Graduate Certificate in Design Business

Format: Online

Program Description:

The graduate certificate in Business of Design enables students to formulate strategic responses to the ongoing restructuring of the global economy. The program challenges students to develop new business frameworks using the design thinking, entrepreneurial focus, and foundation in social responsibility for which Parsons is known.

The program is particularly well suited to early- to mid-career professionals in creative fields, innovation-focused companies, and firms that routinely employ design, as well as business professionals seeking to complement their design and business skills with practical application. Because the certificate can be completed entirely online, it's ideal for students who want access to Parsons' faculty of experienced practitioners from New York City and around the world but cannot come to New York City to study.

The Business of Design graduate certificate is an 18-credit program that exposes students to issues and contexts relevant to the creation and management of design-driven organizations. This certificate program, which can be taken online or on campus, provides quick and convenient training in state-of-the-art best practices in management, leadership, and entrepreneurship for the evolving new economy.
