Graduate Diploma in Technology

Seize the Value of New Technologies

Technologies continue to transform organizations, businesses, and economies. A responsible leader needs an in-depth understanding of these to drive profits and growth in this changing context. This understanding can be acquired through a combination of real-life experience with selected technologies, an awareness of their underlying logics, as well as an overview of the various technologies impacting our world.

Graduate Diploma in Technology equips senior decision makers with the skills and competences to use and apply novel technologies for the creation of new value. Cut through the noise about digitalization and technology to focus on what really matters.

The program covers the following themes:

  • Programming (Python)
  • Data-driven decision making and analytics
  • Digital channels and digital consumer
  • Cyber security and ethics
  • Robotics, Blockchain, VR
  • Digital Architectures
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • Other emerging technologies

A responsible leader does not outsource understanding of digitalization. A common reaction by business professionals to the rapidly emerging knowledge requirements around digitalization and technology has been to “box-out” this area of expertise and leave these issues to the specialists. This is not a sustainable solution. It is irresponsible for a leader to not be knowledgeable of the technologies and therefore unable to lead specialists and/or hire external experts to work with technology in an optimal way.

True leadership is possible only when other skills and competences are combined with an understanding of transformative technologies.
