Master's Programme in Software Product Management and Business

Software product management is an integral part of software development.

Software product management defines how the life cycle of a digital product is managed, planned and governed. Continuous business change, imposed by new technology and the digitalisation of businesses and the society, forms the environment for modern software development.

The Master's Programme in Software Product Management and Business focuses on the design, implementation and maintenance of software and digital services in their business context. The programme combines business with software engineering in modern software platforms and ecosystems.

The Master's programme builds on the Bachelor's Programme in Software Engineering and aims to develop professional skills towards understanding complex software-intensive business environments and long-term management aspects of software engineering.

To start the studies directly with a pre-existing Bachelor's degree, at least 24 ECTS credits in software engineering or related subjects (computer science, information sciences or information technology) are required, but the Bachelor's degree may be from a different field.

The programme is well suited for people already in the working world because its teaching mainly consists of intensive periods on Fridays and Saturdays.
