About Design & Innovation

Our PhD in management brings together the disciplines of information systems and marketing to prepare scholars for path-creating research on consequential issues faced by organizations and managers.

Because traditional boundaries between the economic and the social, between the public and the private, and between management disciplines are becoming blurred, economic elements that had been separate and autonomous are now interconnected and interdependent. As a result, the global market economy requires unrelenting innovations in designing better products, services, interactions and environments.

The guiding principles for PhD studies in the department of Design & Innovation are:

The department plans to recruit four students every year.
