Each year, AACSB recognizes institutions around the world that are creating relevant, impactful, and visionary business schools for tomorrow. This year DCU Business School’s BSc Digital Business and Innovation has been recognized with an Innovations That Inspire award.
As a critical part of the DCU Futures initiative, the BSc in Digital Business and Innovation was co-created with industry partners who are also involved in its delivery and evaluation. It aims to transform the learning of undergraduate students by reconceptualizing teaching; introducing exciting, new areas of study; and embedding digital literacies, disciplinary competencies, and transferable skills.
A critical cornerstone to the success of the degree is ongoing engagement with industry partners. As noted by DCU alum Brian Smyth, global innovation director at Accenture,
Accenture is delighted to partner with DCU to co-create DCU Futures—a groundbreaking initiative to transform the student learning experience. We passionately believe that traditional approaches to higher education need to be disrupted to prepare the next generation for an exciting but uncertain future.”
Caryn Beck-Dudley, AACSB president and CEO said
New demands from stakeholders require reimagined business school initiatives, and DCU Business School demonstrates a fresh way forward for business education. By leveraging innovation for knowledge co-creation, new methods of learning, and expanded educational access, business schools are meeting market expectations and increasing value for businesses, learners, and society.
