Following the success of its first edition last year, the Digital Futures Academy – an initiative launched by Capgemini and SDA Bocconi School of Management with the aim of training new digital talents, professionals and executives, providing them with the necessary skills to apply new technologies to different markets – will be repeated in 2022. The aim is to train professionals capable of integrating technological skills and business knowledge to support companies along the path of digital transformation.
Designing Business Transformation
Companies increasingly need talent specialized in digital technologies who are also able to design Business Transformation in an integrated way. With this goal in mind, SDA Bocconi School of Management and Capgemini decided to create the Digital Futures Academy, aimed at young graduates as well as experienced professionals and the entire corporate management team. The Scientific Director of the Academy is Severino Meregalli, Associate Professor of Information Systems Practice, SDA Bocconi.
This second edition will start in the coming months and will be open to young Italian and overseas graduates in STEM disciplines and economics, who will have access to a three-week targeted training course in English held by SDA Bocconi professors, Capgemini experts and industry professionals. The initiative will allow participants to lay the foundations for their career in the world of consulting, innovation and digital transition also with the possibility of joining Capgemini once the course is completed.
