Descripción

Would you like to develop skills and tools to create concrete design proposals? Do you want to expand your knowledge? If so, this programme is right for you.


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 to 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.


Design Management integrates innovation processes, multidisciplinary decision-making, a human-centered mindset and business strategies, to create effective products and services addressing the current landscape of the challenges the world faces today (such inclusion, sustainability and diversity) toward successful and meaningful companies. Design Management blends designers’ way of thinking, sensibility and methodologies with business viability, management strategies and market value creation.

Lo mejor: The most important thing is that it has given me a new way of thinking, creatively on a personal level as well as interacting with people from different cultures. I would highlight the variety of professor’s profiles. This course has showed me design from a different side, noticing not only the aesthetic side but the importance of making a change people could value.

Methodology

At IED Barcelona Design Management is taught by a faculty body of practitioners from Design & Business, through the immersion and practice of different innovation and strategic methodologies, analysis of case studies and the execution of a real-industry project commissioned either by multinational companies competing in the global economy, or local companies competing in the international markets. This approach facilitates the training in decision making, placing the students in a real context for innovation and experimentation.

Following the learning-by-doing methodology, students are constantly developing relevant projects in teams. The learnings and competences achieved will be applied at the transversal real-industry project alongside the program. The Design Management Master students are hosted in a dedicated classroom, a space that it's transformed in an innovation design studio where students experiment with new tools and knowledge, with the guidance of the faculty. Small groups of students in the class facilitate the application of this hand-on methodology.

Design managers most likely won’t need to design in detail themselves, but they must be able to communicate very clearly their concepts, either to the business staff or to the design team in order to achieve the desired results. Therefore the students are taught a very diverse set of tools, to train their skills to a level where they can communicate well and loose the fear to discuss at sketch level or through a video.

With the aim of creating synergies between futures professionals, some transversal activities are held for exchanging knowledge with students of different programs. This is also part of IED philosophy. 

PERSONAL RESEARCH PROJECT

The Personal Research Project is the single most important piece of written work that students undertake during their RSP Research Study Program. PRP is the culmination Master and should demonstrate that the student has acquired skills, knowledge and analytical capabilities.

The project is an original piece of research involving primary data collection which aim is to undertake an individual work that meets the requirements outlined in these guidelines in order to achieve a passing grade.

The objectives of the thesis process are the following:

. To identify a feasible project in the student’s area of study

. To establish clearly defined objectives and/or questions to be investigated

. To design and implement an appropriate (design research/process) methodology

. To understand the adding value proposition (concept)

. To create a business development plan based on the previous concept.

. To create feasible and concrete design proposals

. To demonstrate analytical skills and produce valid findings

. To apply theory to practical reality

. To draw appropriate conclusions and recommendations where necessary

. To produce a well organized and well-written final document and an effective oral presentation of the thesis

INTERNSHIP

After finishing classes and presenting the two real industries projects, students have the opportunity to implement and prove all the knowledge acquired and skills developed in a three months internship.

In the same period students are working on their PRP so that they can choose to focus their investigation on a personal project or to connect it with the internship.

FIELD TRIPS

To give students a wider understanding of market state-of-the-art, 2 field trips are scheduled in the course curriculum. With the guidance of professors and coordination, students explore different markets and professional contexts in Europe.

Each Field Trip will take students for 3 to 5 days to European cities to exchange knowledge in different environments. After those days devoted to academic activities, students have the opportunity to discover the city by their own. The proposed trips for this academic year are*:

. Milan_ Salone del Mobile 2016 and visit to companies.

. Geneva_ Innovation Bootcamp at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research).

Student's profile

The master recognizes and welcomes students from a range of backgrounds in design, management and theoretical fields.
