Multidisciplinary Innovation

**Do you want to make yourself more employable by taking a highly practical Masters programme where you get to work on live projects with real organisations and learn to think in new ways?** The MA/MSc Multidisciplinary Innovation is a totally unique Masters programme. You will work in a simulated agency environment to devise innovative approaches to challenges faced by external organisations, ranging from multinationals like Mars and Unilever, to local start-ups and charities. Coupled with an academic grounding in design-led innovation practice, working on real projects with external organisations will help you learn how to create strategic value through adapting a range of innovation approaches and resources. Working on these projects will also allow you to build up an invaluable portfolio of experience and a network of contacts which spans multiple industries. Previous graduates have secured senior roles with large organisations, started their own businesses or gone on to PhD study. We welcome graduates from all disciplines who are keen to develop the capacity and practical tools to engineer change and develop skills which will be of demonstrable value to future employers.
