Education Strategies for Leveraging the Design/Business Partnership
Several institutions offer challenging interdisciplinary electives in design management, especially in the area of new product development. Graduate design programs are taking steps to address the interface of design and business. And seminars for design professionals are identifying how these individuals can have a greater impact on corporate decision making. On the other hand, the presence of design management in MBA curricula is declining. Our keynote and other articles outline steps to reverse this situation, highlighting the need for more research and techniques for articulating and sharing design’s value.
