Caroline Lu, one of BusinessWeek's "21 People Who Will Change Business"
BusinessWeek magazine has just honored the MBA in Design Strategy at California College of the Arts (CCA) with a spot on its list of the top 30 design programs in the world. The list represents the final results of extensive research and the polling of prominent academics, designers, consultants, and business managers on the best MBA or master's programs that integrate design thinking and business.
BusinessWeek also just named Graduate Program in Design alum Caroline Lu one of its "21 People Who Will Change Business." Lu, who received her degree from CCA in 2008, works at the Center for Innovation, a department within the Mayo Clinic that looks to improve the patient experience by developing better services for health-care delivery. Her job calls upon her background as a graphic designer and design thinker as well as her own experience surviving cancer.
