Course content

Learn how to convert innovation and creativity into business success through effective design management. Taught by experts with extensive research experience and industry knowledge, this degree opens up career possibilities in a wide range of sectors.

The MA Design Management explores the effective use of design in a business context, encompassing product design, process design, service design and brand design. You’ll gain an understanding of the whole design management cycle, from the identification of market trends and use of research to inform the design process, through to branding, marketing, after-sales and product recycling. The programme is taught by academics with industry experience and research expertise, including specialist knowledge of the relationship between design and finance, and design and law. They use interactive activities such as practical mini projects, study visits to London museums and a simulation workshop to consolidate your learning. In addition, guest lectures by external practitioners offer industry insights and a chance to build your networks. Taught within a creative art school environment, the course offers the academic rigour that you would expect from a Russell Group university, and you’ll graduate with knowledge and skills that will enable you to advance in a wide range of sectors.
