Design Sprint

In today’s fast-paced world, speed and agility are critical to generating business value, and corporations, organizations, and start-ups must continuously innovate, and at rapid speed. This required capstone course for the Queen’s Certificate in Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Creativity (QEIC) is designed as an intense, experiential expedition where learners will have the opportunity to practice developing innovative and effective solutions to real-world problems, big and small.

Working in diverse teams and as individuals, students will identify opportunities and propose new solutions in the form of products, services, business models, and experiences. Throughout the course they will have occasions to pitch their ideas and receive peer and expert feedback on them.  The course will culminate in a hack-a-thon style event that will run over 3 days.

Next offering: May 2019

Instructors: Sidneyeve Matrix, Greg Bavington, Jim McLellan

This course is only offered online.


This course is available exclusively to students registered in the QEIC program who have completed all other certificate requirements (except this capstone).
