Leading Digital Transformation | Certificate Program

Leading Digital Transformation requires both an understanding of technologies driving the  change,  as  well  as  the  ability  to  lead  the  organisational  transformation.  A  robust  business  model  that  leverages  advanced  technologies  is  therefore  the  key  to  innovation 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 at providing 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 are implementing digital transformation are keys elements of the curriculum. Hands-on workshops are also a staple of the program, such as business modeling workshops with industry leaders.
