Any manager in any company or organisation should be aware of the novel digital innovations that can challenge the way business has been done so far. This is the adagio under which the EIT Digital Professional School launches four new courses in collaboration with renowned partners.

The EIT Digital Professional School has a reputation for enhancing the digital skills of business professionals in all sectors of the economy.  According to McKinsey (2018) companies with digitally savvy leaders are more likely to achieve digital transformation success with and within their companies.

“The global digital economy is becoming a fact. Digitalisation is changing the way business is done.  Therefore, in line with EIT Digital’s mission to build a strong digital Europe, we want to educate the current and aspiring leaders and entrepreneurs to recognise business opportunities in emerging technologies to keep ahead. After all, in today’s rapidly changing world, everybody is a lifelong student”, says Asja Kamenica, Head of the EIT Digital Professional School.

Applied Data Science Bootcamp, produced by EIT Digital’s partner Bright Cape from The Netherlands, is the first course of the new classes that had been developed this year. In this all-around and intensive online training in November, managers directly get hands-on with their data brought from their business.

Besides the existing course Blockchain for the decision-maker, the Budapest University of Technology and Economics comes with the short executive course Blockchain for Digital Manufacturing and Logistics. This class, scheduled for December,  focuses on the application opportunities of blockchain-driven solutions in Digital Manufacturing and logistics and will also be given entirely online in November.

The course Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 in Food Processing, given in December, provides deeper insights into the digitalisation of the Food Industry. Before the two-day online training class, the producers – Campden BRI HungaryCNR, and ELTE University’s Faculty of Informatics – offer an online course to prepare for the basics.

The last of the four new courses is called Sustainable Digital Innovation. As the name already suggests, this 4-day class will help you to integrate sustainability with digital solutions into your business planning and product development. The first two days of the course will be taught at KTH Executive School in Stockholm, the last two days at Fraunhofer IPK in Berlin. The dates for this course will be announced shortly.

With these new classes, the EIT Digital Professional School currently has eleven courses on offer. The other courses are:

The EIT Digital Professional School supports the digital transformation of companies and organisations by creating a learning ecosystem. Our initiative is powered by continuing education courses, specially designed to provide critical digital knowledge, insights, and skills to European professionals and executives, leveraging the EIT Digital Focus Areas and our partners’ research activities.
