This studio explores the overlap between business and design. It brings together the students' backgrounds and current professional and educational contexts, with complex multidisciplinary projects requiring iterative, collaborative and innovative responses. The course is run as a studio: a comprehensive brief derived from a real case, or provided by a live project partner, will require the students to work in research teams to make and then intensively critique prototyped interventions. Teams are expected to present their findings and proposals to colleagues, experts and stakeholders for critical feedback. For this project, students will learn a range of research methods, ideation processes, and theoretical frameworks by which to make reasoned judgments about strategic responses to complicated situations.
Open to: MS in Strategic Design and Management majors only; others by permission of program.
