Course Content

Berghs Advanced consists of four mandatory courses that all students attend and one elective course.

Core courses (mandatory):
• The Future of Marketing is built on Berghs’ 2018 trend report and provides students with the latest successful cases from the global communication industry. You deconstruct cases and apply learnings to new projects, understanding the underlying principles of communication that really speaks to people.

• Idea & Concept Development teaches students to harness their creativity for professional use. Guided by a Creative Director, the students find both inspiration and structure for their creative work. The course consists of a series of playful assignments and rational exercises where ideas grow into concepts.

• Prototyping is a hands-on course where Berghs’ unique pedagogy joins forces with the Stockholm start-up world. The students learn the key stages of service design and prototype their own ideas. The course uses the lean startup methodology and an iterative process to launch and implement real products.

• Pitch. Students learn how to sell their creative work. The course focuses mainly on two aspects: how to make great presentation material and how to deliver the perfect pitch.

Elective courses (choose one of the following):
• UX Design. The course teaches the key principles of user experience design and provides students with practical tools for improving the efficiency of digital products. You learn key concepts and terminology and work with user tests, personas, wireframes, and responsive design.

• Data-driven Strategy. The course teaches students analytics and trains them to use data to set strategies. The focus is on performance analysis and improvement.

The two elective courses share a common project where strategy and design go hand in hand.
