Mission and values

​​​​​​​​​​A unique positioning

SKEMA (SCHOOL OF KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY AND MANAGEMENT) is a global school that prepares the business talents of the 21st century - responsible, mobile, multicultural, entrepreneurs with abilities to manage information, data and knowledge.

Multi-accredited, the school is recognised worldwide for its research and its programmes of excellence.

A pioneer in the development of a proactive international strategy, SKEMA's positioning is based on the desire to change the traditional business school training model to better respond to new economic, societal and environmental challenges.

This unique positioning combines excellence, hybrid teaching and multicultural experience.

At Home Worldwide


Following the merger in 2009 of the two schools from which it originated (ESC Lille and CERAM in Nice), SKEMA Business School is experiencing an exceptional trajectory, demonstrating the relevance of its mission.

SKEMA Business School is a global research and higher education institution that trains talents committed to effecting sustainable transformation around the world, through seamlessly interlinking human-centric, management and data disciplines within global contexts, settings and frameworks.

With proven employability and deep skills beyond traditional managerial disciplines, these talents can understand and respond to new global challenges.
