Master program


FIRST YEAR ("M1" year): 

Students joining the M1 programme at SKEMA will study Advanced Business Management. This is the first year of a two-year master programme whose principal aim is to help you develop a deeper understanding of business management principles and provide you with an opportunity to develop your international experience. 
All courses are taught in English and followed by students across all SKEMA campuses. Depending on your academic background and choice of M1 programme, you will study two prerequisite courses and one refresher course or elective. 
The prerequisite courses will be taught as of the beginning of the autumn semester. You may choose one "Academy Profile" course that allows you to gain further experience in a chosen academic field.
During the autumn semester, you will also be asked to choose your spring 2020 track choice.
You may choose between: 
  • an international campus, 
  • the CFA Level 1 specialisation (Paris campus only)
  • undertake a work experience year (césure) from January to December 2020 before returning to complete your M1 year in January 2021 with an academic semester on an international campus, CFA Level 1 or an exchange with one of our university exchange partners.
Students joining the school may also apply for the, two-year apprenticeship track (Lille, Paris), two-year specialised tracks.
These programmes are taught on the Lille campus and are accessible via a selection process and subject to number of places available: DEMOLA, CFA Level 1. (Paris campus only)
From September, students will be able to choose their academic track choice for the spring semester. Certain track choices may be subject to selection criteria. Students are given the opportunity to meet with their academic director to help them ensure that their final choice is coherent with their personal and professional goals. 


SECOND YEAR ("M2" year): 

Specialisation and getting into the world of work
During the second year, students acquire a specialisation. This final-year specialisation and internship are key to employability. 
This year’s teaching and content is entirely in English as part of an MSc (for students enrolled in the specialised masters, teaching is also carried out in French).
Students may do this year on any of SKEMA’s campuses worldwide (one semester or one year), in academic exchange (one semester or one year), as a double degree (“Master 2” with our partners) or in apprenticeship (all French campuses).
