You’ll discover how, as a UX designer, you can add value to a business at all levels and play a critical role in driving customer engagement by conducting user research, building personas, developing business models, creating wireframes and building prototypes. 

And you’ll learn how to put yourself at the core of both designing new products from first principles and the continuous improvement of existing offerings.

More UX designers are required to display UI (user interface) skills. So how does UI design relate to the wider field of UX?
