"This MSc is a comprehensive programme with high quality teaching. It’s given me a practical and global vision of company strategy.
The focus is on the challenges facing companies today and it has prepared us to be immediately operational in positions of responsibility.
The vast majority of the class have already been recruited for positions as analysts, strategy consultants or digital transformation consultants in international companies."Update, Jan 2020: "After my six-month internship, I got hired as an account executive for a competitive intelligence Saas tool. This work enables me to address strategic topics with C-level executives and managers who need to detect potential threats or business opportunities"
"This MSc in International Strategy and Influence is what I was looking for after my experience in consulting.
The programme bridges academic knowledge and practical skills with a number of case studies. It also offers an opportunity to take classes by INHESJ at the Ecole Militaire.
SKEMA has provided support on extra-curricular activities and job hunting.
Thanks to SKEMA, I did an internship in the Department of Corporate Strategy at Engie and am currently pursuing my new career path at Axonal-Biostatem, a leading French contract research organisation (CRO) in the pharmaceutical industry."

"I chose the master in International Strategy & Influence because it is the only programme of its kind that combines international corporate strategy and competitive intelligence. In my opinion, it is totally fundamental to master these two domains to work efficiently in a globalised world.
This master has very strong partnerships with big consulting companies such as Boston Consulting Group or Capgemini Consulting, meaning there are great employment opportunities for me, and the other students.
I've found an internship as a junior consultant in management and organisation at Bartle Business Consulting, Paris. I think the combination of theory and practice offered on this MSc is the best way to be well prepared for the business world."

This master is very rewarding; we can meet and interact with some of the best worldwide players in strategy and competitive intelligence.
I’m very interested in getting the “certificate of economic security” from the “Institut National des Hautes Etudes de la Sécurité et de la Justice”.
I am learning from very competent people and world-renowned teachers. I couldn’t have chosen a better programme for my future professional plans."
Class of 2014-15
"Since doing a gap year in the export department of a leading food-processing group in Paris, I had been planning on doing a “V.I.E” (international internship programme) in sales development.
Towards the end of the MSc year, I was very happy to get confirmation of my recruitment (via V.I.E.), in the US, as national sales manager in a company specialised in imported food with first-class working knowledge of distribution and marketing in the US.
Thanks to the solid background I have developed in the MSc International Strategy & Influence, I feel confident about facing all the challenges of this exciting mission."
"This is the perfect programme for people who love strategy and aspire to effectively learn about the way businesses grow and evolve in a constantly changing world.
Classes are organised in a way that students acquire both practical and theoretical knowledge.
I also did the “Sécurité Economique” track which gave me the great opportunity to study at the Ecole Militaire and learn from people of diverse backgrounds.
I am currently doing my internship as a defense and security consultant at Sopra Steria."
