TECH4BIZ – Technology for Business Professionals

Are you managing, selling, or collaborating with tech but don’t really get it? Our Tech4Biz intensive course helps reduce the gap between tech roles and business people in charge of delivering or running tech-related products.

Learn what leading business experts from Microsoft, SAS, Emarsys and Green Fox Academy have to say about improving your tech skills for today’s business world. Watch our TECH UP YOUR BUSINESS WEBINAR:

WHY IS IT ESSENTIAL TO HAVE A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF TECH?

Firms that have implemented digital technologies tend to perform better than non-digital firms. (Who is prepared for the new digital age? – EIB 2020)

Nowadays we cannot talk about “tech” and “non-tech” jobs. Technology is already deeply embedded in nearly every product and service. This is why we believe it is essential for non-tech people to speak and understand the “tech” language too.

ABOUT THE COURSE

Hands-on and in-depth

We believe that a knowledge gap cannot be filled by theory alone. Whenever we learn a new theoretical concept, we immediately put it into practice, based on real-life scenarios and projects. What you will get:

  • 20 hours of Coding: Introduction to coding, algorithms, and data structures. Learn how to use basic tools, how to deliver small projects and where to search for help. HTML, CSS, basics of JavaScript, Git, deployment, process automation, etc.
  • 6 hours of IT project management: IT as a megatrend, Industry 4.0: markets and relevancy, basics of IT PM, budgeting process of IT projects, glimpse into agile & SCRUM
