What companies say about our study programme.

Digital transformation does not stop at German companies either. To remain competitive, many processes must be transformed. This presents many companies with challenges that need to be solved. One of the bigger problems are employees who are only sufficiently adaptable and/or have no vision of how a process can be transformed economically. This completely ignores new business areas that can be developed. Here, graduates of the study programme "Digital Business Management" certainly have good chances professionally to support companies in these points.

Sebastian Apprecht

Founder/ Managing partner -

The digital transformation is changing industry logic in many areas and posing major challenges for companies. In particular, the ability to adapt permanently is becoming increasingly important. As a result, the management of strategy-, technology- and data-driven change processes is increasingly becoming a key competence for future managers. The innovative Digital Business Management program addresses the central fields of digital change and opens up a wide range of career opportunities for graduates in companies of all sizes and industries.
