How it works

DSA is one of the greatest places if you want to develop yourself professionally. The experience I have gained from this course is definitely an important stepping stone in progressing my career.

Our program of learning is flexible–online and face to face. This allows Morphosis employees to develop their competencies and goals at their own pace in their own time. The delivery of learning is practice-based with challenge activities designed to encourage self-directed enquiry and design criticality.
Why it works
Creative talent is a precious commodity. Whilst organisations appreciate raw skill and professionalism, designers should be able respond to understanding the business objectives of the professional practice of design. Co-creation and working as an interdisciplinary team is at the heart of this. It’s all about collaboration.
Empathy for end users is not enough in a very competitive digital product market too. Creative talent requires mentorship in this respect. Acknowledging that design expertise is not enough. DSAs program supports this learning and development through the lens of design business leadership.
This is in response to the widening gap between higher education and industry. We believe that work-integrated learning should be embedded to nurture life-long learning at Morphosis.
In this respect the course will be enormously beneficial to support Morphosis’s early professionals understand the broader context of the professional practice of design in terms of how to fix problems for management, clients and customers. We’ve written this program for you. Not everyone. For you.
