Master Design (MDes) Social Innovation

Ravensbourne
Campus Part time 1 - 2 years September 2017 United Kingdom London

The Master of Design in Social Innovation applies the lens of design thinking to address some of society’s most intractable social, environmental and economic challenges. [+]

The Master of Design in Social Innovation applies the lens of design thinking to address some of society’s most intractable social, environmental and economic challenges. Its focus is on the organisational models, methods and approaches needed to shape positive social change, sustainable growth and new business models. In the face of the promise of untold growth we are now confronted by a harsh reality: that in the second decade of the 21st century the traditional model of ‘business as usual’ is no longer viable. In applying a range of approaches to designing and prototyping social ventures and models of organisation, the MDes in Social Innovation will equip you with a practice-based approach to embedding innovation in the area of sustainability, community resilience, corporate social responsibility, venture philanthropy and organisational agility. Working with a cross- disciplinary team of professionals, the course will allow you to learn about radical ideas, evolve these ideas and test them in a ‘lived’ organisational environment. The MDes Social Innovation will demonstrate that many of the most successful designs, innovations and innovators have learned to operate across the boundaries between disciplines, sectors, organisations and traditional services. At its heart lie three design principles: an holistic approach - the need to approach innovation from a ‘holistic’ point of view, drawing on its potential impact in terms of people, technology, the environment, psychological and emotional meaning and long-term sustainability a core intent - the potential to develop a ‘core intent’ and value proposition to organisational models to stimulate commercial and brand value through interaction, social value, collaboration and ideas generation participatory and inclusive - the importance of developing social and environmental solutions ‘with’ and ‘by’ key stakeholders, customers/markets etc. and not simply ‘to’ and ‘for’ people. The course will develop your ideas and skills in people-centred and organisational leadership as a way of transforming the way that public, private and not-for-profit services are shaped using design thinking methodologies.

Campus 9 months November 2017 Spain Barcelona

The students of the Master in Diseño Sostenible de Producto study in depth the complexity and diversity of contemporary creative product design, which is based on analysing the demands of project management and incorporating new social values, such as sustainability. [+]

Best Part time Masters in Innovation 2017. THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN SPANISH In the past, traditional designers simply created. Today, designers are professionals who act as the link between the different departments in a company, often leading the change between the company and society. The creation of wealth and of new values is handled by those who know how to manage uncertainty and use it to bring improvements to both individuals and companies. Modern-day designers are moving away from the duality of form and function; they are professionals who follow the changing needs of the times and provide results that meet the specific requirements of each project. Design today is complex and requires an understanding of both companies and society to provide solutions. In addition to the aesthetic results, design is an essential mental process for generating innovation. The students of the Master in Diseño Sostenible de Producto study in depth the complexity and diversity of contemporary creative product design, which is based on analysing the demands of project management and incorporating new social values, such as sustainability. Objectives The aim of the master’s course is to train design professionals in the areas of innovation, creativity and project and team management. A special emphasis and depth of study are placed on the theme of sustainability, so as to offer multi-directional training and demonstrate different facets and points of view. The objective therefore is to produce designers with a cutting-edge training in a field that is predicted to be the driving force of innovation in the coming years. Methodology The contents of the master’s course are organised into four areas by topic: Sustainability, Techniques, Management and Projects. The courses in the Sustainability area focus on the values and concepts that underpin the analysis and design of the product life cycle. The objective of this area is to strengthen the professional role of the product designer with specific vocabulary and concepts, as well as to offer training in business and company management models. The courses in the Technical area focus on technical product development and the study of users and production trends. The objective of this area is to give more specific, in-depth training in new and more specific projection formulas. The courses in the Management area focus on product feasibility analysis at the design, production and cost management levels, and also from the viewpoint of marketing. The objective of this area is to focus on sustainable development geared toward business creation. The courses in the Projects area touch on a variety of topics that complement the entire course process, encourage individual reasoning, reinforce project methodologies and promote social activism through design. In the second part of the master’s course, the final project begins by partnering with a company, where a project is developed with a professional mindset and demanding criteria. This is a complex design project that brings together all the knowledge acquired throughout the course The final project is supplemented by courses designed to optimise the quality of the student's presentation of the design. During the coursework, inter-disciplinary seminars and workshops are held with guest specialists so as to develop in practice different topics of interest and consolidate the knowledge obtained in the theoretical and practical courses. Intended for Product designers, industrial design engineers, engineers wanting an introduction to design, architects and interior designers interested in sustainability and the new, creative methodologies. Professional opportunities After taking the master’s course, the students have the skills to develop professionally in both design studios and technical and innovation departments, as well as to implement their own projects and design-linked business ideas. They are trained to be ready to join in-company design and innovation teams and to bring value to design studios and/or manage their own professional career by creating an innovative business or their own creative studio. Duration and frequency: Frequency: Monday to Thursday Timetable: 6.30 p.m a 10.30 p.m * The educational planning for all IED Master courses is aligned with the criteria established by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).

Student Profile The Masters in Innovation and Tourism Marketing is intended for people that are passionate about the culture of innovation, technology, and marketing applied in tourism organizations. Applicants wishing to enter this program must be a graduate of a tourism related study or have a degree in a different academic field. This program is appropriate for students who want to acquire or expand their knowledge with regards to the set-up and operations management aimed at innovation and marketing processes in the tourism sector. Therefore, prospective students should show a general interest in tourism as a whole as well as in the innovative aspects of marketing, creativity and design of tourism products, communication, distribution and new technologies applied in this sector. Key Facts Today’s society is evolving at a steady pace. Every day, different problems and challenges emerge, making the development of companies an uncertain path. In order to grow and contribute to the world’s progress, enterprises have to present new solutions to the market and to their business culture, never ignoring the real purpose of any society: to contribute to the common good. The objective of the Masters in Innovation and Tourism Marketing (ITM) is to empower each participant with strong leadership skills in an international and multicultural context in order to acquire knowledge and competences about innovation, technology and marketing, and the ability to apply them in real situations. Recognized academics and successful executives join in a strong faculty team, which presents students the broad perspective of a company in its different aspects, hereby assisting future leaders in their decision-making processes. Students’ individual evolution depends on their cooperative attitude and open- minded personality. As part of an international, multicultural group, classmates will have to team up with each other and work together to overcome different tasks and case studies based on real problems. Naturally, networks will grow in class and the bonds created can lead to projects beyond the master’s program.

Ginesa Martinez del Vas Director of the Master's in Innovation and Tourism Marketing Tourism accounts for one-third of total world trade. Moreover, tourism is the sector that creates the most jobs and has proven itself impervious to economic downturns. Therefore, prospective students should show a general interest in tourism as a whole as well as in the innovative aspects of marketing, creativity and design of tourism products, communication, distribution and new technologies applied in this sector. Spain is a world power in the tourism industry with extensive experience in research and development, that has allowed us to build up a wealth of knowledge, which we feel urged to share and educate on. In the last ten years, the introduction of new management systems and products has revolutionized the tourism branch. Today’s technological environment represents a challenge to the individual operator to compete on equal terms with all the different types of organizations in the sector. This new way of doing business has revolutionized the tourism sector, converting it at the same time both to the second largest percentage of internet searches and No. 1 in terms of internet monetary transactions. Quality, the ability to adapt quickly to change, personalized marketing, innovative products and the creation of new tourism experiences - these are the foundations on which the future of tourism rests. The constant emergence of new competitors and new technologies, along with the specialization and professionalization of the sector means that companies and employees in the industry have to keep up with the speed of these changes. This ambition requires a deep understanding of individual markets and customers, calls on its stakeholders to be creative, to keep abreast of changes in popular culture, to grasp the latest technological developments and to be able to put them to profitable use. These are the skills and knowledge this Master will help students acquire. The Masters in Innovation and Tourism Marketing offered by UCAM, an Affiliated Member of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), is an essential step in the honing of professional skills and a giant leap in the modernization of tourism management, thereby improving the competitiveness of tourism companies and popular tourist destinations.

The Programme has a strong international business component. It is designed to teach you to understand the complex interactions and big picture of an ever more globally interdependent world. This capability enables graduates to become valuable actors in areas like general management, the management of small and medium-sized enterprises and similar organisational roles. The innovation management that is part of hte Programme provides a deep and broad understanding of the nature of innovations, their development and commercialisation. Our focus – in terms of innovation management – ranges from macro-systems (i.e. national innovation systems) to business concept innovations, to more traditional innovation management tasks in R&D, product, service and process innovation management. This more specialised focus complements the acquired general skills set. Entrepreneurship studies, the third fundamental emphasis of GIM, involves working on cognitive and behavioural abilities. These have been found to positively correlate with the development and commercialisation of successful innovations. Job options In summary, the design of GIM opens up a number of possible career opportunities in all kinds of organisational settings and roles. Possible job titles are: category manager – external supply operations branch manager senior manager marketing coordinator managing director development manager Career in research The Master of Science degree opens up the possibility to apply for doctoral studies.
