It has also received the highest level of accreditation awarded to degrees in Switzerland by the AAQ. As a result, the MAS degree receives automatic equivalence in most countries worldwide.

Module 1: The Foundations of International Security

This module will provide an introduction and analysis of challenges and actors that shape the security context, such as the growing environment, economy and energy nexus, international law, human security and globalisation. It will enable participants to identify the range of structural and systemic dynamics that shape our understanding of the strategic context, linking different schools of thought and levels of analysis to practice.

Module 2: Actors and Issues in International Security

This module enhances participant understanding of security policy through a focus on the evolving role of traditional and emerging international security leaders, in addition to conflict management and transnational security challenges. These will be considered both from a hard and human security perspective. It will also expose them to a wide range of readings and specialist speakers, both scholars and practitioners.

Module 3: Regional & Global Security

This module will concentrate on cooperative and competitive dynamics in emerging regions such as sub-Saharan Africa; the Middle East and North Africa; conditions in South Asia; and developments in China and the Asia-Pacific region. It will build upon the analysis of challenges,actors and responses in the first two modules within the context of emerging regions.

Module 4: Issues and Concepts in International Security

This interdisciplinary module consists of a number of lectures and research methods seminars held throughout the entire nine-month period. Issues in international security are theoretically analysed within a multidisciplinary approach i.e. history, economics, law, political science and political philosophy. The conceptual lectures academically complement and reinforce the more practical and policy-orientated teaching and seminar work of the first three Modules. They broaden and deepen participant appreciation of the relationships between International Relations as an academic discipline and international relations as a daily practice.

Module 5: Research Paper (10-12000 words)

Under the supervision of professors from both the University and the GCSP, participants will write a research paper on a security policy-related topic. This module allows participants to develop their ability to write a research paper incorporating the lessons learned during the first four modules, and from individual and group analytical work. To provide the opportunity to demonstrate an ability to select useful sources and literature for structured research through pertinent and scientifically valid arguments, in accordance with academic standards.

Please note the themes addressed in the modules may be subject to revision.

Prepare for an efficient leadership within the digital transformation to create value for businesses and society

At the intersection between data science, statistics and management, Business Analytics consists of using data to inform strategic decision making under uncertainty and to optimise business processes. In the digital economy with the proliferation of data, businesses have understood the tactical and strategic importance of analytics - the learning from data - as a critical field to detect and monitor client behaviours and expectations, or even future market trends.

Business Analytics tries to answer the following questions: "What has happened?" (descriptive analytics), "Why did it happen?" (explanatory or diagnostic analytics), "What will happen?" (predictive analytics) and "What should be done?" (prescriptive analytics). As such, Business Analytics is about bringing the business questions to the data.

Investing in Business Analytics can lead to a substantial competitive advantage, which, in certain sectors, ensures prosperity or even survival. Analytics is also one of the most promising approaches for public authorities who, in terms of transport, energy or public health, are required to manage and leverage the explosion of data to generate greater value for both businesses and society.

Given the increasing importance of "big data" in the economy, GSEM offers a new master program in Business Analytics that provides a wide range of career opportunities. This program responds to the growing need of medium to large organisations to leverage the use of data and to transform data assets into better management decisions.

Objectives

  • Support students to manage, analyse and use data in strategic, tactical and operational decision making under uncertainty
  • Prepare students for an efficient leadership within the digital transformation to create value for businesses and society
  • Bridge the gap between university education and professional needs

Career opportunities

With the proliferation of data and the present lack of analytical talent, students of the Master in Business Analytics will have excellent career opportunities across the globe. The McKinsey Global Institute estimated in 2016 a demand of 2 to 4 million “business translators” that serve as the link between analytical talent and practical business applications in the US economy by 2026. In 2017, the Business Higher Education Forum and PricewaterhouseCoopers projected data science and analytics-related job postings in the US alone to grow from 2.35 million in 2015 to 2.72 million by 2020.

Application

The application procedure opens every year at the beginning of January.

Applications close on 28 February for all students.

There is only one Master intake in September every year. Attendance is mandatory for admitted students from day one.
