Course summary

The role of design management covers aspects of project management, design and strategic planning to administer the creative process in a professional environment. By covering these topics with a focus on academic underpinning to real-life situations, our MA degree prepares you for a career in innovation and leadership within the fast-moving creative industries.

This Master's will appeal to design organisations, employers in organisations that design new products, and candidates holding a first degree or equivalent qualification in a design-related field. The aim is to enhance existing skills and abilities by enabling a systematic approach to design and the decision-making process.

On this course you can benefit from opting to take a 30-week placement in industry, extending your course by a year, although this is not mandatory. This will give you essential real-world experience, placing your theory and skills into practice, and enabling you to harvest a network of professional contacts – all of which are vital for successfully launching a career.

Placements

If you choose to take the optional placement, it will begin after completion of the taught units, providing an excellent opportunity for you to gain first-hand industry experience and apply the learning that you have achieved through the course. The placement should be a paid job but voluntary work can be just as enjoyable.

Careers

This course will empower you with the business skills, industry knowledge and confidence needed to spearhead and manage the development of new products and projects within the technological industries, providing you with a route to becoming a successful, dynamic leader in the engineering industry. Good project managers are indispensable to all organisations competing in today’s international businesses, meaning you will be able to enjoy career opportunities in a wide range of industries.
