Published on 28 June 2019

SKEMA Business School’s MSc International Business programme has been ranked third in the Masters in Management 2019 ranking published by The Economist.

This is the first time SKEMA has participated in the ranking process for this category. In this second edition of the rankings, 40 schools were shortlisted by The Economist. 

SKEMA places first on these criteria: 
  • Open career opportunities
  • Faculty-to-students ratio
  • Languages on offer
  • Range of access to overseas study programmes 
SKEMA places second on the following criteria:
  • Faculty quality 
  • Geographical diversity 
In addition to the criteria related to academic excellence, the ranking is based on students' and graduates' level of satisfaction with the programme.

Alice Guilhon, dean of SKEMA, is delighted with this result. “It is a source of pride for SKEMA’s MSc International Business to be placed third worldwide. The excellence of this programme at our international campuses, the richness and diversity of our students’ and graduates' backgrounds contributed significantly to this result," she said.

As president of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles (CGE), the association of institutions of higher education and research, Alice Guilhon also highlighted "the excellence of French schools which have, once again, demonstrated the quality of their programmes that meet the needs of the market and innovate constantly."

SKEMA's MSc in International Business is a global, multi-campus programme. Accredited by the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles (CGE). This MSc offers students the opportunity to study on several continents and territories where SKEMA is located: Brazil, China, France, the United States, and soon in South Africa (from the 2019-2020 academic year). With students from more than 40 nationalities at SKEMA’s campuses, the school has an average employment rate of 97% (in France and internationally) within six months of graduation. The programme’s strength comprises two main factors that differentiate it: a global economic vision and exposure to the business ecosystems of different continents.
