EIT Digital launches four new digital transformation Masterclasses for managers

EIT Digital Professional School is offering four new masterclasses targeting business professionals in all sectors of the economy.

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 adage under which EIT Digital is launching four new masterclasses 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 digital-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.
