About this program
Through POLI.design, the Politecnico di Milano devotes a specialized upper-level training programme to Service Design.
The Master in Service Design is an international training programme – taught entirely in English – focused on a user-centred approach, and the development of service ideas from contextual research to prototyping.
The overall idea behind the Master stems from the awareness of the significant changes that have occurred in the development and delivery of services and products by companies and public-sector organizations, and the radical impact that these changes are producing on professional skills and corporate capabilities.
It is thus essential to train professionals who can build and manage new physical and virtual patterns of service experience and interaction.
The complexity of conceiving, developing, and delivering a service requires innovation culture, creative thinking, and cultural exchange.
