The economic success and growth of companies require, among other things, forward-looking and future-oriented management. Managers must always keep an eye on current and emerging trends and developments and integrate them into corporate strategies and concepts. It is no longer a secret that companies of all industries have to deal with the topic of digital change. However, this requires experts who are able to deal with the demands and consequences of progressive digitalization. By choosing the specialization Digital Management you qualify for the strategic and conceptual handling of the challenges of these new developments.
The development of new business models, products and services also entails the adaptation and reorganization of entrepreneurial processes and procedures to maintain and increase competitiveness. The specialization Digital Management conveys a comprehensive understanding of digital change in companies and enables companies to develop and implement digital concepts and strategies, to recognize future challenges and opportunities and to translate them into visions and innovations. The students get to know the development of digital business models, deal with methods and techniques of innovation management and are prepared for the design of transformation processes.
The effects of growing technology affect all business areas and processes.

The specialization Digital Management prepares for all areas affected by digital change, such as data science, digital working environments, agile project management, coding and design or the Smart Factory.
Efficiency and sustainability of new strategies and innovative concepts can only be assessed in practical tests.
