MSc UX Design & Digital Business
Inspired by the traditional university model in English speaking countries, the Master of Science, more commonly known as the MSc is a Bac+5 (five years post-secondary education) degree, generally earned in just over a year after the completion of a undergraduate degree, intended for those who hold at least a Bachelor’s degree (Bac+3 or three years post-secondary). It is renowned for its international aspect and its operational approach, which gives graduates a high degree of employability.
The Masters of Science (or MSc) awarded by IPAG combine the academic and scientific requirements of this Online UX Masters Degree with the values and aims of the school, based on promoting a management model that is appropriate for a globalised and constantly changing world. They offer both professional and international aspects. Our graduates can therefore become operational in a job and/or specific business sector immediately.
This MSc in User Experience Design (with Digital Business) is offered in partnership with the ESDAC School of Design, Applied Arts and Communication, located in the centre of Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, Montpellier, Istres, Clermont-Ferrand, Lille, Lyon, Strasbourg and Rennes.

MSc UX DESIGN & DIGITAL BUSINESS To find out more
The growing number of screens, applications, web interfaces and connected objects has completely changed the way we think about and view the user experience. Today, integration of digital in the real world (IRL) has blurred the boundaries between physical and digital, which have made way for "phygital", and UX design now occupies a central position in many companies' communication and marketing strategies. Courses such as our MSc UX Design & Digital Business produce experts in user experience optimisation, who possess competence in both design and management.
User eXperience Design is a user-centred method that is used for the design of websites, software and mobile apps, for example. The aim is to create an optimum navigation experience in terms of usability, ease-of-use and interactivity by using the right architecture, effective page layouts, relevant multimedia content (illustrations, computer graphics, videos, etc.), an efficient information hierarchy and so on.
Today, most companies have integrated the idea of UX Design in their strategic considerations when marketing products or services. They are all, or nearly all, looking for experts who they can trust with the delicate task of creating or improving the UX of their applications or websites. By taking a course such as our MSc, you can acquire all the skills you need to assist these companies. Upon graduating, you will be able to assess and anticipate users' desires, in order to provide them with a positive experience, and manage a UX Design project from A to Z. Beyond this expertise, holding a masters-level qualification will give you a competitive edge on the job market.
Our Master of Science UX Design & Digital Business produces UX Design project managers with a "hybrid" profile (at the crossroads of usage issues and the resulting experiences) by helping them develop dual areas of expertise, complementary skills with the Executive Certificate and soft skills.
Like all students taking our four online Masters of Science, you will follow shared core classes that are split into four modules:
Specialist subjects in our MSc UX Design & Digital Business are related to two main themes:
With the Executive Certificate, you will be able to develop one or more additional areas of expertise by choosing one or more of the following paths:
In order to grow your interpersonal skills and improve your employability, your course is accompanied by fully personalised Soft Skills coaching. Lastly, you will produce and defend a final dissertation, which will demonstrate your expertise in a subject area related to your future career.
Our UX Design & Digital Business Masters, as with all our online Masters of Science, can be taken in one or two years according to your level of education or work experience.
And, if you have none of the above qualifications, you can take our online Masters of Science if you have at least 10 years' work experience.
The enrolment procedure includes assessment of your application (CV, cover letter, proof of identity, academic transcript, etc.) and a half-hour interview. If you have any questions about this procedure, please write to us at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our range of IPAG online courses combine the teaching excellence that our school's reputation has been built on over the past five decades with the advantages offered by online courses (learn where and when you like, at your own pace). The educational content of this MSc has been produced by teacher-researchers and professionals, who are experts in their respective fields, in partnership with ESDAC (school of design, applied arts and communication). From the beginning of your course through to graduation, you will receive personalised, individual support. You will also have the chance to gain work experience with an internship or sandwich placement including four days a week at a company, which is made possible by the online format of this course. Lastly, the value of your qualification – masters-level and RNCP level-7 – awarded by a major business school, combined with the quality of the teaching, will guarantee you a high level of employability.
Until a few years ago, the vast majority of companies called on consultancy firms or independent UX Design consultants when looking to design a showcase website, e-commerce website, new blog or application. Today, however, many are now bringing UX experts into their teams. A UX Design and Digital Business qualification will open up a variety of positions for you, whether in a firm or a company:
Possibility of a work-study programme or long-term internship with a company.
Soft Skills Course
This course is dedicated to employability and the development of behavioural skills, often essential for the role of manager.
After completing a skills assessment with a professional, you will take part in different workshops, depending on your profile: job hunting, writing your CV, writing cover letters, preparing for a job interview or annual appraisal, negotiating or re-negotiating your salary, etc. These are all designed to help you in your new job and, generally, to develop your career.
The MSc course is punctuated with case studies, often in the form of business games, developed by major companies. Thanks to these simulations, you will become more familiar with certain situations that you will face throughout your career.
In addition to your main course, you can earn one of our Executive Certificates to broaden your range of expertise.
