Paris, the "City of Lights"
Paris continues to be one of the most stimulating cities in the world as a centre of cultural and economic activity.
At the heart of French business, intellectual and cultural life, Paris hosts millions of visitors year-round who come to marvel at the wealth of history, art and entertainment the city has to offer. Competitive industries, business innovations, high-level education, and tourism have turned Paris into the favourite city of business professionals and young graduates. For career-oriented
young people, Paris is the place to be and Skema’s Paris campus gives students the chance to work and learn in a city of unlimited opportunities.
The campus is located in the Pôle Léonard de Vinci in the heart of La Défense. This modern area is only a 10-minute metro ride from the Champs-Elysées, or 20 minutes from the Eiffel Tower.
La Défense is home to a population of 20,000, with 1,500 companies (15 of which are among the world top 50) employing 150,000 people. Many companies especially banks and insurance companies have left their former neighbourhoods to set up here.
