Overview

Disruption is the watchword for today’s business leaders, who face the threat of changing consumer behaviour on one hand, and competition from agile, innovative startups on the other. The businesses that will win in this environment are those that respond to these challenges, swiftly and with great agility.

Jointly presented by SMU Academy and Alibaba Cloud, the new SMU-Alibaba Series features courses that will focus on the latest trends and digital strategies in industries such as new retail, finance, logistics, manufacturing, etc. and provides insights into applicable technologies and digital strategies that integrate seamless customer experience from online to offline. 

These courses will also feature the use of emerging technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence and blockchain which can help transform business models into the smart business models and provide participants with insights into the best practices and digital strategies successfully adopted by businesses that have allowed them to both preserve their core business and compete in new markets.
