Design is a ubiquitous discipline that extends into every career field. With the increase of social and virtual channels through which to promote company products and brands, a practical knowledge of design, current trends and how they affect corporate practices, is quickly becoming a key component of a good business education.
Under the academic supervision of Pierre Keller, former director of ECAL (École Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne), the Design Management MBA program is the first of its kind at EU. Participants will gain a general understanding of design history and esthetics, as well as learning how to best apply them to good business and management practices.
