Digital Business

Digital business is changing the way organizations use and think about technology, moving technology from a supporting player to a leading player in innovation, revenue and market growth. On the road to a digital future, companies don’t just need the courage and determination to replace processes, but also qualified staff to bring in new ideas and advance new fields of business.

The future of business will be digital. That much is certain. The need is to educate future business leaders who understand the opportunities and challenges of Industry 4.0 and Digital Business, make informed decisions, and shape the digital transformation in their organizations. In order to qualify future managers to successfully handle these challenges, the School of Business Studies offers a curriculum with the Digital Business concentration.

The rigorous curriculum takes an interdisciplinary approach to business fundamentals, so that the students can move seamlessly from “what is” to “what will be.” It is steeped in different ways of thinking and in multiple perspectives and reinforces growing knowledge with experiential learning opportunities.
