Due to the high interest, the only Erasmus Mundus Joint master's program in service design - Service Design Strategies and Innovations (SDSI) - has started accepting applications for study year 2023/2024. It is planned to admit 30 students from all over the world. All the candidates are able to submit their applications starting from now till February 28, 2023.

As we mentioned before, the SDSI programme has become an Erasmus Mundus Joint master’s programme. Starting from next year, studies will be held on-site only, with mobility periods in 3 different countries - Latvia, Finland and Estonia. An essential fact is that the Erasmus Mundus status is valued as a sign of quality in education. It has also contributed to recognition of the programme. European Commission research results show that Erasmus+ significantly improves students' career prospects and personal growth.

In addition to the high quality of studies and international recognition, the programme will also provide 1400 EUR monthly scholarships for 20 best students as well as 50% tuition fee waiver for students originating from Europe.

The programme is implemented through the union of 3 international cooperation partners - the Latvian Academy of Arts (leading partner), the University of Lapland in Finland and the Estonian Academy of Arts. Stockholm School of Economics in Riga also participates in SDSI implementation as an associated academic partner.

If you want to execute leadership roles in organizations in the private and public sectors, spearheading change processes, envisioning the future, managing multidisciplinary teams and overcoming innovation roadblocks - welcome on board!
