Benjamin Lehiany, the programme director on careers with the MSc International Strategy & Influence:
"Strategy and competitive intelligence go hand in hand. Discovering, analysing, protecting and diffusing information to support and feed efficient decision-making becomes key in the knowledge economy. Indeed, new technologies constantly push the limit of the volume and rapidity of data collection and processing, notably through the so-called “big data” revolution.
At the same time, the internet and social networks accelerate the spread of information all around the world. Mastering knowledge is thus a must for firms competing in a constantly changing environment. It helps with anticipating and protecting against risks through intelligence techniques (strategic, technological, regulatory, societal…) while allowing firms to find new business opportunities and to shape their environment through influence strategies.
The MSc International Strategy & Influence provides the skills and methods to conduct strategic analysis and influence programs, as well as understanding organisations and their environment, for starting a promising career. The different jobs graduates get are in the fields of strategy, competitive intelligence, knowledge and risk management. These are mainly consultant, analyst or managers in big companies as well as small ones, located for the main part in Europe. Below are some examples."
