Programme profile


This is a unique programme, enabling students to apply their design and organisational skills to the management of design projects and the strategic design planning of design agencies and companies. It combines theory and practice from the disciplines of design, business & economics and engineering to provide a general overview of the areas where design, technology and management meet. It teaches the necessary skills to manage the interface between these fields.

Design Management bridges the gap between management and design and between design and production. With so many people collaborating together there is an intricate collection of interests to be coordinated. Here is where design managers work to make sure the processes that take place between the corporate design activities of a firm and the creative team of an agency or an in-house development team run smoothly. They also manage the interface between the designers and the staff engineering a new product. Design Management operates at a corporate strategy level where it introduces design as a powerful tool to differentiate a company through innovative and human-centred products, services and brands
