Program Description

In today’s competitive and evolving commercial world, businesses could be looking to harness the power of creativity to develop innovation and new designs that may leverage significant competitive advantage.

This Design Management course has a professional and practical focus. It has been developed in collaboration with leading professional design managers from companies including Imagination Ltd, Xerox (HCL), Cyber-Duck and Knight Design Innovation. They tend to employ leaders who understand the value of design and manage creative processes to achieve successful business outcomes.

From our 19th century origins as a design school that is focused on industry and manufacturing, we have produced design leaders and innovators in their fields; our graduates have secured work in design consultancies and manufacturing industries worldwide. A recognised centre of excellence, the department of Industrial Design was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education in 2008 and the Sir Misha Black Award for Innovation in Design Education in 2007.
