What can the Master offer you?

Through this executive program, the Chair of Connected Industry - part of the Higher Technical School of Engineering (ICAI) at Comillas Pontifical University - trains leaders and professionals in the most cutting-edge leadership and digital transformation skills. Digital transformation is not a trend, it is vision, it is strategy, organisational culture, process redesign.

A new field is opening up to be explored and new knowledge and training are needed to face digital transformation with guarantees of success: a change that involves new ways of working with digital and collaborative platforms, with new engagement strategies and new ways of attracting and managing talent, a new mentality towards work.
