What you’ll learn

The program has five practical group projects, and one independent research project. Industry experts lead the practical projects. You will learn through a range of interactive talks, hands-on workshops, team challenges, and deep reflection.

The average time commitment is 1.5 days per week which will include campus days at our Stockholm campus, independent work, and research in your workplace.

Business Transformation

Work with business development using cutting edge business modeling techniques, case studies, and user journeys.

Innovation Project

Apply all your previous learnings to create your own innovative project. You'll research, develop, and test new ideas, or transform existing ones, in an area of your choice.

Industry Research Project

Learn by doing

We challenge you to grow personally and professionally by introducing new ways of thinking and learning. Our methodology focuses on the 'process' of education just as much as the 'content', and we use that approach to build powerful learning experiences.

Study whilst working

Combine learning in school with learning at work. You'll spend campus days in Stockholm, combined with research and tasks in your business and at home. All the time supported and inspired by Hyper Island programme leaders.

Solve real challenges

Focus on design and entrepreneurial challenges to develop and test the products and services of the future. You'll work individually and in teams on real briefs set by real clients.
