The Executive Diploma in Digital Leadership has been expertly designed for business leaders and senior managers. Study at Warwick Business School at The Shard, and learn how to make strategic recommendations with confidence.


The Executive Diploma in Digital Leadership is for business leaders and senior managers who want to develop a successful strategic roadmap in their organisation and to lead and seize opportunities in a digital age.

Until now, state-of-the-art strategic thinking has promoted strategies based on competitor analysis of close sector rivals. Now, the impacts of digital transformation are so broad that the most disruptive competition is likely to come from outside, and from businesses about which executives may have an incomplete understanding.

Taught from WBS London, The Shard, Executive Diploma in Digital Leadership delivers that in-depth understanding, facilitated by WBS faculty at the cutting-edge of thinking on the transformative potential of digital technology for contemporary business.
