Digital Business Master Class (47E00100) is an interactive and fast-paced graduate-level course (6 ECTS) focusing on digital technologies as tools for building businesses. During the Master Class, students learn how companies transform their processes and systems by implementing digital technologies. Concepts covered include platforms and ecosystems, business design thinking, data-driven marketing, digital value creation, data-intensive business and agile development methods.

Challenge-based learning is an integral part of the Master Class. Students work on company projects in international and multidisciplinary teams. The projects are done in collaboration with partner companies, ensuring that the themes are relevant to the current business environment.

In addition to intensive lecture weeks, the course includes independent pre- and post-work periods. Learning experiences range from insightful discussions in class to multidisciplinary teamwork, independent research and corporate collaboration.

Business projects in international teams

Working on a real-life business project with a multinational team offers an unbeatable learning experience. Students are invited to apply their knowledge to challenges provided by Finnish companies and organisations. Working together with a company partner provides meaningful connections with the industry and takes new topics from the classroom to the boardroom.

In addition to working on their digital business skills, participants get valuable experience of multidisciplinary teamwork and build their international communication skills. Whether taking the course online or on-campus, students meet people from different academic and cultural backgrounds, preparing them for international careers. The project work is facilitated by DBMC staff, with tips ranging from presentation skills to successful online teamwork.
