You have a few options:

1. Use Wireshark to discover the initial IP Skype connect to in order to make calls then block sending any traffic to this IP on your firewall.

2. Block Port 1024, which is used by Skype. They were clever though and the app can also use 80 and 443, which obviously you don't want to block.

3. Use a GPO with a hash rule preventing the app from executing on your companies PCs.
