In the near future, I believe that you'll be able to get an advanced degree in Business Design.
The educational experience would be applied and pragmatic. Classes would be harder than fluid dynamics (ok maybe not, but close). As a student you would feel as inspired and challenged as you would in the most advanced studio art class. Theory alone wouldn't cut it. If you didn't do something practical by the end of the term in each class, you would fail. We would get things done.
I think I would have achieved a 2.6 average or so coming out of it, but I'd have learned a hell of a lot. Here's an initial list of classes: BDES_Curriculum (full list after the jump)
What would you add? What would the admission requirements and pre-requisites be?
BDES 101 | Creating Options (Do Nothing)
In this core class, we’ll tackle one of the key skills of the business designer: generating, framing and valuing strategic options. We’ll learn idea generation techniques, portfolio comparison strategies, game theory and dig deep into weighing options.
Practicum: Act as a Business Unit president in a dynamic simulation. Create and decide amongst many options as the context and competition changes all around you.
