Master in Digital Transformation

For some years now, we have been globally immersed in the so-called digital age, a major and disruptive change in every aspect of our life. Business environment is no exception. The creation of companies that operate exclusively on the Internet has revolutionized the conventional way of conceiving the company, the strategy and the models of doing business. Thus, new cases of business success such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix or Spotify, among other OTTs, are digital natives. The rules of the game have changed and now any company or organization must know how new technologies affect the company, how to take advantage of them and how to use them to find new opportunities or new competitive advantages.

The ASPIRE Master in Digital Transformation is a demanding program that provides the participant with the knowledge and skills necessary to exploit the digital environments in a business environment, always with a global vision of the business. The program is designed to show the new Internet professionals the key drivers required to be successful both in launching a new business and in transforming those businesses that still operate outside the digital world and need to make the leap. Professionals who know and master the new digital environment, know how to exploit social networks, be prepared to launch Mobile Marketing strategies and help your company to develop its e-commerce plan. In short, professionals and executives who know how to take advantage of New technologies to gain a solid competitive advantage over time.
