The MA in Digital Management will give you the skills and knowledge you need to drive change in a digital world. You will study whilst working and apply the insights and learnings to develop disruptive business solutions.
Learn how to kickstart digital innovation, build effective teams, manage complex tech-driven projects, and transform businesses.
This university accredited program is designed and delivered in close partnership with industry experts.
Enhance your skills
You'll learn how to apply design thinking to solve problems, how to harness emerging digital technologies, how to transform existing businesses, and how to manage innovation processes.
Make better decisions
You'll collaborate with peers and professionals on real business challenges in a range of practical projects. That will help you to develop the skills that leaders need to make good strategic decisions.
Study whilst working
You'll apply the things you learn directly in your business or organisation. This Part-Time program is designed to meet the time pressures and learning needs of busy professionals.
What you’ll learn
The program has five practical group projects, and one independent research project. Industry experts lead the practical projects. You will learn through a range of interactive talks, hands-on workshops, team challenges, and deep reflection.
The average time commitment is 1.5 days per week which will include campus days in London, independent work, and research in your workplace.
Build your team and create a group culture, learn the Hyper Island methodology and develop skills to enhance your creativity.
Explore Design Thinking tools and processes, and dig into related areas like service design and human-centered design to solve complex problems.
Understand the power of emerging digital technologies through theoretical discussions and hands-on workshops.
Work with business development using cutting edge business modeling techniques, case studies, and user journeys.
Managing Projects and Teams
Navigate your way through complex agile processes and understand human behavior in teams.
Apply all your previous learnings to create your own innovative project. You'll research, develop, and test new ideas, or transform existing ones, in an area of your choice.
Industry Research Project
Find a problem in your industry and work to solve it. In place of the traditional Masters thesis you will identify a problem, prototype solutions, and share insights based on your research.
Learn by doing
We challenge you to grow personally and professionally by introducing new ways of thinking and learning. Our methodology focuses on the 'process' of education just as much as the 'content', and we use that approach to build powerful learning experiences.
Study whilst working
Combine learning in school with learning at work. You'll spend campus days in London, combined with research and tasks in your business and at home. All the time supported and inspired by Hyper Island programme leaders.
Solve real challenges
Focus on design and entrepreneurial challenges to develop and test the products and services of the future. You'll work individually and in teams on real briefs set by real clients.
Intense, useful, fun. A lot of listening, reading, discussing and thinking - tons of insights - and great new friends who are both smart and fantastic to work with!
