Oral exams for Grande Ecole candidates, a highlight for the SKEMA community

17 May 2019

From 23 May to 6 July, our campuses in Sophia Antipolis and Lille will have the pleasure of welcoming more than 6000 students who passed the written part of the Grande Ecole competitive exam and now have oral language exams and interviews. The inclusion of our graduates on the juries for these exams is an opportunity to contribute to the selection of those who will go on to join your Alumni network and promote your school and your qualification.

The SKEMA Business School is an ever more attractive option, with an increased number of candidates from Preparatory Classes for the written exam listing our school as their second choice of establishment for the BCE competitive exam (+1 place) whereas it was the 5th choice in 2017. The 2019 PGE competitive exam looks set to be even better than last year, both in terms of quality and quantity, and the recent jury for AST entrance is proof of this as they substantially raised their pass mark!

This occasion to welcome those who will one day be our graduates is a rich period in the life of the School, where students, candidates, teachers, administrative staff, professionals and, above all, alumni cross paths. It offers a prime opportunity for reconnection and encounters between Alumni who are returning to their School, some to their very campus, and all those who were with them on their educational path.

We know that once again we can count on a number of you who already have experience in this role. I am very grateful for your loyalty, and I hope to see even more of you take part. If you have never had the opportunity to attend the oral exams, do not hesitate to volunteer, it’s a very enriching experience and it is never too late!

Each morning, generations of graduates meet and get to know each other, and it is a real pleasure to play your part in choosing those who will swell the ranks of the SKEMA Alumni community.


We look forward to seeing you soon!
