• French Ambassador to U.S. Celebrates SKEMA's First Year Anniversary

    Saying that the bonds between his country and the U.S. have never been stronger, the French Ambassador to the U.S., Francois Dellatre, celebrated with North Carolina State University, local and state leaders on the first anniversary of a French business school's presence on Centennial Campus. 

    Dellatre told a crowd of invited guests that the two countries share a common desire to innovate and build strong companies that result from active research and development activities. He said SKEMA'S presence at NC STate helped build those global bridges, not just for students, but for the country as a whole. 

    NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson echoed those sentiments in remarks, saying that "the partnership with SKEMA has grown beyond our wildest dreams." He said the presence of the French students on campus has added a new and exciting vibrancy. 

    SKEMA began classes on Centennial Campus in January 2011 with 250 undergraduate and graduate students and has plans to double its class size in the next year. 

    It is one of the largest business schools in France and, besides Centennial, has several other international locations, including China and Morocco. Its Centennial location is its first in North America.
