In January 2011, the SKEMA Business School, one of the top business schools in France with satellite campuses in China and Morocco, opened its first US location at NC State on Centennial Campus. Working closely with NC State's Poole College of Management, SKEMA brings hundreds of students to their school on Centennial each semester and continues to develop new partnerships and programs.

The GTI-SKEMA Partnership

Each semester, the GTI provides for SKEMA students an orientation to NC State University. The staff also provides a 1-credit hour course that provides regional and historical perspectives on cross-cultural issues and includes workshops to facilitate their success at an American university and/or business.

SKEMA students also participate in various cultural, community service, and academic activities as part of the International Cultural Leadership Project.

The GTI also facilitates SKEMA student participation in internships in North Carolina.
