    Application Instructions

    The Global Executive Master of Science in Strategic Design and Management is administered through Parsons School of Design's main campus in New York City, with a series of weekend workshops based at our Parsons Paris location. When starting your application online, please select "Parsons School of Design" in the "School" field (not Parsons Paris). From there, for the "Program/Major" field, you will have the opportunity to select "Global Executive Strategic Design and Management."

    All applicants are required to apply online. Save your work frequently and print a copy for your records. You must complete all required fields and uploads prior to submission.

    Any additional supporting documents that need to be sent by mail must include an Application Materials Cover Sheet. All supporting materials must be received before your application can be reviewed.

    See below for additional information regarding submission of transcripts and recommendations.

    1. In addition to submitting the online application, applicants can submit an optional portfolio using SlideRoom.
    2. Finalize your portfolio at the time you submit your application. This will help prevent any delays in reviewing your application, as we need to receive all required materials before we can place your application under review.
    3. Once you have submitted the SlideRoom materials, a confirmation number will be emailed to you. Save this for your records and enter it on the online application when requested.

    Required Application Materials

    1. Application Form: Complete the online application. All applicants are required to apply online.
    2. Application Fee: A nonrefundable $50 application fee paid as part of the online application. A $10 SlideRoom fee will be applied if you submit a portfolio.
    3. Transcripts:
      Unofficial Transcripts: Applicants must upload an unofficial transcript, mark sheet, or academic record for each institution (even if you didn’t receive a degree) in the Educational Background section of the online application.
      • All transcript uploads must be accompanied by a key, a legend, or the back copy of the transcript.
      • Non-English transcripts must be accompanied by an English translation. Records from non-U.S. institutions must have grades or marks and contain a copy of the diploma if the degree has been conferred.

Admitted applicants must submit all official transcripts pertaining to their entire academic career.

      Your offer of admission will be contingent upon the receipt and verification of these official documents. New students will not be permitted to register for their second semester of study until all official transcripts (including degree-awarding transcripts) have been received by the Office of Graduate Admission. Transcripts uploaded with the online application do not satisfy this requirement.

Please note: In some cases, a review cannot be made without an evaluation, and a committee decision will be delayed. The Admission Office reserves the right to request a transcript evaluation if necessary.

      If using WES, visit www.wes.org for instructions and to begin the application process. The “Required Documents” section will explain what to send. If you request your report online, search for “The New School” when selecting our institution. WES will send your completed evaluation directly to The New School.

    5. Statement of Purpose: Please outline your reasons for applying to this program. In what ways will you contribute to the subject matter of the program? How have your specific work experiences in design, business, consulting, or nonprofit organizations shaped your motivation for this program and the resulting professional goals?

Recommendation Letters: You are required to submit two letters of recommendation from faculty or people with whom you have worked professionally, including at least one from your current supervisor at work. Recommenders can submit recommendations online; instructions are included with the online application. If preferred, the recommendation form can instead be sent by mail in a signed, sealed envelope. To send by mail, download the PDF recommendation form found in the online application, complete the personal information, save the form, and forward it to the recommender for completion and submission. Applicants can also send signed and sealed recommendations to the Office of Admission using an Application Materials Cover Sheet.
    7. Program Essay: A personal essay of 500–1,000 words must accompany the application. The essay must identify your motivation for study in the program by addressing the following topics in an integrated manner (i.e., do not simply provide answers to the bullet points, but develop an integrated and flowing argument):
      • How have your specific work experiences in design, business, consulting, or nonprofit organizations shaped your motivation for this program and the resulting professional goals?
      • Why do you think of yourself as a game changer in your current organization, and why do you think this program will enhance your attributes as an innovator, strategist, or leader in your career?
      • What are some specific critical experiences you have had as part of a team or work group that shaped your understanding of the complexities of professional collaboration, organizational reality, and economic irrationality?
      • What are three things that you can already tell us about the future importance of design thinking?
      • How would you describe this program and your ambition for study in this new field to your friends, family, current employer, and colleagues?
      • What specifically excites you about the Global Executive program, with its integrated online study and global experiences in Paris, New York, and Shanghai?
      Please note that this essay is not simply a biographical statement, nor is it a writing sample. You will be evaluated on the quality of articulation of your academic and professional preparedness, your consideration of critical issues, and your inspirational and transformational abilities and attributes.
    8. Portfolio (Optional): You can submit a portfolio with your application—note that this is optional. The portfolio must be completed in SlideRoom only and is limited to ten examples of design or management work. The items must be directly related to your motivation for studies in the program and must be integrated with the topics of your program essay. The visuals should contain enough of an explanation to allow the reviewers to identify your understanding of the design principles, methods, processes, and projects that you chose to represent.
    9. Test Scores:
      GRE and GMAT (Optional): Although it is not required, if you took the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), scores can be submitted to support your application. GRE scores should be sent electronically. The institution code is 2638. Mail GMAT scores to the Office of Admission with an Application Materials Cover Sheet. The absence of a GRE or GMAT score will not reduce your chances of gaining admission to the program.

      TOEFL, IELTS, and PTE: All applicants whose first language is not English must submit valid TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE scores. The minimum score required for TOEFL (IBT) is 92, for IELTS is 7.0, and for PTE is 63. Our TOEFL institution code is 2638.

      The New School does not require TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE scores for applicants:

    FAQ

    Why this program and not a regular MBA?

    You will be a part of a select cohort of peers working in industries and in positions at the intersection of design, innovation, and business. In addition, you will study management topics in the context of design-driven processes and innovation, in both local and global settings. Finally, and most important, you will learn about the management of design and innovation not just through an add-on "elective" or "concentration," but in depth and throughout the program.

    Our innovative module-based format is both immersive and flexible, specially tailored to meet the learning styles and preferences of today’s working professional. 

    Spanning a year and a half, the program kicks off with intensives at our Paris campus, interspersed with immersive weekends of accelerated learning and supplemental integrative week-long studio intensives in New York and Shanghai. It has a cohort-based, one-course-at-a-time model that provides a supportive community, a clear path to completion, and an accessible, flexible way to achieve your goals without leaving your day job. In fact, you will only need to step away from your desk for 18 days during the full course of the program.

    How will this help me and my company grow?

    What do you envision for your company in five years? Are you prepared to make it happen?

    "New School students don't just witness the world changing; they lead change."  
    - David E. Van Zandt, President, The New School

    To succeed in 21st-century commerce and industry, you need to cultivate new approaches to solving problems, streamlining systems, and identifying opportunities for growth. The Global Executive Master of Science in Strategic Design and Management, with its design-led approach to learning and global reach, is at the forefront of empowering working professionals to take on the mantle of creative leadership in their companies.

    Whether you want to start your own company or rethink business practice from within, this program will foster entrepreneurship that can productively challenge traditional frameworks and lead meaningful change in the new creative economy. In the program, you take real-world scenarios as the basis for creative and strategic studio projects; everything you learn will be relevant and quickly applicable to your current business context — all without taking you away from your desk on most weekdays, keeping you invested in maximum productivity for minimal sacrifice.

    When am I going to make time?

    If you're a busy working professional who wants to build his or her background in strategic management, you've found the right program. Brilliant design is about creating harmony between component parts — an ethos that lives at the very core of our program, especially when it comes to building our courses around your schedule.

    Our innovative, module-based format is both immersive and flexible, specially tailored to meet the learning styles and preferences of today’s working professional. 

    Spanning a year and a half, the program kicks off with intensives at our Paris campus, interspersed with immersive weekends of accelerated learning and supplemental integrative week-long studio intensives in New York and Shanghai. It has a cohort-based, one-course-at-a-time model that provides a supportive community and clear path to completion — all without requiring you to leave your job.

    Discover the full  course schedule, including a clear breakdown of weekend intensives and online learning modules, designed for maximum flexibility.

    Can I study abroad in Paris if I'm in the NYC MS-SDM program (and vice versa)?

    Because of differences in the academic calendars and delivery formats of the two programs, study abroad is not currently available.

    How is the Global Executive format tailored to meet my need for flexibility?

    While it is true that studying 100 percent online offers you a great deal of flexibility, the Global Executive MS-SDM offers three distinguishing features that make it of special value for and well suited to the needs of today's professionals.

    First, each course kicks off with a face-to-face intensive with your cohort, creating a hybrid learning model (i.e., a mix of online and on-campus learning), which studies show is an optimal way to absorb information and implement what you learn.

    Second, the Global Executive MS-SDM's commitment to building a cohort of peers — who begin and complete the program at the same pace, in the same classes, all together — will ensure that you build a strong network as the program progresses, and with the convenient focus of just taking one course at a time. This network will inevitably offer you invaluable connections as you move through the program and yield professional relationships that will last long after.

    Last, you will not only have the advantage of learning online but also experience the world economy in three dynamic cultural urban hubs: Paris, New York City, and Shanghai.
