Visit the official programme website for more information


Digital transformation is about harnessing technological potential for your organisation. Technologies such as 3D printing, blockchain, AI and quantum computing are set to reshape the business landscape, but there’s always something new on the horizon. With the constant pressure on organisations to adopt novel digital technologies as they emerge, how do you predict what’s around the corner?

With the  Digital Transformation at University of Hull Online, you will understand that while a prediction is impossible, there are sensible things you can do to manage and harness technological potential. Learning to adapt to new technological shifts and interpret their business value requires a new mindset and new capabilities.

Rather than using technology to automate old ways of doing business, you will gain the confidence to evaluate technological potential and choose the right technology to transform how your organisation operates. You will be able to understand the deeper issues around each shift, analyse new technologies strategically and assess their organisational benefits and transformational potential.

Whatever industry you work in, you will get the know-how to help your organisation minimise its exposure to costly mistakes and safeguard its resilience. Whether it’s a global pandemic or a cyber-attack, you will develop the data analysis skills you need to address the digital challenges your organisation has to be ready for.

You will learn how to interpret and visualise data to support your organisation’s decision-making process. You will also get a critical understanding of the role of ethics in digital transformation and learn how to avoid the ethics violations that have tripped up corporations of many different sizes in recent years.

On completion of this MSc, you will be able to confidently manage the adoption, implementation and utilisation of current and future digital technologies. This will make you a valuable individual for any organisation looking to use data-driven insights to help it maintain a competitive advantage.

Career prospects with an MSc in Digital Transformation

Many companies are looking to expand their operations to digital platforms and make more meaningful use of digital technology. To do this, they need employees who understand the implications of digital transformation for their business.

You will be able to think reflectively about technology, the ethics of technological change, and how to develop a digital strategy that protects your organisation from cyber-security threats.
