HPI School of Design Thinking

The HPI School of Design Thinking offers a supplementary training program in Design Thinking that is unique in Europe.

Design Thinking

Think new, work differently. Design Thinking has become more than just a creative process.

For Students

The Design Thinking program at the HPI D-School is aimed at students of all disciplines and nationalities. Participants study how innovations are developed in a team during the course of one or two semesters. 

For Project Partner

Our project partners use the HPI D-School as a think-tank - and even more as a “do-tank” - to find solutions to their corporate and organizational issues.

For Professionals

In the fall of 2009 the HPI Academy opened its doors at Hasso Plattner Institute as a provider of advanced training. Since this time the HPI Academy has been offering a high quality Design Thinking education for industry professionals.  

For Researcher

In the Hasso Plattner Design Thinking Research Program (HPDTRP) in Potsdam and Stanford, questions are investigated as to how Design Thinking can be improved, where its past successes lie, and what area of implementation makes sense in an organizational setting.

Events

The HPI D-School in Potsdam is the European center for a growing Design Thinking community. Workshops, talks and other DT-related events are held on a regular basis as part of our program.
