Spotlight Module: "Entrepreneurial Thinking & Digital Models"

In the "Entrepreneurial Thinking & Digital Models" module, students explore the concept of entrepreneurial thinking and its theoretical underpinnings. They recognize the significant role of entrepreneurial thinking in driving innovations, particularly in the context of digital transformation. Additionally, students differentiate between digital entrepreneurship and digital transformation, reflecting on the unique challenges and opportunities each presents.

Furthermore, students critically examine their own thinking patterns, from self-critical analysis to necessary adaptations. They gain a thorough understanding of business model concepts and their components, as well as the intricacies of digital markets and the economics of digital enterprises. Equipped with this knowledge, students can identify and differentiate digital business models, analyze existing models for their potential in digital transformation, and utilize tools for shaping or innovating upon them.
