The six-month programme will be delivered primarily through 15 days in-class interactions and a continued interaction online over the period. It will involve (i) three academic camps, (ii) presentations and discussions led by faculty and experts (brand owners, craftsmen, retailers, and consultants), (iii) project critiques, (iv) mentor engagement (v) webinars, (vi) brainstorm and network with contemporary thought leaders in the design space and (vii) launch pad for a showcase to the industry and investors.
In each classroom session, participants are expected to analyze, discuss, and suggest a suitable course of action for the identified dimensions of the business case. Equally important will be the task of understanding concepts and ideas from the readings and articles given to participants.
The participants will be required to build on their respective business cases and prepare for the final launch pad.
