Design Management (Level 6 | Top-up) – BA (Hons)
Attendance Full Time (1 year)
Design managers are responsible for the management of design projects, teams, contracts and the operational practice of design.
This may involve work within corporate in-house design teams or external design consultancy. Design managers have strong communication, project management and interpersonal skills.
What’s covered in the course?
The BA (Hons) Design Management Level 6 course is designed to develop your professional, creative, communication, research, critical thinking and analytical skills, whilst developing your confidence, for progression into employment, or postgraduate study.
While you will retain links with design practice, you will step into a challenging environment, which reflects as closely as possible the ways of working, the practices and the behaviours that operate in the design profession.
How you will learn
You will be involved in complex problem solving, you will work individually and in team-based activities, whilst developing your negotiation and people management skills.
You will also be expected to work with external contributors, staff and students from a range of disciplines and cultures in a professional and accountable way. The course will be taught by staff in lecture, workshop and activity-based settings. This will include specialist guest lectures, project briefings and group critiques supported by industry.
We encourage you to consider studying your first two years within Birmingham School of Architecture and Design before selecting the BA (Hons) Design Management Level 6 top-up course. The School offers industry accredited courses across the design spectrum, including Architecture, Interior Architecture and Design, Landscape Architecture, and Product and Furniture Design.
