The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - SINGAPORE EDUCATION -

HY­PER Is­land In­sti­tute of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion, Sin­ga­pore, has launched its Mas­ter of Arts in Dig­i­tal Me­dia Man­age­ment pro­gramme for 2014 and 2015. The launch is part of a global ini­tia­tive to col­lab­o­rate with the dig­i­tal busi­ness sec­tors to ed­u­cate to­mor­row’s dig­i­tal busi­ness lead­ers. It is de­signed in part­ner­ship with and ac­cred­ited by Teesside Univer­sity, UK Univer­sity of the Year 2009.

The MA pro­gramme will lever­age on Hy­per Is­land’s world-class net­work of in­dus­try ex­perts as well as its highly re­garded in­dus­try part­ners around the world.

Par­tic­i­pants will be chal­lenged to tackle real world client prob­lems and will re­search, cre­ate and eval­u­ate tan­gi­ble so­lu­tions to client briefs. Group projects will work hand in hand with in­di­vid­ual as­sign­ments to en­hance and demon­strate ac­quired skills and in­sights. It is de­signed on three pil­lars to help the next gen­er­a­tion of vi­sion­ary dig­i­tal lead­ers shape and em­pha­sise their tal­ents:

A unique cut­ting-edge cur­ricu­lum com­pris­ing projects that fo­cus on De­sign Think­ing, Tech­nol­ogy and Data, Strat­egy and In­no­va­tion, Start Up Think­ing, Project Man­age­ment, Lead­er­ship and Group Dy­nam­ics, Dig­i­tal De­vel­op­ment and Tech­nolo­gies.

A pan-Asian core with global reach.

A strong net­work of in­dus­try




part­ners, in­dus­try ex­perts, and alumni un­der­tak­ing dig­i­tal busi­ness chal­lenges in Asia and around the world.

The MA pro­gramme com­prises five cour­ses of study (or learn­ing projects) and an ad­vanced re­search project. Par­tic­i­pants will have ac­cess to top class re­sources and aca­demic aids in com­plet­ing their stud­ies.

“We’re ex­cited about launch­ing this pro­gramme in Sin­ga­pore. Sin­ga­pore is well-po­si­tioned to of­fer a truly pan-Asian ed­u­ca­tion in the Asia Pa­cific re­gion.

“Our method­ol­ogy, in­dus­try col­lab­o­ra­tion and ex­plo­rative learn­ing meth­ods that we em­ploy in all our pro­grammes will of­fer our stu­dents cut­ting-edge per­spec­tives to un­der­stand­ing the is­sues and chal­lenges af­fect­ing the dig­i­tal busi­ness sec­tor in Asia,” said Hy­per Is­land In­sti­tute of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Christina An­der­s­son.

The Mas­ter of Arts in Dig­i­tal Me­dia Man­age­ment will be of­fered in full-time and part-time modes of study.

The full-time pro­gramme will run for 12 months with ad­mis­sion dates in April 2014 and Jan­uary 2015. It is open to Sin­ga­pore cit­i­zens, per­ma­nent res­i­dents and in­ter­na­tional ap­pli­cants.

The part-time pro­gramme will run for 15 months with ad­mis­sion dates in Septem­ber 2014. It is de­signed for ap­pli­cants who wish to pur­sue their stud­ies with­out hav­ing to stop work, or com­pro­mise on their work sched­ules. It is open to Sin­ga­pore Cit­i­zens, Per­ma­nent Res­i­dents and Work Per­mit/ Em­ploy­ment Pass Hold­ers.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are now open. Ap­pli­cants are re­quired to have a good un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree or a di­ploma with min­i­mum five years rel­e­vant work ex­pe­ri­ence. Ap­pli­cants are also ex­pected to have at­tained flu­ency in English.
