Purpose of the Program

Leadership infused with Business Design Thinking: Empowering aspiring professionals to lead change with innovation.

This program develops leaders with a forward perspective, underpinned by contemporary business knowledge and research. The program is infused with principles of design, enabling students to create, lead and manage complex initiatives within uncertain globally connected environments.

Business leadership grounded in design means that as a graduate, you understand the importance of analysing the architecture of business problems and the value that prototyping, creativity and synthesis bring to the creation of sustainable solutions that are end user driven. You will be equipped with the skills to effectively drive innovation and change so as to create ongoing value for your organisation and the communities it serves.

The program uses an adult and facilitated learning approach and authentic assessment. Learning activities and experiences are a combination of issue based seminars, case study analysis, exploration of readings and research, and facilitated class discussions.  Assessment tasks will most often require you to integrate relevant academic theory with contemporary practice and apply this within the workplace.
