Why did you choose MD+I?

After completing my UI/ UX certification, I wanted to transition into a more creative role and started looking for master’s programs that’d help me achieve this. I chose MDI because I found the elective courses very interesting. The duration of the program was also one of the factors.

What is your favorite part of MD+I so far?

I like how we’ve been able to use so many different technologies and software. The program isn’t structured like most regular courses. There’s a lot of freedom and a chance of exploration in everything that we do.

What kinds of professional and personal trajectories are you setting for yourself at the moment? Where do you hope to go after graduation?

Upon completion of the program, I do want to gain relevant industry experience to put to use the skills I’ve learned in the program. I look to go into design strategy roles that combine management and life-centered design to solve problems.
