SKEMA & Microsoft partners to make France the AI nation


Make France the AI nation: an announcement from Microsoft today at a press conference in parallel with the AI for Humanity summit held at the College de France. The tech giant will be investing 30 million dollars  in France over three years.

Microsoft wants to use its ecosystem to encourage public trust in AI by creating Impact AI, a think tank and action group, and Compétences AI, a national programme promoting the acquisition of competences in AI, the cloud and coding for all.   

A strategic partner of Microsoft, SKEMA is proud to be fully associated with this campaign in favour of AI. 
“AI will have a profound impact throughout all fields of management. It is therefore vital to encourage a new type of leadership. Such leaders will need to combine highly specialised technological skills, especially in AI, with a solid knowledge of management. Companies that maximize their use of data in all their functions will have a definite competitive advantage. Microsoft shares this viewpoint and we wanted to strengthen our strategic partnership with them to develop a new range of hybrid programmes combining technology and management, both for students and in continuing education,” explained Alice Guilhon, general director of SKEMA Business school
SKEMA Business School will be developing hybrid programmes on site and online via Microsoft’s Hub. In February 2018, SKEMA announced the launch of an on-site Master of Science (MSc) in partnership with Microsoft. The programme will be operational in March 2019.
