The Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces proposes to work from the basis of a theoretical and practical reflection on the design of the commercial space. Read more
The Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces proposes to work from the basis of a theoretical and practical reflection on the design of the commercial space. The aim is to combine theoretical concepts and construction, quotation, and material interpretation, with the understanding that the design practice exists in relation to current society, to the present.

Therefore, applying a historical perspective to design, analysing the current situation, and referring to the history of the place will therefore be important issues to consider. The Master uses Barcelona as its working ground, and so deals with the commercial space associated with a territory where the street is the protagonist. Due to the geographical characteristics of our city, and good weather, much use is made of public spaces. Streets and squares areopen spaces that oxygenate the urban fabric; and, within this area of high-density housing, they provide necessary ‘living rooms’ for citizens.

Barcelona, unlike American cities, for example, is a “mixed-use” city, a sparsely zoned territory, where domestic life, work, and leisure co-exist. These two characteristics, the use of the public space and the “mixed-use”, makes the ground floor an important place of transition, and a threshold between public and private life. The boundary between the interior and the exterior is a blurred one, where the confines of the street do not end at the buildings, but rather extend into their interior, through its contact with the ground. Over the past few decades Barcelona has been reconstructing its own landscape, limited by the geographical elements that surround it (mountains, rivers, and the sea), carrying out different urban projects which arose from historical needs. In recent years, these transformations have been tied in with major events, and three projects in particular have changed Barcelona’s urban structure:
The Olympic Village developed for the Olympic Games in Barcelona in 1992. The extension of Avinguda Diagonal carried out in 2006 which involved the modification of the metropolitan area of Barcelona, extending Avinguda Diagonal as far as the sea. The creation of 22@ in the Poble Nou district, a new urban structure designed to transform the old area into a focus for new activity, where a balance is sought between its different potential uses. Making use of this richness, the course deals with the concept of the commercial space in relation to the “street”, taking into account the social and political situation to intervene in places that form part of the public debate.

Students will work intensively together with the teaching staff in sessions where different typologies will be combined. The curse lecturers, who are prestigious active professionals, transmit the most recent contents from their own everyday experiences.

In order to properly develop the learning process of the course and guarantee a global design experience, the study plan has been conceived through the combination of different work methods:

THEORETICAL LESSONS

Professors will introduce different subjects that will not only provide methodological knowledge but also analyse practices and cases. To reinforce knowledge acquisition, the teaching staff will monitor the development of research and analysis projects through in-person tutorials.

TRANSVERSAL TOOLS

Students will be trained in using transversal tools that will back the whole design project, regardless of the field they will apply it to.

IMMERSIONS IN DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES

The methodology of IED Barcelona is based on the concept of “learning-by-doing”, by which students consolidate knowledge acquisition through the practice and experience in problem-solving and real professional challenges.

With this philosophy in mind, students will be part of intensive two-week immersions in different design disciplines.

In the first week there will be conferences, lectures and theoretical contents on the discipline. They will hear the voices of different professionals who will show their own work and offer their perspective on a particular subject related to the discipline. Students will develop their own research project on the topic.

Once the theoretical immersion is over, students will go into a practice immersion in workshops where they will develop projects under the monitoring of a professor. During this process, while projecting ideas and experimenting with materials in the search for innovative solutions, they will put the acquired theoretical and technical knowledge into practice.

This will enable them to gain in-depth knowledge and boost their personal approach.

VISITS TO STUDIOS AND WORKSHOPS

The opportunity of an enriching experience: a chance to gain first-hand knowledge about the reality of design, through visits to workshops, shops and spaces that have become benchmarks in design in Barcelona, discussing with designers in their own studios. To be in contact with the real market helps students to relate the contents provided during the Master with the reality of professional practice.

MASTER’S FINAL PROJECT

As consolidation of the new knowledge acquired during the course, students have to develop a Master’s Final Project, where all the experiences of the course will come together.

Working in teams students are required to develop a whole global design process, from research to the final project presentation.

This project is based on a real commission and developed in collaboration with a company.

At IED Barcelona Fashion Management is taught by a faculty body of practitioners from Fashion & Business, through the analysis of case studies and the execution of real-industry projects commissioned either by multinational companies competing in the global economy, or local companies competing in the international markets. All the contents, methodologies and tools are taught from the specificity of the fashion industry. This approach facilitates the training in decision making, placing the students in a real context for innovation and experimentation.

With the aim of giving a broad and complete preparation to develop their professional careers in the fashion market, students are trained in different and complementary fields. The complexity of managing a fashion business requires a proper knowledge on diverse tools, and the ability to apply critical analysis to quickly react on a changing landscape.

Fashion Managers should manage the complete cycle of fashion, from product conceptualization until the product is set on the store and packed in consumer’s shopping bag. The expertise on the fashion market is approached from the key disciplines involved in the fashion system. Experts in these fields will transmit students their experience on fashion trends, process of product design and production, branding, retail and visual merchandising. The awareness on Fashion Culture, complemented with Semiotics, Market Research and Trends will give a proper awareness to understand the target.

Business skills are taught from the perspective of fashion business. Marketing, sales, finances, distribution and supply chain are tackled from the fashion business specificity, from the big company’s perspective, but also giving the tools to undertake start-up projects as entrepreneurs.

Following the learning-by-doing methodology, students are constantly developing projects in teams. The Fashion Management Master students are hosted in a dedicated classroom, a space that it's transformed in an innovation design studio where students experiment with new tools an knowledge, with the guidance of the faculty. Small groups of students in the class facilitate the application of this hand-on methodology.

Leading managers need to have strong personal skills, to head projects involving heterogeneous teams of people. They should be capable to be the reference for the working team, but also transmit confidence to senior positions and investors. Personal branding, people management and creative leadership will be then integrated during the development of classes.

Fashion leaders must be able to communicate very clearly their concepts, either to the business staff or to the working team in order to achieve the desired results. Therefore the students are taught a very diverse set of tools, to train their skills to a level where they can communicate well.

With the aim of creating synergies between future professionals, some transversal activities will be held for exchanging knowledge with students of different programs is part of IED philosophy.

PERSONAL RESEARCH PROJECT

The Personal Research Project is the single most important piece of written work that students undertake during their RSP Research Study Program. PRP is the culmination Master and should demonstrate that the student has acquired skills, knowledge and analytical capabilities.

The project is an original piece of research involving primary data collection which aim is to undertake an individual work that meets the requirements outlined in these guidelines in order to achieve a passing grade.

The objectives of the thesis process are the following:

.To identify a feasible project in the student’s area of study

.To establish clearly defined objectives and/or questions to be investigated

.To design and implement an appropriate (design research/process) methodology

.To understand the adding value proposition (concept)

.To create a business development plan based on the previous concept.

.To create feasible and concrete design proposals

.To demonstrate analytical skills and produce valid findings

.To apply theory to practical reality

.To draw appropriate conclusions and recommendations where necessary

.To produce a well organized and well-written final document and an effective oral presentation of the thesis

INTERNSHIP

After finishing classes and presenting the two real industries projects, students have the opportunity to implement and prove all the knowledge acquired and skills developed in a three months internship.

In the same period students are working on their PRP so that they can choose to focus their investigation on a personal project or to connect it with the internship.

FIELD TRIPS

To give students a wider understanding of market state-of-the-art, 2 field trips are scheduled in the course curriculum, one to Milano and the other to Paris.

With the guidance of professors and coordination, students will explore different markets and professional contexts in Europe.

Field trips take students for 4 days to European Fashion Capitals to exchange knowledge in different environments. After this days devoted to academic activities, students have the opportunity to discover the city by their own.

Design managers most likely won’t need to design in detail themselves, but they must be able to communicate very clearly their concepts, either to the business staff or to the design team in order to achieve the desired results. Therefore the students are taught a very diverse set of tools, to train their skills to a level where they can communicate well and loose the fear to discuss at sketch level or through a video.

With the aim of creating synergies between futures professionals, some transversal activities are held for exchanging knowledge with students of different programs. This is also part of IED philosophy.

The study plan has a practical approach and is focused on market reality. The methodology of IED Barcelona is based on the concepts of learning-by-doing and User Centered Design, by which students consolidate the knowledge acquisition through practice and attaining experience solving real problems and professional challenges, analysing the usage of terminals by users and integrating them in the development.

Under the guidance of this philosophy, the Master’s degree methodology is centered on project development, from the inception of an idea to its fulfilment and real market implementation. Subjects are directed from a real perspective, with completely updated contents, and given by lecturers, who are working top professionals, experts on their subjects and with a relevant professional experience.

The course is founded on two content areas: user experience design and programming. Expertise will be acquired by means of two didactic cores: the project execution and the collaboration with institutions.

Master program description

In 2009, OECD countries used more than 20% of their national incomes for public social spending (pensions, health system, income support and other social programs). Another 5% was spent on public education. These numbers are much larger in some developed countries and fast growing in many developing ones. These are big numbers, and successful public policies can make a difference for the lives of millions.

How and why do particular public policies get implemented? How are they designed? How do we know if they work? Why are some policies more successful than others? The Master Program in Economics of Public Policy provides students with theoretical and empirical tools to answer these questions. Our graduates will be prepared to work in leading international organizations, governmental and non-governmental agencies, consulting companies, research institutions or to pursue a further academic career.
Master degree

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Specialized Economic Analysis awarded jointly by Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

Program description

International Trade, Finance, and Development (ITFD) is a demanding master program that combines rigorous analytical training with a focus on policy. The course starts with a set of classes in growth, finance, trade, and statistics, and then proceeds to more applied topics. Starting in the second term, students can chose one of two specialized tracks – development, and international trade and finance. Students choose from a wide array of courses, from evaluating development programs to the dynamics of foreign exchange markets. In addition, students prepare a policy project that allows them to apply the skills acquired. In the third term, outside experts share their experiences of applying economic analysis to real-life problems, whether it is in reshaping policy, devising trading strategies, or helping children in Africa.

The ITFD program faculty have worked on a wide range of policy issues related to topics covered in our program. They have held academic positions at MIT, NYU, Maryland, Chicago, Stanford and Cambridge, and have worked at international organizations – from the World Bank to the ECB – and in private sector firms, either as staff members or consultants. Each year in the spring term, leading policy specialists from international organizations, NGOs, or private corporations join the program faculty to lead a series of policy courses that provide a real-world perspective on topics covered in class.

Students complete a thesis at the end of the academic year under the supervision of a faculty member, allowing them to specialize in a policy topic of their choice. Program graduates will be well-equipped for employment in development organizations, NGOs, government agencies, central banks, multinational firms, and investment banks; others tend to join highly selective doctoral programs.

Degree

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Specialized Economic Analysis awarded jointly with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

Structure

The ITFD program is a full-time nine-month master program structured in three terms: Fall term (from September to December), Winter term (from January to March) and Spring term (from April to June). For more information please download the academic calendar.

Students are strongly advised to take the Math and Statistics review course offered in September. More information is available on the ITFD courses page.

Credits

The degree requires the successful completion of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits of graduate courses (6 credits are equivalent to a 40 hour course), some compulsory and some elective. The students' final program must be discussed with and approved by their Master Director.

Grades

The academic performance of each student is reviewed regularly. Attention is given to the maintenance of normal academic progress, through a combination of formal written examinations and coursework. Core courses will award grades. Some optional courses may be evaluated on a pass/fail or pass with honors/pass/fail basis.

Campus

The ITFD program takes place at the Ciutadella campus at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in central Barcelona. The campus is within walking distance of both the beach and the city's financial, cultural and governmental centers. Students can take advantage of a wide array of services and activities offered by the UPF.
