The course explores two key areas of knowledge related to digital economies. Firstly, from a broad perspective, it focuses on understanding how business professionals use digital technologies, platforms and infrastructures for fostering innovation in business models, products and services. Students learn how to conceptualise and identify key digital technologies, platforms and infrastructures, and how to adopt and adapt these solutions to particular organisational needs to foster business innovation. Secondly, from a more specialised perspective, the course focuses on explaining how social media in particular are used in organisational contexts for knowledge management, collaboration, innovation and marketing.
