Students use design thinking and planning processes to find and solve business problems. By working collaboratively with their peers to explore ideas and solutions, they will test, iterate and apply critical and creative thinking to make decisions to complex, 'real-life' problems, with the thinking of designers and innovators.
The course is structured around three key contexts: designing business, sustaining business and transforming business. The teacher will select two key contexts to formulate the course. The focus is on innovation, project management, financial literacy as well as global, local and digital perspectives.
