Companies will be assigned to each group, and group supervision will be provided throughout the whole module.

2. A series of guest lectures with leading individuals from different parts of the industry, from Tech start-ups to large companies, as well as media companies and entrepreneurs. These lectures intend to give the students knowledge of digital transformation in a number of different industries, and give them the possibility to discuss ongoing changes with experienced and inspired individuals
