Why it's on the list: As part of the Weatherhead School of Management's "Manage by Designing" initiative, launched in 2002, the MBA curriculum now requires all students to take a two-semester course in either "Managing Design Opportunities" or in "Sustainable Value." They must also study week-long courses on topics such as systems thinking, and are taught hands-on skills such as sketching and prototyping.
