Look at the world differently with the new MSc in Geopolitics & Business at Rennes School of Business

From September 2021, Rennes School of Business will launch its new Master of Science in Geopolitics & Business, in partnership with Risk & Ops and the Summit of Minds.

Culture as an instrument for action

The new MSc in Geopolitics and Business at Rennes School of Business focuses on learning the fundamentals of management through the use of a geopolitical approach in order to obtain the key to an in-depth understanding of international affairs. Students now have the option of continuing their geopolitical studies to a master’s level through highly operational training with a focus on two pillars: strategic watch and influence.

The programme is focused on the three defining characteristics of the future:

  • The rebirth of identities
  • The digitalisation of society on a global scale
  • The return to nature as a source of inspiration and regeneration
