Business Assignment project

About the programme

Digital Transformation focuses on aligning Business and IT. You will do a project for a company or organization and so the programme will be executed mainly at the company’s site. The project is IT related, a few examples are focusing on collecting and analyzing data about customers, trends and processes in a business,  information security, IT architecture or application management. In general the project will be IT related, which means that both a certain amount of IT knowledge and knowledge about business is also required to participate in this programme. 

Among other things, you obtain advanced knowledge about project management, creating business solutions and doing research, while working in a project for a customer.

Example: What to do with data and applications?

The amount of internal data about a company is increasing progressively and so does the need for those data to be converted into information. Also the applications need to interact a lot more, this requires focus on the application landscape, a chart and an advice how to improve the interface between applications and the options for decision making based on the gathered data.

Career-focused learning
