The goal of the DDVE Master’s Program is to teach as efficiently and practically as possible. The whole study time is packed into compact weekend sessions giving students a chance to work while studying. Compared to a regular university where practical activities are preceded by several years of theoretical study, DDVE’s program consists of different product development projects. All students work in teams. Theoretical lectures and seminars are there to support the practice.
Studying takes place at weekends – three weekends at school, one free. Altogether, there are 12 weekend sessions in one semester.

⋆ Project-based studying
Thus, our Master’s Program consists of a series of product development projects forming an initial idea into a thoroughly researched, presentable prototype. The projects are guided by experienced industry professionals. In the beginning, projects are shorter and unconstrained, later they are longer and deal with actual problems of existing companies and NPOs.
