Descripción

This master’s degree is designed for professionals who wish to acquire the essential knowledge to work on and design retail spaces. However, within retail there are many disciplines we will teach you to in which you can develop with the utmost professionalism. From small-scale to large-scale design, from boutiques to large multinational brands, we will explain what differences apply in each case.

All subjects will be dealt with in theory and practice. Importance is given to the analysis and study of trends and innovation in the market and society to get a close-up view of the elements in designing a retail space (space, communication, flow, exhibition, virtual aspects, sensory perceptions, etc.). Art and analysis are the basis of any project and the concept and projection of space. We make every effort so students come away with the highest standards and ability to work with the most demanding companies in the market.
