New MA Applied Innovation course at Sunderland University

New MA Applied Innovation course starting in September at Sunderland University

This exciting course will equip you with skills and knowledge in design thinking and strategic innovation. In a world where organisations are having to adapt faster than ever in order to survive, MA Applied Innovation offers great potential for opening doors to fascinating and rewarding jobs.

From day one of the course you’ll explore systematic processes for innovation, design and evaluation. Working partly in a design studio, you’ll develop your own prototypes and concepts, gaining hands-on experience of sustainable and holistic approaches. You’ll work both individually and as part of a team, and you’ll be taught by a unique mix of the University’s arts and creative and business and management academics.

Study loans are now available for this programme which aims at unlocking creativity and innovation across all kinds of businesses.
