Sopra Steria Next: SKEMA Enterprise Hub's first partner

Published on 13 February 2020

SKEMA Business School and Sopra Steria Next have officially signed a three-year partnership agreement that opens up new prospects for recruitment, research and training between middle-market companies and top tertiary education establishments through an Enterprise Hub.

​Alice Guilhon, dean of SKEMA Business School, and Jean-Claude Lamoureux, executive director of Sopra Steria Next, signed a cooperation agreement at Sopra Steria Next’s premises in Paris on 8 January, in the presence of Philippe Clapin, deputy director of Sopra Steria Next, and Pascale Viala, director of corporate office at SKEMA.

This partnership with digital transformation consulting firm Sopra Steria, a European leader in consulting, digital services and software development, is also the first agreement signed in the context of the brand-new Enterprise Hub that SKEMA is launching in Paris.
Sharing common values centring on innovation, digitalisation and the human element, the two partners will make strides together in the areas of recruitment, employer-brand visibility and curricular innovation.

  • Signed for a duration of three years, the agreement includes several aspects:
    The development of academic content, and SKEMA’s specialised master’s and master of science students receiving assistance from the Sopra Steria Next teams to tackle the challenges presented by digitalisation, UX design and GDPR.
  • SKEMA promoting Sopra Steria Next to its students and alumni by inviting the company to participate in key recruitment events organised on the school’s campuses.
    Sopra Steria Next will thus be participating in the Career Tuesday event on 3 March that will be simulcast from SKEMA’s Paris campus, to present the company, its services and its recruitment process to SKEMA students.
  • SKEMA’s lecturers/researchers contributing to fulfilling Sopra Steria Next’s training and research requirements. 

“Sopra Steria will be the first to draw benefit from the “Enterprise Hub” that SKEMA is launching. The launch of the Hub is the result of our desire to offer companies a single access point to diverse and high-quality services so that they may recruit the digital and AI talents trained by SKEMA, upskill their employees and benefit from the expertise of our lecturers/researchers,” said Alice Guilhon.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with SKEMA and joining its Enterprise Hub. Starting in 2020, our consultants will train the students in subjects relating to the GDPR and UX design and will guide them through a business case study,” explained Jean-Claude Lamoureux. “This partnership is mutually enriching: the students will benefit from our experience and feedback and they, in turn, will bring us a fresh and inspiring perspective,” he added.
