About this course

The Master of Design: Design Innovation Program  integrates deep expertise in design practice with business discipline in a broad-based curriculum that uses market challenges and social initiatives as the context for learning. The program is a full-time, two-year (60 credit hours) interdisciplinary program intended for those who want to lead the design and planning of new products, services, environments, systems and organizations. Emphasizing four key skill areas (empathy, analysis, contextual understanding, and communication), the curriculum is designed to teach students how to effectively define and solve a problem, and to impart critical leadership skills for mobilizing and motivating teams toward successful outcomes. Graduates of the MDes program will be poised to lead in organizational and social transformation, as design strategists and innovation leaders in corporations, nonprofits, educational institutions, or entrepreneurial ventures.
