Corporate strategy roles can take a number of different forms – from requiring experience in investment banking or consulting to an understanding of data-driven business analysis and coding languages. At UpScored, we think a lot about what skills are required for different roles, and on the flip side, what types of careers people are most interested in.

In our post on Women For Hire, we discuss the most popular job openings on our site (hint: the three most in-demand non-technical opportunities are all strategy roles). We also took our research beyond the job description to ask an expert: what does it really take to be a stellar corporate strategist? You can find the most popular roles and our interview with former corporate strategist and HBS alum, Alexandra Nicholson, here.
