Digital Management (M.A.)
Master's programme at Hyper Island Manchester
What is Hyper Island?
Hyper Island Manchester is a Business and Design School focussed on design thinking, managing projects and teams, digital technology and business transformation. Its real-world-ready approach, its adoption of latest trends and techniques as well as its strong worldwide network gained Hyper Island the nickname "digital Harvard".
What makes Hyper Island special?
Rather than following the orthodox and theoretical lecture methodology of other universities, Hyper Island practices experiential learning with an absolute focus on solving real-world problems.
Therefore, Hyper Island students are not being taught by professors, but work together with industry speakers (even TED talkers) who share their latest experience and knowledge from working in prestigious businesses and NGOs.
