Lead through the digital change!

Digitalization is a huge opportunity for companies and organizations. New, digital technologies are seen as key drivers for operational change initiatives and are aimed at enabling new ways of creating value and positions in global markets. At the same time, technology-driven change processes present complex technical and cultural challenges. They disrupt existing experiences and routines. This can trigger uncertainty and a lack of understanding, especially among employees.

Famous examples such as Kodak or Polaroid show how difficult it can be for companies and organizations to leave familiar paths. In these change processes leaders play the key role. It is their responsibility to unfold the potential of digitalization in a meaningful way and to generate acceptance  for change.

This is where the Executive MBA program Digital Transformation & Change Management comes in. You will learn to optimally use digital opportunities and to give employees orientation and confidence in difficult times. You will acquire one of the most important skills of the future - digital leadership!
