The Warwick Executive Diploma in Digital Leadership

Programme structure

The programme is delivered in four modules, each over four days at WBS London. 

While all of your modules will be taught within a one-year period, submission of your final assessed project and subsequent grading by our academic team can mean that the awarding of your Warwick Executive Diploma may extend beyond one year. Upon successful completion you will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Leadership from the University of Warwick.

Platform Strategy

There is a building interest in platforms and their strategic implications for organisations, and how they are shaping the world we live in. This module will provide you with a broad perspective on platform strategy and highlight its relevance for contemporary organisations.

Learning in London, the financial capital of the world 

Opened in June 2015 on the 17th floor of The Shard, WBS London houses a 100-seat lecture theatre and a smaller one at 80 seats, plus seminar rooms and space to network. In October 2017 we announced that WBS is expanding our London base to include the 13th floor, increasing our footprint at The Shard by 50 per cent.

The Shard is situated next to the London Bridge transport hub so getting to us from anywhere in London, the UK, and international locations, could not be easier.

This is a face-to-face programme, allowing you to benefit from meeting your fellow executives and our teaching team in person.
