Upon enrolling, and thanks to the knowledge I gained quickly during my first year on the programme, I was promoted to participate in major strategic projects.

"Enrolling on to the SKEMA Global Executive MBA has been one of the best decision I haven ever taken in my life. Compared to other schools I included in my benchmark, I particularly liked the format proposed by SKEMA, with six residential weeks over the two-year period, was manageable even with my own business trips, and still offered the possibility to meet peers face-to-face, in an international setting. A truly rewarding experience! Within weeks of my graduation, I got promoted within my company to associate director position and joined the management committee."

"It’s an amazing adventure! The programme’s relevance to the global economy is exactly what I was looking for. The students’ cultural diversity makes debates much more interesting, relevant and enriching both personally and professionally. Courses are intense and delivered by passionate teachers. The pace of work is fast, and the blended-learning format makes it possible to balance professional, personal and student life."

Nathalie Taquet

“The Executive MBA at SKEMA Business School was pivotal in helping me realize a project that was close to my heart: to create my own start-up in Australia: eBottli. The programme gave me the knowledge, skills and confidence to consolidate my business plan. Through Skema Ventures, a service available to SKEMA students designed to help you launch your entrepreneurial project in global contexts, I got in touch with Business Angels and received help in my pitch and Business Plan review. I launched my company in 2019.”
