About the Course

Digital business models are disrupting 50-year old companies in telecommunications, transportation, advertising, e-commerce, automotive, insurance and many other industries. This course will explore the business models of software disruptors of the west such as Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon, and the east such as Xiaomi and weChat. The class uses a structured framework for analysing business models with numerous examples so that students can apply it to their own business or case study. We will explore how software developers are not just the innovators but also the decision makers in modern competitive battles from mobile to cloud, and from consumer goods to enterprise software. And we will also explain how developers are the engine of digital business models, using examples from diverse industries – from healthcare to aviation....

A good overview of how businesses can leverage on digital tools. Too bad I could not afford to purchase the certificate as of the moment so I have to settle with auditing this course for now.

Definitely changed my outlook.

Assignments are very good to involve you even further and foster the knowledge. But they made me stuck and did not let me to move on for weeks together.

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was not only insightful but also challenged me to do more in-depth research about digital business models and ways I can contribute to transforming traditional business models. The practical examples were great, I was introduced to so many companies that I have never heard about before. My only reason for a 4-star rating is, I wish there was another component to the course where I could create a project around digital business models. Overall, really great course!

I was familiar with similar content from a book on platforms. However, Week3 and Week4 were complete new and enlightening see how the role and value of "the developer" as evolved to decision maker versus a "low level grunt coder." I am a developer with ideas.

learnt nothing, course instructions are inconsistent, videos teach next to nothing. If you're looking to learn about digital business models look elsewhere. If you want to be aware of the fact that developers are important for digital business models, then you'll learn that from 30 seconds of one of the videos... a true waste of money...

My first forray into digital business and I was absolutely thrilled to learn basically the history of the big movers in this area and the very clear model structure that can apply to any industry or business you are currently involved in. This course inspired me to take more courses in Digital Marketing, Innovation and E-Commerce so i recommend it highly to anyone looking to start their education in this fascinating area. The videos were great, using real examples and case studies. Word of caution, while it is entry level, beware: you will have to work and study to pass the quizzes but I loved that it kept me from moving forward before I demonstrated a degree of understanding needed to move on. Also the essays, while 500 words definitely help you to solidify your understanding and you cannot explain what you do not know -so again it was excellent reinforcement and humbling as some of my peers wrote far better papers than I did !

The course is delivered at a great pace. No lengthy videos, the concepts are succint and lecturer use assignments to reinforce the concepts. The length of the assignments is also well thought through, not too time consuming yet offering sufficient practice for the learner. Overall interesting course.

This is a very poor course. Author claimed his course to be about the 'Digital Business Models". Though in reality this material is focused solely on software developers and their role in building digital business models. If you were looking for a structured course on this subject I would recommend to look for another course.

Demonstrates how Internet companies are adapting to the current business environment and placing their product and services to create a lucrative business model.

Well, explained scenarios and examples used to showcase different strategy taken up by Google, Facebook, Apple etc...

A recommended courses if one wants to know how Google and Whatsapp etc are making money. Interesting topic to learn.

A very good starting point for beginners to learn about Digital Business models. Assignments are excellent, make you think, research and find more about each topic. An excellent way to learn more about companies, their business models and how they operate. Course is made for all categories of students, easy to understand and easy to connect.

For a long time, I had been wondering how digital businesses work, how they create value, hence how they monetize their values. The answer came through this course, which operated as a catalyst, to give me a clear view of how digital businesses in practice work, which was really very useful!

I learnt many things from this course. I am from a backward country there so is no high-quality education. I am surprised to see the level of education they are providing. I have not experienced such kind of mentor before and I thank Mr andreau that he has shared the knowledge with us.

Excellent course of very good quality, only that the Spanish speaking people, Latin Americans and South Americans would appreciate if they were so gentle to translate your prestigious courses into the English language .
