The ﬁrst MFA program at the intersection of design, social innovation and enterprise.
Design has a place wherever creativity and innovation are needed: in every business, NGO, community, society and government.
MFA Design for Social Innovation was born of the conviction that an abundant and sustainable future will not be realized through the work of any single silo of experts, country or generation. It will come from the integration of wisdom from all of them, from game-changing collaboration between them, and the application of creativity and new thinking.
For students, this is the map, the tool kit and the community of mentors and partners - the doorway into a life of purpose, impact and fulﬁllment.
For business, this is an opportunity to be a partner in designing a resilient future along with us.
