SKEMA Business School

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 campus at NC State on Centennial Campus. Working closely with NC State's Poole College of Management, SKEMA brings between 130-300+ students to their school on Centennial campus each semester and continues to develop new partnerships and programs.

SKEMA US Campus Study Program - Application Process

SKEMA students applying to studying at the US Campus for a semester or a year, must submit their applications online ( Students should select the "SKEMA" option under Special Programs. Do NOT submit more than one application.

Please be sure to enter the information completely and correctly. The address, email, and phone information should be your current physical address and contact information in France or abroad (not here in Raleigh). Use the application's calendar icon to correctly select your birthday - most errors in the application occur because the US uses a month/day/year format for dates.

You will receive a confirmation email after your application is submitted and approved (the process can take several days). You will also receive an email from NC State with your Unity ID, Student ID, and initial default password once your application has been accepted.

You can log into MyPack Portal with your Unity ID and initial default password to access your personal information and apply for campus housing. You must reset your password after your first log-in by using the Unity Password Change Tool. After changing your password, you then need to create your User Identification and Authentication questions (UIA).

NOTE: Once you have been processed by the system, you may receive a notification about charges to your student account. If you have applied for NC State housing, you are responsible for paying those housing costs. However, SKEMA students do NOT have to pay the student fees ($1,084.08 for the 2013-2014 school year). Those fees will be paid by SKEMA Raleigh, but you will receive a notification that the charge has been posted to your student account.
