Big Data, Analytics and IoT – 10 ECTS

This course aims to analyze the fundamental concepts and main applications of data analysis in a digital context.

More specifically, it focuses on the applications of various data analysis techniques to extract meaningful patterns from structured and unstructured data sets in virtualization environments based on virtual machines.

Students will learn how to leverage different real-time Big Data Analytics frameworks to extract and analyze data collected from various inputs. The analysis will be performed using various techniques, including classification, clustering, regression, and other machine learning algorithms.

Applied Research Methods for Business – 10 ECTS

This course aims to help students acquire the basic skills to conduct research in an academic and scientific context.

In fact, each course in the Master’s program will require a degree of research for group work or for the completion of exams, especially the final module, which will require extensive research, both primary and secondary.

This module aims to provide students with a solid introduction and foundation in the main qualitative and quantitative research techniques used in both academic and commercial business research.

Digital Transformation Strategy – 10 ECTS

Digital technologies are transforming the way individuals and organizations conduct business. This module will enable students to gain an understanding of how advancements in information systems, mobile communication technologies, and internet-based technologies are leading to radical changes in the economic landscape, business models, and growth strategies of organizations.

The focus of the module is on how individuals and managers respond to the challenge of new technologies by developing innovative strategies, leading transformation and change, and enhancing their own skills and competencies to compete in the digital world.

Design Thinking – 10 ECTS

Design thinking is a method that can be used to address a wide range of problems and issues: it can be leveraged in creating new products, services, and processes, as well as in solving and improving existing problems and situations. This course is based on the use of real case studies and built around the notion of learning by doing: students will be required to work as team members during the module, using design thinking to attempt to address a series of real business problems.

Regular workshops will be structured to provide sufficient support to students, allowing them, at the same time, to have an appropriate space for engaging independently in the necessary learning processes to complete the module successfully.

This module addresses the ways in which individuals and organizations can effectively implement digital aspects in marketing planning.

The course begins with an analysis of the macro and microenvironments related to an organization, and then provides students with an overview of the key tools and strategies that an individual or company can implement to create the most effective marketing mix, manage offline and online channels, and implement key digital tools to help achieve business objectives.

Entrepreneurship in the digital age – 10 ECTS

Drawing from H-FARM’s experience and its work with start-ups across Europe, this module has been designed from the outset to be a truly hands-on experience for all participants.

Students will be taught how to transform ideas and projects into a viable business form through relevant literature, case studies, and workshops. They will work following the lean start-up methodology; therefore, each class will have specific learning tasks and expected outcomes.
