The Design Thinking International Immersion course is an ideal course for any student interested in further honing their human-centered design skills and applying these skills to generate business value.
Set in the beautiful city of Milan, students will utilize their ethnographic research skills to understand unmet consumer needs by immersing themselves in the culture of Italians. Both the language and the foreign setting provide the ideal environment to truly immerse yourself in the proverbial shoes of the user.
Students will take the course with Università Cattolica students, working in multi-national teams on a client project over the course of the two weeks. We will have the opportunity to work with leading design firms in Milan on various stages of the project. Teams will ultimately present their innovation recommendation to the client.
