A world of opportunity

Design is a creative process that leads to the great value that professionals add when faced with a complex problem to solve. The outcome may be an object, a space, a strategy, a way of communicating a message or almost anything. However, the results always go beyond the merely functional and are comprehensive, sustainable, technologically appropriate, aesthetically pleasing and user-centered.

Designers for the future

Students will be able to work at a wide range of areas. Whether you are inspired by service design, user experience (UX), visual design, digital product or interior design, as an IE University Design graduate, you will be more than prepared to use your expertise in a design driven company, in your own studio or as consultant to help traditional companies on innovating. Below you will find some of the areas you can specialize in:


If you choose this area, you will be able to create services that are useful, desirable, efficient and effective to people. You can work as a strategic design manager or communication designer. If you prefer a role closer to technology, you can also work as a processes & services designer or even as an intelligent systems designer.


If you are interested in improving the interaction between a product and a user you can work as a user experience designer, interaction designer, a UX researcher or even a motion designer.


If you would rather focus on the look and feel of products and services, you can work as a creative graphic designer, a digital illustrator or even specialize in packaging. If you prefer to work with a broader scope, you can also become an art director.


If digital products such as websites and apps are what you are passionate about, you can work as a digital product designer. You can also focus on designing and prototyping physical and meaningful objects and products.


If you prefer to have an impact on a larger scale as a designer, and plan the interior spaces where people work, live or shop, you can work as a interior designer.
