What our alumni think of the program
“The last thing that I had expected during the last year was to meet and bond with such an amazing group of people from all around the world. The support and motivation that we shared with each other was an absolute must to get through this year. I wouldn’t have thought that bringing people with the same objectives together in London for just 3 days a month could bring such powerful results!This course has taken me outside of my comfort zone constantly in every module and has taught me how to deal with the fast-changing digital world in my professional life.”

“What I really liked about Hyper Island was being in a constant feedback loop. Learning new, going to work, applying it, and then going back to studying and exploring. It was a constant input of new ideas with the ability to apply them directly. I really liked this aspect and it was a good decision for me to study part-time at Hyper Island. It is an amazing luxury to be in a group like this. We share so much inspiration, coaching and knowledge together.”
