The SKEMA Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business is a four-year degree program that prepares students to succeed in today’s global economy. With six fully-integrated campuses worldwide, no other business school offers such a multicultural, immersive experience.
SKEMA’s North American location, in Raleigh, NC, gives the students the choice between one year to two-year mobility abroad at an international location. Therefore, the students will also have the possibility to return to the US for their fourth year and do their capstone project or to continue their fourth year abroad in order to get a double degree or another specialization. This unique program allows students the opportunity to be immersed in the local environment while learning the language of business, thus serving as a powerful springboard for launching their professional career or for further studies at the MBA and master’s level.
