The MSc in International Management & Design Innovation will develop your creativity, flexibility, adaptive capacity and your ability to work in complex teams across disciplines. These skills will be put to the test on a consultancy project for a real company. Design innovation is an inclusive and iterative process that facilitates creative solutions to complex issues.
You will be involved in a consultancy project, advising a real company and providing them with a solution to a real business problem, giving you practical experience that will assist you when finding employment.
Career opportunities include professional design/management consultancy, enterprise, management in the private and public sector and further academic study.
The University of Glasgow Business School, The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) and the School of Design run this programme jointly.
You will study and research across a range of areas that will include the principles and procedures of management and the socio-cultural, economic and political perspectives of design. We will encourage you to develop new ideas and to investigate and formulate ways of producing novel solutions.
This programme will develop your ability to confidently apply the methods and techniques of design-led innovation practice as a means of researching, visualising, analysing, resolving and communicating project-based work to a professional audience; demonstrating the value (practical, financial or social) of design-led innovation within a specific context, or organisational environment.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
You should have at least a 2:1 Honours degree or non-UK equivalent (eg, a GPA of 3.0 or above) in management, design or a related subject. Consideration may be given to graduates with design experience. Those who do not have such a background who would like to pursue further studies in the area of Management are advised to apply for MSc Management.
International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.
