Looking to gain design-thinking expertise?
Immerse yourself in this increasingly popular methodology at the Center for Design Thinking at Manhattanville College (CDT). Opened in 2019, the CDT is one of the only such centers located on the campus of a liberal arts institution.
DESIGN THINKING IS THE FUTURE
Complex problems need innovative solutions - that’s where design thinking comes in.
A systematic and creative approach to problem-solving, design thinking starts with empathy and uses collaborative and participatory methods to understand problems and achieve complete solutions. It’s the prevalent thinking you’ll find among today’s top businesses and nonprofit organizations, and it fits well with Manhattanville’s mission to help students obtain marketable skills while learning to become ethical and socially responsible leaders.
At Manhattanville College, students of any major can study design thinking to incorporate its principles in any discipline and learn to become positive, creative changemakers both on campus and off. They also have the chance to immerse themselves further and earn a Certificate in Design Thinking.
