Your opportunity


Predicting the effects of strategic decisions is essential, because the success or failure of your projects depend on the correct or wrong predictions. Today the wide availability of data held by companies can give substantial support to these forecasts. This program helps you to master and innovate decision-making processes using information in the most effective and valuable way.

What Participants say about us

The STRATEGIC INNOVATION IN THE DIGITAL ERA course provided me with the unique opportunity to learn how to adequately and methodically evaluate innovative projects in both corporate and entrepreneurial contexts, an invaluable skillset that finally enables me to turn vague ideas into tangible opportunities that generate value to the business organisations I am part of

Francesco Lupis, Nationality: Italian
Investment Associate at Europa Investimenti

Today's managers need tools to make decisions with uncertain outcomes. This course provides a framework to make these decisions using critical thinking and data. It's a one step up from making decisions showing tables and graphs without a framework, or a framework without data.
