Programm​​e outline 

Business consulting is a profession that regularly evolves. Consulting clients are continuously looking for innovative approaches, technologies and capabilities to further increase efficiency and/or create new sources of revenue. ​Aware of this accelerated pace of change, we at SKEMA decided in 2023 to merge our two consulting programmes (Business Consulting & Digital Transformation and International Strategy & Influence) to create a more evolved, multi-campus, state-of-the-art Master: Business Consulting and Decision Intelligence (BCDI).

BCDI builds on the content, curricula, partnerships and alumni of its both predecessors. It combines the use of modern digital technologies with our business acumen to equip our students with the necessary competencies to successfully apply and join top consulting companies and industrial corporations in France and the rest of Europe. Within the business consulting domain, BCDI offers specializations on the high-growth areas of the future: digital transformation, sustainability and decision intelligence. The Master runs along two semesters in two Campuses (Paris and Sophia Antipolis). The first semester focusing on common competences, the second one on specialization tracks.

Specialisation tracks ​

Besides the traditional business consulting skills, the co-creators of our Master have identified the following three specialisation tracks that will be offered during the spring semester (students choose only one track):

  • Digital Sustainability Consulting (Campus Sophia)
    Our students learn the theoretical foundations of sustainability and digital transformation, and how to use them to increase company value.
  • Business Intelligence Consulting (Campus Paris)
    Students will be trained on linking data to decisions and outcomes.
  • Sécurité Economique (Campus Paris, only in French)
    This track is done at the prestigious Ecole Militaire de Paris by the Institut des Hautes Etudes du Ministère de l’Intérieur​
