Course Motivation:
With technology disrupting firms and increasingly entire industries, the imperative is for students to have a deep understanding of digital innovations that are likely to shape the future and have the capacity to innovate.

This project-based interdisciplinary course positioned at the intersection of digital innovations, design thinking and entrepreneurship is aimed at delivering the competencies demanded by businesses, non-profits and government agencies alike – an understanding of transformational opportunities created by digital technologies and the capacity to innovate.

To help students build the capacity to innovate, the course uses the design thinking framework developed at Stanford University and widely used across the world today.
