Master in Digital Business & Innovation

The Program

In most top schools, business and tech education happen in silos. Management students touch on IT and digital, but don’t get the deeper knowledge and hands-on tech experience necessary to jumpstart a real tech-centered career. And likewise, tech students in computer science and engineering don’t learn the fundamentals of business innovation. This is why HST – a school integrally linked to the business workplace – has handcrafted this degree.

It’s a unique program designed to train professionals who are both business-savvy tech experts and at the same time tech-savvy business innovators. Are you ready?
