Bachelor’s & Master’s Program in Design, Business & Technology Management

Design has a new role to play in addressing the world’s ever more complex challenges and is moving from a largely “additive” to a “transformative” role.

The essence of the design process is becoming an increasingly important component, not only of the classical design arts, but is spreading into technology and business sectors.

The new business and economic models and ever-expanding global connections require a new generation of creative thinkers that can design, manage and anticipate our needs.

What is DBTM?

The integrated Bachelor’s and Master’s Program in Design, Business & Technology Management (DBTM) at Thammasat University is a joint effort of the Faculty of Architecture and Planning, Thammasat Business School, and the School of Engineering & Environment at Northumbria University in England.

The intent of the program is to teach students not only how to create innovative products, services, and strategies, but also how to help organizations develop new business models for the future. DBTM’s mission is to nurture a new generation of professional pioneers that have the vision and the skills needed to respond to the challenges of our increasingly complex global society in a sustainable and ethical manner.

The DBTM program bridges the disciplines of design, business and technology management and focuses on interdisciplinary collaboration and the integration of design thinking in all levels of strategy, planning and management. It emphasizes the importance of design as a core factor for innovation while developing a broader range of competencies in order to promote a deeper understanding of transformative issues that are affecting innovation.

How is the program taught?

The integrated DBTM program is a 3.5-year bachelor’s and a 1.5-year master’s program.

It encompasses a wide array of courses that emphasize interdisciplinary collaboration, hands-on experience and the integration of design thinking in all aspects of the curriculum. Free elective studies are chosen from the curriculum offered by Thammasat University; other alternatives include exchange programs at one of the partner universities.

The three-and-a-half-year bachelor’s curriculum incorporates a wide array of courses such as History of Art, Value Creation Economics, Storytelling and Visual Communication, Psychology for Design, Business Planning, Marketing Research, Environmental Technology, Information Technology and Management, and the core innovation workshops such as Inclusive Design Innovation, Eco-Design Innovation and Service Design Innovation.

DBTM will also bring together the most experienced educators and practitioners from different innovative organizations and businesses. With these academic-corporate partners, students will have an opportunity to learn and collaborate with an exclusive and diverse network while exploring potential career paths for practical internship.

The one-and-a-half-year master’s program provides the students with the opportunity to focus in more depth on issues such as sustainability, research methodologies and management before integrating the acquired knowledge in their final thesis/ individual study. At the master’s level, students will have the opportunity to join exchange programs with an international partner university or institution.

DBTM nurtures a creative learning experience through discussion-based courses, case studies, and project-based learning, emphasizing both individual and team work.

What are the career prospects?

DBTM students will graduate with a solid foundation in design, business and technology management which enables them to create their own career trajectory rather than following established paths. The combination of conceptual, technical and managerial skills enables them to conceptualize and shape innovative solutions, which in turn ensure the competitiveness of the business they work in.

Graduates can enjoy a range of career opportunities, including starting their own businesses, managing creative projects and design-driven organizations, incubating and developing new products, services and business strategies, and becoming innovative leaders in the emerging creative economy.
