These days you need more than bright ideas and creativity in the contemporary design scene. Knowledge of markets and a sound grasp of finances are just as vital if you want to be a successful designer. This course, the first of its kind in Malaysia, gives you the competitive edge so that you can become a designpreneur with innovative solutions to problems involving design.

Master the basics such as visual scripting, sustainable designing as well as fashion and store merchandising. Gain practical experience as you conceptualise and acquire the basic techniques in realising your ideas. Even more significantly, you learn business management skills to start up your own enterprise instead of having to search for jobs within the industry.

You can be assured that our programmes meet professional standards as our key partner is Malaysia Design Council (MRM). Our affiliation with this reputable professional body makes possible a greater exchange of ideas in design education and recognition for the young talents that KDU UC aims to nurture for the creative economy.
