Deadline for applications to studies at SDSI extended to June 30, 2021!

SDSI students will learn best service design practices in collaboration with industry and local communities, and are ensured high employability prospects in the future. According to the World Bank, over the past few decades, the service sector has become the largest component of the economy in the EU, currently accounting for 70% of GDP and generating 90% of jobs in the region. Technological innovations enable us to transform existing services and develop new ones that were previously unimaginable. As opposed to products, services are intangible and cannot be owned or stored. Services are provided over time, with their provision and consumption often occurring simultaneously. Characterised by interaction touchpoints that are informed by the behaviours and experiences of users and service providers, quality control and innovation management remain challenging to service organisations. From this perspective, the SDSI consortium of higher education institutions offers the all new Joint Master’s degree programme, Service Design Strategies and Innovations, that has been established jointly by the Art Academy of Latvia, the Estonian Art Academy, the University of Lapland in Finland, as well as the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga.
