Sophia Antipolis: SKEMA partners with Strathclyde Business School
To continue its development internationally, SKEMA has signed a partnership agreement with the Scottish school in Strathclyde.
The Skema Business School, which consists of three campuses in France, one of them being in Sophia Antipolis, bases its educational project in “the knowledge economy that corresponds to the needs of companies of the 21st Century”. Through these programmes and its research, the business school encourages its students in mobility, adaptability and innovation. In this context, the business school has expanded its international partnerships by signing a strategic alliance with Strathclyde Business School (SBS) on Wednesday 11th July, one of the most reputable schools in Great Britain.
With this partnership, SKEMA will reinforce its presence in Europe, which presently consists of its three French campuses (Sophia Antipolis, Lille and Paris). “Through this alliance with Strathclyde Business School, we can mix our students with English-speaking students” explains Alice Guilhon, Managing Director of SKEMA. The agreement will make it possible to increase the visibility of two schools on the international scene.
Founded in 1947, Strathclyde Business School, whose main campus is in Glasgow (it also has other locations in Europe and Asia) and is the most distinguished school in Scotland with three accreditations (Equis, ACSB, AMBA) and one of the most distinguished schools in Great Britain. The SBS is known worldwide for its innovative capacity in education and for its expertise in research.
The partnership between the two schools will include the launch of three new joint projects at Bachelor, Master and PhD levels, dedicated to global management, tourism and European finance.
Thanks to this agreement, SKEMA and SBS will combine their multi-campus development to attract the best international students on the campuses located through the world: Sophia Antipolis, Lille, Paris, Glasgow, Greece and Switzerland for Europe, Raleigh for the United States, Suzhou for China, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong-Kong, India, Bahrain, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the Sultanate of Oman in Asia and Casablanca for Africa.
Other development projects will be studied by SKEMA, which will be with either SCS or other schools, particularly in Brazil.
