Recruitment is carried out on a rolling admissions basis. However, given the limited number of places, candidates are advised to apply as early as possible.
Students can join this programme either in the fall (September-December) or spring (January-April) intakes. Since a start in the spring semester might be a challenge (the academic part of the programme has been designed, typically, for a start in fall), we require that spring-intake students have a few years' business experience.
Eligible to apply to our 12-month programme are students who hold a four-year university degree or equivalent + two months minimum of professional experience. In some cases, a three-year degree with substantial professional experience can be accepted.
Students can also join our Two-Year MSc
. Students who are eligible to apply hold a three-year university degree or equivalent. The Two-year MSc is the ideal choice for those who wish to do a year of study on the business fundamentals before specialising on the MSc specialistion itself. Info on the Two-year MSc
An English language test is required for all students. In some cases, the English test can be waived (for English native speakers or degree holders from an English-speaking country). Minimum language tests scores are TOEFL (530), TOEFL IBT (71), TOEIC (810), IELTS (6)
GMAT/GRE is not mandatory, however a good score strengthens the application.
The selection process takes place in two steps:
Step 1/ Eligibility: Online application
A selection committee examines the application submission taking into account the candidate's qualifications and professional experience.
Step 2/ Admission: Online interview
If the application submission is judged satisfactory, candidates undergo an online, face-to-face interview with the programme director, via Microsoft Teams. The admission interview enables SKEMA to understand the candidate’s motivation for applying and career goals, as well as to assess the candidate’s suitability for our programme.
The interview lasts about 30 minutes and is based on a typical job interview. Successful candidates will be admitted based on the application form and the interview.
