New campus will host Master in Management students

France's SKEMA Business School has announced that it has partnered with Fundação Dom Cabral to open a campus in Brazil.

The new campus will be based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil's sixth largest city, which is about 450 kilometers north of Rio de Janeiro. Initially, students from the school's Master in Management program will study on the new campus.

Fundação Dom Cabral will provide operational and curricular support, including "customized content for their courses related to Brazilian business aspects," according to a SKEMA press release.

SKEMA chose Belo Horizonte because of its importance as an economic center in the country. The city is home to a strong service industry and an emerging technology sector; international firms like Google and Fiat have established offices there.

With the new Brazil location, SKEMA now has six campuses around the world. Other locations include Lille, Paris, and Sophia Antipolis in France; as well as Raleigh (USA), and Suzhou (China).

The new campus is set to open in September.
