We usually describe this as that you will be able to draw the map of what the future business landscape will look like, decide on a destination on that map and learn how to get to a desired destination. This includes understanding the impact of new technologies and how it can transform existing markets and industries, as well as creating new, general innovation and entrepreneurship tools, methods and skills (design thinking, business modeling, funding etc.) as well as marketing strategy. These are essential skills when working with tech driven transformation within an existing organization or when creating a new venture based on a new emerging technology.
