Department of Digitalization

About DIGI:

The Department of ITM, now known as Department of Digitalization, was formed by merging the Department of Informatics and the Centre for Applied ICT in 2011. Previously, it focused more on developing IT and improve the efficiency of organisational processes by means of IT. Six years later it changed its name into the Department of digitalization (DIGI) and is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. It conducts research in and teaches the digital transformation of the business community and the economy. The new name accentuates CBS' commitment to find technological and business solutions to ensure that digitalization will benefit society. DIGI organizes its research so it can create opportunities for collaboration and keep up with fast innovation typical for the IT field.

International acknowledgement for IT research quality

Through the past years, CBS' research has been published in the eight most trendsetting academic journals in the cross field between IT and business. The number of publications in the so-called Basket-of-Eight journals have surpassed many other universities. In the latest ranking, the "Top Rankings of Schools in Bo8 journals", which covers the past three years, CBS is number one in Europe and number 15 in the world.

The department’s goal is to create a context where researchers can realize their potential in a supportive and conducive environment with a set of common values, aspirations and directions. This is achieved by building a work environment – where the best academics thrive – which is founded on mutual trust and respect. With this placement, CBS tops competing research environments in Europe. These great results have been achieved through collaboration in strong research teams with the dedicated and ambitious researchers of the department and a targeted effort in recruiting the best international researchers.
