BUDS – Building Up Digital Strategists – is an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership developing a short practice-focused course on digital management consulting and, in parallel, exploring innovative methodologies in education as key elements for connecting higher education institutions and the labour market in the area of Management Consulting. Given that the demand for professionals with digital skills is more and more increasing.
Led by Tor Vergata University of Rome, BUDS involved a transnational partnership with University of Antwerp, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, University of Eastern Finland and Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Associate partners were Assoconsult Confindustria, Antwerp Management School and the YERUN network.
In the past three years, the BUDS partnership organised an Intensive Training Programme entitled Management Consulting in the Digital Age, engaging around 40 students from about 10 different YERUN universities every year.
In line with the Erasmus+ requirements, as a legacy for the future, the BUDS partnership is making available the three modules e-learning course on Digital Transformation Strategy (accessible from the project website) and the Guidelines on Blended Courses (an interactive pdf downloadable from the project website).
