The year ended with a celebration of hard work and new beginnings. Students gathered on the terrace and were greeted with tasty dishes, thirst quenching drinks, and varsity jackets to commemorate the year and being a part of the Digital Marketing program. As students mingled amongst themselves on the sunny afternoon, program director Muriel Walas gave a touching goodbye speech.
Each semester, Skema Business School requires students from all six campuses (Lille, Paris, Sophia Antipolis, Raleigh, Brazil and Sozhou) to complete an intense month-long course. Last semester, we completed a course on globalization, and this semester, on “Advanced Strategy.” In addition to in-class assignments, lectures and presentations, this course challenges students to create a strategy plan that could be implemented into the business model of the start up, Milanamos.
Before heading home for Christmas, we celebrated the end of the first semester on campus. We enjoyed food and beverages provided by our MSc director, Ms. Walas, and chatted with our beloved teachers!
Right after the kick-off in September, our class was divided into several groups and worked for one day on five tasks – each related to our MSc program.
