Students become optimally prepared for their deployment and successful work in the field of digital transformation in business, science or their own startup by additional courses under the heading “Professional Skills” and “Design Thinking” because beside of the professional abilities we see these as core competencies that make a decisive difference in studies and jobs and are indispensable for shaping the digital society.
Courses in the area of professional skills are designed to develop and promote students’ ability to innovate, problem-solving skills, and entrepreneurial thinking and action. Furthermore, the ability to work in a team, social competence, curiosity and flexibility should be promoted and ethical awareness and basic legal understanding should be developed, i.e. essential skills for understanding and shaping the use of information technology in business and society.
Design thinking plays a special role here as a proven approach and mindset that can be used to drive transformation processes in society and business. Originally developed as an innovation method for products and services at the Stanford University, design thinking education promotes team intelligence and the ability to collaborate as the basis for new learning and working models. Students will be enabled to take on, master and shape the immense challenges of the digital transformation of our society and our economy with an innovation-open mindset.
