Talent semester

2nd semester students on the MSc in Economics and Business Administration have the chance to apply for the 3rd semester talent programme (30 + 10 ECTS) in Digital Transformation at Aarhus BSS.

What is digital transformation?

These years, many companies are increasing their investments in digital marketing, e-commerce, mobility and automation. However, often there is no coherence between the digital investments and considerations as to how the company will look in 5-10 years; how it will make its money, communicate with customers and partners, initiate new projects and organise its internal work processes.

The talent programme at Aarhus BSS takes a holistic look at digital transformation and on how the transformations affect the company’s organisation, business model and infrastructure. What are we selling, to whom and how do we bring our products and services to market? And is the company geared for this internally?
