What is IDT?

Download Study Program

An immersive learning experience where participants​ will learn to identify, generate and implement innovative solutions. Innovation and Design Thinking (IDT) is a four month program focused on the design and implementation of innovative solutions that meet the emerging needs of real world users. International experts mentor students as they learn about design thinking and the three pillars of innovation: viability (business), feasibility (capability) and desirability (people).


Can this idea return the investments necessary to achieve success? Economic viability means the product or service being developed has to meet financial goals related to revenue, profit or the internal rate of return.


Do we have the capability required to produce this idea? Can we develop and commercialize this innovation? Feasibility means our organization has the internal capability to transform the idea into a real world solution.


Is this idea really appealing to the people we are trying to sell it to? The innovation, either in the shape of a desirable product, or in the meaningful nature of the experience of the service provided, has to offer an emotional connection and make a strong tie to people’s.



World-class faculty who bring together fresh field expertise, plus sound academic experience, provide this program a unique perspective and real curricular value.
