Digital Transformation: A Free Online Course from the University of Virginia & Boston Consulting Group

Dig­i­tal Trans­for­ma­tion is a hot top­ic. But what exact­ly is dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion, and what does it mean for com­pa­nies? This course devel­oped at the Dar­d­en School of Busi­ness at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Vir­ginia, and led by Dar­d­en fac­ul­ty and Boston Con­sult­ing Group experts, will exam­ine the pace of dig­i­tal change and the imper­a­tive it cre­ates for busi­ness­es. Stu­dents will then exam­ine “what it takes to win in the dig­i­tal age and how to iden­ti­fy key areas to dig­i­tize, includ­ing strat­e­gy, core process­es, and tech­nol­o­gy.”

By the end of this course, stu­dents will be able to:

  • describe the under­ly­ing eco­nom­ics of inno­va­tion, tech­nol­o­gy, and mar­ket dis­rup­tions.
  • weigh the pros and cons of cur­rent dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies dri­ving advance­ment.
  • uti­lize BCG’s dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion frame­work as a “how-to” for dig­i­tiz­ing your orga­ni­za­tion.

You can take Dig­i­tal Trans­for­ma­tion for free by select­ing the audit option upon enrolling. If you want to take the course for a cer­tifi­cate, you will need to pay a fee.
