ESCP Europe prepares managers for Fourth Industrial Revolution

Posted on 22 Mar 2017 by The Manufacturer

ESCP Europe Business School has announced the launch of its Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation and Digital Transformation (EMMA).

The ESCP Europe Business School Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation and Digital Transformation (EMMA) starts on 27 March, 2017 at its Turin campus.

It has been diligently organised for each participant to experience a personalised and innovative programme that is exclusively relevant to executives, who want to be part of the next industrial revolution, commonly referred to as Industry 4.0 or the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

EMMA is an advanced course designed to offer managers and senior professionals a new way to lead in the “Factory of the Future”, providing the right skills and mind-set to think strategically and lead technological and organisational disruptions.

Disruptive technologies are changing the way we do business while the models keep changing and adapting according to the current demands in the industry. This includes the management dynamics and interactions when dealing with operational technologies and systems.

The “Factory of the Future” indeed begins outside the factory, as new technologies allow faster and smarter virtual prototyping allowing better product designs, which are co-designed together with customers, and personalised to individual specifications and needs at the same cost as mass-production; as well as products that can communicate via sensors across the entire supply chain and throughout their entire lifecycle.

Academic Director, Giovanni Scarso-Borioli said: “In a world where the CEOs of some of the largest global organisations are technology gurus themselves, there is increasing market demand both for managers to develop technological know-how, as well for engineers to grow their management and leadership skills.

“This is why we have created the Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation and Digital Transformation (EMMA). These days, advances in digital technology are exponentially increasing opportunities for innovation.”

The leaders of the manufacturing companies of the future will need to embrace and understand technology much more. New trends suggest that technology is a necessary skill to run large corporations and keep up with the rapid pace of change. For this reason alone, manufacturers will need to prepare today for the inevitable digital transformation of tomorrow.
