1. Management skills

Digital competences are essential to work in a world in which digitalisation is increasingly present and important. In this context, developing "digital talent" will be one of the differentiating elements in a world that is increasingly globalised and in constant and accelerated change. In this module, students will learn about the new ways of leading in a context of change and will acquire the necessary skills to grow in the business.

Digital businesses need innovative project methodologies by nature, since these are projects that require fast development times that are achieved with incremental iterations in order to meet the established time to market.

This course presents innovative alternatives for managing digital projects and provides students with the necessary knowledge to select the most appropriate project management approach, considering the different circumstances of the project and its stakeholders, as well as its complexity.

2. Digital transformation of businesses

We live in a society of excess, where supply far exceeds demand. Standing out from the competition through high added value proposals will be essential for our perpetuation over time in a sustainable manner. Laying solid foundations from the moment we begin to conceive our business model will provide us with the keys to success; we will be able to embark on this path towards differentiation with guarantees. In this module, students will learn about the current environment and the challenges it presents, how companies should approach and adapt their business model strategy according to their challenges and the role played by the end consumer, new technologies and the virtual environment in relation to the generation of supply.

Digital Marketing has revolutionised the way we do business, and no corporation, company, business, entrepreneur or professional (whether or not in the marketing area) can ignore its vital importance in achieving success. The digital world has blurred the walls between the areas of Marketing (on and off line), PR, IR and Customer Service, mainly because in the Digital Ecosystem the customer demands to be kept informed, to be listened to and to be attended to for any query or complaint, through any channel. Digital Marketing is closer to a dialogic communication strategy than to advertising, and if there is anyone authorised to talk about the evolution of marketing mix strategies, it is Philip Kotler, who is considered the "father of marketing". In order to get to know and situate the theoretical framework of this subject, we’re going to start with Philip Kloter's new book "Marketing 4.0".

In the era of information and digital transformation, strategically managing Business Intelligence (BI), Big Data and Business Analytics (BA) Information Systems is essential for organisations, as they can improve the efficiency of operations by providing better visibility, control and greater agility and transparency through the creation, use and exploitation of these technologies. In this module, students will review the importance of collecting, transforming, analysing and measuring this historical and predictive information through an appropriate BI strategy and always with a clear prior definition of the business requirements; you will see the evolution of BI, which processes and business areas it affects, how this information is obtained and aggregated from different sources, channels and data origins, and how these support digital transformation.

Customer management is undoubtedly the most important function in business. It means investigating where current and potential customers are, getting to know those who already work with us, actively listening to what they want, prioritising their habits and establishing actions to guarantee their permanence. During this course, students will immerse in the definition and basic concepts of a customer management system and learn to clarify some of the confusion that still exists between direct marketing, relationship marketing and customer loyalty. They will also learn about the introduction of the commercial system in companies and its integration in distribution channels, as well as familiarize with the necessary tools and procedures for the deployment of a relationship system (CRM) in the company.

The supply chain is the competitive and differentiating factor by which companies can either stand out in the market or remain stuck in an all-out battle in the red oceans. Technologies have always influenced the development and operations of the supply chain, and innovations in transportation modes have been a substantial resource for overtaking competition in markets, especially in internationalising companies. However, in recent years, digitalisation has brought about a substantially different change; it has offered solutions that radically change concepts and paradigms in all sectors. Throughout this subject, you will see the process of digitisation of the supply chain, the technologies in the digitisation of the supply chain and the possibilities of innovation in processes within the framework of the digitisation of the supply chain.

This module focuses on how blockchain works and how it can be applied to securely and immutably record transactions and information, as well as its conceptual fit with other disruptive technologies such as quantum computing, IoT (Internet of Things), 5G, Big Data and AI. This will allow us to discuss the suitability or otherwise of blockchain in certain projects and will enable us to consider different real-world use cases in various sectors.

Since 2014, Internet access from mobile devices has surpassed access from traditional desktop and laptop computers. This data indicates that the playing field is changing radically and that in the near future, companies' strategies must be focused on mobile devices. Access from mobile devices is based on the use of applications, which is why we must be aware of everything that is happening in this sector. In this module, students will face the change of business model that is taking place in mobile applications and learn how it’s focusing more and more on the benefits of advertising. You will learn about the strategies of big companies in the sector, such as Google and Facebook and how they carry out innovative marketing and brand awareness campaigns through these new options.

Master's Final Project and Additional Activities

This programme is designed to complement the content of the thematic blocks with the necessary training to achieve their internalisation. The training is conceived from a threefold perspective: technical assistance, personal support and individual and group challenges that are necessary to achieve the objectives set.

Pre-Masters Bootcamps

The student will have the opportunity to take 3 Pre-Master Bootcamps that will be opened progressively and can be taken at any time. Once the course has been completed and passed, a certificate of completion will be awarded.

- Bootcamp 1. Personal Branding
- Bootcamp 2. Data Storytelling
- Bootcamp 3. Creative thinking and innovation

Introductory workshop | Campus Training

Before the start of the academic year, students will have the opportunity to attend an introductory workshop on the Campus, where they will be provided with the necessary tools and knowledge for the correct use of the platform during the academic year.

Professional Development Programme (PDP)

Two weeks before the start of the academic year, students will be able to participate in a professional development programme, where they will work hand in hand with a teacher to develop skills such as time management, productivity, stress management and emotional intelligence. Once the student has successfully completed the workshop, he or she will receive a certificate of completion.

The main objective of the Master's Thesis is for you to work on a group project that allows you to put into practice all the knowledge acquired throughout the Master's degree. Beyond an academic activity, this is an opportunity to connect your education to the economic and business reality.

Company visits

During the development of the programme, the student will have the opportunity to attend synchronous videoconferences with professional experts that will share their experience and provide advice on some of the best practices in the sector.

Webinars

Most of the training is done asynchronously, that is, the exchange of knowledge is done through a platform that allows sharing written texts without the need for people to be connected at the same time.

Additionally, in each of the modules, synchronous sessions or 'webinars' are organised, where all participants are connected at the same time through an application, which allows the exchange of knowledge in 'real time'.

Students taking the Master in Digital Transformation will have the opportunity to prepare for the following certifications:

- ICN Business IT Certification

- Scrum Certification (Product Owner & Scrum Master)

*The cost of the certifications, as well as the preparatory course, is not included in the price of the programme.
