Taught through four 5-week project-based online courses, the Design Thinking and Innovation Specialization meshes a flexible format with videos, readings, assignments and facilitated conversations to simulate the classroom experience. During each course, you'll have access to Darden-trained mentors to help you every step of the way on your design thinking journey.

Courses can be taken in any order, though Design Thinking Part I must be completed before taking Design Thinking Part II.
