Courses for Decision Makers

Organized by the Academy and delivered by accomplished EPFL professors and seasoned industry professionals. These courses are designed for those who want to better understand ICT and Digital Trust topics.

Foundations of ICT and Digital Trust

To be able to understand fundamental data protection challenges, interpret the technical implications of privacy, understand current digital trends such as artificial intelligence and blockchains, and communicate properly with technical experts who develop and maintain digital systems, it is crucial for professionals to have a core understanding of notions and concepts from computer science and information security.

Intended for professionals who see information and communication technologies (ICT) as an opportunity to better engage with beneficiaries and clients, this 5-day course will give you and your organization the ability to take more leadership responsibilities in digital innovation, instead of merely moderating between IT stakeholders.

Advanced Courses

The advanced courses elaborate over the modules and topics included in the Foundations of ICT course and provide a deeper and richer dive into each of those topics.

The first advanced course is currently under development and more information will be available soon. Stay tuned!
