SKEMA Executive MBA is a high level continuing education programme for experienced executives wishing to increase their managerial and strategic skills.

The SKEMA Executive MBA programme allows managers to understand new organisational models suited to constantly changing complex environments. It also aims to foster participants' overall strategic vision.

This intensive programme, taught entirely in English, offers general modules which include Organisational Dynamics, Leadership in Multicultural Project Environments, Managerial Accounting, Complexity in Management & Business Decisions, Business Policy & Strategy, Supply Chain Management, Information Systems Management, Corporate Finance, Macro and micro-economics and Social Impact, Marketing, and Operations Management. It also offers a specialisation in Project Management and in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. At the end of the course, a Capstone Project will allow each participant to identify key strategic issues which are challenging for their own organisation or focus on ongoing improvement initiatives. 

The SKEMA Executive MBA is particularly well suited for managers who have pressing professional commitments. It adopts a blended learning format. The pedagogy thus combines e-learning modules with interactive seminars led by renowned professors in their fields. The programme is designed to optimize face-to-face sessions by distance mode preparation through highly structured modules that participants can adapt to their personal and professional schedule. Face-to-face seminars take place in Paris and Lille (France), and in three other locations: Raleigh (USA), Belo Horizonte (Brazil) and Suzhou (China).

Through a unique value chain, that encompasses teaching, coaching, incubation and acceleration, this specialisation allows each participant to think, design, test and launch an entrepreneurial project in a global context on six innovative territories on four continents, benefiting from the best of each local ecosystem. Entrepreneurship is the art of recognition and exploitation of opportunities. This is valuable within organisations as well as in the establishment of new ventures.


This specialisation is devoted to new approaches to management and leadership. It develops participants’ analytical skills as well as their sense of initiative and the agile mindset essential for leading project-based organisations. Managers in such organisations have to think in terms of results-based performance. They must create an environment that nurtures continuously successful projects. This requires exemplary piloting of costs, effective project governance and management of risks resulting in new potentially profitable opportunities. The success of such organisations lies in their capacity to respond to – or even to go beyond – clients’ expectations on all projects undertaken on their behalf.


Most of the teaching staff on SKEMA's Executive MBA hold PhDs, and all are selected for their high academic level and operational knowledge of companies. SKEMA is accredited by the Project Management Institute's (PMI) and the Global Accreditation Center (GAC), and has a partnership with Metier OEC, a European leader in training and project management consulting. Consultants from Metier OEC are recognised as being at the forefront of project management today.
