Solve real challenges

Focus on design and entrepreneurial challenges to develop and test the products and services of the future. You'll work individually and in teams on real briefs set by real clients.

This course has taken me outside of my comfort zone constantly in every module and has taught me how to deal with the fast changing digital world in my professional life.
