Career Design and Development will be back in September 2021! 

Our last cohort of the academic year is over, but don't be sad, we are coming back in September 2021 to start the new academic year 2021-2022 to help you design your future!

 Let's start designing your future!

Our Career Design and Development program will give you the right tools to build the career that you have always wanted: a fulfilling one. Learn to analyze your past and present experiences to draw connections and identify patterns, create realistic designs and develop confidence and ease in making life decisions.
Week 1: Introduction and self-discovery

You'll meet your instructor and establish a comfortable group. You will understand the principles of design thinking and the difference between gravity and design problems.

Week 2: True North

In this session, you will learn how to formulate personal work and life views, examine synergies and clashes to draw connection between them and develop your personal "compass".

Week 3: Wayfinding

Learning the right techniques to identify and analyze patterns is essential. You will learn how to perform "good time" journaling and how to apply AEIOU to journal logs related to past and present events.

Week 4: Game Plans

Time to develop your own career plan. 

Week 5: Prototyping

Prototyping is a crucial step in design thinking: you will learn what it is, why it is used and how to apply it to your personal game plans.

Week 6: Taking off

It's important that you understand how job descriptions work. You'll learn technique to co-create your dream career.


Learn design thinking principles applied to your professional life.

What do you want to be when you grown up? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Through a number of reframing exercises and activities like journaling, prototyping and mind mapping, the participants let go of limiting beliefs and embrace a designer-like creative mindset where career co-creation is not only made possible but also made fun!
