Create Lasting, Disruptive Change

In this experiential  elective course now offered for MBA and undergraduate students 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
