenoble Ecole de Management, addresses a message to all Alumni.

Dear alumni,

Over the past few weeks, we have all been confronted with an unprecedented situation, the Covid-19 epidemic. 
Whether it be personally or professionally, we have all been impacted by this situation, one that requires empathy, innovation, and discernment. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, you all possess these qualities that make up your own strength as well as the collective strength of our GEM Alumni network.  

At GEM, we’ve been handling this situation since it first came up in December. As an international school, we were faced with managing students on exchange or studying on one of our off-site campuses, calming their worries and finding solutions for classes that could not be administered. 

Today, our actions are based on three reoccurring themes: 

  • Be a responsible and united school/employer by doing everything possible to preserve the physical integrity and health of all students and staff members,
  • Maintain the continuity of academics and the success of our students, 
  • Anticipate the future and ensure the longevity of our establishment. 

It was important to me to share this information with you, and above all, express our support on behalf of the School, its management, and each department. We wish you the bravery and tenacity necessary to endure and face these difficult moments. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones. 

Act Think CARE !

Loïck Roche
