The Computer Science: Innovation for Change in a Digital Society programme at Malmö University is a two-year master’s programme that integrates these different disciplines to train future innovation leaders in a digital society.


The Computer Science: Innovation for Change in a Digital Society programme at Malmö University  is relevant for students who have studied computer science as part of their undergraduate degree. Rather than only pursuing advanced skills in computer science, the programme complements students’ prerequisite knowledge with its emphasis on skills in innovation, business, change and sustainability management. The programme focusses on user-centric innovation and change management within new and existing organisations and markets. Graduates of the programme will find job opportunities either as change agents in organisations, as entrepreneurs in the start-up sector, or as researchers in academia.

During the programme, students learn theories and practice within software technologies, innovation, entrepreneurship and digitalisation. There is a specific focus on organisational theory, change and sustainability management, sustainability, and ethics. An overall challenge-based pedagogical approach allows students to work with real-world cases from client organisations as well as their own entrepreneurial projects.

The programme’s four semesters are organised around a series of sequential learning goals, starting with foundational courses during the first semester. The second semester’s theme includes practical courses and opportunities for applying different theories. The third semester focusses on specialisation, offering elective course options in the students’ individual areas of interest. The third semester also includes a research course in preparation for the master’s thesis, which is the focus of the fourth semester.
