The Master of Design: Design Innovation (MDes) program at MassArt is a full-time, two-year (60 credit hours) graduate program that prepares the next generation of innovators to lead organizational and social transformation at corporations, nonprofits, educational institutions, and entrepreneurial ventures.
Emphasizing four key skill areas (empathy, analysis, contextual understanding, and communication), the curriculum is designed to teach students how to effectively define and solve a problem, and to impart critical leadership skills for mobilizing and motivating teams toward successful outcomes.
Graduates of the MDes program will be poised to lead in organizational and social transformation, as service designers, experience designers, design strategists and innovation leaders in corporations, nonprofits, educational institutions, or entrepreneurial ventures.
Bootcamp sets the expectations for the MDes graduate students’ upcoming year. During this offsite team-building retreat, students work on leadership and supporting roles in developing and proposing solutions to a variety of challenges.
