DesignWorks Application

Learn how to apply design principles such as problem framing, qualitative research, ideation, prototyping, and other exciting methods to innovation. 

The Details

20 students will be selected to work in teams to learn design thinking tools by engaging in real-world projects with local businesses we have already sourced.

The experience and workshops will be facilitated by 2nd year Sloan mentors and our coaches, consultants from the prominent design firm Continuum. One of the events will be held at Continuum's amazing office in Newton, MA. The final presentations of your work will be hosted at a fun celebration with your peers and leadership from Sloan and Continuum.

The 7-week experience includes workshops, mentorship meetings, and project team meetings, and will provide you a deep understanding of how human-centered design thinking can help leaders innovate within their organizations. Participants are required to attend all the workshops due to the team-based, sequential nature of this learning experience.
