Kandidat i
Digital Innovation and Management

Om uddannelsen

På kandidatuddannelsen i Digital Innovation & Management vil du tilegne dig viden, færdigheder og værktøjer til at forstå og håndtere komplekse og turbulente digitale forandrings- og innovationsprocesser i forskellige typer af organisationer.

Digitale teknologier udvikler sig konstant og påvirker dermed organisationer, mennesker og samfund på nye og uforudsete måder. Det skaber udfordringer, som kræver evnen til dels at træffe kompetente beslutninger og dels foretage løbende justeringer af strategiske, organisatoriske og praktiske tilltag indenfor ledelse og organisation. Grundlaget for at kunne træffe de rette beslutninger er en dyb forståelse af mennesker, teknologi og digital forandring. 


Du bliver indført i en tværfaglig tilgang til kvalitative og kvantitative metoder og rammer for forståelse af management og udvikling af IT. Du lærer om management og innovation som både teoretiske og praktiske udfordringer og tilegner dig samfundsvidenskabelige færdigheder for at forstå såvel kvalitative som kvantitative aspekter af teknologi. På uddannelsen vil du blive introduceret til en række digitale værktøjer, som kan bruges til analytiske og organisatoriske formål.

Undervisningssproget er engelsk.

Studiets opbygning

Samfundet står i dag over store udfordringer på områder som energi, sundhed, klima og økonomi, og det bliver stadig mere klart, at IT-management, organisation, og innovation samt de komplekse relationer mellem mennesker og teknologi må nytænkes. Derfor giver uddannelsen dig en tværfaglig tilgang til aktuelle problemer, plads til at afprøve nye måder for at knytte informationsteknologi og mennesker sammen på samt kombinerer en række kompetencer fra forskellige fagområder, som fx etnografi, business, informations studier, IT-management, ledelse, innovation og IT i samfundsmæssig kontekst. 

Digital Innovation & Management er fleksibelt opbygget. Den giver dig solide kompetencer inden for uddannelsens område, samtidig med at den giver dig muligheden for at specialisere dig inden for et område, som du igen i høj grad selv definerer indholdet af. Det betyder, at du - med udgangspunkt i den faglighed, du har fra din bacheloruddannelse - igennem studiet har stor frihed til at danne din egen unikke profil.

Specialisering: Process Innovation and New Business Models

Digital innovations rapidly transform the fundamental nature of many organizations. This specialization focuses on the role of digital technologies in enabling incremental and radical innovations in organizations, both at the business model level and at the level of individual processes/services.  The courses and projects are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills to support, design, manage, and reflect on digital innovation initiatives in complex organizational settings.

Spring Semester:

Digital Business Models 

The emergence and evolution of new digital technologies creates new opportunities for organizations to profit and make value of digitization. This course focuses on capturing and understanding the new business models that emerge and how organizations implement these models in ways that create value for all stakeholders.

The course covers economic, social, and cultural elements of business models and investigates how different business models create, deliver, and capture value in different ways.

Case studies are an essential part of the course and may include business models like: open innovation, digital platforms and ecosystems, sharing and owning economy, social entrepreneurship and crowdfunding. 

 

Autumn Semester:

Process Innovation

Organizations constantly need to respond to changing requirements and new opportunities in order to stay competitive. This course focuses on process innovation as a way to redesign organizational work processes and reconfigure internal and external resources to sense and respond to new opportunities and challenges.

The course will cover:

  • The fundamentals of process-oriented management (e.g., lifecycle and maturity models) 
  • Theories, frameworks, and methods for both continuous and radical process innovation (e.g., ambidextrous organizational design)
  • How digital technologies (e.g., Internet of Things, blockchain, artificial intelligence) can support continuous and radical process innovation

The specialization also comprises a specialization project in the autumn semester, in which you can draw on the contents of both courses, digital business models and process innovation.

 

 

Specialisering: Big Data

Big data offers opportunities and risks, requiring deep technical knowledge as well as critical skills to analyse the quality and impact of any approach or solution. Making sense of data is a key interdisciplinary challenge for many organizations, institutions and governments so that they can understand and adapt quickly to changing conditions. A hospital could incorporate GPS data about the actual location of its ambulances and helicopters with data about the mission these vehicles are involved in, as well as the emergency calls and current status in various emergency rooms in order to take decisions in real-time when faced with an emergency call (also in the face of large-scale disasters). Step counters and mobile phones can be connected with Amazon Echo voice-activated assistant to help manage family life while potentially allowing a range of vendors to ensure in-store availability of groceries and other staples the family might need when they need it. While both these scenarios evoke a future of efficiency and convenience, they also raise issues about privacy and the influence such data services might have on work practices and everyday lives.

Extracting value from big data depends in part on solving engineering challenges and hiring data scientists, but the key lies in interdisciplinary and critical analyses of big data processes and solutions. The courses in this specialization offer an opportunity for students to engage with technical challenges, organizational processes and societal concerns around big data. Most importantly, students will learn how to translate critical and theoretical tools they have gained throughout the program into practice and application.  

Spring Semester:

Big Data Processes

Business, governmental and non-governmental organisations increasingly rely on big data to shape data-driven processes. Such big data processes, based on the discovery of meaningful patterns in data, can be used to analy- se complex phenomena or to build predictive models. In this class, we will review the technological trends that underlie the advent of big data more generally. We will discuss the potentials of big data processes and their limitations from technical, ethical and organizational points of view, especially in the cases where personal data is involved. Students will learn basic hands-on analytics approaches using Tableau Public. 

Autumn Semester:

Critical Big Data Management

There is no longer one approach that can fit all data management problems. For each problem, IT specialists have to decide on appropriate models and systems to handle the relevant data. In this course, we will address the critical issues that emerge in the course of collection, management, processing and analytics of large-scale data. We will discuss modern approaches to organizing and making sense of large data sets. We will cover the principles of big data analysis, and illustrate a group-based hands-on approach to big data modeling and management while addressing the increasingly important societal issues these principles and approaches address and problematize. Students will be introduced to basic quantitative methods and technical skills to be able to assess current approaches to big data management and analytics as well as critical theoretical tools for identification and discussion of potential pitfalls, obstacles and opportunities that working with data and analytics may bring up.

This course is run in parallel with a Technical Big Data Management course on the Software Development Masters program and students are expected to work in cross-program groups on the three projects that make up the core of the course. The goal is to create an experience where students must negotiate disparate backgrounds and technical expertise to achieve common goals. 

Specialisering: Digital Democratic Citizenship

This specialization is directed towards students who want to critically investigate and understand the larger sociotechnical consequences of their work in communication and design. The two courses are designed to give students tools and competences to analyze the profound and ongoing changes of democracy and citizenship in digital society.

Students will learn to critically evaluate the potential of technology design and architecture for democracy and citizenship as well as its limitations due to surveillance and privacy issues. In interaction with researchers and practitioners, this specialization provides theoretical, methodological and practical insights into the challenges and potential of technology for democracy.

Many would argue that new media technologies reshape how we vote, protest, resist, deliberate, participate, organize, and manage our everyday lives as citizens in a democratic society. By taking a macroperspective on the performance of digital democratic citizenship, this specialization aims at providing the students with a critical and self-reflective perspective to understand and contribute to social change through technology.

Spring Semester: 

Digital Democratic Citizenship
The goal of this course is to introduce methods and theoretical concepts, which will be used in the specialization. During the course the students develop a conceptual and practical understanding of digital democratic citizenship and equip themselves with methodological tools.

Autumn Semester:

Digital Democratic Citizenship in Research and Practice 
In this course the students use the theoretical and methodological tools introduced in the first part of the specialization. They will work on small research projects together with
