Digital technologies are bringing about significant gaps in the workplace and organizations are desperate to find talented professionals to fulfil the demand. This evolution of business means the traditional MBA is also having to become more versatile in not just what it teaches, but how it’s taught too.

As a result, universities and business schools alike are having to reshape and rethink their MBA programs. ISDI is one such business school that’s becoming an innovator in technology teaching with its revolutionary Digital MBA program.

We spoke to them to find out just how the Digital MBA can help prepare you for the exciting future of technology and innovation within digital business.

Specialized modules dedicated to novel technologies

From the presence of Google’s Alexa in our homes, to contactless payments in the supermarket, novel automation and digital technologies now play a pivotal role in our everyday lives.

But when it comes to these new technologies within the world of business, in order to cope with them, you have to get to know them. Digital vision, digital business execution, digital leadership and business context are just some disciplines which students will delve right into as part of the Digital MBA curriculum at ISDI. Having a genuine understanding of these areas will ensure you’re able to deal with the emergence of new business technologies.

Innovative exposure to digital skills and professional tools

In order to prepare you for the modern workplace, programs such as the Digital MBA offer education in tools and concepts including artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, internet of things (IoT) and robotics. This exposure ensures you’ll be able to leverage new technology to devise revolutionary business models and strategies.

Networking with some of the world’s leading digital industries

Sometimes talking to people in the know can really help improve your understanding of the technology sector and the things you need to know to conquer the competitive job market. Google, LinkedIn and Accenture are just a handful of industry leaders who visit ISDI to speak with Digital MBA students about the world of digital business.

Action-based learning opportunities

Speaking of leading digital companies, the Digital MBA offers the opportunity for an internship with the likes of Meliá and Accenture, allowing you to gain a genuine insight into the world of digital business and the chance to explore the implementation of novel digital technological trends – something which you may not otherwise have the chance to experience before pursuing your post-MBA career.

A school’s location can also have a big impact on the access it offers to industry innovators. ISDI’s location in the heart of Spain’s capital, Madrid, means you’ll be in close proximity to some of the country’s most innovative technology and business hubs, perfectly situated for internships and post-graduation job opportunities. Something which students are given support and have assistance with even after graduating from ISDI, thanks to its dedicated talent services and Job Board.  

Working on real-life projects

In order to properly understand the theories and practices you learn in the Digital MBA classroom, you’ll want to have the opportunity to apply them in the real world. Fortunately, the Digital MBA’s ‘Backbone Project’ allows students to see and understand the digitization of a traditional business which is the perfect opportunity to harness digital business skills and technical acumen.
