Thank you for your interest in this summer’s executive education courses at Carnegie Mellon University. We regret to inform you “Design Leadership & Change” and the “Service Design Weekend Workshop” have been cancelled. Please check back next year for new professional development opportunities.
As traditional roles between disciplines and collaborators are becoming blurred, designers are finding themselves in positions of increasing influence.
To effectively lead clients, boards of directors, community groups or
transdisciplinary teams, new skills and perspectives are required along
with an understanding of one’s personal leadership potential.
“Design Leadership & Change” is an executive-education course
designed for mid-career professional designers who want to learn how to
lead with their strengths for more successful outcomes. This
user-directed, open studio style course is intended to address the
individual leadership concerns of each participant, and to give
participants the tools they need to increase their capacity as leaders
in day-to-day situations.
At the end of this transformative week, you will
walk away with more confidence about your leadership ability, tools to
immediately elevate your influence and a clear understanding of how to
push your career to the next level.
From June 17–19, Carnegie Mellon’s School of Design and Tepper School of Business will also offer a wellness-focused “Service Design Weekend Workshop”,
co-taught by Shelly Evenson and Hugh Dubberly, for a separate fee. AIGA
members are eligible for discounted pricing on the workshop as well as a
combination package that includes the workshop along with “Design Leadership & Change” to maximize your learning.
At Carnegie Mellon’s School of Design, we believe that design is a

products, communications, ideas and services within continually changing
social, environmental and economic landscapes. Drawing on the strengths
of the liberal arts and the scientific and creative disciplines, the
School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University prepares students to
solve problems, facilitate transdisciplinary collaboration and become
catalysts for innovation and social change.
The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon consistently ranks
among the top business schools in the world. The school’s legacy is
closely tied to our pioneering work in introducing management science to
the marketplace and B-school arena. A commitment to knowledge discovery
via interdisciplinary collaboration is at the heart of our academic
philosophy. As one of the most technologically elite universities in the
world, a dedication to cutting edge learning and application underlies
everything that we do—with an approach to business management that
allows our students to make a significant impact in business and in
