AT HOME WORLDWIDE



In June 2009 CERAM Business School and the ESC Lille Group merged to become the largest business school in France
with 6245 students, and 138 permanent professors:
SKEMA BUSINESS SCHOOL

The school has five campuses: in France (Lille, Paris La Villette, Paris La Défense, Sophia Antipolis), China (Suzhou) and
Morocco (Casablanca). The campuses are located in well-known science parks or business centres and offer students
exceptional opportunities and career prospects.

Plans for future campuses are under way: the USA (2010), then India, Brazil, Australia and Russia. Students will have a
truly international experience, based on a complete international education taught entirely in English.

The aim of SKEMA is to be among the top five French business schools, and among the top 15 in Europe.
Studying at SKEMA will give you the status of studying for your Bachelor degree at one of the most prestigious higher
education institutions in the world.

THE BACHELOR DEGREE RECOGNISED
THROUGHOUT THE WORLD


The Bachelor degree (or BA, B.SC) is the first qualification level of higher education throughout the world.
In the United States, and many other countries, this degree is of four years duration. In the UK Bachelor degrees
are Honours Degrees and are of three years duration. The difference lies in the way in which subjects are studied;
US style degrees have courses which include general education, core and specialised subjects. Degrees undertaken in
the UK follow specialisations entirely throughout their three year duration. Both type of degrees will gain you access
to Masters Degrees throughout the world.

BACHELOR IN ENVIRONMENTAL MARINE
AND LIFE SCIENCES


The Bachelor in Biology, Oceanography, and Environment (with the possibility of a joint study of Management and
Environmental Sciences) are heavily orientated towards our exceptional coastline and surrounding countryside.
Students are involved with many applied projects (inventories, conservation) and fundamental courses in biology and
chemistry complement the courses in oceanography, and the ecological environment. Specialisation starts in the first
year of study and specialist courses in the chemistry of the environment, global changes and impact on the environment
reinforce the technical skills of students, adding to their international opportunities in the years which follow.
From 2009 onwards, students will have the option of taking the exchange degree for the course in Environmental
Management (7 semesters at SKEMA, 1 semester at a partner university abroad).

Your tutor will help you to settle in, become autonomous, help you plan your work and provide assistance for your
research projects as well as monitor your academic progress.

When it comes to choosing your courses and a transfer university in the second year, your tutor and the staff of the
International Office will be available to assess your preferences and opportunities, relating these to the different partner
university possibilities – providing in-depth information on certain courses, and putting you in touch with former
graduates.

A minimum of six meetings per year are programmed at key moments throughout your studies. Attendance at these
interviews is compulsory.

All tutors are teachers, and the same tutor will handle the academic follow-up throughout your entire stay, guaranteeing
a confidential and personal relationship. With the tutor, you can also discuss things other than academic issues -
accommodation, sporting opportunities, time management and organisation, transport issues, and administrative
formalities.




                          “In essence, the tutor is the daily human contact which enables
                          students to put in place his or her own strategic programme of study
                          with confidence. We, the tutors, give students support in the choices
                          they have made - not only in their studies but in their lives.
                          We are not just professors but people who listen and understand.
                          This comes naturally to us…”
 Malcolm Parker, Tutor.
