The business manager is the person in charge of drawing up and carrying out the strategic business plan of design companies, in the event that they do not have another business structure under their responsibility. This professional's field of activity will greatly vary according to the activity of the design company (graphic design, industrial design, interior design or multi-disciplinary) and to the positioning defined within the company.
