Program Description

Design Management

Macromedia University for Media and Communication

Master in Design Management

In creative professions, the demand for management knowledge and management qualifications has risen sharply in recent years.

The Master’s course in “Design Management” is aimed primarily at talented designers who wish to apply a comprehensive understanding of design to tasks and processes. However, it is different points of view which broaden one’s perspective, creating the fertile soil for true innovation. Therefore applicants from a completely different background are welcome, be they engineers, natural scientists or creative people. During their studies the Master’s degree students learn to think about and analyse management and design together, and make decisions and shape the future.

Within the interdisciplinary team, Master’s degree students develop solutions to design problems, be they in relation to strategy design, service design or human-centred design. This is also relevant for those starting up companies, as the initial stages of a new business is a design process. The goal is to become “T-shaped professionals”, in other words, graduates with a comprehensive, interdisciplinary qualification (so-called horizontal qualification) who also bring to the team very specialist (vertical) knowledge in design.
