Every semester 120 students and recent graduates from all over the world come to Potsdam to study Design Thinking. In 16 weeks they experience Design Thinking as a holistic approach to design strategic innovation and transformation processes.

Together with project partners from companies, NGOs or political institutions they develop creative solutions for complex problems in small, mixed teams. During the whole semester they are accompanied by our diverse team of experienced Design Thinking coaches.
