Digitalization is transforming vast areas of our economy and society. Companies are changing the way they operate as digital technology revolutionizes their processes and distribution channels. In response, demand is growing for qualified individuals who combine management expertise with a profound knowledge of digital technology.
Digital Technologies Specialization - Only in Heilbronn!
Heilbronn is famous for being a region of world market leaders. Both the city itself and the surrounding areas boast a high concentration of innovative, family-led small and medium-sized enterprises. Many of these firms are highly specialized and have achieved top positions in global markets. These “hidden champions” are constantly on the look-out for new employees with expertise in management and technology. They are particularly interested in those who have a specialism in digital technology.
For our students, that means great career prospects. Many jobs are available in fields such as automotive and mechanical engineering, metal production and processing, electrical engineering and plastics processing, the food industry, paper, printing and publishing, and the construction industry. But it doesn’t stop there: Industries such as retail, finance, insurance, tourism, transportation, and communications are also crying out for qualified candidates to meet the rapidly changing challenges of the global economy.
