Masterclass Product Design: Guide to the World's Leading Graduate Schools

Sarah de Boer-Schultz, Carmel McNamara, Marlous van Rossum-Willems

Aimed at current bachelor students, recent graduates, and professionals looking for a specialization, Masterclass Product Design provides an in-depth overview of 30 leading design schools from all over the world that offer a master's degree in product design.

The featured schools are selected based on a list of criteria including the quality of the graduation work, the employability and success of former students, the list of faculty, and their reputation in the design industry. Each school is explored extensively on ten pages that contain an introduction by the dean, photographs of the school's interior and exterior, a description of the course, application details and requirements, recent graduation work photography, student demographics, faculty and alumni lists, an interview with a successful alumnus, information about the school's location regarding housing, transportation, and the cultural scene, and more.

All this information results in a very clear impression of what the selected schools have to offer on every thinkable front that is relevant to the potential student. A world map, indicating the demographic spread of included schools, a comparison table, and a notebook section for the students' own research complete this guide.
