About

The Master's Programme in Software Product Management and Business from LUT University  focuses on the design, implementation and maintenance of software and digital services in their business context. The programme combines business with software engineering in modern software platforms and ecosystems.

Overview

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