Focus on Digital Careers after Sciences Po

focus on digital careers
The current digital revolution is impacting all of society's actors in all of their relationships and social interactions: citizens, companies, economic and political organizations, all of our activities are now connected, measured, analyzed, stored and predictable. Faced with this profound transformation that affects all sectors of the economy, new professions have emerged: data analyst, data scientist, data protection officer, artificial intelligence or digital transformation consultant...what skills does a Sciences Po profile require in this sector?






School of Management and Impact

"Companies have all gone through, or are currently going through, their digital transition and the platform economy has revolutionised our daily activities. Communication, marketing, finance, strategy, human resources and so on can no longer be understood and managed without a thorough knowledge of the methods and techniques specific to digital technology. Consequently, all the Master’s programmes at the School of Management and Impact, which are highly professionally-focused, include in-depth study of the digital tools specific to each discipline and sector of activity. 

A compulsory “data & digital technology” course (60 hours) common to all Master’s programmes consolidates this sector-based learning. It enables students to put the role of data into perspective, but also to use the social sciences to develop a deep understanding of and a critical approach to the societal, ethical, legal, strategic, and economic issues of the digital world. Students also acquire the tools (from basic to advanced) to develop autonomy in using digital technology, to “speak data” as a digital expert, and to master the fundamental logical and quantitative elements of data and digital technology."

The Digital, New technology and Public Policy stream offered by Sciences Po’s School of Public Affairs is a unique interdisciplinary program in which students acquire the fundamental theoretical, practical and critical skills they need to shape the future of public policy in the digital era.

The courses equip students with the necessary tools to thrive in this area, and to understand the economic, social, legal, political and ethical effects of digital technology (data, artificial intelligence, algorithms, machine learning tools, etc.).
