The Master in Corporate Strategy is Sciences Po's one-year program for young graduates interested in corporate strategy, entrepreneurship and humanities. It is the ideal program for serious students aspiring to become truly specialized corporate strategists in consulting firms or "in-house", within firms.
Vanita Nathwani, graduated in 2019, has agreed to share with you her experience in this master's programme and what it has contributed to her.
What were your educational and professional background before joining the master corporate strategy at Sciences Po?
I had an undergraduate degree in International Relations from the University of St Andrews including 1 year Erasmus at Sciences Po in Paris. I had also worked 4 years in Asset Management as an Investment Counsellor and Relationship Manager at SEI Investments in London.
What did you expect from this year of study in master Corporate Strategy at Sciences Po? Which skills did you need to develop? How did you benefit from it?
I expected to dive deeper into management, finance, and strategy- to build on my professional skills and research in-depth case studies. I developed my strategic thinking, presentation skills, and team organization skills. I was able to leverage these for my interviewing process at Uber.
What are your professional projects and perspectives
I'm a UK based territory account manager at UBER. I'm focusing on the Uber Eats expansion project across Scotland and have touchpoints with teams all across EMEA.
I'm excited to be part of a global disruptor and feel like Sciences Po helped me make that transition from Finance to Tech at a pivotal point in my career.
