Design management focuses on the design process and visual communication from the viewpoints of business economics and management. The courses form a whole that proceeds from understanding company images to strategic planning and brand management. The studies consist of mandatory design, marketing, and management courses as well as company projects implemented as inter-subject group work.
Design management is a suitable minor subject for students of business economics, tourism research, and art. It is also good for those interested in service design and for those who want to combine business and art.
At the University of Lapland, design management can be studied as basic studies (25 cr.) and subject studies (35 cr.), amounting to a total of 60 credits. The courses and their descriptions can be found at WebOodi. The subject is taught in cooperation with the Faculty of Art and Design
