Programme structure

The EIT Digital Master's Education is a two-year full-time education, created for you and coordinated by the EIT Digital Master School Office, the central administrative body, located in Stockholm, Sweden. Admission to the programme, summer activities, and general student counselling will be handled there.

  1. The first year is the entry year and starts with basic courses to lay the foundation for the ICT specialisation. You will be introduced to the basics of business and management.
  2. During the second semester you will combine a design project with business development exercise, where you learn how to turn technology into business and how to write a business plan.
  3. In between the first and second year, a summer school will address business opportunities within a societal relevant theme.
  4. The second year is the exit year and offers a specialisation and a graduation project.
  5. The graduation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and will result in a MSc thesis.


In your master's education you will earn two degrees and the EIT ICT Labs certificate.
Double Degrees
Two officially recognised Master of Science Degrees are awarded to you upon completion of your two-year education. One is issued by the entry university and one by the exit university. All involved universities are recognised degree awarding institutions. Your EIT DigitalTechnical Programme and the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Minor are the base of your double degree.
EIT ICT Labs Certificate
When you graduate from the master's education, you will receive an EIT DigitalMaster's Certificate signed by representatives of the degree issuing universities and EIT Digital. The EIT Digital Master's Certificate is based on the two degrees, and summarises the EIT Label and EIT Digital Master School specific characteristics of the education.

Master's Thesis

As your final degree project, you will write a master's thesis, in English, according to the rules and regulations of your exit point university. The thesis should be based on your internship with an EIT Digital business partner, and it will be supervised by your university and the business partner. Maybe your thesis project is the next technical revolution?


Summer Programme

You will enjoy our Summer Programme as part of the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Minor, a two week event that has around 50 participants from all over Europe. The added value of the Summer Programme is to exercise a business development process in the context of a thematic area, and to offer plenty opportunity of interaction for students among themselves, but also with other stakeholders such as companies, business consultants, market research experts, technology experts, users, etc.


Our Online-Community makes it easy to find fellow students and information regarding the universities, the master's education and everything else. (i.e. accommodations, life on campus, the city, visa and residence permits, useful addresses and phone numbers or a direct link to the student counsellors).

Student Life


There are fun activities organised at each Co-Location Centre by EIT ICT Labs, the universities and initiatives supported by EIT Digital.

  • For example, the Entrepreneurs Club creates a platform for pitching business concepts to venture capitalists with a particular focus on your technical programme. It provides opportunities for you to network between entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
  • Each year the KICs (Knowledge and Innovation Communities) are organising several cross-node networking events with keynotes from internationally successful serial entrepreneurs.
  • Other game-show-like events are organised to provide the opportunity to you to present your business concept before an international audience of partners and organisations.
