Unlike the work of intelligence services, that primarily need to be conducted with the tools of secrecy, intelligence studies scholarship benefits from openness, the encouragement of sharing methods, processes, and sources, as well as full transparency in the process of advancing knowledge, discussing results, solving relevant controversies, and transferring that knowledge and best practices to society.

The School of Security and Global Studies at American Public University and American Military University, School of History, Politics and International Relations at the University of Leicester in the UK, and Rey Juan Carlos University in Spain are leading providers of postgraduate intelligence education in their respective countries, each with an outward-looking institutional focus on internationalization and commitment to maximizing the benefits this can bring to their students. Developed in collaboration, IntelHub aims to connect scholars and researchers from intelligence studies, security studies, related academic fields and disciplines, as well as professionals worldwide to share their knowledge and provide an opportunity to build a robust international network for the study of intelligence.
