The Professional Certificate in Digital Transformation prepares participants to understand the new digital paradigm, which presents the technological revolution that we are experiencing, as well as the key technologies that are behind this revolution. Our practical approach to learning is aimed at making participants an active part of the change.

Given today’s dynamic economic and industrial needs, organizations are required to embrace change from within by promoting continuous education for professionals who want to improve or learn new skills.

Now more than ever, hard skills such as understanding and managing: artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of things (IoT), cloud computing, DevOps, blockchain, are essential as they’re combined with soft skills such as: leadership, innovation, and cultural awareness.


Our world today is in a process of constant evolution, which has tremendous effects on business. Now, cultural diversity abounds, and the key to making an impact depends on having a strong understanding of the latest disruptive technologies. Organizations and their employees must be trained to adapt and prepare for the challenges ahead and business leaders must possess a global vision and be able to inspire those around them. This transformation, born from technological change, has impacted organizations both on a process and cultural level.

Managers need to adopt an innovative mindset and improve their leadership skills, both for developing and retaining talent as well as for creating high-performance teams that can adapt to any situation. This Certificate is oriented to understand the new digital paradigm of today’s technological revolution, and it also provides an overview of the key technologies driving this change.
