Create Digital Experiences for Users

Have you ever been triggered by poor user experience? Or when you install a programme and it does not work the way it should? The reviews in the App Store, Play Store, etc. talk about missing or confusing functions, but there are also a lot of satisfied customers that find the app to be a lifesaver.

One of the goals of the “User Experience Management & Design” program is to ensure that your program or app makes it into the group of satisfied customers. You will also learn how to develop a business model that is sustainable in the digital world, as well as other topics that will help you create a successful business model. You will be learning all of this and more by putting theory into practice and working on your own projects.

Study Content

The master’s programme lasts three semesters, in which you acquire the skills to work in companies in the area of user experience, but to also be a product owner or strategic planner in similar fields. You will gain practical knowledge through numerous projects and case studies in each semester. In preparation for the job market, you will not only acquire the needed theoretical knowledge in the field of UX design, but you will also acquire important skills to help you apply this knowledge to practice and learn how to use the relevant tools. In addition, you will be able to oversee projects with different frameworks and work with others to come to a successful product. A scientific-theoretical orientation of the master’s programme is shown in the examination of current research statuses in the lectures, as well as in the preparation of scientific papers.

PFH offers a Master’s Foundation Programme (MFP), which enables students, who otherwise might not have enough study credits to get accepted for the master’s degree in User Experience Management & Design.

With this foundation programme, students acquire the knowledge needed to pursue our master’s degree in User Experience Management & Design. This means that students with no academic background in economics, business or the like can apply for it. It is designed entirely as a distance learning programme, reducing the cost per semester by 50%.
