Welcome to the Design Thinking Certificate Program at Pace University Lubin School of Business
Today’s interconnected, competitive, and dynamic landscape requires individuals and firms to re-imagine how they approach business. Solving complex problems often involves a multi-disciplinary team working collaboratively, combining both creative and analytical approaches. Design thinking employs a set of methods and corresponding mindsets that promotes a human-centered approach to innovation. It concentrates on rigorous means of understanding human behavior to generate deep insights, articulate needs and desires, develop design solutions and, finally, critique and test those solutions.

You will learn new ways to manage complexity, serve human needs, and create sustainable products that serve both people and businesses alike. Throughout the program, you will be guided by professional designers and educators who are experts in their field.

What Other's are saying...
This Design Thinking program was a really great experience. As a Logistics and Supply Chain professional, my work was technical as I delved into the creating lean processes using innovative ideas to get my goals accomplished. Design Thinking made me connect with the client on a personal level as I was able to put myself into their shoes to understand how they felt when experiencing our service.
This was a fantastic course! I really appreciate the insights each of the professors shared. It was well organized, and the lessons were digestible and easy to understand. I also really appreciated how the course used examples that were applicable to everyone regardless of their field or industry.
It introduced concepts that I knew I would want to use in my everyday life - and offered a very hands on approach to learning the concepts. I was a little skeptical of some of the activities in these modules - but being challenged to actually get hands on with prototyping and interacting with a design partner really paid off.
