Welcome to the student interview section, where we are sharing views and opinions on academia, but this time from the student's perspective. We thought it'd be interesting to have students answer the same questions we asked in the Deans interview and compare their thoughts. Scroll down to have a look!

    What would your ideal university campus be like?

    A campus that is close to a big city, but at the same time a campus where you are able to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of city life. A perfect example of this is the SKEMA Sophia campus, which is ideal for entrepreneurship as it is located in the city of Sophia Antipolis.

    If i was a Dean, the first thing I would do is ...

    If I were dean, the first thing I would do, is implement a more practical approach to learning: I feel students learn best with something that resonates with the real world.

    The students of tomorrow?

    My ideal future student would have an entrepreneurial mindset, is able to take on the responsibility in selecting their modules and also studies a range of subjects. They will also have the ability to effectively engage in group work with both students, external consultants and professors / researchers.

    My vision of the ideal student-industry relations

    I cannot give an objective answer, given that networks are mainly established and built at University fairs, conferences & also with our own initiative.

    If i was a Dean, the first thing I would do is ...

    Provide more opportunities to people from disadvantaged backgrounds. I think scholarships are important for students, and I would also encourage and invite influential people to give guest lectures, giving students the opportunity to learn something new. Our cities are full of untapped talent and it is not the lack of education that holds them back, but the lack of awareness.
