Strategic Design is a design activity that concerns the Product Service System, i.e. the integrated body of products, services and communication strategies that either an actor or a network of actors (companies, institutions, non-profit organizations, etc.) generate and develop to create value. It is often claimed that technological innovation, cultural and economic globalization and the transition to environmental sustainability generate problems and opportunities. It is also repeatedly stated that the possibility to avoid the former and to exploit the latter requires the development of three core skills: visioning, sensing innovation, creating solutions embedded in new business models.

The Master Programme in Design + Change is an advanced-level two-year programme within Design, the main field of study.

Design involves creativity, criticality, and transformation. The design calls into question the state of things and makes an impact. Design challenges preconceptions, prejudices, norms, and stereotypes and provokes emotions, thoughts, sensibilities, and actions. Design can enhance our lives and our relationships with the world. It can make us attentive and empathic to the ecological and socio-cultural systems in which we live. In a world of many challenges, design can be an agent for sustainable change.

In shaping our futures, designers will face unprecedented challenges compared to what conventional designers faced during the twentieth century. In fact, the role of the designer will and should change.

As agents for change, designers will play key roles in shaping futures of sustainability.... [-]
