The world of work is changing. Artificial intelligence and automation will make this shift as significant as the mechanization in prior generations of agriculture and manufacturing. While some jobs will be lost, and many others created, almost all will change.

THE BIG PICTURE

Digital transformation has become a strategic issue for companies because it shakes up competitive environments, value chains, business models, and professions within organizations.
Tech is now an integral part of business; companies are grappling with an urgent need for new skills. Therefore, IUM offers a new track and specialization in “Digital Business Development” within its bachelor’s program to prepare students to drive the much-needed change to evolve and adapt to the new digital economy.

OBJECTIVES

This track aims to create technological knowledge within our student population to complement their managerial skills. Through a deep dive into the digital world and technical training, students will be able to communicate with specialists in a very technical way in their future career as part of the management of digital projects in innovative sectors; such as the accompaniment of the digital transformation of companies and the management of digital projects in emerging areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Metaverse, Cryptocurrency, NFT, Quantum Computing, to name only a few of the technologies grabbing headlines at the start of 2022.

CURRICULUM

This track will concern the first two years of the bachelor’s program, and the specialization will affect the 3rd year. It will fit perfectly into the philosophy of the existing BBA program, enriching its contents without changing its structure.

Thanks to a progressive introduction of more technological content, students will successively learn algorithms, programming, data management, and analysis issues related to Big Data. They will be able to apply this during a period of professional immersion.

Finally, in the third year, these students will be able to continue in the same direction by choosing a Digital Business Development specialization which will complete the existing Bachelor specializations (Global Business, Communication and Event Management, Luxury Marketing, Sales and Services, Sports Business Management, International Finance, Monaco Banking, and Financial Services). This new third-year specialization will lead students to more strategic concepts related to the digital world, including ethics, cybersecurity, and societal impact.

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE ECE

This track is in partnership with the ECE (École d’Ingénieurs & High-Tech) in Paris. Students will spend the 2nd semester of their 2nd year there to participate in highly technical courses and join a special digital Bootcamp.
