According to the Creative Industry Report 2016, Switzerland’s design industry is one of the largest sub-sectors of the Swiss creative economy, with a good 10,000 companies and almost 25,000 employees. A Bachelor's degree in Spatial Design enables you to launch your career in numerous capacities in this field. Depending on which Major you choose, you could work in agencies for experience, service or interaction design, in creative studios for immersive brand experiences, or even in scenography and classic offices for interior design. Career prospects range from staging tourist events to corporate design and brand worlds, to retail and trade fair architecture, exhibitions and museums, stage design, lighting design, and audio-visual media.
