SKEMA and Nanjing Audit University hold project management summer school

Published on 13 September 2020

From 3 to 13 August, 32 finance and audit students from China took part in the very first project management programme offered online by SKEMA and its partner Nanjing Audit University (NAU).

​For eight days, the students attended 20 hours of classes taught in English on Teams. The seminar was led by professor Yves Alliot.

A leading specialist in project management within the Airbus group, Yves Alliot furthers the development of new markets and key international projects. He adapted his course to the students' backgrounds and requirements, alternating between teaching basic knowledge of project management and sharing his invaluable experience, with numerous illustrations from real life.

Project-based learning enabled students to acquire essential knowledge and to grasp and implement project management tools and techniques. 
Through these combined efforts, all of them successfully completed the programme and are now ready to take part in international projects.

"The international labour market is urgently in need of talents like these,” says Yves Alliot.

To quote one of the participants, “This course broadened my knowledge and gave me an international perspective, which will be really useful for my future career.” Another said, “This course helped me to learn in a new way by making everything more active: finding and checking information, understanding the specific requirements of questions, having active discussions with other teammates, and analysing and solving problems with the knowledge we acquired during the course."
This is a great success for this Summer School arising from the partnership between SKEMA and Nanjing Audit University (NAU), a Chinese academic institution of excellence with which SKEMA has created a joint school.
