About the Digital Disruption Chair
Digital technologies and strategies have disrupted industries and companies for over two decades. And it keeps accelerating: digital technologies continuously enable new business models and paradigms to emerge: think blockchain, AI, crypto, NFT, Web3, digital platforms, super-apps, or even digital sustainability.
While the job market demands more and more experts (in data, coding…), there is also a growing need for managers with a versatile set of digital skills, who understand and speak all digital “languages” to develop a strategic market and product view.
The ESSEC Digital Disruption Chair prepares students to become all-around digital managers, fit to work in and lead digital projects and teams within traditional organizations, pure tech players, digital transformation consultancies, startups, scale-ups, or VC funds.
The chair focuses on digital strategy, transformation, and business models. Strategy is also studied through marketing, operations, finance, ethics, sustainability, and geopolitics.
