Digital Business Accelerator
The Digital Business Accelerator (DBA) is a high-quality program designed to develop data-driven business professionals. This training will propel career starters on the route to the boardroom.
Over 12 months, apprentices uncover the inner workings of successful companies, from understanding the business fundamentals to navigating data in organizations, project management and personal development.
Every month, apprentices dive into a masterclass. These sessions allow everybody to come together to learn, collaborate, grow their confidence and networks. In between masterclasses, apprentices apply and refine their new skills while making an impact at work, with regular opportunities to reflect with their industry-expert coach.
As apprentices progress, they build up a personal portfolio before testing everything they’ve learned with a real-world project.
