Program Description


The official master's degree in Intelligence is an official degree of II livello (second level) of the Pegasus University of Italy, which gives access to the doctorate due to its adaptation and reception to the Bologna plan and the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). With this master's degree, the student can choose a mention in Economic Intelligence or in Security and Defense, depending on the elective subjects that he chooses.

Although the need to know is an innate characteristic of the human being, as well as the need to anticipate events, the chaos derived from the complex reality in which we move requires a constant effort, usually imperceptible, to order such complexity, equipping itself with instruments that allow the decoding of existing information. This official master's degree of Intelligence makes us see in this way that the human being faces the real world and the information it contains through brain processes that allow ultimately transforming information - whether public or private - into knowledge.

But knowledge is not linear or irreversible, as the different informative conceptions of the 80s of the 20th century try to describe it (exemplified in the Pyramid of Knowledge of Russel Ackoff in 1989). Nowadays, knowledge is not enough and it is necessary to go a step further, getting it to be understood.

In this official master's degree in Intelligence we will try to analyze in depth what intelligence is and how it is applied, extrapolating its use of the structure in which it is used. In this way, intelligence as a tool to reduce uncertainty in any decision-making process has a direct application in both the public and private sectors. However, in this course of intelligence you will not find long theoretical distinctions about what is intelligence or its surnames nor will it be centered on a non-systematic classification of collection techniques or on the nonscientific techniques of analysis (structured techniques of analysis).

On the contrary, this course in intelligence is oriented to how to use intelligence in your professional performance from theoretical rigor and conceptual clarity, yes, but with a practical approach of how to use this tool in professional performance.

We start from the conviction that intelligence can not be understood or studied in a vacuum, independently. In fact, it is necessary to pay attention to the relationship that this (the intelligence) has with other parts of the structure and the temporal space in which it is applied.
