Integrated Design, Business and Technology (MS)

The Master of Science in Integrated Design, Business and Technology is an online graduate degree program that provides a first-of-its-kind interdisciplinary education at the intersection of the educational and professional disciplines central to our changing world. The program creates leaders with diverse and creative ways of thinking and doing – trained to recognize and cultivate innovation, catalyze change, and leverage new opportunities to not only support, but also help shape and build our rapidly evolving economy.

This program brings together faculty and experts from across the USC campus. Instructors work in cross-disciplinary teams, covering subjects that include conceiving and developing solutions to complex design, business and technological challenges; using data and research to create a portfolio of problem-solving approaches, and how to manage and adapt to uncertainty.

The Master of Integrated Design, Business and Technology is a master of science degree offered predominantly online and is composed of both asynchronous and synchronous sessions. Students also participate in two week-long residential experiences – the first to be held on the University of Southern California’s campus in Los Angeles and the second at locations across the United States.
