User Experience (UX) is where research and design are applied to create interactions with products, platforms, and services that users love. UX focuses on developing a deep understanding of users, what they need, what they value, their abilities, and also their limitations. This is crucial in both the physical and digital world, and key to designing solutions in the context of the UN SDGs. These UXs are evaluated through needs, values, emotions, and attitudes towards products, systems or services in human-brand interactions, with an emphasis on ethical considerations for a diversity of users. Crucially, students learn to optimize UXs for Accessible (Universal) Design to adhere to important Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) in accordance with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through various Authentic Assessments you will develop skills that are critical in marketing and business. These skills have broader applicability to the fields of graphic design, web and app development, SEO, product or project management, and promotional techniques such as advertising, or content marketing.
