Digital Opportunities in Europe

This module is designed as a course for advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in business information systems and international management. It provides a unique combination of business and information technology and focuses on opportunities emerging from an increasingly digitalized and globalized economy in Europe.

Lectures will cover different aspects of digitalization, business information systems and information management.

Following a highly interactive approach, lectures provide theoretical and practical insights into pivotal topics of the digital economy, including digital business models, business analytics, information management, and emerging technologies, e.g. blockchain.

The course will be held in live per ZOOM, but the sessions will be uploaded on our digital learning platform, so that the students can easily download each slot afterwards and watch it later, e.g. due to time shifts.

After completing the module successfully, students will have a broad understanding of how to identify and capture benefits from digital opportunities in Europe.

An online guided tour of the city of Würzburg will give you an idea where we are and where you are warmly welcome to come and study after the pandemic comes to an end. We will also offer you a virtual company visit in order to give you an insight into German business culture.

There are no prerequistes except for a basic knowledge in the fields of business management and economics. The language of instruction is English, thus language proficiency on an advanced Intermediate level (B2) is a prerequisite for participation. You can assess your language skills here (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) in order to get orientation as to your language skills.


Four weeks prior to the Summer Module Course students will receive a course reader in electronic form.
