IE Master in Design for Work, Retail and Learning Environments

The Master in Design for Work, Retail and Learning Environments is a forward thinking post-professional program that not only examines the profound changes occurring in environments for work, retail and learning, but also explores the tools and knowledge needed to innovatively design these spaces for the future. The IE Master in Design Work Retail and Learning Environments is a pioneering program as it stretches across traditional boundaries based on analyses, skills and strategies for understanding and proposing creative ideas for changing environments.

The program focuses on three types of space- the work space, retail and learning environments- that are most important for our everyday lives and which are the three realms where the most dramatic changes are occurring in terms of concepts, technology and  cutting-edge innovation.

The aim of the IE SPACES FOR INNOVATION Prize is to attract top architecture and design talents worldwide, evaluating their Story Board, with the ability to foresee the future of the new blurred spaces over the next decade and propose or comment on how to think the activities might evolve.
