SIGEM: SKEMA continues its momentum and ranks sixth

23 July 2021
SKEMA Business School has accelerated its rise in the SIGEM rankings by moving up to the sixth position. This is an increase of two places compared to the 2019 ranking. A detailed review of this unprecedented progression.
On the ground, this rise has resulted in a net increase of 12% in eligible candidates for 2021, i.e., double the number from 2019. Thus, over the last 8 years, SKEMA has shown a constant progression and gained seven places in the SIGEM. 
“This is the result of the work undertaken by SKEMA over the last few years in its Master in Management programme, by firstly introducing continuum courses in 2018 via the ThinkForward programme and then by constantly innovating and developing with new campuses (the flagship Grand Paris Campus at the beginning of the year, a new City Campus in Brazil for the start of the 2021 academic year, and other locations soon) and multiple agreements with exceptional international academic institutions such as American UCLA Extension, Berkeley, NYU SPS and Loyola (New Orleans), and the European LMU (Munich)”, said Patrice Houdayer, Vice-Dean in charge of Programmes, International and Student Life at SKEMA Business School.
An ambitious strategyIn addition to this in-depth work on its teaching, SKEMA owes its attractiveness to SKY25, an ambitious strategic plan which sets out the five-year objectives of a truly global research institution. 
In total, 7909 candidates chose SKEMA for the entrance exam. In proportion, this represents 81% of the candidates of the BCE - Banque commune d'épreuves.
