The program prepares students to lead others, develop a network of colleagues, manage resources, make technological decisions, support organizational knowledge sharing, and secure product funding. Offering an online hybrid format, the program allows you to complete your degree while working full time from anywhere in the world, with only three face-to-face meetings. Course work is customized to integrate with your workplace practice, so you can put your learning into action. Curriculum is organized around three strands: Conceptual Tools, Design Learning, and Action Research. A cohort model offers students a supportive learning environment.
- Flexible online format/learning means you have more control over when and where you learn, and your place of work becomes your place of learning.
