Do you have a keen interest in the value of creativity and design and how this can best be used as a strategic tool for organisations?
The MA Design Management course will allow you to harness the power of design and innovation in a corporate context.
Offering industry engagement in fashion management or design strategy and innovation, you will develop transferrable design knowledge that will enable you to recognise the value of design and provide effective leadership and management within this sector. You will also have the opportunity to undertake a series of collaborative projects with third parties or organisations currently working within this industry.
On completion of this course you will leave with an in-depth understanding of how design can contribute to leadership, sustainability and business or social innovation, in addition to possessing the necessary skills to build and manage organisational growth through the development and launch of new products, services and brands.
Applicants with substantial relevant experience alone will be considered on their individual merit. Applicants will be expected to be computer literate and should be familiar with the use of internet applications.
Who would this Course suit?
Are you a designer, graduate or manager who would like to develop your strategic and managerial skills within design and innovation? This course could be for you.
Applicants will normally be expected to have a good honours degree. This does not have to be in design but, applicants should have experience in a relevant industry or be able to demonstrate a link between their current job/experience and design. This refers to design in the broadest sense so can include organisational design, systems design and service design as well as more traditional design disciplines such as product, fashion and graphics. Mature applicants with a lower qualification and at least 3 years appropriate professional experience may be accepted.
