Celebrating our 15th anniversary, the MFA Design/Designer as Author + Entrepreneur program, the first graduate design program of its kind, has enabled designers to develop their talents and skills in viable, entrepreneurial ways. Graduates have successfully conceived, developed, produced and marketed unique products in areas as diverse as healthcare, education, communications, entertainment, food, art and social advocacy. Design businesses and partnerships have been launched by alumni who have formed worldwide support networks that enhance professional opportunities. Most of all, the program has redefined the traditional role of designer to include business as a means to realize their ideas, identify audiences and produce products of value for the marketplace.
