About the course

  • Programme/course information

    Digitalization has fundamentally changed the conditions for contemporary organizations and organizing. Digital enterprises are characterized by their digital logic, which impacts all levels of organizational life including strategies, business models and competencies. Against this backdrop, the course addresses a number of core operational challenges for organizations building on a digital logic. These include, but are not limited to, the areas of governance, digital and dynamic capabilities, digital and business platforms, digital transformation, risk and value creation. The focus on how these can be managed ties together questions of strategy, innovation and organizing in concrete ways.

New at Umeå University

  • Information due to COVID-19

    We are delighted that you have chosen to apply to Umeå University, and look forward to seeing you! It has been an unusual autumn, and although much is starting to return back to normal, not everything will be like it used to be this semester. It is still just as important that we keep distance from each other, and moreover, education that is held on campus can be affected in different ways. For example, some parts of the teaching can take place online so that we do not all gather on campus at the same time.

    The best way to stay updated on what is going on and how your studies may be affected is on the Student web. You will also find advice, tips and tools for studying and collaborating remotely. The pages are constantly updated as soon as new rules or recommendations are added.
