Hyper Island Heads to Amsterdam
The global digital education institute Hyper Island has decided to come to Amsterdam for the very first time, offering a newly designed course – Digital Strategy. The course is designed for professionals who aspire to develop their competence in digital management, planning and leading digital projects and processes. The spring holds two courses in Amsterdam, the first starting in February and is located at our local partner The Gardeners.
"It feels like it is time to enter the dutch market. We’ve had numerous requests for local courses, much due to the great number of alumni spreading the word about Hyper Island. Our aim is to engage more people and through them help companies manage and lead the digital change," says Johanna Frelin, CEO at Hyper Island.
Hyper Island originates from Sweden and has educated and equipped young adults as well as business executives with the tools to master businesses in the changing society for almost 20 years. The course Digital Strategy is a new program designed to empower participants with a broader and deeper understanding of today´s digital landscape and how to lead purposeful change. Several participants have already witnessed successful deliveries in Stockholm, Malmö, Gothenburg and Copenhagen.
"You´ll get great methods to use, insights to share with colleagues, friends and customers, new ideas, ways of collaboration and tools to lead change," says Helena Johansson, Senior Project Manager, Svenska Dagbladet.
The ambition is to provide participants with clarity, confidence, skills and tools to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing world. Anyone can join the course, and we can see a big interest among participants with a background in business strategy, project management as well as the creative field.
Digital Strategy is set up as an evening course over 10 weeks, starting up with two full days, followed by seven weekly evening sessions and one full day to wrap it up. There are two courses planned in Amsterdam this spring, the first one starting February 12th and will be hosted at The Gardeners' Vondelkerk.
