Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Software product management defines how the life cycle of a digital product is managed, planned and governed. Continuous business changes imposed by new technology and the digitalisation of businesses and the society form the environment for modern software development.

The programme combines business with software engineering in modern software platforms and ecosystems.

To start the studies directly with a pre-existing Bachelor's degree, at least 24 ECTS credits in software engineering or related subjects (computer science, information sciences or information technology) are required, but the Bachelor's degree may be from a different field.

The Software Product Management and Business programme from LUT University is well suited for people already in the working world because it mainly utilises blended and hybrid teaching. Contact teaching will be arranged on the Lahti campus on individual days at the end of the week.
