Design, innovation and technology


The programme explores the strategic use of design, innovation and technology. It looks at how the application of these components put people at the heart of new business models, brand innovations, technological transformation and social change.

As part of the postgraduate department, you can:

  • Work with leading professionals and organisations on ‘live’ projects – with a focus on accelerating professional opportunities.
  • Develop powerful research skills in the areas of ethnographic research, facilitation methods, co-creation and business consultancy methods.
  • Learn practical design skills using rapid prototyping, community organising, visualisation and storytelling. You'll learn to use these tools to design new services and organisational models – combining research with leadership and advocacy.
  • Develop your own creative venture through our entrepreneurial incubation programme for start-ups and gain access to its unique mentorship programme.
