With the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen universities worldwide having to pivot quickly to transform their education delivery to an online environment, as well as conduct their business operations virtually and remotely. For the universities who embraced digital transformation, they were able to adapt quickly to this new learning environment. Many others were not as successful. Part of the formula for success is for universities and other institutions of higher education to apply digital transformation technologies, processes, and leadership in this “new normal”.

Looking towards the future, how should universities and colleges prepare for survival? dr Jay Liebowitz and his colleagues, some of the leading authorities on the subject worldwide, provide some of the key answers and insights in Digital Transformation for the University of the Future.

Targeted at administrative and faculty staff, and students at institutes of higher learning, the inaugural volume of the new World Scientific book series, Digital Transformation: Accelerating Organizational Intelligence highlights what is needed in for digital transformation in terms of technologies, processes, culture, and leadership considerations.

Digital Transformation for the University of the Future retails for US$98 / £85 (hardcover) and is also available in electronic formats. To order or know more about the book and editor, visit http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/12773.
