Welcome to SDSI online pre-evaluation portal
The joint MA programme “Service Design strategies and innovations” (SDSI) is a new Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree in Northern Europe with a focus on service design, management and leadership.
SDSI is open to candidates who are passionate about service design and aim at becoming the Lead of Service Design. A bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 180 ECTS credits or a second-level professional higher education diploma (LQF/EQF level 6-7) in Arts and Humanities; Social Sciences, Journalism and Information; Business, Administration and Law or Information and Communication Technologies is required to apply. Professional work experience is preferable and might give you a competitive advantage but is not a prerequisite for studying with the SDSI.
Are you our ideal candidate?
We welcome candidates and future leaders who are passionate about service design and aiming at becoming leaders in service design. We value diversity and welcome students from a range of geographical locations, nationalities, and backgrounds.
Our ideal students don’t need to be service design experts. We value candidates who are open-minded and creative, thrive on diverse perspectives, possess problem-solving skills, aim to make a positive societal impact with their knowledge, and exhibit a strategic, critical thinking mindset.
