SKEMA was founded in 2009 as a result of the merger between the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce, Lille and CERAM Business School, Sophia Antipolis. The Lille school had been founded in 1892 and CERAM in 1963.
Preparing our students for their future career as competent and responsible professionals is an overarching aspect of our mission. We aim to ensure that our research activities are shared with our students as early and as thoroughly as possible to enable them to benefit from the insights and knowledge generated by our faculty. Our programmes develop research awareness and skills from entry level up to the PhD programmes.
Research is fully integrated into our whole curriculum. We explicitly map the development of research-related skills throughout our programmes. Entry-level students follow a semester-long course entitled "Frontiers in Business Research".
In this course, our top research faculty present aspects of their own research and follow-up courses provide context enabling the students to apply research concepts.
All students write a master thesis at the end of their studies, in the form of an applied research project. In the master programmes, students may opt to take additional courses leading to an MSc in Research which would open the possibility of admission to a PhD programme and an academic career.
