This programme is primarily for design graduates, however those from business backgrounds, or with industry experience, are also encouraged to apply. Students are able to undertake live projects and briefs, work with industry and research practitioners, and attend a wide range of presentations across the course, college and university.

The course supports global perspectives, and students are encouraged to apply business and theoretical models to their own experience and future career ambitions. The majority of students will enter roles in industry in either large and medium'sized companies, or entrepreneurial start'ups.
