Master in Design for Work, Retail and Learning Environments

Program Description

The IE Master in Design for Work, Retail and Learning Environments is a forward thinking graduate 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.

This pioneering program stretches across traditional boundaries relying on analyses, skills and strategies for understanding and proposing creative ideas for changing environments. The program focuses on three types of space – work, retail and learning – where the most dramatic changes are occurring in terms of concepts, technology and cutting-edge innovation.

The program takes place over one year and includes residential modules in Madrid and London, combined with online interactive teaching in between. This blended way of teaching allows students to keep working whilst undertaking the program, thus allowing them to apply the received instruction within their professional activity.

The Master will start its fourth intake in February 2017, with an international body of students that, in the previous intakes, has come from more than twelve different countries and three different continents.

The program courses are delivered by professors and top-tier guest lecturers coming from relevant architectural practices and consultancies around the world.

The program has been developed in partnership with the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, a cutting edge research centre within the Royal College of Art, London, with a focus on workplace and user-centered design.

IE School of Architecture & Design is a design school based in Madrid and Segovia. It is the ‘daughter’ school of IE Business School, one of the best-ranked institutions in the world.

MRes (Masters in Research) Architecture Pathway

Program Description

The MRes Pathway in the School of Architecture offers training in practice-based research methods for critical studies of spatial design. Situated within the Royal College of Art, a world-leading art and design institution, the pathway encourages interdisciplinary research and generates architectural knowledge outside traditional disciplinary domains. This approach is especially relevant to changing patterns of work.

The MRes Architecture Pathway is organised around a series of collective and individual ‘live projects’, in which students collaborate with an external network of partners. A Future of Work and Workplace specialism, in partnership with WORKTECH Academy, will enable students to explore relevant questions in the field.

Key features of the programme:

A range of specialisms that focus on the interface of research and practice

Training in practice-led research by working on ‘live’ case studies within the field with leading external partners

The only MRes in Architecture offered within a world-leading art and design university, providing knowledge of interdisciplinary research methods

Development of advanced research skills and support for an individual research project that prepares graduates for further studies at PhD level

Students become part of a vibrant research community at the RCA and within London
