Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom Touts (and Tweets) CCA's New MBA in Public Policy Design Program

Come to the open house April 24 at CCA (San Francisco campus)

Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom today used Twitter to showcase CCA’s MBA in Public Policy Design program, which offers a new kind of degree at the intersection of professional skills, policy contexts, sustainable values, and design-thinking techniques.

CCA's MBA in Policy Policy and the MBA in Strategic Foresight program follow in the footsteps of the groundbreaking MBA in Design Strategy, which BusinessWeek hailed as "one of the world's best design programs."

All three design programs are chaired by Nathan Shedroff, a pioneer in the experience design movement.
