Our education, healthcare and primary production systems, our workplaces and our products need to keep up. We need design leaders, design strategists and design thinkers to dismantle these structures, and to dissect and solve some of our most complex problems.Whether it’s rethinking the way remote communities access healthcare, creating a less risk-averse corporate culture, or developing a more individualised education system, our world needs more innovative thinkers and communicators; people with the knowledge and skills to design our future.The Master of Design Futures is an accelerated, graduate qualification for working professionals. It is suitable for both designers and non-designers who are looking to transition into new design practices and for those wanting to advance their careers in strategic leadership roles.In this flexible and self-directed degree, you will benefit from experiential learning practices as you develop the strategic skills and tools required for leadership. Empathic research, journey mapping, rapid prototyping and storytelling are all tools that you will learn to use in your problem solving process.
