SKEMA Business School is a private Higher Education institution, which is classified as non-profit. It was founded in 2009 when the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce, Lille and CERAM Business School, Sophia Antipolis merged together. SKEMA is approved by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research as an EESPNG (Private Establishment for Higher Education declared to be of public usefulness). It also holds a place among the 1% of business schools around the world to have 3 international accreditations, EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA, which form the so-called Triple Crown. SKEMA is a multi-campus business school and its sites are located in 5 different countries.Show more
Of course! I would recommend SKEMA for its quality courses and well -structured industry set curriculum. I would say the chance of getting an internship and job is also quite high after your study because of its reputation too. But please! remember one thing! a certificate from SKEMA is not gonna make everything unless you speak good French getting a job around here is quite tough.
But, if you purely seek an engaging industrial experience course, I would definitely give a go for SKEMA.
International experience (I had an amazing experience in the China’s campus and i got to learn Mandarin) – fun student life – great career opportunities and good career advisors – good quality of coursesView more
Skema Business School is a quite good school, presents all around the world (China, USA, Bresil, South Africa) with very interesting and diversified programs. The quality of teaching is good, particularly within the international campuses.
However, the French bureaucracy is sometimes very present and there is a lack of flexibility from the Skema staff to understand our situation. Besides, the student life is less developed than in other schools (there are less student associations for instance).
Skema is a quite good school amongst business schools. But there is a lack of flexibility sometimes from the staff. Skema is supposed to be a business school like the American business schools (same programs, masters, etc) but in reality, the French bureaucracy is an issue.
Moreover, the new Paris based campus is supposed to be the main campus in France with the most important programs taught. But for now, it is still the Sophia based campus where there is a major part of the programs. It is an issue because the campus is very far away in France.
Nevertheless, the teachers are very good, particularly in the international campuses.
I really enjoyed my years at Skema Lille.
The strong points are the internationality because we have access to the different campuses without selections, therefore accessible to all and also from many partner universities. This experience really brings a lot of things, I went, for example, a semester in Brazil on the Skema campus.
There is also a quality of teaching with professors recognized in their field which brings very interesting and current courses.
Associations occupy an important part in our curriculum … and there is a choice!
We have the opportunity to do a lot of internships, which is essential for me on our journey.
Finally, Skema Lille is a great living environment in the center, in a city that I discovered and that I love now !!
Skema is actually an international school : you can study in the 7 campus of the university (China, Brazil, France, United States and South Africa). Good teachers and the school forces us to do several internships in France and abroad. A lot of activities with other students and an excellent academic courses.View more
I am currently in a Specialized Masters in Wealth Management in sandwich courses. The lessons given by SKEMA are very enriching. Being in a specialized Masters, each course will be of great help in my professional career. The speakers are very competent, they are not just teachers, they know their chosen field and know how to share their know-how. It is a very good school that I recommend.View more
I recently completed a Masters (MSc) in Digital Business, Data Analysis and Management in SKEMA in Sophia Antipolis.
We were 15 students which allowed a real personal approach and a great learning experience. It was a good mixture of theory and practical content, such as using data visualisation Tools, simple AI Tools or présentations on data intensive companies and platforms.
Teachers were thoroughly interested in their students and motivated. The programme was very international, with students from 8 or 9 different nationalities. Also interesting that SKEMA is located in the European Silicon Valley Sophia Antipolis, so very close to lots of high tech start-ups.
