About

About this project

The goal of this project is to give students an opportunity to tackle the industry challenges you and your business are facing. What can you do today to thrive in 5 years? How might you meet the needs of your customers in the future? Student teams will present documented research of your needs and challenges, a strategic plan, concept, and/or prototypes for moving your organization forward.

Over the course of the project you will host our students at your office and work hands on with our methodology over 8 weeks as students explore creative solutions to design, business, cultural and leadership challenges.

This is how it works

  • 1

    All full-time programs in Stockholm and Karlskrona are divided into several projects, and in some of the projects, the students work with real clients on real briefs. The learning objectives, topics, length and start dates vary between the different projects. Find the project that matches your organization’s needs, and follow the steps to apply to become a Learning Partner.

  • 2

    We will review your brief to make sure it meets the needs of the student learning experience and is aligned with the program objectives and learning outcomes of the specific project.

  • 3

    If your brief is chosen we’ll set you up so you are ready till when you start collaborating with the group of students, which could be anywhere from a team of 4-7 students all the way to our cross-program briefs with over 200 students.

    During the project, your main contact is the student group. You will collaborate with them as you would with a creative agency; having meetings, check-ins, workshops and preparing the needed data and insights from your organization. A typical project span 4-8 weeks.

    The desired outcome and expected delivery differ between the different projects. For example, it could be a creative concept, a strategy, a mockup, a prototype, an analysis or a workshop or the outcomes of a design sprint.
