Digital technologies are deeply reshaping our society and economy. In particular, they are transforming the management of organizations in every aspect. Against this backdrop, the objective of this course is to provide students with a broad and solid grasp of the challenges and opportunities raised by datafication (the transformation of social action into data) and digitization (the conversion of information into a digital format).
