Hatching an idea is one thing. Executing it is a whole different ball game. Many great ideas fail because the people behind them lack the skills to bring them to fruition. Robinson’s Certificate in Disruptive Innovation and Entrepreneurship fills that knowledge gap.
Over the course of the program, students not only explore tools that stimulate creative thinking but also design compelling value propositions, develop viable and profitable business models and learn to pitch to investors.
Leverage the Known and Unknown in Our Innovation Studio
What truly sets the certificate apart is our Innovation Studio, which provides an experiential environment for networking and collaboration. As part of an interdisciplinary team, you will test prototypes, design compelling and competitive value propositions, and pitch to prospective customers and investors. You also will develop critical soft skills like emotional intelligence, communication and social influence/trust. Via a collision of perspectives and concepts, you will become comfortable with ambiguity and experimentation, and build the courage to explore and leverage the known—and unknown—technologies that are profoundly impacting our world.
