Today’s competitive and dynamic landscape requires individuals and firms to re-imagine how they approach business. Solving complex problems often involves a multi-disciplinary team working collaboratively, combining both creative and analytical approaches. Design Thinking employs a set of methods and corresponding mindsets, promoting a human-centered approach to innovation. This process concentrates on a rigorous means of understanding human behavior to generate deep insights, articulate needs and desires, develop design solutions, then critique and test those solutions.
The Design Thinking Certificate Program at Missouri State University focuses on innovative thinking as a means of designing products and services. You will learn new ways to manage complexity, serve human needs, and create sustainable products benefitting both people and businesses alike. Throughout the program, you'll be guided by professional designers and educators who are experts in their field.
