Evolving in an international environment, SKEMA is really aware of how important it is to offer its students the possibility to have an international experience. Although SKEMA students can be in contact daily with students and professors of different nationalities at the School, it appears essential that during their programme, our students be able to have an international experience in the form of an academic exchange at one of our partner institutions.
That’s why SKEMA has developed strong relationships with 90 institutions in 40 countries all over the world (Europe, North and South America, Africa, Asia, Australia) with the possibility for students to do a dual degree at some of them. SKEMA students can spend a semester or a whole year in one of these institutions and thus enrich their management skills in an international environment and develop their cultural awareness.
An academic exchange is not just a holiday abroad: it forms an integral part of the study programme at SKEMA. It does not imply longer studies or additional fees, and a student on exchange has to pass all the courses taken at the partner institution in order to validate his academic year for SKEMA.
Who can apply for an exchange?
All the students of the Grande Ecole program can apply to study for a semester or a year in one of our partner institutions. For the 2010-2011 academic year, 290 students from the “Grande Ecole” programs (Master in Management) are doing an academic exchange.
Any student wishing to apply for an academic exchange should complete his/her application form directly on SKEMA Business School Intranet in mid February.
The information and procedure are available on the intranet.
The selection takes into account:
- the academic level of the student (GPA)
- the foreign language skills
- the general behaviour of the student and his/her implication within the School
