Programme Overview

This Master’s degree programme is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to guide their organisations through the complexities of digital transformation.

Digitalisation is fast becoming the driving force in business. It is giving every organisation, both private and public, the chance to be more agile, more transparent, more innovative and more customer-centric.
