Preparing for a Career in Technology and Innovation

Wednesday, June 05, 2019 at 1am

Digital technologies are bringing about significant gaps in the workplace and organizations are desperate to find talented professionals to fulfil the demand. This evolution of business means the traditional MBA is also having to become more versatile in not just what it teaches, but how it’s taught too.

ISDI, a leading innovator in teaching technology explain how best to prepare students for an exciting future of technology and innovation within digital business.

Dedicated to novel technologies

From the presence of Google’s Alexa in our homes, to contactless payments in the supermarket, novel automation and digital technologies now play a pivotal role in our everyday lives.

But when it comes to these new technologies within the world of business, in order to cope with them, you have to get to know them. Digital vision, digital business execution, digital leadership and business context are just some disciplines which students delve right into. Having a genuine understanding of these areas will ensure they’re able to deal with the emergence of new business technologies.

Innovative exposure to digital skills and professional tools

In order to prepare you for the modern workplace, tools and concepts including artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, internet of things (IoT) and robotics are key. This exposure ensures MBA graduates are able to leverage new technology to devise revolutionary business models and strategies.

Networking with some of the world’s leading digital industries

Sometimes talking to people in the know can really help improve your understanding of the technology sector and the things you need to know to conquer the competitive job market. Google, LinkedIn and Accenture are just a handful of industry leaders who are keen to speak with Digital MBA students about the world of digital business.

Action-based learning opportunities

Speaking of leading digital companies, the Digital MBA offers the opportunity for an internship with the likes of Meliá and Accenture, allowing career seekers to gain a genuine insight into the world of digital business and the chance to explore the implementation of novel digital technological trends.

Location can also have a big impact on the access it offers to industry innovators. Being in the heart of Spain’s capital, Madrid, means ISDI's students are in close proximity to some of the country’s most innovative technology and business hubs, perfectly situated for internships and post-graduate job opportunities - a definite plus.

Working on real-life projects

 In order to properly understand the theories and practices you learn in the classroom is having the opportunity to apply them in the real world, allowing them to see and understand the digitization of a traditional business and a great way to harness digital business skills and technical acumen.
