Graduate Certificate in Digital Transformation

Who is the Digital Transformation Certificate program for?

Drexel’s interdisciplinary Post-Baccalaureate/Graduate Certificate in Digital Transformation, jointly offered by the LeBow College of Business and College of Computing & Informatics (CCI), is designed to train the next generation of digital innovators. With rapid advances and changes in information technology, it is crucial that firms adapt their business models and systems to succeed in an ever-changing technological landscape. To lead an organization through a digital transformation, employers look to individuals who understand emerging technologies and think strategically about business problems.

The certificate is part of a suite of five Business Information Technology certificates that can be applied toward Drexel’s Master of Science in Business Information Technology (MSBIT), also offered through LeBow and CCI. Three certificates must be completed to earn the MS degree, including our required foundational Certificate in Information Technology Management.
