Ever since its creation in 1997, the Economic Warfare School (Ecole de Guerre Economique in French) has been developing an academic curriculum based upon the assumptions that
1) economic struggles have been on the rise for the last 20 years, and
2) information management is the primary means used by contenders to gain the upper hand.
Our methodology goes beyond those traditionally used by corporate management and market competition theories, and are specifically tailored to suit decision-makers' needs.
Our world grows more complex as each day passes by and successful endeavors are built upon high-quality information management strategies, be they turned inward or outward from a given company. As a matter of fact, the latter has yet to come to terms with the many links interlocking the geopolitical, societal and competitive elements that make up an ever-changing environment in which the economy is run.
Because of such a level of intricacy, companies require a broad range of skills in order to address informational warfare on the economic battlefield.
The way Competitive Intelligence is taught at the CCI is specifically tailored to analyze and deal with economic contentions that are fashioned by States and private companies alike.
The global economic crisis strengthens the College for Competitive Intelligence's viewpoint as well as the legitimacy of its teachings and trainings.
Our curriculum and research program are based on a forward-looking risk management methodology.
This is a down-to-earth response to the many new challenges a company must face in the decades to come.
