They will facilitate strategy sessions, goal-setting exercises, and organizational planning. Without typical business distractions, you can concentrate fully on the subject matter at hand.

During the program, you and your team will engage in a Capstone project that applies what you've learned to solve a real-world problem. At the program’s conclusion, you will have completed your very own Design Thinking Portfolio.
