Executive MBA Digital Leadership

If you want to successfully digitalize your company as an executive, you must be able to inspire people for the digital transformation. This requires an innovative vision, a strong understanding of technology and excellent communication skills. To this end, the HWZ has created the Executive MBA – Digital Leadership under the direction of Sunnie J. Groeneveld and Manuel P. Nappo. The curriculum of the course, which is based on the three pillars “Digital Business and Technology”, “Digital Culture and Leadership” and “Digital Vision”, also includes the organization and realization of a TEDx event.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
