Brunel University London

Course Introduction

The Design and Branding Strategy MA degree focuses on using design to address key issues in branding. It examines how design thinking can develop a new brand, or improve or expand an existing brand and enhance customer engagement. It aims to produce master?s qualified creative design management graduates capable of making a major contribution to the use of design in branding practices in organisations, both large and small. You?ll have access to modern teaching and learning facilities, including a dedicated master?s design studio. Here you can discuss and exchange ideas with other students passionate about design management and design-led branding strategy.

The popular, annual Design Master?s: Industry Student Review Evening is a great opportunity for you to connect with experts from design, brand and business. Their professional and practical perspective will help you to build a strong and clear direction for your research projects and dissertation. And there?s Made in Brunel - a unique, student-led initiative that showcases our design talent at its finest. Each year our students run a series of industry and community events leading up to the Made in Brunel exhibition. This annual showcase is a highlight of the London design calendar and promotes the incredible work our students produce to the creative community, and is your chance to network with key design professionals.
