Certificate in Digital Transformation

With rapid advances and changes in information technology, it is crucial that firms adapt their business models and systems to succeed in an ever-changing technological landscape. To lead an organization through a digital transformation, employers look to individuals who understand emerging technologies and think strategically about business problems.

The Certificate in Digital Transformation, Drexel’s interdisciplinary post-baccalaureate certificate program jointly offered by LeBow College of Business and College of Computing & Informatics (CCI), is designed to train the next generation of digital innovators.

The certificate is part of a suite of five business information technology certificates that can be applied toward Drexel’s Master of Science in Business Information Technology (MSBIT), also offered through LeBow and CCI.
