     The name SKEMA School
     of Knowledge Economy
        and Management,
            defines the school’s ambition: to be the point of reference among
                           business schools internationally.

            Skema Business School is a learning community committed to the creation and transmission of knowledge and practices
         in management. The vision, mission, DNA and values on which the strategy is based are completely in keeping with the world’s
                       economic evolution: globalisation. Since its creation, Skema has taken up the challenge of being
                                            a globalised school through its multi-campus structure.
