Program description

MSc Leadership for Digital Transformation

Digitalisation: lead the business into the next stage.

The GISMA MSc Leadership for Digital Transformation provides you with all of the essential tools and practical skills to pursue a career in leading transformation projects and change agendas for the digital economy. 

Digitalisation is changing business models, technologies, and the value proposition of organisations. This means that there is a need for redefining and restructuring efficiency and customer value propositions.

This programme focuses on how to lead this process and guide your organisation into the future from an international perspective. It opens up careers in multiple sectors, including business, government and consulting, as no part of society is immune to these challenging circumstances. In addition, the 2-year programme includes big data, cyber security, or cloud computing know-how, directly provided by renowned digital companies such as Amazon or Alibaba.

You will learn to approach digital transformation from a multi-perspective, integrating technological, social and economic aspects. By combining digital transformation and leadership, you will be able to shape and lead change processes. The program imparts fundamental knowledge of the subject area, including business administration, economics, technology, innovation management, entrepreneurship, data control organization design, and cognitive psychology & leadership.

Leading the digitalisation from a broader perspective (business, technology, and society) is the focus of this programme. It will be supported by insights of the bigger picture of the organisation and management, as well as communication skills on “how to change”.

Admission requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree in relevant scientific discipline
  • English proficiency: B2 (IELTS 6.0) or equivalent
  • For non-standard entry routes please seek clarification on requirements with our admissions team.

The programme is for aspiring managers and consultants who want to prepare themselves to take on senior leadership roles in the digitisation process related to all business functions and drive change in their organisations.

This postgraduate degree is perfect for graduates in business management or a similar undergraduate business programme as well as graduates of closely related disciplines such as economics, psychology, law, or other social sciences.  This programme may also complement a prior undergraduate degree in engineering, computer science, computer engineering or closely related sciences.

Business and/or management experience after the first academic degree is not necessary but highly desirable.
