The holiday season is around the corner and we are going to take a break before coming back in 2014 for the first ever intake of our Entrepreneurial Design Diploma programme (yay!).
This programme started off as a pilot project we called DesignerCEOs back in 2012. Our zakka workshops received overwhelming response which assured us that there are a lot of people out there who want to be designers and their own bosses at the same time.
Immediately after our Diploma of Entrepreneurial Design being approved and recognised by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA), we signed a Letter of Intent with Malaysia Design Council (MRM) to have them on board as our affiliate partner.
After two months of preparation and with full support from KDU management and the School of Communication and Creative Arts (SCCA) family members (lecturers and students), we launched our programme in June 2013. Photos of the launch event can be viewed here while the video to explain about the programme can be viewed over here.
We ran an Instagram contest titled #fashionbyme and we were very impressed by the quality and amount of submission.
Besides running our own contest, we also took part in The Aloft + UNICEF Check out for Children – Modern Art Exhibition with participation from KDU Communication students and Creative Arts ADH as advisor. The results, 3 students went into the final round and a second runner up winner.
We also introduced our course to one of the schools in the Klang Valley via our #thinkoutloud session to encourage the younger generation to create their own startup ideas in our move to prepare them for the changing industries.
We hope students and parents are able to look at design in a different perspective especially when we have business management being incorporated into our modules. Turning future designers into creative assets for commercialisation is our biggest mission!
