The curriculum will combine dynamic lectures, readings, and discussion with hands-on, practical application through individual projects. Graduates from the program will be able to lead and think farther and faster, with measurable and more meaningful results.

The seven-month Leading by Design Fellows Program is structured as a series of on-campus “residency” weekends, once per month, with online study and communication in between. This schedule allows working professionals from all over North America the flexibility to maintain their careers while keeping in close contact with each other, faculty, and program staff.

CCA has a 100-year tradition of pioneering programs that bridge the arts and society. BusinessWeek just named CCA one of the top 30 design schools in the world. This new program builds on that foundation of excellence and will help push forward the fields of design thinking, innovation, and sustainability.
