Master Design (MDes) Social Innovation

Ravensbourne
Campus Part time 1 - 2  September 2017 United Kingdom London

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.

Top Part time Master's Programs in Innovation. Sustainable development is one of the major social challenges facing the twenty-first century - this much is beyond dispute. Yet, it still remains unclear in which direction, within which social and ecological framework, and by means of which strategy sustainable development can move forward. These questions form the starting point of our inter- and transdisciplinary research-oriented, and problem-focused Master's program Sustainability Science. CONTENT AND IDEA A distinctive feature of the Sustainability Sciences program is its balance between sustainable natural sciences and sustainable humanities. Our goal is to look at social-ecological systems in an academically grounded and interdisciplinary manner. We will examine the processes which form the material and energetic basis for environmental sustainability problems as well as potential practical solutions from the perspective of sustainable natural sciences. In complex social-ecological systems these material processes are closely interconnected with economic, juridical, political, and cultural contexts as well as with strategies and practices of important social actors. These immaterial prerequisites and conditions of environmental sustainability problems and the way these problems are addressed are the subject of sustainable humanities. [-]

Master in Economics of Innovation and GrowthInnovation and entrepreneurship are prime factors behind value creation, economic prosperity and employment growth. These initiatives can take place on several levels – enterprise, regional and national – and lead to new businesses as well as increased competitiveness for those already established. The growing awareness of the importance of innovation among knowledge-based firms, financial markets and policymakers has created a demand for a programme which integrates aspects of technology, economy, financing and other related areas.Programme outlineThe programme is focused on the economic aspects of the innovation process, i.e. the process of commercialising inventions. Innovations are created by trying to solve production problems and learning from experience, finding new and better ways of doing things, profiting from new markets, or sometimes just to satisfy curiosity. The intensity and direction of these activities are conditioned by laws, institutions, customs and regulations that affect their incentive and ability to appropriate rents from newly created technologies.The Master programme aims to provide students with the analytical tools derived from modern economic theories. These include specialisation, diversification and dissemination of ideas and knowledge; innovation activities, international competition, trade and growth. Another objective is to make the students in the programme familiar with applied techniques for analysing, measuring and predicting specialisation, trade flows and price patterns in the context of a global economy, with dynamic competitive advantages and increasing returns.The student will acquire comprehensive training in understanding and solving complex problems in modern economics, and in producing solid foundations for policy decisions by knowledge-based firms, financial markets and policymakers.Degree projectThe degree project is compulsory in order to obtain a Master degree, and the student must complete the required courses with their related credits in order to participate in the final thesis. Students who have successfully completed the programme and project, will then be awarded a "Degree of Master of Science " with a specialisation in Economics of Innovation and Growth. Career prospectsThe programme allows for a broad spectrum of career opportunities within the private and public sector. Previous students can be found in banking, large multinational corporations, governmental agencies, consultancy companies, academia and entrepreneurial ventures.... [-]
