Course content

The role of Design Management covers aspects of project management, design and strategic planning to administer the creative process in a professional environment. By covering these topics with a focus on academic underpinning to real-life situations, our MA degree prepares you for a career in innovation and leadership within the fast-moving creative industries.

This MA will appeal to design organisations as well as engineering employers for the advancement of candidates holding a first degree, or equivalent qualification, in a design/engineering related field.
