Presentation

Packaging is an extension of the product and, therefore, of the brand and the company. It represents an opportunity to create unique brand experiences, and it becomes a part of people’s day-to-day lives. Products, and especially what they convey through their packaging, are becoming an increasingly important resource for companies.

Our Postgraduate Course in Packaging Design and Omnichannel Activation puts forward a training programme that combines theory with practice while tackling strategy, trends—taking into account their impact on digital businesses and media—, creative thinking and graphic design in order to lay solid foundations that will allow designers to design the packaging of the future.

By combining it with the Postgraduate Course in Structural and Sustainable Packaging Design, students can obtain the Master’s Degree in Packaging Strategy and Design. A training package devised to enable students to acquire the specific knowledge of the discipline and allow them to participate in the strategy, creation and management process inherent to comprehensive packaging design.
