The number of persistent connections to the Internet has been consistently increasing for the last 25 years evolving the digital ecosystem from a linear value chain into a new complex value ecosystem, a new configuration integrating different industries. As Artificial Intelligence (AI) enters into action, digital density growth accelerates and learning processes of smart connections create new exponentially and a tremendous acceleration of the digital transformation. A key question in this juncture is the role that different enabling actors (telcos, OTTs, vendors, etc.) in the digital ecosystem will choose to play. These choices will transform their own business models and will create new ones.


Digital disruption, emerging technologies, information systems and the digital mindset are core and critical elements of every MBA and Executive Education program that we offer at IESE, from MBA core courses and electives to Focused Programs to Custom Programs. Our research activities and output are dynamic, keeping pace with change in the digital era.
