Leading Digital Transformation

Executive Education for Digital Transformers

In a world that is increasingly data-driven, innovation has accelerated and competition has toughened. Therefore, the needs for senior managers and executives to innovate, update and be one step ahead of the rest are enormous. And when it comes to novel technologies such as Internet of Things, data analytics, and blockchain, leading digital transformation requires not only an understanding of technologies driving the change, but also the ability to lead the organizational transformation. A robust business model that leverages the technology is thus the key to digital transformation and sustained value creation.

Through a six-month period and three weeks of in-class modules, the executive certificate program Leading Digital Transformation (LDT) has been tailored to the needs of the business leaders and decision makers in the digital age. It aims to provide them with a framework to analyze and develop an innovative blueprint for their companies to embrace the wave of digital transformation. Case studies, industry visits and interviews with business leaders who implementing digital transformation are keys elements of the curriculum. Hands-on workshops are also a staple of the program, such as a business modeling workshop at the headquarters of BMW with a team of their experts.
