We actively support our students either to become entrepreneurs (SKEMA Ventures) or to successfully join the consulting job market through services and events organised by the programme's management and by SKEMA's Talent & Careers department.
After graduation, several of our students have created their own digital companies, taking advantage of the high entrepreneurship environment around the region of Sophia Antipolis and of the strong support provided by SKEMA Ventures.
SKEMA Ventures is the incubator-accelerator created by SKEMA Business School dedicated to impact entrepreneurship and innovation. The director of SKEMA Ventures, Philippe Chereau, is based on the Sophia Antipolis campus and personally supports our programme as lead professor of our strategic management courses.
