Our one-year multi-campus programme is designed for future global business leaders, providing students with the necessary general management and multicultural skills and knowledge. Each semester, students can study at a different SKEMA campus in Asia, Europe or America; students gain real exposure and experience in different markets.
The same disciplines are taught in each campus, with strong localisation relevant to the location. The autumn/fall semester focuses on globalisation and the way that the region —the Americas, Asia, or Europe— deals with globalisation. In the spring semester, course content on each campus is totally specific to the region.
Our professors come from all around the globe. They are entrepreneurs, innovators, research directors, CEOs, VPs of marketing, directors of finance; and they have worldwide reputations in their fields.
Classes are small enough to allow for close personal contact with teachers and classmates. In recent years, MSc IB classes have been made up of students of some 25, or so, countries. This highly international class composition transforms projects and team work into valuable cross-cultural working and learning experiences.
The teaching approach is applied and participatory: real projects with businesses are carried out so students are operational, employable managers by the time they graduate.
Students on this MSc will understand the challenges and issues associated with sharing knowledge and innovation across borders and continents. The programme strikes the balance between practical business applications and cutting-edge research and ideas.
Core courses provide the knowledge to survive in the global knowledge economy:
All courses and tutorials are taught entirely in English, allowing students to have a perfect command of the business and technical terminology that is expected from international commerce and trade managers in multinational companies.
