How does the MCISI work?
The Master of Creative Intelligence and Strategic Innovation (MCISI) has been designed as an innovative and flexible program to help your top talent develop and master the critical practices specific to the business challenges you face, and uplift capability throughout your organisation.
The MCISI program consists of five different types of learning activities delivered through a blended learning environment, combining the best of face-to-face, digital face-to-face and online learning – providing an engaging, collaborative space to learn wherever your team are based.
The degree consists of small units of subjects (‘microcredentials’) that can be completed as needed, to make sure study fits in with, and is directly applicable to work-life.
Designed for adaptability we work with your organisation to develop a tailored learning program based around what your organisation needs, when you need it, and wherever your teams choose to learn (work or home).
1. Core subjects
Explore new ways of thinking, anchored around the key concepts of Complexity, Transdisciplinarity, Ecosystems & Networks and Futuring.
2. Key enabling methodologies
Master new tools and methods for practice (such as fields of thought, frame creation & co-evolution, theories of change, future value & impact, creative practices, changing minds).
Deep dive into specialist subjects for in-depth knowledge in specific areas.
Come together with participants from across a range of sectors and organisations to apply the methods and tools while taking on a complex real-world challenge in hands-on studios.
5. Bespoke innovation labs
Organisations can choose to have three bespoke, in-house labs where participants:
- Understand the structural innovation needs of your organisation
- Create experimental projects to investigate how these needs could be met
- Develop strategies to create the innovation ecosystem within the organisation
As the program is intended for transdisciplinary cohorts – bringing together a range of roles working together across your organisation – UTS will work closely with your organisation to identify and curate the most appropriate learning journey and subjects.
In the interests of public safety, COVID-19 has required us to move to completely online delivery modes for now, which includes a dynamic range of online and digital face-to-face learning experiences. We will be reviewing our delivery format as the post-COVID situation allows.
