The emphasis on a truly international experience (between six months and two years abroad)gives students an important insight into cultural differences and unfamiliar business environments, making them highly employable and attractive in the future business world.
The bachelor's degree is a first-level undergraduate degree.
This qualification is a well-recognised standard among companies which recruit in an international environment.
A bachelor's degree allows entry directly into the workplace or entry into a higher level course such as a master of science, which, after 12 to 18 months of study, leads to a master's degree (‘bac+5’).
We offer two intakes in the school year, one in September and the other in January.
Applicants must hold a minimum of a French general baccalaureate or an equivalent foreign diploma (12 years of primary and secondary school).
Intensive English courses are offered enabling students to reach the level required by the partner universities.
The admissions procedure comprises five distinct parts:
- Academic dossier (report cards from the two last years of school, CV, cover letter)
- Extra-curricular portfolio: reference letters, activity reports for voluntary work and other, sports results, artistic work, other diplomas, and other relevant documents.
- Test TAGE post-bac®: for French-speaking students only (more info)
- English: optional for first-year entry
- Interview (more info)
Admissions to second or third year
- A student who has already begun higher education may request a parallel admission into second or third year:
- Students with a background in management may transfer their ECTS credits and join in second year (with 60 ECTS credits) or in third year (with 120 ECTS credits). Students who enter in this way may apply for any specialisation in the 1-Year Mobility track or Global Business Development in the 2-Year Mobility track.
- Students without a background in management may enter on the basis of equivalent studies. This will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
- Students entering in second or third year must provide an English language test score.
The degree programme is based on 240 ECTS credits shared equally among general courses, basic management, courses with an international outlook and specialised courses.
& electives *
* 60 ECTS credits
The general courses cover the skills necessary for anyone holding a position of responsibility, whether this be supervising people or managing an activity that adds value to the firm. These courses comprise IT skills, written and verbal communication, ethics and the essentials of mathematics.
The fundamentals of management are the core of the programme. Bachelor in Global Management students acquire the knowledge and skills essential to different aspects of management: accounting, general management, marketing, quality, human resources, value creation etc.
Bachelor in Global Management students have marketing courses that are specific to the international campus where they are studying (United States, China etc.); they also learn human resources from an intercultural perspective, the courses in contract law and intellectual property law are related to the location of the site where they are studied; the same is true of courses in international negotiation.
Specialisations & electives
Students are free to choose courses from the SKEMA course catalogue or that of our partners. This means that they can acquire knowledge and skills in line with their individual career plan. Students may also enrol in a specialisation, taking a number of recommended advanced courses; these are recognised by a special mention on the diploma.
The diploma is awarded after validation of at least 40 compulsory courses. However, there is no maximum limit to the number of courses taken and students are free to follow more than the minimum number of modules at no extra cost.
