Massachusetts College of Art and Design Announces New Master of Design in Design Innovation Program

BOSTON, Sept. 10, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) announces the launch of a Master of Design Innovation (MDes) program. The MDes program integrates deep expertise in design practice with business discipline in a broad-based curriculum that uses market challenges and social initiatives as the context for learning. The program is a full-time, two-year (60 credit hours) interdisciplinary course of study intended for those who want to lead the design and planning of new products, services, environments, and experiences. 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 design strategists and innovation leaders in corporations, nonprofits, educational institutions, or entrepreneurial ventures. The MassArt MDes program is accredited by NASAD (National Association of Schools of Art and Design) and will be among the first of its kind in the state of Massachusetts. This program expands on MassArt's mission to fuel the creative economy in Massachusetts, utilizing the arts as a force in the economy and the innovation sector.
