In this YouTube episode, we invited Niket Karajagi to talk about digital thinking and why students should consider getting a certification in the area.

He is also faculty for Design Thinking who specializes in Enterprise Scale-up and Turn-Around Strategy.

In this conversation geared toward students interested in design thinking, he answers three questions:

  • Why Design Thinking? How did you fall into Design Thinking?

  • What are the Design Thinking trends you are seeing in India - in corporations and more importantly, in academia?

  • What advice will you give a student interested to pursue design thinking? What should they major in, what skills do they need?

If you have further questions, please get in touch and we will connect you with Niket.
