Through this alliance, SKEMA intends to develop a new European base from EADA's Barcelona campus. EADA will benefit from the presence of SKEMA’s campuses in five continents. At the same time, the two schools also aim to open this new four-year post-baccalaureate programme to candidates from Spanish-speaking countries.
"This post-baccalaureate double-degree programme is a new opportunity to develop SKEMA’s brand in the European continent and South America with EADA. It also offers our students in the SKEMA Global BBA – a programme which has 50% international students representing more than 60 different nationalities – the possibility of studying on the EADA campus and immersing themselves in the global city of Barcelona, with its ultra-dynamic economic centre, where they will be able to follow the sustainable innovation specialisation," explains Patrice Houdayer, Director of Programmes, International and Student Life at SKEMA Business School.
"As part of its development, EADA wanted to enter the field of post-baccalaureate BBA programmes, by favouring a partnership with a school that is highly recognised internationally. This is possible thanks to SKEMA, which will design a programme with us that meets the best international BBA standards, and which will confer the degree of bachelor and the visa," says Jordi Diaz, Dean at EADA.
From September 2022, students in the new EADA X SKEMA Global BBA double-degree programme will be able to spend the first two years on the EADA campus in Barcelona, then go on a mobility programme in the third year on one of SKEMA's seven campuses across the world, and then spend their fourth year either in Barcelona or on one of SKEMA's campuses, depending on the specialisation they have chosen.
