Cloud Computing is the outsourcing of IT resources like servers, storages, network, and services and their provisioning over the Internet. Read more

Cloud Computing is the outsourcing of IT resources like servers, storages, network, and services and their provisioning over the Internet. Its advantages, when compared to self-operated IT resources, are significant cost reductions and increased elasticity, which is due to the fact that the IT resources can be simultaneously and flexibly shared among many customers by the concept of virtualisation.

Thus, more and more companies take advantage of the benefits that cloud can provide, and the demand for cloud professional is booming. According to a study conducted by Deloitte for the EU in 2016, 1.6 million jobs could be created and the formation of 303 000 new businesses, in particular SMEs, is expected.

As a result, knowing how to build applications with cloud-based concepts and technologies and how they work is an essential key skill for a promising and rewarding career.

Why choose Cloud Computing and Services at EIT Digital?

Cloud Computing and Services at EIT Digital Master School combines a technical major on cloud computing at two leading European universities with a minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E).

Part of the technical major is the transfer of knowledge in technology platforms, practical skills, and formal foundations that are needed to understand state-of-the-art cloud solutions to implement distributed software applications on top of them. The programme also focuses on future directions of cloud computing, for example, in the fields of edge and fog computing as well as blockchains and distributed ledger applications respectively.

The technical skills will be extended with a comprehensive understanding of user driven innovation and how to build business models and business cases. Students get the chance to get in contact with Europe’s leading companies and start-ups and conduct an industry-based internship at one of these companies. Successful students receive a degree from both universities they visited during their two-years study as well as a certificate from EIT Digital.

What are the career opportunities?

Graduates qualify for jobs in international and local organisations in both technical and business roles. Typical titles are:

  • Cloud CTO
  • Cloud Software Engineer
  • Lead software Developer
  • Cloud Service Broker
  • Cloud Alliance Manager
  • Cloud Infrastructure Architect
  • Business developer
  • Product manager
  • Consultant

Through their multidisciplinary attitude graduates are valuable in open innovation settings where different aspects (market, users, social aspects, media technologies) come together. They easily find jobs within companies that provide value-added products and services, such as telecom companies, ecommerce providers, e-learning, web developers, and cloud operators. An alternative path would be to start your own company to provide product or technology development, media content, business development or consultancy services.

How is the programme structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programmes follow the same scheme:

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.
  • In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme.
  • The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.

Learn to communicate effectively in an intercultural workplace. Advance your knowledge of language and cultural theory, as well as your business and professional communication skills, in a community of students from all over the world. You’ll even have the chance to spend a semester on a European campus.

Course duration: 12 months full-time or 24 months part-time (September starts); 16 months full-time or 33 months part-time (January starts).

Teaching times

Full time: Semesters 1 and 2: Monday 6-8pm and Thursday 6-8pm

Part time: Semesters 1 and 2: Monday 6-8pm or Thursday 6-8pm (depending on choice of module)

Overview

In our increasingly global world, contact between cultures is of vital economic and sociocultural importance. Our Master’s course will give you the skills and knowledge to build a successful career in an intercultural environment.

You’ll gain an understanding of how cultural differences impact on human interaction in both the workplace and society. With modules that focus on topics like migration, identity and cultural relations, you’ll advance your theoretical knowledge at the same time as improving your business and professional communication skills.

You’ll also learn to use different methodological tools that will help you understand language and communication, as well as sharpen your analytical skills. This will give you the confidence to think independently and innovatively around the interdisciplinary, and often multinational, challenges of the modern world of work.

As a full-time student, you can choose to spend one semester at a European university (the Eurocampus). At the Eurocampus, your studies will be equivalent to those of Cambridge-based students, and you’ll still work in English.

On both our Cambridge campus and the Eurocampus, you’ll be working alongside students from all over the world, including the USA, Canada, Germany, France, China, Japan, Taiwan, Spain, Italy, Finland, Turkey and Lithuania. This will give you additional experience and understanding of intercultural environments to support your academic studies.

See the website http://www.anglia.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/intercultural-communication

Careers

Our MA Intercultural Communication will prepare you for many different roles with international companies, local government and European institutions.

Cloud Computing is the outsourcing of IT resources like servers, storages, network, and services and their provisioning over the Internet. Its advantages, when compared to self-operated IT resources, are significant cost reductions and increased elasticity, which is due to the fact that the IT resources can be simultaneously and flexibly shared among many customers by the concept of virtualisation.

Thus, more and more companies take advantage of the benefits that cloud can provide, and the demand for cloud professional is booming. According to a study conducted by Deloitte for the EU in 2016, 1.6 million jobs could be created and the formation of 303 000 new businesses, in particular SMEs, is expected.

As a result, knowing how to build applications with cloud-based concepts and technologies and how they work is an essential key skill for a promising and rewarding career.

Why choose Cloud Computing and Services at EIT Digital?

Cloud Computing and Services at EIT Digital Master School combines a technical major on cloud computing at two leading European universities with a minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E).

Part of the technical major is the transfer of knowledge in technology platforms, practical skills, and formal foundations that are needed to understand state-of-the-art cloud solutions to implement distributed software applications on top of them. The programme also focuses on future directions of cloud computing, for example, in the fields of edge and fog computing as well as blockchains and distributed ledger applications respectively.

The technical skills will be extended with a comprehensive understanding of user driven innovation and how to build business models and business cases. Students get the chance to get in contact with Europe’s leading companies and start-ups and conduct an industry-based internship at one of these companies. Successful students receive a degree from both universities they visited during their two-years study as well as a certificate from EIT Digital.

What are the career opportunities?

Graduates qualify for jobs in international and local organisations in both technical and business roles. Typical titles are:

  • Cloud CTO
  • Cloud Software Engineer
  • Lead software Developer
  • Cloud Service Broker
  • Cloud Alliance Manager
  • Cloud Infrastructure Architect
  • Business developer
  • Product manager
  • Consultant

Through their multidisciplinary attitude graduates are valuable in open innovation settings where different aspects (market, users, social aspects, media technologies) come together. They easily find jobs within companies that provide value-added products and services, such as telecom companies, ecommerce providers, e-learning, web developers, and cloud operators. An alternative path would be to start your own company to provide product or technology development, media content, business development or consultancy services.

How is the programme structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programmes follow the same scheme:

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.
  • In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme.
  • The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.

Cloud Computing is the outsourcing of IT resources like servers, storages, network, and services and their provisioning over the Internet. Its advantages, when compared to self-operated IT resources, are significant cost reductions and increased elasticity, which is due to the fact that the IT resources can be simultaneously and flexibly shared among many customers by the concept of virtualisation.

Thus, more and more companies take advantage of the benefits that cloud can provide, and the demand for cloud professional is booming. According to a study conducted by Deloitte for the EU in 2016, 1.6 million jobs could be created and the formation of 303 000 new businesses, in particular SMEs, is expected.

As a result, knowing how to build applications with cloud-based concepts and technologies and how they work is an essential key skill for a promising and rewarding career.

Why choose Cloud Computing and Services at EIT Digital?

Cloud Computing and Services at EIT Digital Master School combines a technical major on cloud computing at two leading European universities with a minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E).

Part of the technical major is the transfer of knowledge in technology platforms, practical skills, and formal foundations that are needed to understand state-of-the-art cloud solutions to implement distributed software applications on top of them. The programme also focuses on future directions of cloud computing, for example, in the fields of edge and fog computing as well as blockchains and distributed ledger applications respectively.

The technical skills will be extended with a comprehensive understanding of user driven innovation and how to build business models and business cases. Students get the chance to get in contact with Europe’s leading companies and start-ups and conduct an industry-based internship at one of these companies. Successful students receive a degree from both universities they visited during their two-years study as well as a certificate from EIT Digital.

What are the career opportunities?

Graduates qualify for jobs in international and local organisations in both technical and business roles. Typical titles are:

  • Cloud CTO
  • Cloud Software Engineer
  • Lead software Developer
  • Cloud Service Broker
  • Cloud Alliance Manager
  • Cloud Infrastructure Architect
  • Business developer
  • Product manager
  • Consultant

Through their multidisciplinary attitude graduates are valuable in open innovation settings where different aspects (market, users, social aspects, media technologies) come together. They easily find jobs within companies that provide value-added products and services, such as telecom companies, ecommerce providers, e-learning, web developers, and cloud operators. An alternative path would be to start your own company to provide product or technology development, media content, business development or consultancy services.

How is the programme structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programmes follow the same scheme:

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.
  • In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme.
  • The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.
