SKEMA’s ambition is to train students to become the champions of global knowledge economy: managers who understand, anticipate and adapt to transformations. The workplaces of tomorrow will require specific knowledge and competences linked to a profession (skillsets of different job functions and soft skills).

This is why SKEMA Business School has chosen to organise itself in a disruptive way: in the form of three pioneering academies – Digitalisation Academy, Globalisation Academy and Innovation Academy.

Since innovation, globalisation and digitisation are strong drivers of change within companies, jobs, professions, and our disciplinary functions, these academies provide our students and alumni the opportunity to evolve within professions that may not yet exist and to contribute to an organisation’s sustainable development.

These academies also offer teachers the opportunity to mix disciplines and expertise to produce new teaching content, programmes, approaches, practices, collaborations, and so on.
