Lauren Currie, Co-founder of Snook, launches new MA at Hyper Island

Hyper Island, a world leading creative business school, is now accepting applications for their new MA in Digital Experience Design. This course has been created in response to a demand from industry.

Hyper Island worked with agencies such as ustwo, Doberman and Dare to co-design the content. Here are the 10 key ingredients that set it apart from other courses out there.

Lauren Currie, is the Programme Manager for the new course. She says: “You might call this type of work service design, experience design, design thinking, system design or even organisational design. Depending on your definition, this approach to solving problems really matters. The urgent complex challenges our communities and business are facing require designers to up their game. This MA will equip you with the skills and talents you need to be a designer in this constantly evening terrain”

Hyper Island was recently described by CNN as school that ‘will help you master every day life’  and the results speak for themselves. With no teachers, no homework and no classrooms Hyper Island’s unique approach to learning leads to graduates going on to work for companies such as Twitter and Adidas.

Graduates on this new MA will work with industry leaders such as AKQA and ustwo, on live client briefs from organisations such as GreenPeace and Google. Learn more about Lauren in this interview where she shares her top tips for entrepreneurship.

You can apply online by submitting your details and documents. All applicants are then reviewed and if selected, invited to an interview with Lauren. If you have any questions or would like to chat about the programme in more detail, please email her on lauren.currie@hyperisland.com.
