 Digitalization and digital transformation have become increasingly important for companies in all industries. Nowadays, companies must take into account the different developments according to the digitalization. Especially the development of new digital business ideas and the establishment of digital businesses e.g. Uber, AirBnB, Facebook, slideshare etc lead to new management approaches. These digital business models also require from company leader new leadership approaches. Therefore this course addresses the need for digitalization in business and new business development. The course is based on a variety of company cases that help students understand the topic of digital entrepreneurship and the different challenges in this regard.
