Digital Transformation MBA


The innovative Master of Digital Transformation Management is the only MBA program in Germany with a dedicated cross-industry focus on digital transformation since 2017. Designed in cooperation with the House of Digital Transformation, the program’s goal is to educate future leaders who understand the opportunities and challenges of digitization, make informed decisions, and shape the digital transformation in their companies. We achieve this through balancing theory and practice across the curriculum, bringing together experts from academia and industry to highlight how digital transformation can be leveraged in every area of business today.

The programs’ job-compatible format is designed to keep studies, work and leisure in balance over the entire study period of four semesters. The Master of Digital Transformation Management is conducted in English and begins annually in October. Graduates earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree (90 ECTS CP) from the AACSB-accredited Faculty of Economics and Business at Goethe University Frankfurt.


The Digital Transformation MBA makes a significant contribution to identifying the demands placed on future managers by the digital transformation, imparting the necessary knowledge and thus enabling graduates to successfully help shape the digital transformation in their companies. As part of its thematic focus on training and education, the HoDT is participating in this in-service training program with the aim of creating the necessary conditions for successful digital transformation in broad areas of the economy.
