Ive been accepted to several graduate schools for Industrial Design, some of which are titled as an MFA degree, and others as an MID.

Can anyone explain the specific different between the two degree titles. If anything, I’m mainly concerned with which degree title is more appealing to future employers.

The kind of degree really doesn’t matter. What matters is what you can do for an employer.

The difference between an MFA and an MID will be the type of curriculum they have and the kinds of electives that surround your major studios and thesis project. Generally speaking, and MFA is going to be at an Art School.

What matters most when deciding is finding the program and place that best fits you so you can learn and excel, the develop your skills to get the job… no one looks at the actual letters.
