Be a master of digital media
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.
