On 6 June 2016 at La Défense Paris, Alice Guilhon, Director of SKEMA Business School & Michel Kalika, President of Business Science Institute signed a partnership agreeing to set up a Doctorate in Business Administration by distance learning. This programme, taught entirely in English, is set to start in early 2017. It responds to the international demand from managers holding an MBA or equivalent and who want to get a new perspective on their professional experience, create knowledge and defend a doctoral thesis before a panel of international examiners.

The doctorate programme runs over three years and is dispensed via blended learning – a mix of online resources (videos, intranet, bibliographical references) - and individualised distance tutoring. The course content is created by a team of about ten professors from both partner institutions. Each module is organised into “knowledge pods” that course participants cover at their own pace. A dedicated doctorate support team will be available to each doctoral candidate/manager for information and consultation at a distance. This pedagogical approach to the DBA is innovative and will be supported by SKEMA’s KCenter (Knowledge Center) and Business Science Institute faculty.

For Michel Kalika who is also a professor at the IAE LYON, “This partnership is based on our shared view of globalised academic training in Executive Education and the need to innovate rapidly with a solution for managers unable to attend face-to- face training groups. The two establishments are in total synergy – SKEMA with its six campuses, three of which are abroad, and Business Science Institute with its experience of running distance DBAs and its professors - and both want to move forward quickly”.

For Alice Guilhon: “This DDBA responds to a strong demand from international managers who want to study at doctoral level. A bended learning programme offers an excellent way to combine SKEMA’s innovative developments and the efficient performance of global companies. This DBA consolidates SKEMA’s innovative range of Executive Education programmes for managers all over the world, helping them to address the challenges of the knowledge economy.”
