Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Uber, Airbnb.... all have something in common. They operate on digital platform business models. 

Digital platform business models are constantly changing, never static. The rules of doing business are radically different from the ones used by traditional businesses. As most platforms run on asset-light business models, they can scale businesses at an unprecedented pace, and in just a few years, many industries have been reshaped by the emergence of digital platforms. More than ever, it is a necessity for executives to understand the fundamentals of platform thinking, and this class preview aims at shedding light on this new model of doing business in the digital age.

This will also be an opportunity for you to learn more about the curriculum, program structure, admission process, and scholarships offered in the ESSEC & Mannheim EMBA Asia-Pacific program.
