Amsterdam, The Netherlands – IE University’s Master in Business for Architecture and Design is a leading global programme that trains professionals with the skills and knowledge they need in management, entrepreneurship and innovation, all aligned within a single vision: business and design are stronger together.                                                

IE School of Architecture and Design is the first higher education institution in the world to offer a Master in Business for Architecture and Design (MBArch). The programme encompasses the experience accumulated through the school’s more than a decade of educational leadership at the intersection of design and management.            

Martha Thorne, Dean of IE School of Architecture and Design said: “I can’t think of any other firm as forward-thinking and ideal for this collaboration. UNStudio and UNSense are exemplary in reorienting the profession to make real, positive impacts in our communities and cities.”                                                                       

One of the main objectives of the school is to educate architects and designers to acquire knowledge and understanding of other fields in order to be effective across industries. Facing complex global challenges, higher education needs to empower architects and designers to fulfill new and expanded roles.
