About

We offer a master degree in Design Strategy at California College of the Arts. Ask questions, examine complexity, and innovate for human-centered solutions.

Overview

Our two-year, low-residency MBA in Design Strategy program (DMBA) at California College of the Arts is a graduate business program with five four-day residencies held each month of a semester. 

Key Features 

  • Set against the backdrop of the Bay Area, a region known for its unshakeable belief in a better world, the MBA in Design Strategy trains future leaders to question, listen, and put human needs at the center of decision-making.
  • This is uniquely possible at an art and design college, where we recognize systems are made—not given—and operate with the optimism that systems can be made better. We do much more than analyze balance sheets and come up with marketing plans; we imagine alternate futures and then build them.
