SKEMA Business School has just signed two new strategic agreements with two 
excellent Chinese academic institutions: Nanjing Audit University and Xian'

NAU-SKEMA Joint School

The NAU-SKEMA Institute is jointly established by SKEMA Business School and 
Nanjing University (NAU). The creation of a joint school with a Chinese 
university is reserved for a very small number of excellent foreign 
institutions, of which SKEMA is now a part.

This institute will start recruiting its first cohort of students in China in 
September 2020 through the Gaokao. This entrance exam to Chinese universities, 
which is reputedly difficult, will allow the recruitment of a large number of 
Chinese students: around 300 each year but on a very selective basis.

They will follow a four-year full-time undergraduate course, which includes 
four hybrid courses of study that offer students a variety of possible career 
- Financial engineering 
- Audit 
- Information management and information systems management 
- Engineering Management

Students will obtain two diplomas: the NAU General Undergraduate Diploma of 
Higher Education and the SKEMA 4-year Global BBA Diploma.

This 2-year joint program begins at the start of the 2020 academic year, with a 
recruitment target of 60 students per year. It is open to candidates with the 
equivalent of a "Bac+3" or "Bac+5". At the end of the 2 years of study, the 
student receives the SKEMA diploma (MSc) and the Chinese Ministry of Education 

"These joint cooperation projects contribute to deepening educational exchanges 
between France and China and I am happy that SKEMA finds its place in them. 
They are also a strong link in the school's SKY25 strategic plan to pursue its 
international development, which is based, in parallel with the opening of 
international hubs, on agreements with the best institutions in the world," 
says Alice Guilhon, SKEMA's Managing Director.
