Learning Sprints - DBU

Further education is the biggest challenge of digitalization

Digitally competent employees are the key to a successful digital transformation. Technological progress is rapidly changing the nature as well as content of work and the skills required for it.

What are Learning Sprints?

Learning Sprints are short digital learning units (max. 15 hours) on current topics such as "Digital Basics", "Digital Tools", "Agile Project Management", "Digital Leadership" or "Digital Finance". Learning Sprints are 100% digital and offer various formats (video, gamification, case studies) and motivating didactics. Each of our Learning Sprints can be individually adapted and tailored to customer needs. Graduates receive a badge or an academic certificate (combination of several badges).

Who are Learning Sprints for?

Learning Sprints are suited for all employees, from doorman to CEO. They are especially suited to teach basic digital skills to large groups of employees in a cost effective manner.

How can Learning Sprints and study contents of DBU be customized according to companies’ needs?

The DBU has its own production team of e-learning and media designers who can easily customize or expand existing course offerings in cooperation with a company and our professors. Usually, additional "learning nuggets" (short digital learning contents) such as learning videos, case studies or interviews with company representatives are created in a time and cost efficient manner and integrated into the existing learning sprints and study contents.

Are further education programs at the DBU really purely digital?

All DBU Learning Sprints are basically purely digital, but can be supplemented by classroom training at the DBU or at companies' premises as required. The DBU can also take over the organization of a "kick-off" and "closing event" (digital or physical) or the creation of accompanying communication measures. All services are subject to additional costs depending on the amount of work involved.

Is DBU officially recognized?

The DBU Digital Business University of Applied Sciences was officially recognized by the Berlin Senatskanzlei Wissenschaft und Forschung in November 2019. Its degrees are thus internationally valid.

The Learning Sprints for all employees are only one format of DBU. For more information on our study courses please click here:
