    The intelligence function is key to reduce uncertainty and facilitate decision making at government and business level. Globalisation and digitalisation as driving forces behind the major changes that have transformed our societies, and an environment characterised by complexity, uncertainty, ambiguity and volatility requires professional profiles specialised in intelligence analysis. In an environment rich in data and information, intelligence analysis is the game changer that makes the difference. Without good training there is no good analysis, and without good analysis decision taking means random play.


    Duration and schedules

    Fridays from 16.00 to 21.00 and Saturdays from 09.00 to 14.00.



    The Programme has an industrial placement module (125 hours) in which the student will apply the knowledge and competences acquired during the Master in leading organisations.
