What is an MA in Design Management? It is a master’s degree that integrates multidisciplinary studies, innovation processes, business strategies and human-centered mindsets. The purpose of most design management programs is to blend a designer’s way of thinking, methodologies and sensibilities with management strategies, business viability and market value creation.  Students may take courses such as design innovations and marketing strategies, applied theory in design, facilitating creative thinking, idea visualization, and history and interpretation of innovation.

Design management programs tend to equip students with a diverse array of skills. Many students gain invaluable leadership skills and develop their ability to use critical thinking to solve a variety of problems. Through management training, you may discover you are a better communicator as well.

Different schools offer different curriculums. Because of this, the cost of admittance into a master’s degree program for design management may fluctuate depending on the school and program you choose to enroll in. Find a program that suits your needs and contact the office of admissions directly for detailed information regarding tuition.

Typically, an MA in Design Management prepares you for a role in design management and research, brand management and other managerial positions within the design industry. You may be qualified for a position as an art director, a graphic design manager or an industrial design manager. Art directors tend to work for publishing companies or advertising agents.

The Master in Lifestyle Management: Design, Wellness & Events is aimed at training those professionals who will act as a bridge between creative and managerial processes in the lifestyle and creative based industries. From being junior brand manager, to product manager, merchandising manager, or event manager, the common denominator is to understand and manage the complexity of creative design processes, as well as projects aimed at designing services, intangibles, brand identities and powerful storytelling. Traditional companies, from fashion to design, are radically re-thinking their business models, designing new strategies for targeting new customer segments, and addressing the needs of a new, demanding, unexpected customer base. That’s why brands are moving into lifestyle, from fashion, to design, wellness, experiences and event management too. This requires a solid knowledge of an offer system typically designed around symbols, values, intangibles, know-how, blended with craftsmanship and the art of inspiration, starting from the excellence system of the Made in Italy, evolving into Lifestyle branding and the Italian Lifestyle. When boundaries are erased, compelling challenges come to the front row of a new meta-industry. Merging traditional skills, designing and marketing brand experiences, the Master in Lifestyle Management represents the link between business management and design management. From tailoring innovative "customer-centric" strategies, to envisioning Lifestyle Startups. -
