About the MFA program

The MFA.DESIGN is the first graduate design program in the Gulf region. Placed amidst a great transformation of the state of Qatar, the program gives students a unique chance to both learn from this historical process and to influence its future development.

“This is a great moment to get involved with the MFA.DESIGN program. In the next ten years, there will be lots of design activity in Doha, to prepare the city for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. We will be working with the best of the young local talent to turn them into world-class designers, capable of making contributions in many different fields: from branding and communications to interior and architectural design,” said Mr. Boym.
