Degree structure and studies

The Master's Programme in Software Product Management and Business is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.

The programme is arranged at LUT's Lahti campus, and it combines lectured courses with online learning assignments.

The programme includes core, specialisation, minor, language and elective studies.

Core studies (31 ECTS credits) include courses on software engineering models and methods, requirements engineering, running a software project, and research design methods.

Specialisation studies (65 ECTS credits) include courses on software product management, software business processes, software innovation and software portfolio management.

The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialisation studies. The thesis is an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. Students complete it during their fourth semester.

Minor studies (24 ECTS credits) may be selected based on your experience, prior studies and areas of interest from the LUT minor studies portfolio, but industrial engineering and management, business analytics or international business and management are recommended especially.

Elective studies may also be selected from any disciplines at LUT to complement your studies.
