With disruptive innovation essentially redefining communication and business models, KDU Academic Head of Creative Arts Pouline Koh Chai Lin has great plans for the first intake of the Diploma students in Entrepreneurial Design.
According to Pouline Koh, “In today’s dynamic world, having a disruptive innovation capability is mandatory for any company to transform or create new markets.”
“However to initiate a disruptive innovation programme, it requires new mindsets and behaviours. Hence, in KDU we see the importance to inculcate these qualities and competencies via design thinking and design doing approaches on students to prepare them for the future job market.”
