The Oct. 9, 2006, issue of BusinessWeek magazine contains a special report on the globe’s top innovation and design schools. This “D-School” report card includes a listing of the world’s top design and business programs and includes the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP).
This is BusinessWeek's the first-ever survey and listing of top design schools and programs – schools that are “graduating the innovators companies hunger for,” according to the report.
To arrive at their head-of-the-class listing, the magazine convened a 24-person advisory board that included employers like Whirlpool, Siemens and BMW who are hiring the new design thinkers and talent.
In addition to DAAP – already highly ranked in other surveys and by other media – other schools that made BusinessWeek’s world-class listing are Oxford University in England, London’s Royal College of Art, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University to name just a few.
