SKEMA is a founder of Alliance of Silk Road Business Schools


On 9 June 2017 at Ningbo (China), during the 4th China - CEEC Forum for Education Cooperation, the Alliance of Silk Road Business Schools was launched. Its objective is to build up educational collaboration and promote economic growth in the countries located along the economic belt of the Silk Road.

SKEMA, already a member of the University Alliance of the New Silk Road, was honoured by being one of the founder members of this new alliance.

This Alliance of Silk Road Business Schools was created at the initiative of the Education office of Ningbo, and of the University for International Studies of Beijing and the University of Zhejiang Wanli. 

The alliance is made up of 28 universities and institutions from 13 countries from central and eastern Europe, eight universities and institutions from America, France, Korea, Portugal, Sweden and 56 business schools and businesses from China.

As a response to the Chinese government’s “Belt and Road” initiative, the Alliance will try to build up an international platform for mutual exchange and trust among students, teachers, businesses, and governments; the idea is founded on the attractions of Ningbo, the point of arrival and departure of the silk road by sea. The alliance will considerably strengthen strategic cooperation between China and the countries situated along the Silk Road, and the collaboration between industry and education to train highly qualified talents. 

Matthieu Dumont, the director of SKEMA’s Suzhou campus, was invited to speak in front of the representatives of business schools from 20 different countries. He shared with the audience SKEMA’s pioneering experience in setting up foreign campuses and becoming a global business school to train tomorrow’s talents- those who see the world internationally and can manage multicultural teams, constantly adapting to the knowledge economy
