Course content

Digital technologies have become an integral part of contemporary organizations. Now, a growing number of organizations are using different emerging technologies, not only to support their operations, but also to drive their business strategy. The aim of this course is to develop a hands-on understanding of some of these key emerging digital technologies such as process mining, machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet-of-Things (IoT), as well as how they can be leveraged and deployed in the organizational setting. The course builds on the fact that many business-relevant problems can now be resolved through the use of digital technologies. Nevertheless, knowing how to solve these first requires an understanding of the applications and potential of such technologies and how they can be leveraged in organizational operations.

Learning outcome


The candidate will develop deep knowledge of key emerging technologies, their data and infrastructure requirements, as well as their uses and potential business applications.



The candidates will develop solid skills in configuring the relevant digital technologies and corresponding tools. The candidates will develop the skills necessary to identify what types of digital technology can be used to support corresponding problems. In addition, candidates will foster their skills in drafting roll-out plans and developing key performance indicators (KPIs) to assess the value of the applied digital technologies.



After the course, the candidates will have developed the competence to identify the areas where digital technologies can be applied to address key business and strategical challenges.

Learning methods and activities

The course consists of lectures and project work. As part of the project work, the candidates need to work on a series of tasks and on an individual report. In the tasks, they will go through a number of realistic problem-oriented activities where they will be required to utilize the skills they will be taught following a hands-on approach with some key emerging technologies. They will also be required to develop adoption and roll-out plans for the different technologies and develop relevant indicators to benchmark their success. The individual report discusses the use of the introduced digital technologies in light of the relevant literature and through a selected case of an organization. Both parts need a pass for a student to obtain an overall pass for the course. This course is lectured in English.

Compulsory assignments
