The economy of Europe is in a turning point: Digitisation, the challenges of climate change and the associated need to reduce CO2 emissions, along with global dependencies in politically turbulent times, are forcing the restructuring of companies and our working world in many areas.
Currently, many executives are faced with the need to not only realign their organisations to achieve growth and stability, but also to consider opportunities for a more profound transformation of their business model. Today is about being able to remain stable and steadfast in the long term even in unstable markets, or to find ways to regain one's position in a newly defined market. This requires executives who are capable of taking a holistic view of aspects of “technology” and “sustainability”, green and digital transformation in the sense of a twin transition.
The interdisciplinary University Certificate Programme Executive MBA Green and Digital Transition, EMBA Twin for short, combines the two future topics “Digital Transformation” and “Green Transition” and enables a scientifically sound and at the same time action-oriented qualification of executives on a strategic and operational level.
The part-time university certificate programme as a whole is based on a modular structure with a blended learning concept (combination of distance learning and in-person units).
Each module consists of 3 stages:
The EMBA university certificate programme consists of the following modules:
Modules Digital Transformation
Modules Green Transition / Zero Carbon Management
The university certificate programme is intended for business leaders from a range of different industries who have several years of experience in leadership and strategic management and who wish to develop their (leadership) expertise further in connection with the double disruption (the green and the digital transition) in order to make companies fit for the future.
The university certificate programme operates at the intersection of digitalisation/digital transformation and green transition, with the emphasis on decarbonising companies. It qualifies students as executives who are not only aware of the environmental impacts of their business activity but who are also familiar with the possibilities of new technologies as enablers in achieving climate-neutral companies. In addition, they will be capable of consciously and proactively implementing digital and sustainable transformation, in a simultaneous and integrated manner. In view of these focal topics, the main target group is executives wishing to tackle the challenges of a rapidly changing digital world in the context of climate change and necessary decarbonisation in a holistic manner.
The requirement for admission to the University Certificate Programme Executive MBA Green and Digital Transition is proof of the following qualifications:
Highly qualified applicants who do not meet these requirements and have a prior academic degree (e.g., secondary school graduates or graduates from a higher technical college) may be admitted by way of exception if they can show proof of suitable professional experience, i.e., at least ten years of relevant professional experience, with at least five years managerial experience in an executive position.
