DMBA PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Here's an general overview of the program content and what you can expect to discover and learn.

PROGRAM DETAILS

DMBA5001

AGILE METHODOLOGIES & INNOVATION

This course will explore different work and innovation methodologies, helping students learn where they come from, their applications, and most importantly, how to apply them actively throughout the program. Now more than ever, methodologies are important and set the tone for organizations, dictating how they work and establishing a clear ideology, for themselves, employees, and stakeholders. Students will learn about the origins of different methodologies within the Agile framework such as Scrum, Kanban, Design Thinking, and Business Model Canvas, and how they are applied in business. They will take a deep-dive into the inner-workings of these methodologies and learn how to become practitioners.

DIGITAL BUSINESS FRAMEWORK

In this course, you will learn how to read and operate companies in the digital era, achieving an understanding of top-level finance, operations, and business models. You will look at the differences between digital business models and companies and understand the secret for their success based on how they operate. We will dive into customer-centricity under an omnichannel, multi-device, global approach, understanding back- office operations (process automation) and front office-operations (focusing on user experience). We will learn how to design, deploy, and follow KPIs. Additionally, we will cover innovation and partnerships, and establish a firm finance and legal foundation for companies in the digital era. Furthermore, you will see a new perspective on society and technology, the effects they have upon one another, and their impact on what a company is: an organization permanently ready for any disruption that might come to its industry; because such disruption will come sooner or later. This course will provide a space for open and shared reflection on the evolution of both technology and society, the consequences of such evolution on the way consumers behave in a time when their daily routines are enhanced by the superpowers granted by those outstanding solutions that nowadays seem normal, giving birth to competitive landscapes in which whole industries face a new normal to which they can only adapt or otherwise fade. What are the new rules of the business playground? How do we learn, adapt to and satisfy technologically- enhanced customers? Is there a way to navigate the new competitive landscape with a reasonable perspective for the future? What can be expected of the deeply disruptive technologies that await right around the corner?

Whether you’re looking for a luxury rooftop apartment down Gran Vía or a more affordable studio in Malasaña, there are many options to suit a range of budgets.

That’s why we have entered partnerships with rental agencies to ensure we can meet the needs of everyone who is studying the Digital MBA in Madrid.

There are also many different cultural activities to partake in while staying in Madrid, such as; watching a match at the Bernabeu stadium, taking salsa dancing classes or trying the many different foods of Spain. Many will argue that the latter is the most important to the people of Madrid, as the only thing they love more than football is their food.
