Founded by the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) and nine Dutch creative agencies (dentsuACHTUNG! mcgarrybowen, BBDO Amsterdam, DDB Unlimited, Dept, Fabrique, MediaMonks, Mirabeau, Momkai, and Woedend!), the Master’s programme in Digital Design is a knowledge hub that enables students to become future design leaders and partners to drive change through design.
Our unique design mentality stems from the belief that successful design results in impact, empathy, and accuracy, with adequate regards to new technologies and trends.
It is our mission to advance the practice of digital design in The Netherlands by connecting creativity with science.
Every year we welcome 48 students from across the globe, who are chosen through a rigorous selection from hundreds of applications. Over the course of the Master’s programme, students are grouped in multidisciplinary teams who work on projects reflecting societal challenges. These teams cover different aspects of design such as the aesthetics and usability of UX/UI, with an eye to research and strategy.
Our students are critical, reflective, empathic professionals who adapt processes, are able to drive (social) change and have an ethical perspective about the work they do.
Our partners are companies and organisations open to the design challenges of the digital age. They wish to embrace and advance in the education of future digital design leaders.
It is our ambition to work with a variety of sectors and representative segments of society: from cultural institutions to multinacionals; from non-profits to agencies.
We welcome several types of partnerships:
. Members – access to talent to and exclusive events through small contributions
. Supporters – influence on topics to be approached during the year
. Sponsor – exclusive partnership with full access and name attached to programme
. Project Partners – briefs that our students work on
