BUDS project

The EU-funded BUDS (Building Up Digital Strategists) project is implemented by a consortium composed by five YERUN members (Rome Tor Vergata UniversityUniversidad Carlos III de MadridUniversity of Eastern FinlandUniversity Nova de Lisboa and University of Antwerp) and three associated partner (YERUN, Antwerp Management School and Confindustria Assoconsult).

The wider context of the project is determined by the large impact  Digital Transformation can have on the economic growth potential of Europe and the relevant role Management Consulting industry is playing as a key enabler of digital transformation processes.

In particular, the digital skills gap between the strong demand coming from the job market and the limited availability of training opportunities on digital innovationfor students in higher education institutions. 

The project aims to:

  • Explore innovative ways to strengthen knowledge on digital topics;
  • Implement consulting skills required in digital transformation processes
  • Linking education to this ever-changing labour market.

The project expected result is to design course contents and course materials in the area of Digital Management Consulting:

  • Open Access platform
  • Intensive Training Programme
  • Guidelines for a Course Design Format
