To increase students' awareness of entrepreneurship and innovation, teaching modules exist in most programmes.
The MSc Entrepreneurship & Innovation
in Sophia Antipolis is aimed at students who wish to create innovative companies and allow existing companies to innovate in order to develop. The programme brings advanced knowledge on entrepreneurship and is also an incubator that allows students to work in a "startup" team to prepare the launch of their business.
In addition, the entrepreneurial track “Programme ID
”, on offer as from the L3 academic year leads volunteer students in an effectual entrepreneurial approach to sustainable innovation.
SKEMA's entrepreneurial team has developed a MOOC called Roadmap to the Entrepreneurial Mindset and Toolkit
, consisting of 34 modules. This MOOC, which was developed and financed as part of a European programme, is used by students and is also open to the outside world. To date, it has been used as a methodological and practical guide by nearly 7,000 people.
SKEMA also delivers training courses within the framework of executive education
. The “Coup de Pousse” seminar
, conducted in partnership with Human Ventures, is thus aimed at companies wishing to develop their capacity for innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit of their teams.
The strategic marketing of innovation is a major challenge of business creation. The ISMA 360° method
, created at SKEMA and taught to students is also the subject of a Master Class.
Without practice, theory makes little sense... and vice versa.
At SKEMA, we make the quotation from Kurt Lewin "There is nothing so practical as a good theory" our own. This is why teaching entrepreneurship at SKEMA is based on a close link between academic learning and learning by doing.
This is reflected in inter-campus courses that combine academic fundamentals and entrepreneurial challenges such as the Challenge IE, the Hackathon KM, the Défi Innovation, and the Challenge Jeunes Pousses organised by the Telecom Valley cluster, which brings together management, sciences and law students.
Students also apply their knowledge at the SKEMA Ventures events such as the Hackathon, Bootstrap, Bootcamp, Booster, or Startup Kafés.
