Stanford grad students: supercharge your creative potential this fall and apply for Design Thinking Bootcamp: Experiences in Innovation and Design by September 19, 2012.
Apply here, or learn more about the course.
You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers:
I’m not a Stanford student. Can I apply?
This course is just for Stanford students, but there may be ways for you to engage in the course. If you’re interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I audit Bootcamp?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to audit Bootcamp. For more information on this, email email@example.com.
How much work is this course?
Most students spend at least 10 hours/week outside of class, working in teams, building prototypes, conducting fieldwork, or preparing presentations. You get what you give; students have found the time commitment to be a necessary part of their learning from the course.
Is admission competitive?
We cannot admit all students who apply. The class is limited to 48 students this year to ensure a tight class community and lots of personal feedback. We’re looking for passion, energy, and diversity of disciplines, rather than previous design experience.
When do I find out if I got in?
We will notify all applicants about decisions on Friday, September 21.
Can I launch my startup from within Bootcamp?
The process skills you’ll gain from Bootcamp will be valuable in your journey as an entrepreneur, but this course isn’t focused on launching a product. Your three projects will be on topics that the teaching team selects (see the section below on organizational partners).
What projects do Bootcamp students work on?
Bootcamp students have three real-world projects, one individual (1 week) and two group (3-4 weeks). The group projects are conducted with organizational partners. This year, we have one non-profit partner and one corporate partner – we’ll reveal the partners on the first day of their projects. In the past, partners have included DIRECTV, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Visa, and the American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute.
