Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Transformation

The postgraduate diploma in Digital Transformation is designed to deliver the knowledge, understanding and skill sets to operate and succeed within the global digital economy . Business leaders and experts talk of a paradigm shift or a ‘4th Industrial Revolution’ led by Digital Transformation. The convergence of Cloud computing, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and The Internet of Things will see organisations of all shapes and sizes either survive and thrive or face extinction. New operational and strategic norms, types of organisations, the nature of work and employment are fundamentally changing across vast parts of the global economy. In order to adapt and change organisations need leaders, managers and advisors equipped with an understanding of digital transformation technologies, business and data analytics and fundamental business knowledge and skills. With an internationally recognised certification, you will be able to progress with advanced entry to an MBA or masters degree in management.
