Applications now open for EIT Digital Master School, a leader in innovation and entrepreneurship
Applications to the EIT Digital Master School, hosting 8 exceptional European master’s programmes combining top digital education with entrepreneurship training, are now open. Graduates receive two master’s degrees, from two top European technical universities, plus a certificate from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The deadline to apply is 8 February 2024.
EIT Digital students plug into a leading network of digital innovators. You will join a unique, Europe-wide ecosystem of entrepreneurs, companies, researchers, and alumni. During the two-year course of study, you will study at two different universities in two countries, complete a work placement and participate in a two-week summer school programme.
The EIT Digital Master School programme involves a network of 15 different universities in 9 countries, allowing you to live in various parts of Europe.
Because it is an EIT Digital programme, innovation and entrepreneurship are incorporated into education.
“Doing your MSc via EIT Digital not only gives you a master’s degree at the end of your course, it also teaches you independence,” said FinTech graduate Sanya Shoaib. “I got to learn about FinTech, which is my major, and also got the chance to do a minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship.”
Graduates not only gain the knowledge and skills to launch their startups, but the concrete work they undertake with potential employers as part of the curricula, also makes them very attractive for recruiters.
“We had this matchmaking event organised by EIT Digital where I made the contact for the company that I was hired by,” says graduate Michele Marabelli. “There were companies there pitching themselves and the positions they had.”
There are eight different programmes, focused on providing cutting edge, hands-on learning in the most important digital fields today.
Two of the programmes, in cyber security and robotics, are provided as a part of SPECTRO (SPecialised Education programmes in CybersecuriTy and Robotics), an EU collaboration. EIT Digital brings its expertise in developing masters’ programmes to the consortium, which includes 12 higher education institutions from seven countries, two innovative SMEs and a leading research centre.
SPECTRO’s goal is to help ensure a sufficient supply of digital talent in Europe while offering educational accessibility and diversity for students of every gender, age and background. You will obtain cutting-edge skills and be positioned as a future leader in the booming fields of cybersecurity and robotics.
Another new programme offered this year is FinTech for Business, which gives you the skills and technical knowledge needed to succeed in the rapidly changing world of finance – where machine learning, data analytics, and blockchain technology are rewriting what is possible.
