The master’s program
In your first year, you gain an in-depth understanding of how the markets for digital products and businesses work. How are digital companies set up? How do digital business models work? And how are new information systems designed and prototyped? You will learn to develop strategies for digital enterprises and create digital value for society.
In your second year, you have the opportunity to specialize by choosing from various projects and electives. You can choose between a research lab (the foundation for an academic career path) or an industry lab (in cooperation with our corporate partners) and kick off your career as a digital innovator.
