Darden is one of the first business schools to partner with Coursera, an educational platform that offers free “massive online open courses” (MOOCs). Along with Princeton, Stanford and other partner schools, Darden aims to impact the global business world and create opportunities for connections and synergies in the pursuit of new knowledge.
Currently, Darden Professor Jeanne M. Liedtka is offering a five-week course on Design Thinking for Business Innovation. This course, designed for anyone interested in innovation in an organizational context, answers the following questions:
- What is design thinking?
- How can we prepare ourselves to be leaders of innovation?
- How can you use design thinking to generate ideas?
- How can you use design thinking to test ideas?
- What kind of changes can we expect to see coming out of the design thinking process?
Registration for the course will be open until Thursday, 5 December. MOOCs are a great way to learn more about Darden’s top-ranked faculty and further your business knowledge before enrolling in business school.
