Study Digital Arts at LYS

“The digital age is expanding into all areas of our lives, and it is not just those who work in IT that will need to be alert to the digital transformation. The digital skills gap is real. Already 90% of future jobs require some level of digital literacy”. Mariya Gabriel, EU Commissioner for the Digital Economy & Society
