Today’s enormous competitiveness means that companies constantly have to distinguish their products and services on the market. In fact, the last survey of the Boston Consulting Group indicates that innovation is the main concern of general managers.

The Design Thinking Master degree is conceived to fill this gap in the jobs market. Its aim is to create innovation professionals who have the necessary conceptual and practical tools to successfully develop processes of innovation and design thinking in companies, focusing on the use of the tools and techniques of design thinking, practising techniques of empathy to put themselves in the shoes of potential customers and detecting unsatisfied needs, developing their creativity and applying it in solving real business problems and reflecting on their own profile as potential professionals of innovation, and especially their attitude towards risk, error and uncertainty.
