Mission and Goals
The programme has the aim of preparing a highly qualified designer able to take on a design role concerning the product service system (considered as a blend of products, communication strategies, services and spaces used by profit and non profit entities –enterprises, institutions, associations, etc.- to represent themselves in an integrated form to their reference market) in international contexts in which the individual innovation is no longer sufficient to combat increasing competitivity. The fundamental educational objective is to offer a wide range of design tools able to provide appropriate skills in creatively managing products, services, events, and communication strategies in an integrated way.
Students holding a Bachelor of Art or a Bachelor degree in Design or a relevant post-graduate work experience with a design background, and 15 years of global education are eligible for application.
The candidate is required to provide a portfolio and an English proficiency certificate.
The graduate in Product Service Systems Design typically finds employment in companies in the design sector but also within research institutes for the design sector (Trend Institute, Research Agencies, etc.) and in consulting and communication companies. In particular, certain roles which this figure may occupy are product-, interior-, communication-, service- designer, brand designer, corporate coordinator, trends analyst, art director.
