Master in Strategic Interior Design

Drive change through strategic interior design
In our ever-changing and unpredictable world, our interior spaces have become more and more important. We are spending about 90% of our time indoors. We have seen an increased blurring of the boundaries between our physical and digital worlds. Interior spaces must adapt to new needs, and be healthful, beautiful, and sustainable at the same time.



10 months






Full Time



Strategic interior designers are needed now more than ever to rethink our interior spaces and come up with strategic solutions for a wide range of functions including corporate, retail, education, hospitality, mixed uses, and beyond. In this Strategic Interior Design program, you will learn how to approach the design of interior spaces taking into account people’s needs, behavior and aspirations, the impact of technology, functionality, and wellness. You will see the connection between well-designed interior spaces and the goals of an organization or business, its people, and its brand. You will learn the tools and techniques you will need to implement your creative ideas. 

Why do we say strategic interior design? Because we know that we must be agile and able to adapt to new situations. Our spaces must meet multiple goals at the same time. We may need to transform existing spaces for new uses or design new interiors for multiple functions. And do all of this to create interiors that keep people and our environment at the forefront.

Or, when an online store opens a brick-and-mortar one, did you know that online sales go up in that geographic area? As e-commerce players are quickly realizing, a symbiotic relationship is often essential for success.
