Our students come from various disciplines including industrial design, graphic design, communication and information design, interior design, interactive media design, architecture, and fashion design. They work for – or go on to work for – corporations, design firms, educational institutions, and government. Design Managers practice industrial design, graphic design, service design, environment design, brand identity, or interface design, among others.
How well equipped must a Design Manager be as a designer? How good must a MPS recipient be to be taken seriously as a Design Manager? These are unresolved questions. But a good balance between Design and Management is probably the right answer. An MBA is just business. A DM isn’t just business.
