SKEMA alumni in the sector
Olivier Petit, 1995 graduate, managing partner at In Extenso Tourisme Culture & Hôtellerie
"SKEMA’s combination of generalist and sectoral skills is a real asset – few master programmes are capable of providing this.
In the context of a booming global market, of which tourism is one of the most emblematic sectors, SKEMA has an important place to occupy.
I had the opportunity to benefit from SKEMA’s training and I continue to recruit its graduates with great success."
Julie Bourgeois, 2009 graduate, general manager at Peninsula Merchandising
“I am proud today to be leading a unique retail business within the most prestigious hospitality group worldwide: the Peninsula Group.
These two sectors complement each other perfectly and demand a high level of detail, innovation while leveraging on heritage and tradition.
SKEMA Business School opened many doors and contacts and I am still today relying on its network for business opportunities."
