M2M Mentorship Platform

Our M2M mentorship platform aims to connect students of the Master of Digital Entrepreneurship (MoDE) with mentors from different fields of business, research and development. Once registered on the platform, you can get in touch with mentors providing the type of support you need to discuss your innovative ideas and develop your individual project further. The relationship between mentee and mentor is sought, found and negotiated on a bilateral basis.

Please register online and create your profile to find your personal mentors.


You can collect 12 ECTS credits in the practical module (D). Here, you can choose between a full-time work placement for ten weeks or a group project of the same duration. The work placement should be qualifying for profession and bear reference to digital society. Organization and realization of the work placements are in the responsibility of the students. Recognition of the work placements is decided upon by the examination board and prepared by the MoDE program coordinator.

In case of shorter work placements, workshops of the Viadrina Business Incubator can be recognized with one ECTS credit per workshop (8h plus personal working activities).

The Viadrina Career Center can provide support in finding a suitable work placement, locally as well as abroad. Further details can be found in the Guideline for Work Placements below.

Examination Board


The examination board of the MoDE makes sure that the terms of the regulations are complied with. They report on the development of the exams and the study periods to the faculties, give new input to reform the regulations and present the distribution of the module grades and the final grades. They decide on the transfer of study and examination credits as well as on the permission for exam registration and the examination dates.

Master's Thesis

  • As a first step, please send an email to the examination office (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) asking for admission to the Master’s thesis. The following modules have to be completed: Module A, Module C (including one course B2), Module D, Module E and at least one Preparatory Colloquium (F). Module B doesn’t have to be completed, but enrollment in the second Preparatory Colloquium (F) is required.
  • If all the criteria are fulfilled, you will receive a form from the examination office. Please enter your chosen first and second supervisor and let them confirm by signing the document.
  • You have eight weeks for writing your Master’s thesis. The day on which your first supervisor enters your Master’s thesis title on the form marks the first day of this period.
  • Once the title is entered, please hand the form back to the examination office to get confirmation of your thesis’ submission date.
  • You need to hand in two paper copies and a digital version of your thesis at the examination office by the submission deadline.
  • The supervisors have six weeks to evaluate your master’s thesis. After that, you will agree with them on a date for your oral exam (Final Colloquium).
  • Students doing the double degree should contact the AMU (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for the specific procedure.
