Our mission is to educate thoughtful designers with the capacity of finding creative and sustainable solutions in our modern society with its saturated market of products and services. Through a global design program our students learn to master traditional, modern and hyper-modern design tools based upon the fundamental reflections of Design Thinking. Being part of a Business School unit, KEDGE DESIGN SCHOOL inspires and generates business innovation, which is the basement of social wealth and responsible development.
We strongly recommend at least two international periods during the five year study cursus. Outgoing students do chose between academic semesters at partner universities or international internships.
