Master's programmes

Our society has a great need for people who can connect thinking and acting. To immediately test the feasibility of a new idea, for example. Master's programmes at Saxion focus on this connecting function. An extra degree, lasting one to two years. Would you like to deepen your knowledge and skills after obtaining your bachelor's degree? Or looking to boost your professional career? Saxion offers several international master's programmes that link theory and practice together. 

About our master's programmes

We train young professionals to start their careers from an excellent position and working professionals to deepen their knowledge and skills. At our University of Applied Sciences, master's programmes are practice-oriented. You are involved in both exploring new possibilities and making them applicable. That is the big difference with the purely theoretical, Research University master's. After completing your professional master's at Saxion, you will obtain an internationally recognised degree as a MA, MBA or MSc, just like with a university master's degree.

A master's degree expands your horizons. Every master's student has his or her own motivation for taking an extra course of study. To name a few:

  • Your extensive expertise makes you a specialist in your field.
  • You play a key role by exploring and realising improvements (to an existing service, product or process, possibly within your own organisation).
  • You get to know yourself and your key qualities better; ready to claim your position within an organisation.

Learn here what's the difference between an applied master's degree and an academic master's degree.

As a University of Applied Sciences, we want to deliver professionals who are ready for the rapidly changing world. Our education is closely related to this. 

Even during your master's you'll be working with people from the business and research world. You'll exchange ideas about the impact of innovations in your field. You'll explore the meaning of your profession for society or, for example, the role of people in a technological world. 

If you have a completed bachelor's degree, you can take a master's degree. This bachelor's has to be connected to the field of study of the master's. For a number of master's, you first need work experience before you can start with the master's. So if you already work in a certain field and you want to deepen your knowledge, you can take a part-time master's course in addition to your work. In this way, you can directly apply what you have learned in practice.
