Following a break of several years, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the EIT Digital Master School Graduation Ceremony 2022 will gather graduates of three cohorts in Madrid. Over 650 students from all over the world will gather one more time to celebrate this important milestone in their lives.
The Master School graduates will be inspired by keynotes given by academic and industry leaders from EIT Digital partners. They will also have the opportunity to reunite with old friends from all over the world, share their experiences, and join an alumni network of over 1,600 members worldwide. They will become proud members of a community that boasts the innovation and entrepreneurial talent necessary to build a strong digital Europe.
The EIT Digital Master School students have studied one of the seven technical master school programmes. They have studied at two different top universities in two different countries. During the two-year course, they have completed a work placement as well as a two-week Summer School programme. In total, they may have visited up to five countries in two years. Graduates of the EIT Digital Master School programme will be receiving a double Master's degree coupled with a certificate from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
