Hi Sudipa,

I'm not sure if I can answer your question but I'll try. There are a few schools offering a Master degree in Service Design.

However, my opinion is that Service Design is a team effort. A service is very complex and this no one can do alone. The key is collaboration across functions and departments.

So we set up teams of experts, but experts with an open mind and a broad interest. They are also Generalists and good facilitators. Thus a Service Design team can often use a person with a background in Industrial design. Just like it needs ICT, Marketing, Business and other functions.

If I were you I'd learn the skills of facilitation, be open minded and curious, learn other languages and learn the value of facilitating multidisciplinary teams.

Hi. This is an open question to all. 

I would like to know what sort of background or qualification service designers have?

Is it a specialized course that you can study(such as industrial design?). Or is it a skill that designers learn - ie can an industrial designer become a service designer?

I currently study industrial design so I am interested in learning more about how it can be applied to other fields. 'Design thinking' is a broad skill that is learned from many different fields of design.
