Why study the MBA: Design Management

This award aims to develop learners’ potential for progression to a management role with a master’s level understanding of the importance of managing creativity and design in the area of business management. The award is designed to develop a deep understanding of managing design and creativity that is essential to the development of business in the 21st century.

Given the importance of innovation and creativity in business it is essential that future managers understand the challenges and demands in facilitating the development of a creative culture in business. Managing this complex ecology presents important challenges to those people who are tasked to manage the creative process and lead such groups. The design element of the course responds directly to the Cox Report calling for business people, ‘who understand creativity, who know when and how to use the specialist, and who can manage innovation’ (2005:28).

 

What qualifications do I need to apply?

Candidates for entry to the MBA programme must normally possess:

APEL
