Leveraging on the latest pedagogy, the Diploma in Business Innovation and Design (DBID) trains you to create business innovations by using the way designers think.
A Revolutionary Approach to Business education
The first of its kind in Singapore, the course emphasises using a designer's approach or design thinking
to solve business problems and seize new opportunities. Why Design Thinking in Business? The short answer: designers are always creating something new and that is the exact thinking process we need in business to create new opportunities in the volatile, complex and ambiguous environments that modern businesses operate in.
