Student Name: Natasha Sutton

Course Studied: MDes Design Management

I’ve been working in the design industry for seven years and although I did my first degree in graphic design, I prefer working with clients and being involved in management than designing.

Because of this I was conscious that I have no formal education in design management; the companies I’ve worked for were all small and had their own management styles. I was looking for something that could make sense of all this.

I was attracted to the Ravensbourne MDes because it allows me to study part-time one day a week. The course has lived up to my expectations as I’ve been challenged academically although it’s hard work, the research and theory are challenging but it gives me a focus each week.

Studying part-time also allows me to use my industry experience to experiment, discuss, reflect and contextualise whilst at work.

The course will certainly look good on my CV and help me progress to a senior management position.
