This year once again, SKEMA awarded Excellence Scholarships to high profile international students in the BBA in Global Management, Master in Management, Mastère Spécialisé and Master of Science programmes. As well as these scholarships, certain students also have Eiffel grants from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the 2016-2017 academic year, for the best international students in master programmes.
All together, over 50 international students from the different programmes were honoured for the occasion in a special award ceremony.
We should mention that all scholarships attributed by SKEMA Alumni are conditional on strict academic criteria and a noteworthy “career” (international work experience, unusual student projects etc.). They are awarded to complement the school’s excellence scholarships for French students.
Margarita Tejeira received a SKEMA Alumni scholarship and an Eiffel scholarship. She is a graduate of a Bachelor in Business and psychology and used to be in charge of digital marketing and CRM for Chanel Latin America. She is a student from Panama in the MSc Digital Marketing and declares: “I am very proud to receive this excellence scholarship from SKEMA – it shows that hard work always pays. Since I come from a developing country, this scholarship is a real chance for my future. I am even more motivated to give of my best both academically and professionally”.
For Matteo Gasparini (graduate from a Masters in Economics and Finance from the Università degli Studi di Milano- Bicocca), an Italian scholarship student in the MSc Financial Markets & Investments (FMI): “It is an honour to have been chosen for this excellence scholarship that rewards all the efforts I have made. It encourages me to continue in the same vein and is an extraordinary opportunity offered by the school and SKEMA Alumni.”
