Who takes this course

Who will join you?

Participants of our Part-time MA Digital Management Programs are taken on a transformative journey to become a new kind of leader – adaptive, collaborative and creatively driven. We help participants go beyond conventional thinking practices to create effective teams and business value.

All participants hold either a bachelor’s degree or have a minimum of 5 years of relevant professional experience.


What you'll be doing

This part-time program is run at our campus in Stockholm, Sweden as well as in London, England. There, you’ll learn with the help of a range of interactive talks, hands-on workshops, team challenges and deep reflection.

This program has six practical group projects led by industry practitioners and one independent research project. You’ll spend 24 weeks at Hyper Island and 20 weeks with an industry partner as part of your research project.


8 areas of study

Foundation Days

Build your team and create a group culture, learn the Hyper Island methodology and develop skills to enhance your creativity.

Creativity Week

Discover idea generation techniques and essential research methods under the guidance of industry coaches.

Design Thinking

Explore design thinking tools and processes, including looking at other related areas such as service design and human-centred design.

Digital Technologies

Recognize digital technologies as enablers for change and grasp the basic concepts involved both from a theoretical and practical hands-on perspective.

Business Transformation

Take an in-depth look at business model development. Work with cutting-edge business modeling techniques, case studies, and user journeys.

Managing Projects and Teams

Explore the project lifecycle and consider projects from a holistic perspective. This module takes place during the entire on-site part of the program and is built on your project and professional work.

Innovation Project

We challenge you to apply all your previous learnings and create your own project which aims to show innovation in the development of new ideas or transformation of existing ideas in an area of digital management.

Industry Research Project

Find a problem in your industry and work to solve it. Instead of the traditional Master’s thesis, you will identify a problem, prototype solutions, and share insights based on your research.

It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. Without the MA, I’d probably still be wondering why things are changing around me instead of being part of them.
