The University of Virginia's Darden School Executive Education has launched a new online specialization in "Design Thinking and Innovation."

The new specialization will teach participants how to leverage design thinking tools to lead successful innovation efforts.

"Design Thinking is problem-solving method used to fuel innovation and organic growth and we created this Specialization because the students who had taken our project-based class wanted more,” according to Darden professor Jeanne Liedtka.
