Educational & professional objectives

The Digital Transformation University Diploma (DU) aims to train students to take part in the digital transformation of companies. To this end, the program enables students to contribute to projects suggested by our partners: start-ups, SMEs, large companies, authorities and organizations.

Projects are identified by the Université de Lyon among submissions by companies and partners organizations; the Université de Lyon then establishes internship conventions. The team projects focus on the transformation of products, processes and methods.

This hands-on training program is structured around two main teaching units:

  • Unit 1: Courses on digital technologies; courses on digital management specificities;
  • Unit 2: Internship working on a concrete project submitted by a company.

Organization and features of the program

  • Courses entirely in French;
  • A 19-week program (616 hours);
  • A 44-day internship;
  • Teams of 3 students per project;
  • A digital training environment enabling students to access resources and communicate with their project team;
  • A program of professional lectures;
  • A project supervised by two coaches (management and a digital expert);
  • A project follow-up methodology of four cycles.
