The Carthage College Master of Science in Business Design and Innovation (MSc) program has welcomed its inaugural class. 

The class includes 21 students from across nine different undergraduate majors. They have deemed themselves “the Carthage Innovators” and adopted the hashtag #DisruptTheNow. The graduate students began their intensive journey in August 2017 and will complete their Master of Science degree in May 2018.

This program includes a capstone course in Barcelona, where they will attend start-up school to gain insight on international entrepreneurship, and apply their business design and innovation skills.  

Please join me in congratulating “the Carthage Innovators”:
