The 5th industrial revolution is in full swing, and enterprising business professionals are grasping advanced technologies like AI powered robots, in order to reach cemented sustainable development targets. The value of digitalising is indisputable, leading to increased productivity and agility, improved customer experience, and maintaining competitive advantage.
Copenhagen Business School has incorporated digitalisation in its teaching and research agenda. The Department of Digitalisation consists of 60 full time academics and holds some of the brightest academics in the cross fields between IT and business. Their research has been published in the eight most trendsetting academic journals at the intersection of IT and business. The focus lies on how digital technologies are developing business and society via teaching, research activities, externally funded research projects and ongoing consultations with external partners. According to the “Top Rankings of Schools in the ‘basket of eight’ (Bo8) journals”, covering the past three years, CBS is ranked number one in Europe and number four in the world.
“When we are teaching or consulting on artificial intelligence, for example, we can source an expert from the department that is not only an academic expert but has the practical know-how expertise specifically in that area.”
Through a two-month digitalisation module, participants of the Copenhagen MBA programme, business professionals are enhancing their digital leadership and digital capabilities.
