As we enter the golden age of design in startups, highly talented user-interface and product designers are becoming ever more important.
Some companies leading the charge are Apple, Path, Pinterest, Square, and Airbnb. What those companies have in common is that design is at the core of their businesses.
But which school is best suited to get you the design job you want?
Over the past couple of months, we conducted a survey to find the top 25 design schools in the world.
All of these schools are comparable in terms of academics, quality of staff, and amazing campuses. But what matters most is how valuable these schools really are.
Of our 633 respondents to the survey, 87.8% said they studied or participated in a college-level design program.
Most of the respondents were either art directors (26.9%) or product designers (30.3%). The vast majority of respondents (76.6%) said skills and knowledge were the most valuable asset their respective design programs offered.
