The Digital Leadership Programme takes place over five consecutive days on campus. There are also informal evening activities where you can get to know fellow participants – and learn more about their experiences in different sectors and specialisms.

Success stories

Ellen De Blender

What I liked a lot about the programme is that it builds on best practices from the market. Successful companies build the capabilities they need and develop the skills to face these new realities. Otherwise, they might miss new opportunities, be oblivious to competitors, and misunderstand the needs of customers. Read more.

Marloes Van Koten

For my new role at PVH, I was looking for some tools and guidance on how to be a digital transformation leader. The programme showed me the complexity of digital transformation and that it is different from any other transformation: it’s about technology and change, but even more about people management.

Dirk van Lier

I appreciated the high academic level and the many applicable insights for my daily business practice. The assignments we worked on during the evenings allowed me to apply the theory to my professional life immediately. One major take-away for me was, “Always test your assumptions in the market."
