Across the IPBS network, our students have the opportunity to meet and to learn from experts of various fields how to be a successful global leader in an era of digital transformation.

Last week, PwC expert tells LUMS students the skills required to succeed in future. A leading figure at PricewaterhouseCoopers gave Lancaster University Management School students a steer on the challenges that lie ahead in their business careers.

PwC Chief Digital Officer and board member Jon Andrews delivered the Assaf Lennon Memorial Lecture to first-year undergraduates, entitled ‘New World New Skills’.

It is the fourth year Mr Andrews has given the lecture, and this year he focused on the need for future workers to develop their agility, resilience and bravery for the future technological challenges of the global economy.

Prof. Dr Martin Mocker from ESB Business School at Reutlingen University publishes a book of digital transformation.

ESB Business School Professor of Information Systems Martin Mocker co-authored the book “Designed for Digital: How to Architect Your Business for Sustained Success” together with Jeanne Ross from MIT and Cynthia Beath from the University of Texas at Austin.

“Designed for Digital” offers practical advice on digital transformation of “big, old” companies, with examples that include Amazon, BNY Mellon, DBS Bank, LEGO, Philips, Schneider Electric, USAA, and many other global organizations. Drawing on five years of research and in-depth case studies, the book is an essential guide for companies that want to disrupt rather than be disrupted in the new digital landscape.

DCU gets ready for the future: Dublin City University is playing a key role in the testing of next generation technologies for the micromobility industry following confirmation that the university’s Glasnevin campus will act as a test-bed for the deployment of technologies devised by the Luna consortium on electric scooters (e-scooters) provided by US company Blue Duck.

Earlier this morning, Luna, comprising of Transpoco, a leader in vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions and Taoglas, the world’s leading provider of next-generation IoT solutions, both of whom are based at DCU Alpha (the university’s innovation campus) announced a partnership with U.S. e-scooter operator Blue Duck, to pilot its centimeter-level location technology ahead of commercial roll-out.

The pilot project which will take place in Dublin City University’s private campus road network aims to provide valuable control and governance data to inform Irish and global policy formulation on e-scooter usage.

Over this month the graduation ceremonies will take place at the partner schools NC State in Raleigh/USA, NEOMA Business School in Reims/France and UCSC in Piacenza/Italy. We wish all of our graduates a good start in their professional lives and all the best in their future endeavours.
