Today, the research and study of the social sciences of the Internet (online life) is so relevant to individuals, businesses and governments that they will play competitive advantages in regional, national and global landscapes in the short future.

Furthermore, the paradigm shifted from an economy based on natural resources, physical inputs and value chains based on physical infrastructure to one based on new knowledge, digital technology. Therefore, decision-making processes and global value chains are increasingly influenced by digital tools and systems, social media, and consumer data.

There are driving forces – political, social, cultural, economic and technological – that are promoting a disruptive change in digital ecosystems: first, Internet of documents (Adobe), second, Internet of commerce (Amazon, eBay , Alibaba, etc …), thirdly, the Internet of People (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) and, more recently, the Internet of Things (IoT). Our Digital Business and Data Science B.Sc. The program offers students a deep insight into the future.

This transformation, also called the Fourth Industrial Revolution, is influencing innovative and growth strategies, conceptual models of design thinking and innovation management, technological convergence, business modeling, consumer behavior, management of branding, marketing and communication on social media, online sales and customer relationship management. The same goes for the reengineering of processes, operations, and supply chain management systems. Last but not least, you are shaping data science and new insights, data security and privacy, corporate governance, and policy making.

This study program is specifically aimed at students who are curious and have the creativity to imagine and the aspiration to learn and develop something new that impacts the world and changes their lives.

Our students have multidisciplinary backgrounds, different nationalities, diverse cultures, and multiple perspectives. You will learn to develop entrepreneurial and innovative projects that combine new knowledge about digital technologies and business administration and management, while responding to the disruptive challenges of the corporate industry. If you want to participate in an advanced content curriculum and innovative pedagogical experience, while interacting with a highly qualified team of teachers, who will support you individually throughout the program and beyond, then the B.Sc. The program is a differentiator.
