Business Models Fundamentals and Digital Transformation


This course is focused on Business Model Fundamentals and Digital Transformation. The purpose of the course is to demonstrate the importance of understanding complex relations between strategy, operations, business processes, and business models. The course is specifically focused on enterprise-wide culture as today there are a lot of educational materials and tools for start-ups, while the enterprise world is “a bit” unfairly missed.

The course also covers innovation and digital transformation pieces to help students recognize opportunities for practice and lead or contribute to changes in real-life businesses.


Course structure:

The course is structured as a full-time 3-day assignment.


Day 1 is focused on strategy, operating model, business processes, business model theory, including core components of business models; practical insights on solutions/IT solutions scoping will also be covered.
