Both qualifications promise experiential learning through real-world placements, internships or industry-related project work.

Your newly acquired innovation skillset raises you to a whole new level of employability, in your chosen field or beyond, in roles such as innovation consultant, strategic designer, start-up founder, human-centred researcher and transformation lead.
