DIPLOMA IN ENTREPRENEURIAL DESIGN

KPT/JPS (PA 2250) 03/18

Enter the vibrant world of creative enterprise.

Innovation and entrepreneurship are at the heart of the thriving contemporary design scene. Creative talent and design skills will give graduates a head start in the industry, but business skills and knowledge will sustain them in the long run.

The Diploma in Entrepreneurial Design, the first of its kind in Malaysia, was developed to stretch the boundary of creative and design education to meet the demand of rapidly changing business landscape. Through our multidisciplinary approach, innovation and entrepreneurship, we train students to be a thinking designer, a resourceful problem solver and an innovative entrepreneur.

Students will master the basics of design such as visual scripting, sustainable designing, plus fashion and store merchandising. They will also gain practical experience in conceptualising and developing brands and business plans, and learn business management skills to start their own enterprise.

With the Malaysian Design Council (MRM) as our key partner, we are making waves in design education by fostering a greater exchange of ideas and providing recognition for young talents that we nurture for the creative economy.
