Learning about business


I am halfway through a degree in industrial design and have a desire to learn about business. I know once I am out in the real world working I will pick things up however I wondered if there are any books, magazines, newspapers (preferably available in the UK) etc people could recommend that will help give me at least a basic understanding of the issue’s that affect the economy and companies specifically in the design field.

Thanks for any help

design week, the economist…the news…the apprentice…dragons den?

The design council has some good info and case studies on design & business.

Businessweeks innovation section is a good place to start.
