Creating value for organisations

Executive Master’s Degree of 1st level

A new professional figure

The complex social, environmental and economic challenges of the near future require the intervention of new professional figures able to reorient the organisations along the directives of responsibility and social relevance.

The executive master’s degree in Design, Creativity and Social Practices, born of the collaboration between Milan’s Polytechnic and Accademia UNIDEE, is dedicated to professionals intending to acquire the necessary skills to carry out this transformation within their work contexts. An immersive experience providing practical and teamwork competencies, relying on the collaboration of Italian and international institutions from the field of social innovation and social engagement.

The objectives

The programme declines social and environmental engagement into a profession creating value for organisations. The proposed method integrates design skills with the ability to interpret and elaborate that characterises art for social transformation, and develops on various forms of critical thought, on notions of economics, on models of inclusive communication and on contemporary organisation.

The objective is to provide methods and instruments suitable to respond to contemporary challenges through the use of strategies defining the whole planning process, from the identification of the problem to the development of the solution. These skills will be accompanied by the necessary technical-economic knowledge to evaluate the social impacts that might be generated and to manage future projects.
