This engaged learning course builds on AEM 3110/AEM 5110/NBA 5180 Design & Innovation by providing students with an opportunity to apply lessons and theories of design research, process and strategy to a client-based project. Serving as a Grand Challenge capstone course, the class will work with a social enterprise client, and under that rubric, the class will tackle issues and challenges such as new product, service or business model development; organizational structure and growth; and external threats and opportunities. Working in multidisciplinary teams with real deadlines and deliverables with an external partner, students will use a design toolkit and mindset for creative problem solving specifically related to a Grand Challenge. This collaboration will allow students to immerse themselves in a professional setting in which they will be exposed to the relevant industry and players, explore business opportunities, and develop innovative concepts and propose solutions.
