Take the next step in your career and prepare yourself to be a leader in today’s rapidly changing digital landscape with DeGroote’s EMBA in Digital Transformation.

The Executive MBA in Digital Transformation is a unique program. It’s the first EMBA in the world in which students focus on learning how to manage digital systems and how to use those systems to make data-driven decisions, lead complex and diverse teams in digital environments, and recruit exciting new talent.

This innovative program is made up of four residential modules, held in Canada and Silicon Valley, California. Students learn from faculty instructors in the classroom and from industry experts on site. These experts include senior executives from our corporate partners:

 


As an EMBA in Digital Transformation student, you will:

  • Study core EMBA topics such as finance, marketing, and strategy, while also learning technical content more often associated with master-level courses in data science and business analytics.
  • Learn how to use data to make strategic decisions, mitigate risk, and drive business innovation.
  • Broaden your technical and managerial knowledge while deepening your strategic thinking skills and leadership capabilities.

This unique combination of skills and knowledge will help you advance your career in organizations from various industries that value digitally-driven innovation and “big data” insight.

Why did you choose the DeGroote EMBA?

I chose the DeGroote EMBA because I felt the EMBA program was best suited to help me develop the tools to succeed in today and tomorrow’s increasingly digital economy. Furthermore, the structure of 4 residencies and online modules has allowed me to continue my regular work without significant impact.

What do you foresee as your career trajectory? Is digital transformation a key component? Is the context different for you as a physician?

As a physician, I do see digital transformation as a key component of my industry. Healthcare will be changing dramatically over the next 10-20 years as it is affected by digital transformation. I plan on playing a role both as a clinician and also in administrative roles to help usher new technology and business models into the healthcare space.

Any general thoughts regarding your experience so far?

Having completed our first residency several weeks ago, I feel as though I’ve jumped in both feet first. It has been an intensive introduction into the fundamentals of business, like finance and accounting, and an introduction to the tech industry through our Strategic Information Systems course, and the first step on our leadership journey. It has been a tough but exciting journey so far.
