Aim, content and outcomes

Essential upskilling for working professionals, leaders and managers from all industries and sectors where digital disruption is at play.

  • Learn from industry guest speakers
  • Collaborate with like-minded learners
  • Develop a digital transformation strategy for your chosen organisation

Digital Transformation refers to any transformation that leverages digital technologies to creatively solve human problems. Although it can apply to any system, process, product or service, the emphasis is on how to improve and transform the human experience through technology, rather than how to use the technology itself.

In this Digital Transformation micro-credential, you will develop

  • knowledge of the new and emerging technologies that are redefining the workplace
  • ability to leverage this knowledge to creatively solve human problems with digital technologies
  • the skills necessary to lead digital transformation within your organisation
  • knowledge of digital transformation from multiple disciplines and perspectives including people, cultural, ethical and organisational perspectives

Successfully complete this micro-credential and you can transfer these 6 credits towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Digital Transformation at Media Design School, subject to meeting the programme entry criteria.
