MASTER OF SCIENCEBusiness Consulting & Decision Intelligence



Programme structure

The MSc Business Consulting and Decision Intelligence runs along two semesters. 

Core courses

During the fall semester, our students acquire three core competences that are simultaneously taught in Campus Paris and Campus Sophia.

  • Business consulting
    We teach project management techniques, consulting tools, critical thinking, research approaches and coach our students to apply them in on-going consulting situations. These courses are taught by senior executives from EY, CapGemini, Frost & Sullivan, Sopra Steria Next, Accenture, Deloitte and Roland Berger.
  • Business acumen
    We give our students an overview on how top companies succeed, starting with the analysis of a strategic environment, to the formulation of a business strategy, going through the relevance of aligned business models and business processes and concluding with an understanding of the importance of organisational and digital transformation. Optimisation techniques as well as globalisation and sustainability trends round up this area. These courses are provided by academic researchers of SKEMA.
  • Decision Intelligence
    Decision intelligence is the application of AI and machine learning technologies, along with data fusion, data visualization and collaboration tools, to augment and improve decision making. We teach our students the distinctive analytical skills and the use of cutting-edge information systems to succeed in the knowledge economy. These courses are provided by decision intelligence specialists.

Three specialisation tracks

Besides the traditional business consulting skills, three specialisation tracks are 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. On the sustainability side, we provide courses on ESG reporting and audits, supply chain decarbonization, energy transition and technology transformation. Within the digital transformation field, we give an overview on modern digital technologies and how companies are using them to further optimize their operations and create new sources of revenue.
  • Business Intelligence Consulting (Campus Paris)
    Students will be trained on linking data to decisions and outcomes.  They will get courses on data science and financial intelligence to create key performance indicators and identify market trends to enlighten management decisions.
  • 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 Ministere de l'Intérieur. Thus, former CEOs, generals, police officers and top consultants in the field will train students about new risks, economic security, web 3.0 encompassing OSINT and crisis management.


​​A master thesis gives students the opportunity to learn and apply academic research methods to deepen further in an area of expertise of their choice.
