There are no college or university programs that I know of with a curriculum on CI.  It's a field of study that relies on a variety of skills that are typical in any discipline that is focused on research, analysis and writing.  Personally, I didn't target the field as much as I evolved into it through a series of positions that required some measure of competitive analysis, eventually becoming expert at it.  As it turns out, it was a good natural fit for someone like myself, being systematic, methodical, creative, and curious with a dogged persistence to uncover the details, then weave all that into a tapestry of sorts that provides a big picture view as to what's going on.  That's a mouthful, eh?

What makes you think it's an area you'd like to work in?

So to your question about where you can learn more, I suggest you check out www.SCIP.ORG (Strategic & Competitive Intelligence Professionals) and the Academy of Competitive Intelligence ( ).

Good Luck, stay curious and keep digging!
