RMIT Online is launching an online course titled Digital Transformation to help executives and professionals future-proof their careers in the digital era.

Developed in partnership with REA Group, Paper Giant and Tigerspike, the course is made up of five components which each run for six weeks.

The university said it believes the course will appeal to managerial professionals and organisations — across all industries — looking to take a proactive approach to developing the skills necessary to stay relevant in the wake of disruption.

“Digital disruption is changing the way people study, work and live and many of our students are looking for flexible, targeted and industry-focused learning options that they are able to apply immediately,” said Martin Bean, RMIT Vice Chancellor and President.

“Through courses like this, we are creating real industry connections and collaboration opportunities to ensure our students have the right skills for the future world of work – wherever they are located and at whatever stage of their career they are in.”

Digital Transformation will take students through the following:

  • Human Centred Design
  • Product Development and Innovation
  • Digital Marketing Fundamentals
  • CX Strategy and Design
  • Digital Delivery with Agile

Each program in the course costs $770 and runs for six weeks. Students can enrol in the full Digital Transformation program for $3,080, a 20 per cent saving.

The course has been designed with industry to meet the demand for hard and soft skills in the digital space, with the portfolio sitting at the nexus of business, design and technology.

With so much change in workplaces as business tries to transform to meet digital disruption, individuals need to update their skills and be ready and confident in the digital economy,” said Helen Souness, CEO, RMIT Online.

“At RMIT Online, we believe that individuals and businesses need to understand workforce trends quickly to adapt their strategy to meet these opportunities. This course aims to do that.”

Earlier this year RMIT Online introduced an eight-week course called Developing Blockchain Strategy and last year launched a coding course called iOS App Development with Swift.
