    For all digital rebels who see an opportunity in change.

    You know that the digital transformation poses new challenges for companies from all sectors of the economy? Have you realised that digital management and digital human resources are becoming increasingly important? Last but not least, you are wondering which digital strategies are necessary today to ensure sustainable corporate success tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, and how they can be developed?

    Then the Digital Transformation Management Master at XU University is the right choice for you. Our Master’s programme is for all digital rebels who see new opportunities in change. The master’s programme in Digital Transformation Management not only provides you with answers to questions about digital tools, enterprise management and digital solutions, but also gives you the knowledge and skills to make a digital transformation a success.


    In the last twelve months, we have learned a lot about the state of digitalisation in our country. Above all, that we have done far too little in the last twenty years. This also applies to training in all digital professional fields.

    Idols and role models have changed, today it’s Elon Musk instead of Gottlieb Daimler. It’s Steve Jobs instead of Werner von Siemens. Academic education has become obsolete to a large extent, so your academic competence needs a digital update. Just because we do almost everything with computers today doesn’t mean that we have already implemented the digital transformation that all our workplaces need. It takes people who understand and can lead this process.

    It pays to invest in your own future

    Digital transformation sounds big and abstract, but it is already having a very concrete impact on job profiles and business models – and not least on your opportunities to leave a footprint in the world.

    The current transformation is characterised by such force and speed that it is hardly possible to make serious statements about how we will live and work in ten or twenty years. But you can prepare yourself for this challenge: With the Master’s programme in Digital Transformation Management at the XU Exponential University of Applied Sciences, you will acquire robust knowledge, practical skills and a compass that will enable you to safely navigate in confusing times.

    The programme is designed as a continuing education programme; the courses take place on Fridays and Saturdays. So you can easily combine it with your job. What’s particularly exciting is that you can immediately apply the knowledge and skills you learn in practical courses to your current professional environment. At the same time, you can also discuss your own professional challenges with lecturers and fellow students. So it pays off twice.

    At XU Exponential University, you can expect a community in which teachers, students and staff share their strengths and experience, support each other and help each other succeed. This is the environment in which you can take the next step – for yourself, for your loved ones and, last but not least, so that together we can put a positive spin on digital transformation.

    How we make you fit for the digital future

    We explain to you how companies are positioned strategically, organisationally, culturally and in terms of personnel in order to successfully manage the digital transformation. You will independently drive digitalisation strategies for companies that are about to or are in the process of digital transformation.

    You will learn about relevant technologies and understand how to build data-driven business models on a technological foundation in the age of the platform economy. In addition, you will develop a comprehensive understanding of a variety of relevant drivers of the future and deal intensively with data analytics, AI, VR, blockchain, digital leadership, digital strategy and digital governance, among others. In doing so, you will not only build your own network, but also important core competencies to advance the digital transformation as a Digital Transformation Manager.

    You will gain all the skills you need to apply your expertise to digital transformation and technology projects in large corporations and smaller start-ups. In addition to management and leadership skills against the backdrop of the digital transformation, you will acquire the ability to prepare key positions in the management of business innovations and to understand the underlying key technologies.

    We support best practice learning with external experts, because we strive for a high degree of practical relevance and want to ensure that you are up to the challenges of digital transformation. Your studies will not only provide you with the vision, but also with the tools to make your company or your career saddle-proof and future-proof.

The courses take place on Fridays and Saturdays, so you can continue to work – or use your studies as a springboard.
