The Master's Degree in Retail Design will allow you to acquire the necessary knowledge in strategy, technological innovation and visual merchandising to respond to point of sale design in a constantly changing sector.

What do you have to bear in mind when creating your own spaces for brands? In the Master in Retail Space: Retail Design you will learn how to apply the design to a commercial space.

The Master in Retail Space: Retail Design is intended for professionals who wish to acquire complete knowledge in the field of commercial design: from small-scale design and new formats to large-scale design, from boutiques to large multinational brands, we will learn how the differences are applied in each scenario, working directly with real brands and company briefings.

The invited companies are, among others, Antonio Miro, World Duty Free, IKEA, SONY, Swarovski, Vitra, Tous, MUJI and Nike.

Most areas of the Master are covered with theory and practice cases. Importance is given to the analysis and study of trends and innovation in the market and society to get a close-up view of the elements in designing a retail space arena (new formats, space, communication, flow, exhibition, virtual aspects, sensory perceptions, etc.). Art and analysis are the basis of any project and the concept and projection of space. We make every effort so students come away with the highest standards and ability to work with the most demanding companies in the market.
