Digitalization is everywhere in many industries there is a need for the digitalization of companies, business models and working environments. The job opportunities targeted by this study program are to be found in the field of the digital transformation of companies and organizations.

 

Graduates deal with digitalization projects in companies and design new business models or introduce new processes. In the context of these projects, they are the link between departments within the company and have a high level of interpersonal skills to support the change processes within the company. In the Master's program, you will acquire the following additional competencies:

 

For successful digitization projects, it is important to have expertise in research methods and data analysis in order to develop a sound understanding of the status quo and future options and thus make the right decisions. Furthermore, it is also important to be able to evaluate how processes and services can be optimized through the use of AI.

 

In addition, digitization projects require interdisciplinary skills and collaboration across departments. IT concepts must be communicated for a digitalization project - which is why companies are looking for experts who can regoginze and deal with these different perspectives.
