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. Entry requirements Home/EU First or upper second class honours degree (or equivalent non-UK qualifications) in a relevant subject, or an equivalent professional qualification in a related subject area. If you are applying directly from an undergraduate degree course without experience or professional practice you must be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of your chosen subject area. International In order to be eligible for a course, you will need to be a competent speaker and writer of English. This also applies if you are from the European Union, or if you're from a country outside the EU. You will need a level of IELTS 6.5, with a minimum of 6.0 in each section. Course structure Course aims To understand the role of social innovation as a business discipline balancing both leadership roles in terms of innovation, the creation of vision and future directions and management roles in terms of using specific tools, methods and techniques. To approach leadership, organisational and enterprise development from the perspective of design thinking and creative innovation. Study units Stage One Developing a knowledge base and new reference points - introduces you to a range of theories and practices in the strategic use of design and innovation, with a particular focus on the method of design thinking in the global context and how it relates to social and environmental change and sustainability. Stage Two Putting new learning into a professional context – develops the practical application of design thinking with a focus on innovation and industry-oriented professional practice based on design management. It also extends your innovation and leadership toolkit. The Studio Practice unit gives you the opportunity to take on a work placement or design research project which will inform your major project.

Encompassing courses in design thinking and business management, the Master of Professional Studies in Design Management (M.P.S.) degree at the Shintaro Akatsu School of Design (SASD) prepares design managers to lead creative teams in a variety of design-based industries. The outstanding faculty – both resident and visiting – help develop disruptive thinking using design as the fulcrum for increasing customer delight. Design represents a valuable strategic asset – the tools and the processes to problem-solve and innovate. The management of that asset, the ability to understand, optimize, and steer that energy is becoming vital to an organization’s internal and external success. Category-leading companies like Apple, GE, Johnson & Johnson, Bose, and Schick know this to be a marketable truth. The MPS in Design Management program at SASD is a two-year intensive program for design professionals of all disciplines. Courses are specifically tailored to real-world issues facing designers and are taught by leading design management professionals. The team-based assignments focus on practical and actionable problem solving, preparing students to immediately use the information and skills they learn. Design Managers who graduate from SASD leave with the core skills and tools to apply design thinking to solve the most pressing business issues of our time: sustainability, social responsibility, and profitability. About the program Design Management uses right brain processes to solve left brain problems. This is a screen grab of the top results of an online search for “design management.” There are more report-like documents than pretty designs, suggesting the outcome of a Design Management project is a report rather than an object. Design Management incorporates design thinking, service design, and sustainability. It produces and manages information, services, and experiences. DM advocates and promotes design as a key differentiator and driver of organizational success. Rethink expertise. It’s very easy to think that you are the expert on your own product. But that’s a myth: the true experts are your customers. Jamie Wong (Vayable) Design Management incorporates design thinking, service design, and sustainability. It produces and manages information, services, and experiences. DM advocates and promotes design as a key differentiator and driver of organizational success. DM links design, innovation, technology, management, and customers to provide a competitive advantage across the “triple bottom line”: social/cultural, environmental, and economic. Who are design managers? Design managers lead design firms and design teams in creative industries. Design managers are brand managers, creative directors, design directors, heads of design, design strategists, design researchers, and managers and executives responsible for making decisions on how design is used throughout an organization. Design department managers, brand managers, creative directors, design directors, heads of design, design strategists, design researchers, and managers and executives responsible for making decisions on how design is used in an organization. The importance of accurately perceiving and assessing quality Design managers work with and lead others to develop superior business solutions. To be an effective leader, it is necessary to have two things: a refined and elevated sense of excellence, and a refined and elevated sense of mediocrity (average, unremarkable). The best way to learn relative quality is to compare your work to others’ in your immediate environment, that is, comparing it to your classmates’ work. Our students learn about assessment, responsibility, and comparative, relative quality. By these means, you will be most able to improve the quality of your own thinking. [-]

Master in Global Design

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Barcelona
Campus Full time January 2017 Spain Barcelona

The aim of the Master in Global Design is to acquire a global vision, open to collaborations with other design disciplines and gain sensitivity and predisposition towards working together with other professionals or join multidisciplinary teams. [+]

Master Programs in Communication Design. THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH Designers interested in developing their career in a global society should conceive design as a global practice. Day after day, the markets are becoming more competitive and ever changing, while the consumer is more demanding when it comes to quality and shows an increasing interest in cultural, ethical or environmental aspects that traditionally haven’t been properly noticed, until today. This context requires from companies and institutions an understanding of the complex market reality and the discovery of strategies that enable them to satisfy the consumer’s needs and demands, and outstand among their competitors. In the last few years, products (whether they are an object, a dress, a space) are no longer perceived for their physical dimension, but for every single detail surrounding them: they way they are shown (both in virtual and real life), their in-store presence, their packaging, the graphics and their visual communication. The experience of buying, using and consuming is increasingly related to the values associated with a product and the brand it belongs to (intangible values, such as symbols or emotions) that influence customer loyalty towards them. For all this, today we cannot comprehend the conception of a new product, space of service without the involvement and complicity of professionals from different disciplines. Those professionals with a global conception, capable of understanding together languages and ways to work will be able to collaborate with other designers or join multidisciplinary work teams, in addition to being those prepared to offer a solid professional response, keeping with the demands of the current market. Objectives The aim of the Master in Global Design is to acquire a global vision, open to collaborations with other design disciplines and gain sensitivity and predisposition towards working together with other professionals or join multidisciplinary teams. The course is a way to improve professional profiles that are performing in a particular discipline (product or fashion design, communication, interior design or marketing and business) by expanding their knowledge and skills, and facilitating the contact or even the development of projects within other design disciplines. In some cases, students will also acquire insights and knowledge of their fields of specialization. A chance to stay current in latest trends of their specialities and an opportunity to face new perspective through discussion with lecturers and professional colleagues. Acknowledgement of different project approaches, new work methods; conceptual, technical or material aspects that will make easier to collaborate with other designers or teams. At the same time, their own professional practice will be enriched. To provide an opportunity to research in fields that students have never approached, as well as in hybrid fields, bringing knowledge that will enhance the critical eye turning it a starting point to build new innovative proposals. Methodology Students will work intensively together with the teaching staff in sessions where different typologies will be combined. The curse lecturers, who are prestigious active professionals, transmit the most recent contents from their own everyday experiences. In order to properly develop the learning process of the course and guarantee a global design experience, the study plan has been conceived through the combination of different work methods: THEORETICAL LESSONS Professors will introduce different subjects that will not only provide methodological knowledge but also analyse practices and cases. To reinforce knowledge acquisition, the teaching staff will monitor the development of research and analysis projects through in-person tutorials. TRANSVERSAL TOOLS Students will be trained in using transversal tools that will back the whole design project, regardless of the field they will apply it to. IMMERSIONS IN DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES The methodology of IED Barcelona is based on the concept of “learning-by-doing”, by which students consolidate knowledge acquisition through the practice and experience in problem-solving and real professional challenges. With this philosophy in mind, students will be part of intensive two-week immersions in different design disciplines. In the first week there will be conferences, lectures and theoretical contents on the discipline. They will hear the voices of different professionals who will show their own work and offer their perspective on a particular subject related to the discipline. Students will develop their own research project on the topic. Once the theoretical immersion is over, students will go into a practice immersion in workshops where they will develop projects under the monitoring of a professor. During this process, while projecting ideas and experimenting with materials in the search for innovative solutions, they will put the acquired theoretical and technical knowledge into practice. This will enable them to gain in-depth knowledge and boost their personal approach. VISITS TO STUDIOS AND WORKSHOPS The opportunity of an enriching experience: a chance to gain first-hand knowledge about the reality of design, through visits to workshops, shops and spaces that have become benchmarks in design in Barcelona, discussing with designers in their own studios. To be in contact with the real market helps students to relate the contents provided during the Master with the reality of professional practice. MASTER’S FINAL PROJECT As consolidation of the new knowledge acquired during the course, students have to develop a Master’s Final Project, where all the experiences of the course will come together. Working in teams students are required to develop a whole global design process, from research to the final project presentation. This project is based on a real commission and developed in collaboration with a company. Student profile Graduates in any design discipline, architects, visual artists, professionals in the fields of marketing and communication. The Master in Global Design is conceived for professionals and recent graduates interested in developing their career in design projects of global nature with a multidisciplinary and transversal perspective; product, fashion, communication, interior designers or professionals in other disciplines who want to update their knowledge and acquire competences in other design areas beside their speciality. The course is also open to professionals in architecture and visual arts, and also in the fields of marketing, communication or business predisposed to acknowledge tools that enable them to include a global view of design in their previous knowledge. Requirements Applicants for the Master in Global Design should present a portfolio with their work.

Campus Full time March 2017 Italy Turin

Despite it’s relatively recent discovery, photography has gone through different evolutions changing itself and the world around it. On one side, it has helped us to better understand the many manifestations of reality. On the other side, photography has unhinged our certainties to reveal a metaphysical inner world. With the advent of digital photography, the photographer’s work- from pioneering alchemy in its infancy, to advanced computing today – has undergone a process of democratization that has broadened the basic skill base and raised the level of expectation at the top. To be an exceptional professional photographer today not only requires having technical expertise at shooting and printing but also a broader awareness of the entire creative and production processes. Familiarity with all technological aspects (shooting, editing, post production, presentation, distribution), the different areas and related parties involved are not enough to meet the market’s needs. Creativity and content design are the difference between the role of a person who merely does the work and of a potential creative director. A holistic approach is therefore essential to establish oneself as a leading professional in the industry.

More experienced photographers are hired not only as technical experts, but as real creative directors. In this light, it is clear that a multi-disciplinary approach is the main goal. The ability to understand and control the different aspects of a production. Likewise, the main objective of the course is to develop the creative professional who is able to express their vision while being in line with the needs of the customer, thus resolving the dichotomy between the artist and the technical expert. REQUIREMENTS AND ADMISSION PROCEDURES // Preliminary Module Candidates who are highly motivated, already have an understanding of photographic equipment and their own vision but are keen to increase critical awareness of themselves and knowledge of photographic tools, may access the Module Preliminary. // Master Module In order to access to Master’s Module from Preliminary, all exam in the latter must be passed and 60 ECTS must be achieved in the manner described above.
