Visionary designers and managers to follow Gaudí.

A cultural, industrial and financial centre on the world scale, Barcelona has, among many merits, that of organizing the First World Culture Forum in 2004, a sign of the attention this city pays to the complex issues of globalisation, issues that IED tackles on its campus here, where it trains designers to be capable of understanding, experimenting and developing new tools for designing and managing the great transformations taking place in society.

Here they learn to work in the various fields of design, as well as to recognise and manage the macrotrends of change as and before they come about.

Understanding complexity, the disciplinary interactions at work in design and how to manage processes of transformation is the focus of design management.

In this sense, the IED Barcelona is a workshop for conducting analysis and research applied to material culture, a focus it is destined to develop increasingly in future.

The city is one of humanity’s most important inventions and it is facing basic challenges for the future in the 21st century.

Against this backdrop, design is an essential tool for improving the social, cultural and economic fabric of the urban contexts in which we live.

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

Day after day the business world is becoming more complex to manage with lower and lower margin for errors. In this context, the value of a discipline resides in its ability to facilitate better-informed decisions. This highly competitive environment requires knowledge that helps increase effectiveness, knowledge that reduces the number of failures associated with the risk of innovation. As Marketing did in the past, Design is being identified as the next discipline to join the pool of functions required for successful Business Management.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, different fields such as business and engineering have regarded design as an important strategic advantage for innovation and change (organizational, social, technological, business transformation, etc.). Thanks to its ability to integrate brand, market, and business needs with user research, and consumer need identification to propose future scenarios, the role of Design is now changing from a project-based to a strategy-based function. Its ability to project, visualize and validate, makes Design a critical tool in decision making by minimizing the risk of innovation uncertainties.... [-]

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

Fashion is part of our society. The act of “getting dressed” is part of our culture, covering functional needs of human beings and, more important, satisfying the necessity of communication. People from ancient times had always covered the body, both for determining the sense of belonging, and to differentiate from peers. Just considering that nowadays one of the first things done with new-borns in occidental society is dressing them, we can understand the importance of garment. The fashion phenomenon involves multiple complexities: we are no longer talking about a product; we are facing a complex system of interrelated disciplines that gives consumers a comprehensive experience where the garment is just a part of it. The product is surrounded by an entire world to be managed to ensure that the final target receives the right message and satisfies its expectations.... [-]

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

The Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces proposes to work from the basis of a theoretical and practical reflection on the design of the commercial space. The aim is to combine theoretical concepts and construction, quotation, and material interpretation, with the understanding that the design practice exists in relation to current society, to the present.

Therefore, applying a historical perspective to design, analyzing the current situation, and referring to the history of the place will, therefore, be important issues to consider. The Master uses Barcelona as its working ground, and so deals with the commercial space associated with a territory where the street is the protagonist. Due to the geographical characteristics of our city, and good weather, much use is made of public spaces. Streets and squares are open spaces that oxygenate the urban fabric; and, within this area of high-density housing, they provide necessary ‘living rooms’ for citizens.... [-]

The Master in Service Design aims to build-up and to repurpose the abilities that designers already have, and support them in developing complementary skills that back their work with strategic and human complexity within a service context.

What does designing for service mean? So far, academics and practitioners in service design have defined it from three major perspectives. The first focus in the field lied in orchestrating delightful and smooth online and offline experiences. This has now expanded to sensing opportunities and developing them into new arrangements for creating value with users —and multiple stakeholders. Even further, to ensure that all stakeholders participate actively in defining new practices and narratives about what is valuable. Each of those perspectives implies different mindsets, tools, and practices; that is, different skills, some of which are at the forefront of service design.... [-]
