Why choose this course?
During your studies, you will have the opportunity to apply contemporary management and design thinking in a professional context, helping you to compete in the growing global markets using your creativity, strategy and management theory.
The key to successful brand development is an understanding of business strategy in relation to design as well as a diverse and inquisitive mind that seeks to understand the relationships involved in incremental or radical innovation.
