Digital Opportunities in Europe - ONLINE

Student Profile

This module is designed as an ONLINE 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.

Course Description

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.
Cultural activities such as wine tasting and a guided visit tour of the Würzburg Residenz complement the learning experience to provide students with a deep insight into business, culture and everyday life in our region.
After completing the module successfully, students will have a broad understanding of how to identify and capture benefits from digital opportunities in Europe.

Prerequisites and Language Skills

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.
