 Course Summary

Digitization is the word on everyone’s lips. Businesses, governments, and other public organizations are busy trying to define their own digital roadmap. But how is this connected with sustainability?
Events like the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris or the World Economic Forum in Davos made it clear that if businesses want to survive, they have to learn how to become sustainable. And digitization plays a key role in enabling this.
“Sustainability through Digital Transformation” allows you to explore the opportunities digitization offers to further drive sustainability. The course shows how the power of technology can help companies become more successful and at the same time contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Together, we’ll explore opportunities to master the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. We’ll look at examples of how to leverage digital innovation to transform industry sectors, including health, mobility, financial services, and education for the better.
