Achieving success with data-driven business development

Many people imagine that a data-driven business strategy can be the way to improving one’s bottom line. The only problem is that not all companies have the right expertise to do this. Thomas Ritter guides you through the nine skill-sets that are essential for enabling your company to be ready for profitable data-driven transformation. There will also be an opportunity to analyse your company real time on CBS’s digital platform.

Transforming big data sets into assets

Business Data Analytics is a powerful tool for creating commercial value. Ravi Vatrapu will explain how you can create value and competitive advantages at your company based on your company’s own data, which can be transformed into meaningful facts using new technology.

Alternative investments and robotics: New skills needed in the financial sector

Low interest rates and costly stock markets have prompted the pension sector to sharply increase its investments in brand-new assets: hotels, hospitals, wind farms and direct lending to companies. This requires new skills at the investment departments. Where should they come from? And the fourth industrial revolution is leading to large-scale digitalization, automation and the use of robotics. How does this impact the skill-sets required for the next generation of employees in the financial sector?

Meet the Employees of Tomorrow!

An impressive array of Copenhagen Business School students from Denmark and abroad will host several small group sessions with 5 to 7 participants each. The students come from a wide cross-section of study programmes and have prepared high-energy group work brimming with discussion topics about the workplace of tomorrow, career preferences, notions of good leadership/management, and much more besides. In return, participants will have an opportunity to try out their viewpoints, ideas and ‘prejudices’ on the ‘next generation’. This will be high-intensity group work with lots of discussions. Therefore, we suggest that participants consider some of these topics before their encounter with the next generation of leaders to ensure that the dialogue is as crisp and intense as possible.
