SIGNATURE PROGRAM

Master in Quantum Technology

At the forefront of the 2nd Quantum Revolution

PROGRAM
DESCRIPTION

In the year 1900 German theoretical physicist Max Planck kickstarted what has been seen as the initial spark of the 1st Quantum Revolution giving birth to modern physics.

100 years after the debates of Albert Einstein and Erwing Schrödinger, the works of Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg and many others during “the golden twenties” we are now at the verge of the 2nd quantum revolution.

Within the next 10 years quantum theory will be applied to the business world and will shape our society and understanding of our reality in a totally new way. This will lead to new business opportunities, shake up industries,  and will define how we work and live in the future.

Starting in the early 2020s and evolving over the next 5-10 years, quantum sensing, quantum communication and the first initial steps to link up classical computing and quantum technologies, to push borders on security, and possibly giving birth to a new parallel coherent internet how we are organized, we are now faced with might turn out to be the most radical change in human history.

Close to 50% of the world’s business leaders believe quantum will be one of the most relevant technological impacts to their business within the next 2-3 years.

Become a leader of change and a pioneer to the second quantum revolution.

Quantum technology will be at the core when it comes to solving the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) of the UN, which will lie at the heart of the economic engine. The 2nd Quantum Technological revolution will bring theoretical and experimental physics together and transform business operating models.

Quantum technology will create the foundation of a new global economic operating system and help solve upcoming challenges. 

By completing the program, participants will have a better knowledge of Quantum Technologies and how it can maximize the advantages out of the use of this technology. The final project is focused on developing a quantum application (technological branch) or a business model based on this technology (business approach).

For business leaders, aspiring entrepreneurs, politicians wanting to understand the “next big thing”, for anyone looking to tap into possible new opportunities or find a way to secure future jobs and stability, the GILT Quantum Technology Master provides a holistic access point to how Quantum Theory and Quantum Technology will shape our lives in future, create new opportunities and influence not only your career path, but the underlying economic operating system like never before.
