Create Lasting, Disruptive Change

In this experiential MBA elective course at Rotman, students will be exposed to leading research on the ‘root causes’ of notoriously complex gender-based challenges, conduct fieldwork to deeply understand such challenges from a ‘human perspective’, refine challenges into tangible problem statements and build & test prototypes to present to academic and government leaders. By participating in this course, students will:

  • Develop a sound understanding of Rotman business design theory
  • Obtain practical experience in applying design-thinking framework, inclusive of advanced interview & reframing techniques, to complex challenges
  • Gain a deeper understanding of gender-based economic challenges
  • Develop insights into market and social innovation
  • Work with industry and academic leaders to design innovative solutions for real-world problems
  • Get comfortable advocating for controversial points of view and preparing to manage opposition and conflict
