Digital Business School is a training project of the digital agency dotSource in cooperation with e-commerce institutions and associations, including the bevh (the Federal Association of German E-Commerce and Mail Order Business) and ECC Cologne.
Thanks to this cooperation and the close collaboration in terms of concept creation and the development of content and methodology for the seminars, our training courses meet both a high practice-oriented and scientific standard.
Digital Business School (DBS) was launched in 2015 together with Steinbeis Technology Group (part of Steinbeis University Berlin) in order to offer training courses in the field of e-commerce and digitalisation to professionals and executives from B2B and B2C, enabling them to meet the challenges of digital transformation with qualified employees.
At Digital Business School, you can complete the »E-Commerce Manager« and »Digital Transformation Architect« certification courses. We also support you in the concept creation and implementation of individual training formats.
dotSource, that’s over 300 digital natives with one mission: designing digital customer relations. Our work rises from the connection of humankind, space, and technology.
We’ve been supporting businesses in their digital transformations since 2006. Whether it is e-commerce and content platforms, customer relationship and product data management, or digital marketing and artificial intelligence: our solutions are user-oriented, emotional, targeted, and intelligent.
We see ourselves as a partner of our clients, whose special requirements and needs flow into the project straight from the first idea.
From strategy consultation and system selection, to branding, concept creation, UX design and conversion optimisation to operation in the cloud – together we develop and implement scalable digital products. Our approach relies on new work and agile methodologies such as scrum and design thinking. Companies like Esprit, EMP, BayWa, Axel Springer, hagebau, C.H.Beck, Würth and STABILO trust in our competence.
With our blog Handelskraft.com, annual Trend Book, and Handelskraft Conference, we network industry knowledge and provide insight into current opportunities and developments of digital brand management.
In order to comprehensively prepare professionals and executives for the entrepreneurial challenges of the digital world, we launched Digital Business School together with Steinbeis Technology Group in 2015.
With our groundbreaking solutions, we have been able to establish ourselves as one of the leading digital agencies in German-speaking Europe and are now among the top 10 largest companies in the industry.
Digital Business School is headquartered in Jena, Thuringia. The majority of its training courses and seminars take place there. It can be seen from afar that Jena is closely linked to the topics of digitalisation and e-commerce: not only is the JenTower the tallest office building in the new federal states of Germany, but it is also home to the e-commerce solution Intershop – the world’s first e-commerce software.
In addition, the city with a population of just under 110,000 people is well-known for the international success stories of Zeiss, SCHOTT and Jenoptik. Jena is home to international corporations, but also to numerous small and medium-sized enterprises.
It has a lot to offer in terms of culture, sport and nature, too.
The rooftop terrace of Digital Business School is a wonderful place to enjoy the »Kulturarena« summer festival. Digital Business School participants can also look forward to a visit to the pub district called »Wagnergasse«. To round off the day perfectly, it is worth taking a stroll through Jena’s Paradiespark, which lives up to its name with lots of greenery, the Saale River, the »Strand 22« bar and volleyball courts.
