When people speculate why Stanford has such an eye for innovation some point to Silicon Valley and some point to the prestigious design program, the d.School. The interdisciplinary program brings grad students together from across the University and teaches them design thinking with real-life projects that try to solve company’s problems…and even alleviate poverty. Powerful stuff.
That’s probably why the room was packed earlier this month when the GSB Marketing Club, Product Design & Manufacturing Club, and Social Venture Club hosted a panel for GSB students to learn more about the d.School, its process, its classes, and how much time it actually takes to take one of the classes.
