Based on a project culture and on our own innovative methodology, the Master in Interior Space Design Methodology course aims to produce professionals with the ability to innovate in the vast field that is space design. Different spaces and scales will be worked on in a multicultural context, ranging from the human side to urban aspects, focusing on the details and taking on a contemporary, cross-sector approach.

​- To have greater contact with the professional world and acquire the necessary tools to tackle the heterogeneity and diversity of programmes and places encompassed within the field of interior design.

- To focus predominantly on research by learning a methodology and project process. The end result is not a goal in itself, but a vehicle for providing the student with the necessary knowledge and tools to handle any type of multidisciplinary project in the future. Students develop the ability to plan and understand the stages of the work process by alternating both aspects.

The course also draws on the students’ diverse backgrounds in order to further enhance the group’s knowledge.


Graduates from various disciplines and professionals aiming to focus their profile towards areas related to the development and/or management of design for commercial spaces.

The Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces has been designed for dynamic professionals with global responsibilities or those destined to assume such responsibilities and aiming to study while continuing their successful careers.

The various broad disciplines to be addressed in this Master’s course has been structured around the design of the purchase experience by the user and the design of experiences by the employee. These transversalexperiences are to be designed in commercial spaces by providing branding with a prominent crosscutting role within the content.

This is why an interdisciplinary professional profile is required.
