Multidisciplinary Innovation

This course is for people who desire positive change in the world and, crucially, the capacity and practical tools to achieve it. We welcome graduates from all disciplines who are ambitious to build futures that are resilient and deliver positive social impact. You'll learn how to create strategic value through adapting a range of innovation approaches and resources. Our design-led practice focuses on exploring deep insights, co-creating strategies and developing creative functionality. During the course you'll tackle a series of real-world projects in collaboration with external organisations and enterprises. You'll work in teams both with other students and professionals, creating value through smarter policies, processes, products, services and communications. At the end of the course some of our graduates move into roles that are specifically focused on innovation while others start their own businesses. You'll also be able to use your master's degree to develop long-held career aspirations and accelerate promotion to significant positions of leadership.
