Digital Initiative

The Digital Initiative (D/I) seeks to explore and to impact the transformation of business in today’s digital, networked, and media-rich environment. We traverse disciplines, methods, and communities, drawing upon a faculty board from Marketing, Strategy, and TOM; collaborators from still other units; and a diverse group of schol​ars and practitioners beyond the school. We aspire to connect rigorous and collaborative research, innovative teaching, and meaningful engagement. Our aim is to achieve real impact among entrepreneurs and policy makers, innovators and researchers, technologists and technology users around the world.
