The modern labour market is developing at a faster and faster pace, and our need to continuously grow and develop in our professional roles has never been greater. Do you need to update your know-how and competences? Or are you aiming at a leadership position or a job in the field of research and development?
A Master’s degree from a university of applied sciences is suitable for those already involved in the world of work who wish to deepen and broaden their professional skills and work in leadership roles or with change or development tasks.
To be eligible to apply to a Master’s degree programme, you need a suitable Bachelor’s degree followed by at least three years of work experience in the field in question.
In the labour market, a Master’s degree from a university of applied sciences is equal to a Master’s degree from a university. If you have a Master’s degree and wish to continue your academic career, you can apply for licentiate or doctoral studies at university level.
Arcada’s Master’s degree programmes can be completed as either full or part time studies (with the exception of Big Data Analytics, which is only offered as full-time studies). The degree programmes consist of either 60 or 90 ECTS credits, which means that they can be completed in around 1–1½ years as full-time studies or 2–2½ years as part-time studies. Assignments in many courses as well as the Master’s thesis can be tailored to suit your employer’s development needs.
All master's degree programmes offered in English are web-based, but also include lectures, workshops and seminars. Scheduled teaching mainly takes place after 4 pm on weekdays and between 9 am and 5 pm on Saturdays, which makes it possible to study alongside a full-time job. All master's degree programmes offered in Swedish are arranged completely online.
