SKEMA Business School launches 'SKEMA Law School for Business'
PARIS, Nov. 7, 2022, /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

SKEMA Business School inaugurated its law school "SKEMA Law School for 
Business" in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on 28 October 2022.

The creation of SKEMA Law School for Business is part of the school's SKY25 
strategic plan, which aims to develop a 'comprehensive' institution to go 
beyond management disciplines and respond to trans-disciplinary issues. This is 
being done through the creation of three new schools in law, artificial 
intelligence and, in the coming months, geopolitics.

The objective of the law school in Belo Horizonte is to train aspiring 
professionals in the next 20 years with a global, multidisciplinary, and 
technological approach, capable of acting in an international environment with 
a multicultural prism. 

SKEMA Law School for Business is structured around several programmes and 
online courses:

A state-approved five-year Bachelor's in Business Administration programme that 
prepares students for judicial law, technology law and business law.
 Four master of science (MSc) programmes with several specialisations: digital 
law, judicial law and technology, start-up law, AI and blockchain.
A 'Law and Artificial Intelligence' nano degree (online course, open to all)
The educational content is based on a network of international researchers.

According to Edgar Jacobs, coordinator of the law courses, 'The strength of 
SKEMA Law for Business is that it offers students completely different 
professional insertion perspectives, at the interface of law and new 
technologies, which they did not have until now. This is because SKEMA Law 
School for Business can combine traditional law teaching with all the areas of 
expertise of the business school: international and multiculturalism, 
management, ethics, new technologies, artificial intelligence, etc.'

For Geneviève Poulingue, Dean of SKEMA in Brazil, 'The law school focuses on 
developing skills and competencies in our students that go beyond the basics of 
law, with a focus on innovation in the curriculum and teaching practices. Our 
intention is to train professionals prepared to work in the global and digital 
context, with a focus on people, diversity, and ethics, without neglecting 
basic and soft skills. In Brazil, this is an ideal combination for a degree of 
excellence in the field of law.'

Established in Brazil since 2015, SKEMA has 1,000 students this year in its new 
city campus, located in the heart of Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas
