The Master in Service Design at POLI.design – Milan (Italy) is an international training programme – taught entirely in English – focused on a user-centred approach, and the development of service ideas from contextual research to prototyping.
The overall idea behind the Master stems from the awareness of the significant changes that have occurred in the development and delivery of services and products by companies and public-sector organizations, and the radical impact that these changes are producing on professional skills and corporate capabilities.
It is thus essential to train professionals who can build and manage new physical and virtual patterns of service experience and interaction.
The complexity of conceiving, developing, and delivering a service requires innovation culture, creative thinking, and cultural exchange.
I heard about Service Design about 3 years ago, in Chile (my home country), while I was working as an independent designer and I was searching for a professional path to follow. In this search I started working in a non-profit foundation where I fell in love of the Public and Social Service, and I knew that I could combine Design and services from a Service Design perspective. I decided that I wanted to become a Service Designer. This Master has given me new skills and knowledge to confront the different opportunities and challenges that the public and social service will present to me, allowing me to make and impact in society, and improving the quality of live and services around the world.
