According to a study by ManPower, around 40% of employers show a shortage of talent. The magazine Forbes considers, in one of its articles on the situation of the labor market, that we are not in a crisis of employment but in a crisis of abilities. The professions with a high digital content have given rise to the so-called unemployed professions because there is a lack of professionals in the labor market and companies have entered into a frantic battle to capture and retain these professional profiles. The World Economic Forum conducted a study in which determined that by 2020 among the 10 skills most in demand are creativity, the ability to solve complex problems and critical thinking.

In this context, the methodologies to promote innovation and focus on the customer, such as Design Thinking and Customer Experience, have taken on an enormous importance. These methodologies are increasingly common practice in the forms of work of companies, even the most traditional, in their process of digital transformation in which they try to be more agile and respond better to market demands by adopting the forms of work of startups

The Master of Design Thinking and Customer Experience aims to create innovation professionals who have the conceptual and practical tools to successfully develop Innovation and Design Thinking processes in companies, focusing on the use of tools and methodological techniques, practicing "empathy" techniques to put themselves in the shoes of potential clients and detect unmet needs, developing their creativity, applying it to the solution of real business problems and reflecting on their own profile as potential innovation professionals, in particular their own attitude in the face of risk, error and uncertainty.
