Amazon Campus Challenge: two SKEMA teams selected in Top 5

Published on 12 July 2019

After winning the first edition of the Amazon Campus Challenge in 2018, SKEMA students are again in the spotlight this year. Two teams from the school have made it to the Top 5; they will compete in the final round at the Amazon France headquarters.

Amazon Campus Challenge provides a one-of-a-kind entrepreneurial experience in e-business and is reserved for students at master’s level. The objective is to help a very small enterprise (VSE) or small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) launch online sales through Amazon Marketplace. From October to June, the student-groups work together with the company, completely independent of Amazon. The task is to define and set up an efficient and sustainable e-business strategy for the company, over a period of just four months.

In the beginning of the process two teams from SKEMA were selected for the final round out of over one hundred teams. They performed well and bagged fourth and fifth places, encouraged by Héloïse Traisnel and Graciella Badaire, the SKEMA graduates who won the competition last year.

Congratulations to the “D’Connect” team, comprising Nathalie Godard and Fatima Beladassi (Executive Mastère Spécialisé Manager Marketing Data and E-Commerce), and the “Bee” team with Hugo Audoire (two-year MSc) and a student from ESCP Europe.

“Along with Anne Healy from the Careers Service, we are extremely happy with this result. It is especially great to see the Executive MS Manager Marketing Data and E-Commerce (MDCE in French) team in the finals, even though this is the first time they participated. Héloïse and Graciella (SKEMA students who won last year) also attended this grand final. We took the opportunity to talk to each other and compile a list of best practices which will be presented to the SKEMA student teams for the 2019-2020 challenge,” said Jean-François Detout, programme director of MS MDCE, Digitalisation Academy.
