The Master in Corporate Strategy is the one-year program from Sciences Po for young graduates interested in corporate strategy, entrepreneurship and humanities. It is the ideal program for serious students aspiring to become truly specialized corporate strategists in consulting firms or “in-house”, within firms.

About

Objectives

The Corporate Strategy programme offered by the Sciences Po focuses on business fundamentals and, in particular, provides students with critical knowledge concerning financial and strategy skills. These foundational courses are contextualized and grounded in the humanities through Sciences Po’s core curriculum courses in political science, law, sociology, history and economics and completed by specialized skills training in entrepreneurship.

In particular, the Master in Corporate Strategy will:

  • Foster their analytical capacity through a multidisciplinary approach
  • Develop their managerial skills in general, with an emphasis on leadership, negotiation and digital skills
  • Offer a privileged connection to Sciences Po’s network of corporate partners and facilitate access to the labor market
  • Prepare for recruitment processes by providing intense and thorough case-cracking tutorials all year long

Innovative teaching methods

The master emphasizes interdisciplinary analytical tools and hands-on training workshops as essential to understanding and performing in the field of corporate strategy.

It is built on a case study approach that is further enriched by the experience and the diversity of the cohort. A high level of interaction is fostered by the small size of the class (the program enrolls 25 to 30 students a year).

Students also have access to the full curriculum of Sciences Po’s Department of Economics in business, management, finance and economics as well as Sciences Po’s graduate “common core curriculum” in the humanities. They may choose from a wide range of courses and workshops offered in English and French, according to their individual academic and professional needs and interests.
