What students say

Vasilis Kostakis

Technology Governance and Digital Transformation (MA)


Every course in the Master's in Technology Governance sheds light on different perspectives of the economy, the technology and society. Therefore, every single lecture was a unique experience. Interacting with world-class, heterodox scholars is an open-minded environment: what else could you ask for?

TalTech is as innovative and progressive as Estonia itself: Mektory, for one, has played a vital role in inspiring and driving the study process. This is how our start-up was born - truly an experience unlike any other. I have graduated with cum laude but people I became friends with and the spirit of TalTech will always drive me back to my alma mater.

New curriculum of E-Governance Technologies and Services has been established at TalTech
