Design management encompasses the ongoing processes, business decisions, and strategies that enable innovation and create effectively-designed products, services, communications, environments, and brands that enhance our quality of life and provide organizational success.
On a deeper level, it seeks to link design, innovation, technology, management and customers to provide competitive advantage across the triple bottom line: economic, social/cultural, and environmental factors. It is the art and science of empowering design to enhance collaboration and synergy between “design” and “business” to improve design effectiveness.
The design management major offers our students the opportunity to study design in the broader context of entrepreneurship and management of the creative process.
Our program is the only program of its kind in the region.
The scope of design management ranges from the tactical management of corporate design functions and design agencies, including design operations, staff, methods, and processes—to the strategic advocacy of design across the organization as a key differentiator and driver of organizational success. It includes the use of design thinking—or using design processes to solve general business problems.
As leading practitioners of design management and design leadership, you will be actively engaged in design thinking and manage the industrial design, graphic design, service design, environment design, brand identity, fashion design, interface design, interior design, experience design, architecture, and engineering.
The objective of design management is to develop and maintain an efficient business environment in which an organization can achieve its strategic and mission goals through design.
