Put Another B-school student on the Barby

03 May 2009|Darrel Rhea

Following my last post, I recently met Roy Green, Dean of the Business School at UTS (University of Technology, Sydney, an impressive B-school with over 10,000 students). Roy is leading the enlightened charge to bring Design Thinking to Australia’s academic world. While Australia has some great design talent, the country hasn’t really been known for its leadership in design innovation. Now that consulting company’s like Sydney’s “2nd Road” are successfully bringing design strategy to senior business executives, it is inspiring a renaissance in trans-disciplinary thinking skills largely centered on the latest approaches to design, and UTS is moving to aggressively support the shift with up-to-date curriculum.

They may be down under, but they won’t be left behind in this global economy…
