Managing in the Digital Economy: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

VICTORIA, BC – This January, the University of Victoria’s Division of Continuing Studies is launching a new course, entitled Managing in the Digital Economy.

Designed for working business professionals, this online course examines how the evolution of information technology and systems is rapidly changing today’s business environment.

Instructor, Nav Bassi, says, “This course [aims to] demystify the opportunities and challenges created by technology and provide guidance on how to leverage technology for business success, while mitigating risk.” 

It’s important to note that this is not an IT course; it is a business course that business leaders, managers and decision-makers from any industry will find applicable.

The course will explain what the term “digital economy” means and discuss some of the challenges that can arise from it. Participants will learn how to make decisions on applying technology to address business needs, while also understanding and managing the inherent risks.

Director of Business & Management Programs, Richard Mimick, observes, “Although this is the first time we’re offering this course, it’s obviously a topic that resonates within the business community, as we are already seeing better than average enrollment numbers.”

Managing in the Digital Economy begins January 16 and is offered exclusively online, convenient for working professionals.

Since its inception in 1963, the Division of Continuing Studies (DCS) has been an integral part of the University of Victoria, providing adult and continuing education programming. Partnering with all UVic Faculties, it provides stimulating, high quality education opportunities to local as well as international learners.
