However, to be successful in offering products and services online requires specific business skills. The internet provides a wealth of opportunities, but also incorporates risks for organizations which need to be understood and controlled. In this course, you will learn<br /> about the factors driving the performance of your web shop, deepen your understanding of the role of logistics and customer support in E-Fulfillment, and learn about financial performance indicators as well as develop effective digital marketing strategies.</p> <p><strong>Big Data & Business Analytics</strong><br /> Big data is being generated by everything around us, continuously and in every sector and function in the global economy. It comes from multiple sources, in a variety of formats and arrives in both high volume and high velocity. Being able to use this vast resource will help you make effective strategic decisions. This course looks at where we can find data, how we can transform it and how we can use it in the decision-making process. You will gain insight and<br /> knowledge in how big data creates value through making information transparent. This allows you to make better decisions concerning efficiency, performance and risk management. It provides for better market segmentation and allow firms to better tailor products to consumer<br /> needs, as well as providing essential information for the next generation of products.</p> <p><strong>Cybersecurity</strong><br /> Our increasing usage of online information systems for everyday business activities, means that more and more businesses are holding valuable information digitally either on local servers or in the cloud. This high level of digital interactivity demands the need for increased digital information security, namely cybersecurity. In this course you will learn how to anticipate, deter,<br /> detect and resist cyber-attacks on digital assets and activities. You will learn about the core knowledge and skills in how an organization can protect its valuable information assets and systems from identity theft, scams, fraud and attacks. Strategic planning and ethically concerns also form a core part of the discussion.</p> Thu, 02/22/2018 - 10:41 1139589 1139589 Master in Taxation and Finance of the Digital Economy (MEde) <p><strong>The Master in Taxation and Finance of the Digital Economy (MEde) aims to create experts in a specific field of crucial relevancy</strong>—the development of the digital economy, specifically in the European and international contexts, concentrating on taxation, finance, and market structures of digital businesses. Our graduates will be capable of working on the edge of a complex frontier characterized by specific taxation, financial, judicial, and competition issues. In particular, beyond acquiring a basic understanding of new ways of producing and distributing services specific to digital enterprises, MEde graduates will have access to innovative tools ideal for confronting three new business areas:</p> <ul> <li>the problems surrounding the identification, geographic or otherwise, of the sources of net proceeds, as well as the allocation and control of connected financial flows;</li> <li>the issues related to taxation systems and their adaptation to increasingly mobile and digital business activities; and</li> <li>the constantly changing definitions of “relevant market” and “state aid,” as well as the connected radical transformations in economic and legal principles governing competition, along with their increasing link to taxation problems.</li> </ul> <p>Each of these three areas transcend national borders and have, as a baseline, the European and international markets. The program, therefore, is focused on creating professionals capable of working with the European institutions dedicated to the protection of competition and those overseeing the linked taxation and fiscal policies, national entities of EU member states tackling the abovementioned problems at European levels, major organizations with a European or international presence focused on the field of digital economy, taxation and finances, as well as relevant departments of businesses operating in the web economy. Our graduates’ technical and analytical competencies combine to create the ideal professional for employment at European institutions or those seeking to position themselves as an interlocutor between national economic entities and European institutions. </p> Thu, 02/22/2018 - 10:34 1139587 1139587 Digital Entertainment Design and Production <p>At the end of the day, regardless of the chosen medium (games or film), the focus of the Digital Entertainment Design and Production program is telling stories. We love good stories, both telling them and listening to them. This program combines art, computer science and communications and provides students with fundamental skills that apply to careers in the film, game design and digital illustration industries. Probably the best thing about the DED program is that we are all alike. In this program, it is ok to be a movie nerd and a game geek, because we are all movie nerds and game geeks. We have the opportunity to shape the next generation of movies and games and take the experience of storytelling to a whole new level. If you love movies, games or storytelling in general, this program and career path might be the perfect fit.</p> Thu, 02/22/2018 - 09:58 1137100 1137100 Digital Operating Room Summer School (DORS) 2018 <p>The integration of new technical infrastructure and technologies as well as the variety of resulting information present new challenges for physicians, engineers and manufacturers.
