If you are a leader, a manager, or an individual who will use digital technology to instigate and drive transformational change within your health care organisation, this course is for you.
Our MSc in Leading Digital Transformation aims to support leaders to challenge traditional practice, to be more curious about processes, and to ‘think digital first’ to re-imagine and improve their organisation and services for the benefit of their users, stakeholders, and employees.
The course will improve your awareness of digitalisation, allow you to understand change management, teach you how to create and reimagine new capabilities using technology and transform you into a visionary leader.
To best support your learning journey, the course will be delivered through intensive short blocks of learning of up to four hours of online delivery per week, supported by more extended periods of investigation and application.
Participants will also be able to gain the ILM Level 7 Diploma in Leadership and Management (Registration fees apply).
Funding is available to cover the full cost of tuition for students who work within Health and Social Care and that enrol for the March 2022 cohort. Sept 22 enrolments will pay a 25% contribution of the fee.
What you will study
The course uses three distinct strands of study which underpin the essence of digital transformation. That is:
- Digital Technology
- Innovation and Change
These distinct strands combine at regular points throughout the course in the form of practical challenges which provide opportunities for students to investigate their own organisation to identify areas that may benefit from interventions with digital technology to make measurable improvements and impact.
