Programme Overview

This masters programme is offered by The University of Glasgow and taught in partnership with The Glasgow School of Art.

The programme is delivered over one year, in three stages of 15 weeks via a series of taught workshops, tutorials, set and elective projects, lecture and seminar based sessions and self-directed learning. The emphasis of the programme rationale is on the interplay between user-led practices of design innovation, underpinned by theoretical research, and the social, technological and economic context of contemporary management and design practice. Students will be expected to engage in a high level of self-directed learning, research and independent critical reflection, as well as participating in the taught elements of the course of study.

This programme prepares students for three potential exit points: entry into a professional design/management consultancy environment; work as an independent consultant; start-up enterprise; entry level management post in MNC, SME and public sector; further academic study by research.
