MBA Open Class Report “What is Design Thinking?” held on December 15th, 2022.


On December 15th, Shizenkan University had an online open class on the topic of Design Thinking presented by Adjunct Associate Professor, Hironori Iwasaki.


As humans face complex and unprecedented problems such as COVID-19, design thinking has been  introduced as a key concept and methodology to tackle such issues. According to associate professor Iwasaki, design thinking is a useful measure to identify and solve problems in creative ways. Cases such as “PillPack” and “VEGI-BUS” are fine examples in which design thinking has utilized UX into economic values.


During the question and answer session, participants discussed the future trends of design thinking. “Only humans can wish and envision the desirable future no matter how AI evolves. The feelings and sensitivities such as  fun and play have an essential role”, professor Iwasaki suggested.


Through the Project-Based Learning course sponsored by Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. at Shizenkan University, you will learn the ability to design new services using design thinking methodology, build a mindset to continuously build and rebuild ideas and concepts, and develop a style of leadership that fosters creative collaboration. We look forward to your participation in future open classes.
