Students will be trained to execute digital innovation and transformation initiatives.

The course addresses the digital revolution which is quickly transforming the nature of many companies in a wide range of industries. Students will hear about the pace of change, emerging technologies and the imperative it creates for organizations.

Unlike a traditional classroom where the instructor presents lecture material, this is divided into two sections – Part 1 Digital Innovation & Transformation and Part 2 The Innovation Practice. Part 1 includes short lectures, interactive sessions, webinars, readings and assignments. Cases studies will be applied to address real-world problems. Interactive sessions and discussion with experts from academia and practice on emerging technologies, trends, challenges will enrich the course experience. An online platform will be used for assignment questions and to stimulate deeper conversations. Part 2 relates to practice the lean startup approach. It is were ideas are generated, tested, taken to scale and renewed. Thereby we will connect companies and students to prototype solutions within 48 hours.
