In order to implement Design Thinking as a part of the learning environment and institution’s culture, both faculty and students must be capable of adapting to change. In the current scenario, it is essential to prepare a management student to become both entrepreneurs and intrapreneur, and this can be done effectively by imbibing design thinking approach.

Design thinking in B-schools can be incorporated across all the courses and the functional areas including Admissions, Teaching, Examinations, Research and Training. The purpose is to make students competent enough to identify the problems existing around them, find viable solutions and implement them. In the process, if they are able to develop a product which can have commercial utility and bring revenues, it would be a great achievement for them as well as for the B-school.
